The Single-Table Tournament
Tournament rounds in one-table events are often quite short, greatly increasing the luck factor. Because of this, when two or three players are left, they will often decide to chop the tournament (split the prize money either evenly or in accord with some negotiation).

Some B&M casinos do offer single table events that aren't satellites, but these are fairly uncommon (they are common on the Internet, where they are called "sit and go" tournaments). In most casinos, even when a single table event is a satellite, the winner need not use the money (or tournament buy-in chips called lammers) to enter that day's event.
