Main poker tournaments
Online poker is first and foremost about tournaments: free or paid tournaments, tournaments against players from all around the world, but it is also a door towards more prestigious tournaments, like worldwide tournaments which require a qualification or the payment of quite an important buy-in.
A big poker tournament, whatever it is, is always organised in the following manner: one "Main Event" is played in several rounds during which participants play Texas Hold'em and which determines the great winner of the tournament; as well as many other "side" tournaments which can be played in different variations (often Ohama or Stud) and allow a great number of players to be victorious.How is a poker tournament organised?
