Poker tournaments provide the opportunity to invest a relatively small amount of money in order to win a big payout. Tournaments have shown a great increase in popularity, with the premier tournament events occurring at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
While we can’t give you all of the secrets to winning a world championship poker tournament (both of us have visions of winning that some year), this chapter does offer some of the basics of tournaments and practical tips. To get really good at poker, and to have a shot at the World Championship, you need to get experience.
So plan to enter a number of smaller tournaments before you invest $10,000 to enter the World Championship. Oh, and if you do get there and win, don’t forget to credit us for giving you the initial insight! (Acknowledgments and cash sent to the authors will be graciously accepted.)
