Hand for hand

Hand for Hand play occurs is where tables start playing hands at the same time. This happens in tournaments where players are close to moving to the next highest prize money bracket. If during hand for hand play, players at one or more tables finish before others, they will wait until all table finish before the next hand.

e.g "I was shortest stack when hand for hand play came in, but a guy on another table got knocked out, which put me in the next bracket."
