  • Texas Holdem Tournament Rules

    Players can only buy-into the tournament in the first few levels up to the end of the "late registration period." And receive the same starting stack. All of the tournament buy-ins are collected into a total prize pool which is then paid out according to a finishing positions.

    A single table tournament is called a "Sit-and-Go" (SnG) and begins when all the seats at a single table have been occupied. A Multi-Table Tournament (MTT) spreads tournament players over multiple tables and gradually narrows the field as players are eliminated. A Texas Holdem tournament is over when one player has acquired all of the tournament chips and is declared the winner.

    Usually around 10-20% of the field "makes the money" in a tournament with a "min-cash" being the smallest amount a player who cashes can win. It's typically a little more than the original buy-in while the prizes for the players at the final table make up the majority of the payouts. The winner of a Texas Holdem tournament takes home the largest share of the prize pool. In most tournaments this is hundreds to thousands of dollars; in the bigger buy-in events the winner's share can be well into the millions!

    Many online poker sites now also offer one- or two-week long online poker tournament series where they run multiple tournaments a day of all different varieties at at various buy-in levels. The series usually culminates in a Main Event (or multiple Main Events) with huge guaranteed prize pools.

    When players sit down for a cash game they pick a table with a set blind level (eg $1/$2 or $2/$5). Those blind levels don't change as play goes on. For a change in blind levels, players have to get up and move to a different table with different limits.

    In a Texas Holdem tournament, the blinds (required bets from two players before the start of each hand) increase at set intervals to both force the action and adjust for players accumulating chips by eliminating other players.

    Play in a Texas Holdem poker tournament proceeds hand-by-hand with the blinds going up in small increments in regular intervals. Anywhere from minutes to hours. Players can't then just sit around and wait for big hands as they will run out of chips as they pay higher and higher blinds. When you've run out of chips, you're out of the tournament. Where you are eliminated is where you finish in the tournament and determines if you win money and how much.

    In a standard Hold'em tournament, as mentioned, 10% to 20% of the field is paid out with most of the money reserved for the top spots. Because you can win so much more than your initial buy-in, big tournaments attract both pros and amateurs trying to make a big score. Each Texas Holdem tournament's rules vary slightly so it's always a good idea to brush up before the tournament starts.

    Sometimes I play live poker tournaments. It's always a great show)) However, I chose a different type of gambling for myself. I usually play online slots, check this out. There are many sites that I can trust and there are a huge number of these mini-games for every taste. At first it was just fun, but then it began to bring me regular profits.
