Poker Tournaments in India
What are online poker tournaments?
A poker tournament is a winner-takes-all multi-level contest, much like many sporting tournaments like World Cup tournaments. Poker tournaments can be played on a single table or on multiple tables. In poker tournaments, all players start with the same number of tournament chips, to ensure that the playing field is level. Thus, the chances of winning depend on your poker skills, and not on deeper pockets. Winning players progress to the next level and play other winners until one player wins the tournament! Thus, one major point that differentiates tournament games from cash games is that poker tournaments end when a single player wins all the chips.
