To some people, poker is a thrilling past time. To others, it is a way of living. But no matter how you see the game, you'll never taste its full flavor until you try your hand at online poker tournaments. Online poker tournaments are the pathways that can lead you to your moments of glory in poker. Poker legends have traveled these paths. Skills are brought to greater heights through online poker tournaments. Allow us to show you why.

Online poker tournaments are structured events where players compete against each other to amass all the chips in play. An online poker tournament will go on until there is a winner. Unlike ring games where you can come and go anytime you please, online poker tournaments require that you stay from the start of the play until your chips run out or until a winner emerges. All players also start out with the same amount of chips. Online poker tournaments are where you can hone your skills; learn the importance of staying alive in the game, and where good decision-making reaps big rewards.

So how do online poker tournaments work? You first have to register and pay a particular fee, except if the online poker tournaments you’re joining are freerolls or giveaways. You get your chips, the play starts and if you run out of chips, then you’re out of the tournament. In online poker tournaments, the winner doesn’t take all. So if you’re one of the last remaining players, you still have reason to smile. In online poker tournaments, all players that remain in the final table will get a share of the loot.

Game Structures and Variations

There are many variations to choose from when it comes to taking part in online poker tournaments. All your favorite poker variants can be played in online poker tournaments. Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi – Lo with betting structures Limit, No Limit and Pot limit. The choice is yours. But first let’s take a closer look at the different game structures of online poker tournaments.

  • Single Table Tournaments (STT) - These are known to be the simplest form of online poker tournaments. Action takes place at just one table with 8 to 10 players taking part. Nobody takes the place of players who have run out of chips so players become fewer and fewer.

  • Multi Table Tournaments (MTT) - Thousands take part in these online poker tournaments everyday. Each player is assigned a specific table. Once players break out, surviving players are moved to empty seats, thus decreasing the number of tables. Eventually, a showdown between two players takes place with one player winning all the chips. As always, the prize pool in these online poker tournaments is divided among the top 5% or 10%.
  • Sit and Go - Among all online poker tournaments, Sit and Go is the most informal type. As soon as enough players sign up for this tourney, you get to start playing in the final table.
  • Scheduled - Most big online poker tournaments are scheduled. You have to sign up in advance and show up on time for these kinds of online poker tournaments.
  • Buy-in - Many online poker tournaments require each player to pay a certain amount to join a tournament. In online poker tournaments, buy-ins may vary. Poker rooms such as Golden Palace and Blue Square have buy-ins that range from $3, $6, $10 and $198 for satellites and bigger events.
  • Freeroll - This is highly recommended for beginners in online poker tournaments. You don’t have to make any cash-out but you get to win real money. Not all sites offer freerolls, but you can find them at Doyle’s Room, VC Poker and even Paddy Power.
  • Satellites - Special online poker tournaments where the prize is an entry to a big, prestigious event. Satellites are gateways to great tournaments such as the WSOP, WPT and many more that begin as online poker tournaments. Satellite prizes usually include the buy-in to the main event, plus travel expenses and even hotel reservations.
  • Freeze outs - In most online poker tournaments, once you run out of chips you’re out. This format is called freeze out.
  • Rebuy - Some online poker tournaments offer the rebuy option. When you run out of chips or your chips are getting low, you are allowed to buy more chips. Buy-in amount is usually the same as the rebuy amount, and in some cases, even less. Rebuy period is only allowed during the first few rounds of online poker tournaments. The add-on option takes place at the last round of rebuy, before freeze out starts.

Brick & Mortar Tourneys VS Online Poker Tournaments

So why are more and more poker players turning to online poker tournaments? While a lot of poker enthusiasts still thrive on the game the old-fashioned way, online poker tournaments are here to stay. Here’s why:

  • Online poker rooms such as Victor Chandler, Doyle's Room, Golden Palace, Blue Square and Paddy Power offer a wide variety of online poker tournaments.
  • Unlike B&M poker tournaments which are so few and far between, online poker tournaments offer 24/7 action.
  • Buy-ins to online poker tournaments are offered in different denominations
  • Freerolls and Giveaways are available, all the time for online tournaments.
  • You always get to choose between Single Table or Multi Table online poker tournaments.
  • Online poker tournaments include satellites which will qualify you in huge events such as the World Series of Poker.
  • The pace of online poker tournaments is twice as fast as B&M tourneys. In online poker tournaments you wouldn’t have to contend with as much dealer activity. Table combination is also instantaneous in online poker tournaments, whereas players have to get up and be seated once again when tables are combined in B&M tourneys.
  • If you feel like playing poker the whole day long, it would be more practical to take part in three different online poker tournaments than in one very long B&M tournament.
  • After playing in online poker tournaments, you can simply turn off your computer and do other stuff.

So if you’re daydreaming of the moment when you get your first ever championship ring and the loot to match, your face filling up the TV screen, your momma watching proudly as you beam in front of the ESPN camera, snap out of it, save it for bedtime and start playing in online poker tournaments now. Go. Trust us; you’re taking the same path that the poker greats took. And look at where they are now, all thanks to online poker tournaments.

"I just wanted to drop the programmers a line and tell them that their RNG adaptation is superb. I've played at several online poker rooms and DoylesRoom.com has the most realistic cardplay by far. I am very impressed, and once word gets around about the play here, you're definitely going to be one of the most popular poker sites on the Net."
