Tournament Strategy Archives

The game of poker is a game that is won by good decisions made at the right time.  There is no clear cut winning poker tournament formula.  But, there are poker tournament tips that can serve to guide any poker player in winning a tournament.  Playing a poker cash game is entirely different from playing in a tournament.  The ultimate goal in playing in a tournament is to win all the chips in play.  A more aggressive poker tournament formula is necessary to implement as part of poker tournament tips that could result in major winnings on the table.

I was playing at a home game last night and had a particularly up and down evening.  It was a single table deep stack tourney with limited rebuys.  Having been on holidays and playing some winning poker of late I was perhaps less concerned with the outcome than usual and just really enjoying the game.  However, being able to take a few steps back from the table highlighted a couple of interesting things.  We’ve all heard the maxim in poker that all you need is ‘a chip and a chair’.  If you haven’t, the story goes like this…
