Sit and Go Poker Tournaments

Date Published: January 28, 2013

Sit and Go tournaments are very popular among poker players. Since most online casinos around the world offer a variety of poker games, these tournaments attract a large amount of players who are looking for more poker action and some high paying prize amounts. Sit and Go tournaments are played at a single table and are often referred to as mini-poker tournaments. These events allow players to enjoy a lot of poker action without having to spend a lot of their own money to be involved in the tournament.

When it comes to determining the prize pool, the amount will be based on the buy in costs. Each sit and go tournament will list 2 amounts when players are looking at the buy in amount. The first amount is the actual cost to the player to be in the tournament and how much money is being added to the prize pool. The second number that is listed is the fee that the site will take for hosting the tournament. When sit and go tournaments are played at a single table, there are generally three payouts. The first place winner will receive 50% of the prize pool, the second place winner gets 30% and the third place winner will take home 20%.

When the tournament begins, players will receive a number of chips depending on the amount of their buy-in. Players should always check exactly how many chips their buy-in will get them. Since the goal is to be in the top three at the end of the tournament, it may be best to have additional chips to ensure a win when the tournament ends.

These tournaments often attract players who are new to the game or do not have a lot of experience. Since there is only one table involved, usually with 6 to 7 players, high rollers are not attracted to these events because the tournament is short in length and the payouts are lower than the other poker tournaments that are available. However, with low stakes, these tournaments provide an excellent opportunity for newer players to begin developing their style of play before they move on to larger tournaments. For players who are interested in tournament action and are new to online gambling, these events will make great choices.
