Welcome To the World of Poker Tournaments

Poker tournaments are here to stay. They’re big business. And if you’re good at them, you can win an awful lot of money on them…an awful lot! In July, a granddad from the North of England won €2million in a world poker contest. But what are they are all about, and how can YOU win €2million!? Read on for the brief beginner’s guide to poker tournaments.

Where Do I Start?

As with anything, you will need to start off from the bottom. Not every poker tournament has a winner’s prize of millions of dollars. There may be one at your local casino or pub. This is where you can learn the ropes, and see how these tournaments work.

I’ve Won My First Tournament… Now What?

Congratulations! The best advice is not to get ahead of yourself. As with any form of gambling, it should be a fun pastime, and it’s advisable to sit back and enjoy your winnings and stick to small tournaments (with small stakes) for now. This way, you’ll be able to hopefully build up your betting pool sensibly, and you’ll steadily learn more and more about how the game of poker works. Once you’ve won a few tournaments, you can start thinking about bigger tournaments, with bigger stakes. And who knows where you might end up? The sky’s the limit, just ask the Granddad from the North of England! But as with anything, the top can only be reached by small steps. If you try and jump to the top, you’ll most likely come crashing down again pretty quick. The top poker tournaments only normally consist of people who have several years at least of poker playing tournament experience. But as is evident, it can nevertheless be done.
