Playing Poker Tournaments
Poker tournaments are very popular online and offer
players the chance to play online with a set amount of money meaning that responsible poker playing is made slightly easier with a controlled amount being entered for each tournament. There are a
myriad of tournaments available each day at any time for players
who wish to play for both low and high stakes.
Play poker tournaments carefully though as buying
into a large tournament with lots of players will be difficult to win so if your new to poker, play
the smaller games first and play responsibly.
Paddy Power Poker for example offer tournaments, almost by the minute and BetFred Poker tournaments can also be entered on a regular basis. The enterance fees are paid into a pot for the winners and payouts
are generally based on the number of players in the tournament but
typically the first 10 to 20 places are paid a cash prize with the
winner taking around 30% to 40%.
Satellite tournaments are also available to play which
allow you enterance into large tournaments if your placed. This
is a better way to gain access to large tournaments where the buy-in
can be thousands of pounds. Watch your bankroll though and remember that it's real money your playing with so don't gamble in any game with more than you can afford to lose.
Most of the online poker sites post lists of upcoming tournaments to players can check and see what's going on in the poker rooms without ever having to actually run the poker site itself. This information is available on the sites and is freely available to everyone.
As stated previously, poker tournaments can be played
at any time, the best way to enter is to download a poker
room and have a go playing in a freeroll. Freeroll tournaments don't cost anything to take part in. Poker tournament play is one of the fastest growing types of games in any of the online poker sites and there is a wide range of options available to players.
