Tournaments at 32Red Poker
Poker tournaments provide a pool of players with an opportunity to compete against each other for prizes in pools of any size. A tournament begins with everyone having a starting stack of a specific number of chips, and typically ends when someone has amassed all the chips in play, the prizes being distributed according to how late players are eliminated. To ‘speed’ up the process the blinds increase over time. Freezeouts offer a single tournament ‘life’ and Rebuys allow players to continue after elimination by rebuying into the action.
Here’s an overview of the various tournaments you can enjoy at 32Red Poker:
Guaranteed tournaments have a guaranteed prize fund - as opposed to the number of buy-ins determining the total payouts in a ‘standard’ tournament - and, consequently, tend to be good value.
Freerolls are, not surprisingly, extremely popular due to the fact that they cost players nothing at all to participate in yet still offer prizes! Occasionally there will be an easily achievable qualifying condition such as completing a minimum number of raked hands, or even simply logging in to the poker room.
Sit & Go tournaments are a different proposition in that the field consists only of a single table’s worth of players. The advantage of the S&G is that those with limited time are able to experience the thrills and spills of tournament poker.
Satellites are another popular format because they provide everyone with an opportunity to qualify very cheaply indeed for events with bigger buy-ins - including major ‘live’ events. For example it is possible to win your way to a World Series of Poker package for less than €5!
Live Poker events, with big money festivals taking place in venues around the globe, can be accessible for pennies via 32Red Poker. Online poker is an excellent grounding for the bricks and mortar game, and the transition is easy, made all the more appealing by our promotions often offering up packages that include buy-ins, accommodation and even expenses! Practice your poker face, and try out for a Live event.
Special tournaments are based on a specific event or theme, such as Wild West Wednesday, where players have a bounty on their head. Joining the same weekly special helps players get used to both the dynamics of the tournament as well as the opposition.
Finding your way around the poker lobby is easy, as can be seen from the example below:
Good luck, and have fun!
