Poker Tournaments

Playing a Poker Tournament at your weekly home game can be both a fun and exciting way to have fun with your friends. Make sure you have the equipment first like the Poker Table, Poker Cards, and Poker Chips and then follow these instructions to host your poker tournament.

How To Play a Poker Tournament at Your Home Game

To Opt-in or to Opt-out, that is the question.

Often, members of my online poker school ask me about the best way to run a friendly home game single table tournament that is both practical and fun.

Well, I can only rave about the home game setup I play in every Wednesday night because of the opt-in or opt-out rule that they play with.

The tournament starts like any other tournament, for $10 each player gets 2,000 in chips. Chip denominations are 25 (white), 50 (red), 100 (black) and 500 (green). Blinds start at 25-50 and go up every half hour for the first two rounds and then every 20 minutes after that. Blind levels are 25-50, 50-100, 100-200, 150-300, 200-400, 300-600, 400-800, 500 -1000, 600-1200, 800-1600, and 1000-2000. Two card decks are used, one for the current dealer and the other for the small blind to shuffle for the next hand.

The opt-in and opt-out aspect of the game involves rebuys. This home game is played with unlimited rebuys. Any player can opt to rebuy back in and get 2,000 chips at any time if they are completely out of chips. The central idea is tht players can choice to opt-out if they feel the blinds are too high and that a rebuy is no longer practical. When the blinds get to 300-600 or 400-800, and the big stack at the table has nearly 10,000 in chips, it is usually wise for players to opt out because the chance of coming back at this point are slim. However, it is the players option when they choose to opt-out and this provides a very enjoyable home game tournament. There is no fear of going broke too early in the night and having to sit out the rest of the tournament. There is always plenty of action as players try to accumulate chips early and amass a big stack to bully those rebuying late in the game when the blinds are big.

Pay outs are usually $10 for third, $30 for 2nd, and the rest goes to the winner, an amount that often exceeds $200. Of course you could alter the amount you play for, change the $10 for another amount like $1 for a small game or $20 for a bigger game.

Oh, and it is always BYOB.

Sit and Go Holdem Poker Tournaments

Sit and Go Holdem poker tournaments which are also known as SitnGo, sng, Sit n Go, SNG, are a form of mini poker tournament which have become extremely popular in online poker rooms. The best online casinos offer sit and go tournaments in their online poker rooms for real money.

Sit and Go tournaments can range in size from 2 players to hundreds, with 180, 90, 45, 27, and 18 being popular multi-table sit n go size tournaments.

One table sit and go, which were the original size, usually pay 3 spots out of the 9 that play. 6 handed Sit and Go tournaments are also very popular, they pay 2 places. Many sit and go players play heads up sit and go's where winner takes all.

Sit and Go's start when the table is full and are normally much faster then normal tournaments. A single table sit and go will last less then an hour and a turbo sit and go where blinds increase much faster last between 15 minutes and 35 minutes.

Sit and go strategy is complex but mastering sit and go tournaments is something that can be taught at online poker schools where you can understand the approach you should take to finish in the money more often.

Free roll Tournament Strategy

When playing free Texas holdem tournaments, you will notice a lot of crazy play early on in the free roll tournament as many players try to get lucky on the first couple of hands by going all in. A good free roll tournament strategy is not to play like this unless you have a very good hand like pocket 10's, pocket jacks, pocket queens, ace-king and of course pocket kings and pocket aces. Otherwise, sit back and wait for your moment to strike when you can get your chips in the middle in a hand where you have your opponent dominated. Good luck, and remember, another free roll tournament is about to start.

Free roll Tournament

Free roll tournament definition is a tournament that has no entry fee. Many rake back affiliates offer free roll tournaments as an incentive to players for choosing them as their rake back provider.

The prize pool in a free roll tournament is put up by another party, typically the online poker room. Free roll tournaments run by rake back affiliates the affiliate themselves put up the prize pool.

Rake back Free roll Tournaments

Entry into free roll tournaments are sometimes open to anyone and sometimes are private to those players that have earned entry. Rake back free roll tournaments are normally reserved for members of that particular affiliate or the affiliate's network. Entry into these free roll tournaments usually require the player earn a set amount of rake back during a given period. This period can be any amount of time, but typically is during a given month. For example, a free roll tournament in November for all qualifying players of the rake back affiliate can earn entry into the free roll tournament by earning the required rake back in October.

Many traditional free roll tournaments offered by online poker rooms require frequent player points to enter. Frequent player points are earned by the poker player while playing in real money ring games and for entering real money tournaments. Therefore, rake back players are not only earning rake back and possibly qualifying for their rake back affiliate's free roll tournaments, but they are also earning frequent player points to play in the online poker room's free roll tournaments.

Free roll tournaments are a great way to win money playing poker without having to spend money. Though most free roll tournaments require the player to earn their entry by playing for real money in cash games or tournaments. The free roll tournaments offered through rake back affiliates can have prize pools in the tens of thousands and winners of the free rolls often win several thousand dollars.
