Las Vegas Poker Competition
When it comes to poker competitions there are many to choose from depending on your personal preferences. If you are looking for a friendly game of poker you can venture into most casino’s and join in on a low cash ring game. Many casinos are offering limit and no limit poker with a variety of blinds. You may choose to play online or off depending on your schedule and preferences.
The most common for no limit is $1/$2 or $2/$5 which require $100 - $300 to start with depending on the casino. The most common limit games are $3/$6 or $4/$8 which normally only requires $50 - $150 to start with. There is a large variety of cash games you can play with many going as high as $100/$200 tables but require a much higher bankroll to be allowed to sit down and play.
For those who are looking for more of a tournament style competition you can play in daily sit n go’s, multi table tournaments, or heads-up. This can be done online or off with many tournaments landing you a ticket into a bigger tournament for cash and or title.
Big poker competitions include the World Series of Poker, World Poker Tour, World Cup of Poker, and the European Poker Tour. The buy ins for each of these tournaments vary and normally you have the chance to win you way in by playing qualifiers which are smaller tournaments that allow you to move up by winning them.
