What is Add-On in Poker Terms?

In poker, an “add-on” typically refers to an optional additional purchase of chips that players can make during certain tournament formats.

Add-ons are typically offered at a specific point in the tournament, often at the end of the rebuy period or during a designated break. Add-ons are open to all participants regardless of their chip count. It allows players to increase their chip stack and potentially improve their chances of success as the tournament progresses.

However, add-ons are entirely optional, and players are not obligated to take advantage of this opportunity.
