Poker TournamentsPoker as a gambling sport has gained rapid popularity. This has actually led to the rise of a number of Poker tournaments. The diversity of poker tournaments is matched by a variety of payout structures.
Some of the important types are Scheduled, Sit and Go, Rebuy and Freeroll and Guaranteed tournaments. A Scheduled tournament is one which begins on a predetermined time. Registration begins from one hour and up to a week prior to start of the tournaments. Sit and Go types have a fixed prize pool and begin as soon as a predetermined number of people have signed for it. They could have two to hundreds of players. In case of Rebuys, the players are allowed to buy back into their lost chips in a tournament generally in the first hour of the game.
Freerolls are those tourneys that have no fees or buy-ins and one can play them free of cost. The prize sometimes consists of cash and at times tickets to other poker events. The Guaranteed tournaments are quite a rage as the prize money is preset irrespective of the number of entrants. Such tournaments are distinguished by the name of the event ($30,000 Guaranteed) or their stakes are clearly mentioned in the prize pool information field.
