Poker Lesson: Small Buy-Ins, Big Scores

Author: Team Full Tilt

With MiniFTOPS XVI in full swing and the Mini Series of Poker set to begin, Full Tilt Poker offers a variety of ways for you to turn a small tournament buy-in into a huge payday.

To help you succeed, we’ve gathered some of the best advice about playing tournament poker from our collection of more than 200 Pro Tips. From before you even sit down at the table, to the moment the cards are in the air, to the final river card being dealt, we’ve got you covered:

•Before you begin playing, keep in mind that bankroll management is vital to being a successful poker player; be sure to read 2000 World Series of Poker** Main Event Champion Chris Ferguson’s classic tip, Starting with Zero, and remember not to play a tournament that is above your bankroll
•Get warmed up for a big tournament by playing a Sit & Go; two-time bracelet winner Howard Lederer writes about using Sit & Gos to bolster your tournament skills in Sit & Gos Made Easy
•Once the cards are in the air, it’s time to put your strategy into effect; five-time WSOP** bracelet winner Allen Cunningham suggests that newer players keep it simple when it comes to Early Tournament Strategies
•As the money bubble approaches, the climate of every tournament changes dramatically; Chris Ferguson offers advice on how to handle this crucial stage of the tournament in How to Win at Tournament Poker, Part 2
•Once you’ve made it to the final table, the end goal is finally in sight; two-time bracelet winner John Phan discusses the importance of making tough laydowns and never giving up as part of Learning to Win at Final Tables
•If you’re one of the final two players remaining in the tournament, get ready for a whole new ballgame; learn about the significance of playing position and making solid reads in Team Full Tilt’s tip about Playing Heads Up
While reading these tips won’t win a tournament for you, they provide valuable insight that will prove useful at every turn and help you along your journey from zero to hero.

With that in mind, we have one last tip which, despite its title, we think you should read. Take the advice of the best player in the world, seven-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Ivey, and remember that who you are as a player comes from the inside, not the influences around us. Whatever you do, Don’t Read This Tip!
