You can increase the number of chips you have at tournament tables with the rebuy and add-on features. The main purpose of rebuys is to allow players to add more chips to a table if they lost some money at the beginning of a tournament. They are typically allowed to use the rebuy feature in the first part of a tournament for a certain period of time. Rebuys are available to players whose chip count is lower or equal to the amount they started the tournament with.
Add-ons are offered in the later stages of a tournament and are available to all players who want to increase their chip count. Some tournaments have several add-on periods while others only have one or none at all.
If rebuys and add-ons are available in a particular tournament, you'll see a sign in the 'Type' column in the main lobby.
A tournament's rebuy and add-on information can be found in the tournament lobby.

If you would like to increase your chip count during a tournament you can do so during the add-on periods.
