Are you a pro poker player? Do you want to make some profits? Then, try your skills in online poker tournaments against pros like you. However, make sure to analyze the tournaments schedule and rules beforehand. These types of events have higher stakes, lots of pressure, and the rhythm of the game is most likely going to change from what you are used to. However, there’s nothing to worry about – if you’re a competitive person, you’ll most likely going to have a great time! Here are some of the tournaments that you can try.

Multi-table events


Multi-table tournaments have generally many players with a longer duration of play as well as a higher prize. The main concept of the game is to play against several opponents and change the playing tables as players get eliminated from the contest. This makes the contest very tough and demanding. These tournaments are loosely referred to as MTT’s.

Sit and Go events

Also referred to as S&G events. These tournaments are some of the most popular poker tournaments on the internet. The reason for their popularity is that they are very diverse and complex at the same time. A funny thing about them is that they are not planned, and there is no limit to the number of players that can take part in these types of events. The games can start at any point and include all the players that are online on a particular site. Otherwise said, anyone interested in the game can take part in the event. The ultimate prize for the contest depends on the number of players that participate in that particular game. Interesting, right?


Satellite events

The satellite events are also quite popular in the online poker playing circles. However, unlike other types of tournaments, the satellite events do not offer any cash prizes to the winning players. Instead, the players are given a ticket to enter a bigger poker contest.

Most of the time the satellite event does not pay for the full amount of the entrance ticket to the other event. However, it pays for almost 95% of the entrance fee. The player tops up the amount. It is something like paying $10 for a $300 entrance fee for a poker event. This is why the satellite events are so trendy among online poker players. With a bit of luck, you can easily become a winner too.

A word of caution

Most of the above-mentioned poker tournaments are very complex. Make sure you can handle the pressure and stress that goes on at the poker contests before buying your participation in the event. Otherwise, you’re in for a certain loss of money and time. Do not bet on games that you know little about. It is a good strategy to take part in such events occasionally so that you can put your skills to the test.

You can certainly find some poker tournaments where you can both enjoy your time and make some profits too. The only thing you have to pay attention to – find the one that can help you develop your skills and where you can have fun too. Enjoy!
