The largest upcoming online poker tournaments

Young or old, poker tournaments are waiting for you to join the ranks of thousands of players trying to win the big sums week after week.

Read on, get excited about these huge online tournaments and prepare to spend 12 hours on your screen as you take the next million serious online casinos with you. The best online poker tournaments are usually found in the biggest internet poker rooms.

But what are the differences? There is a lot of money that can be won in online poker tournaments on multiple poker sites. If you want to get into the non-stop action of the online poker tournament series, you’ll find everything you need to know here.

What are the best poker tournaments?

Since Chris Moneymaker won the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2003, interest in tournament poker has skyrocketed. Once a backroom game played only by professional players in the corners of Las Vegas casinos, poker has become the mainstream culture. Poker has found its way into homes around the world, while people watch big poker tournaments on their televisions and play in online poker rooms on their computers.

The biggest live poker tournament in history was in 2006 when the WSOP-main event reached 8,773 players and sent the later winner Jamie Gold home with a first-place win of $12 million. Winning a poker tournament of this size certainly requires a lot of luck, but that doesn’t mean tournament poker isn’t a game of skill. The best players have an advantage over the rest of the field and over time will win more than their less qualified counterparts.

But it is the element of luck that makes tournament poker so attractive. Anyone with a chip and a chair has the chance to beat the best in the world and come home a millionaire.

Multi-Table Tournaments (MTTs)

Multi-table tournaments are the standard in online poker. As with all tournaments, you pay a buy-in fee and receive a stack of chips. When these chips are gone, you are eliminated from the tournament (unless it is a rebuy tournament, in which case you can buy another stack of chips if you are attacked within a certain period of time from the start).

MTTs, as one might assume, take place at several tables with a certain number of players per table and have a precise starting time. When players begin to fold from the tournament, and the number of players at a table becomes uneven to the rest of the field, that table is “broken”, and players are randomly distributed to other tables with empty seats. It’s hard to win MTTs, but when you do, it’s usually a big win. The biggest online poker sites now offer multi-day, multi-million dollar online poker tournament series several times a year.

Sit & Go’s (SNGs)

Sit & Go’s were developed online and are still incredibly popular. A Sit & Go usually consists of only one or two tables and starts as soon as every seat is occupied. Most poker sites have Sit & Go’s that start every few minutes or even seconds. The payouts usually go to the top three players, depending on the number of tables. On some of the major poker sites on the Internet, sit-and-gos start so fast that it’s almost difficult to select and open the seat in time. Sit & Go’s are an excellent format for new poker players as they can experience tournament poker without having to compete with hundreds of other players.

Shootout Tournaments

Shootouts are a combination of MTTs and Sit & Go’s. The entire tournament will have a huge field, but you will only play at one table at a time until there is only one person left at each table. The winner of each table goes to the next round, and the action is repeated until there is a winner. The number of rounds depends on the field size, but if you continue to win each Sit & Go table, you win the tournament.

Turbo Tournaments

Online poker is already moving faster than live poker, but if you want to boost the action, you might want to try a turbo tournament. Turbo tournaments are only standard MTTT or Sit & Go’s, where blind levels rise quickly, so fast play and quick decisions are a necessity. If you only have a limited amount of time, turbo tournaments are a fantastic way to get a lot of action in a short period of time.

Poker Tournaments in Online Casinos – Conclusion

Almost every online poker site has a huge weekly poker tournament with a huge guaranteed prize pool. These tournaments are incredibly popular because players know that they get a huge prize pool. A successful tournament player needs to understand how to play.
