Poker Tournaments

Poker Tournaments

Life and Poker has common ground to share; it’s variety that adds a dash of spice to both. Poker, being present in so many forms makes each and every tournament a different one, both in terms of rules as well as in terms of excitement. While some of the poker games tournaments are based on a mix of several different games like bingo (e.g. H.O.R.S.E. events; a combination of Hold’em, Omaha, Razz, Stud and Stud Eight)

Others like the Better and Dealer’s Choice events allows a player to choose from a menu. However, most of the poker tournaments feature at least one form of stud (e.g. seven-card stud, seven card high-low stud) or community card poker (e.g. Omaha Hold ’em) offered with three options: fixed-limit, pot limit and no limit.

Though ardent Poker players arrange for informal tournaments every now and then, serious ones have always been the monopoly of large clubs, best casinoand online Poker rooms, being arranged on a daily basis. Aside from these, there are Poker cruises that offer tournaments at sea. And the last two years witnessed the World Series of Poker events taking place in Hotel Rio, Las Vegas.

Another casino game poker tournament that took place at the same location is the World Poker Tour championship, though the event never got the media exposure like the World Series that was shown on ESPN. But if we take publicity under consideration, it’s the European tournament (Poker Million) that takes the cake; the event has now reached its sixth year and is telecasted by Sky Sports on a regular basis. The legacy of the Late Night Poker television show thus continues.

However, we must also mention the perennial Poker tournaments besides the seasonal ones. The first name on the roster would belong to the Caribbean Poker Adventure, a series of open tournaments that occur throughout the Caribbean, followed by LA Poker Classic, the World Poker Challenge, the Legends of Poker, The United States Poker Championship and Ultimate Poker Challenge; these all happen to be regular tournaments where a $10,000 entry fee is considered quite normal.
