While the blinds in a cash game never change, that's not the case in a tournament where blinds go up at regular intervals, as do the antes.The other big difference between tournaments and cash games, of course, concerns the way winners are rewarded.While money is won after every hand of a cash game, in a tournament no one wins anything until the end when the top finishers divide the prize pool according to a predetermined schedule of payouts.Usually only a relatively small percentage of participants make the money, with the largest prizes reserved for the winner and those who make the final table.Deep stacks necessarily become more shallow as the tournament progresses, affecting players' decisions when playing particular hands.Then when the bubble approaches and bursts and the payouts begin, that also greatly affects players' strategy.

While the turnout of 74 players is the smallest in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship history, the record-low attendance has been well compensated by the appearance of two iconic players: Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan.After a tumultuous day at the felt, Ivey managed to catapult himself into pole position late in the day, leading the last 38 players upon completion of the second day.Only twelve players will walk away with a profit and it's likely that Day 3 will bring the tournament close to the bubble but not into the money.Just bought in to my first tournament at the wsop in quite a long time.— Tom Dwan (@TomDwan) Having spent more time playing poker in Asia than on American soil in the last few years, Ivey and Dwan have been welcome attractions to the PPC field.The famous pro showed up right at the late registration buzzer but, unfortunately for him, his appearance was short-lived as he fell in tonight's final level.
