Learning to play in poker tournaments can be advantageous, since you will go through different strategies from different opponents. The more a person plays poker, the more an expert becomes. Furthermore, cash prizes and gifts make the tournament an activity that becomes very enjoyable. There are several types of poker tournaments. Let’s address a few of them:
Sit and Go
For this mode, the seats are distributed in order of arrival and the poker game is initiated as soon as there are enough players (usually 9 or 10). You can unregister from the seats if they all have not been occupied.
Formed by several tables, where each table can start with 9 or 10 players. As players are eliminated, tables are arranged so that always has the same amount of players in each. For instance, a poker tournament of 50 players have 5 tables with 10 players each. After five eliminations, we have 5 tables with 9 players each. After the first 10 deletions, one leaves the table and began to have 4 tables with 10 players each.
This poker system follows until only one table with ten players, the long awaited final table. The tournament is played until only one player on the final table, becoming the champion. It is a pre scheduled tournament. The cancellation of application can only be performed until 15 minutes before the start.
Satellite is a type of tournament whose prize is the doorway to a larger tournament. Example: If the buy-in tournament costs $ 400 and buy-in to the satellite cost $ 40, with 10 participants in the satellite, 1st place wins a major poker tournament entry. If 20 participants gain entry 1st and 2nd places.
Admission is free, there is no entry fee, no buy-in, but you gain cash prizes, gifts or entries for poker tournaments.
