Here is something I wrote for you guys. I get tons of quality information on these forums and I just want to give back. Enjoy it! Welcome to Project Poker! What inspired me to write this was the fact that I wanted to help people get into poker scene because I believe it is one of the most easiest/most profitable ways to earn money online. In this guide, I am going to teach you how you can form a powerful team of 5, and make profit like you've never seen before. There has been a recent addition to various poker rooms called Double-Up tourneys. They fall under the Sit-and-Go category and has a max of 10 players per game. It's pretty much a standard poker game, but the payout structure is different. The Top 5 (5 last remaining players) win double the buy-in. So say you entered a $50 buy in tournament table, if you stay in the top 5, you win $50, it's as simple as that! But, I'm going to make this even more amazing! Get 4 other individuals, your friends, family members, whoever you trust. Form a team of 5 and go into one table together. The odds will be in your favors. Imagine 5 of you guys who can communicate with each other competing against 5 other strangers, you guys pretty much have the advantage. So, say all of you guys place in the Top 5, thats great! If you joined a $50 buy-in table then you guys earned $250, just like that! Even if 4 people or 3 goes in the Top 5, that's still a profit. Rarely will you see your team only have 1 or 2 members place in the Top 5. You think it can't get any better, right? Well, I'm also going to provide you with tips on how to get into the Top 5 consistently. Enjoy. 1. The most important player trait you need when you play in this style of poker tournament is patience. Without patience you're going to waste your stack on marginal hands when you don't really need too. In a double up tournament the action is usually tight so you really only want to play your biggest starting hands. Even if you only win a couple nice sized pots on your good hands you should be in good shape to finish in the top five of the tournament. 2. You can generally buy a lot of pots when you're playing in this style of tournament because most players don't want to waste there chips unless they have something. It's a good strategy to take the pots when you can, but if you get re-raised then you should be weary because they most likely have a great hand. As long as you don't bet to much when you're bluffing players won't target you as quickly for stealing pots and they'll just assume you have a hand so make sure you don't over bet pots in order to steal a pot. 3. When you're down to six or seven players you should rarely play any hand unless you have a premium starting hand like high pocket pairs or high suited connectors. There isn't much reason to risk your stack in a big pot at the end unless you really think you have a good chance at winning the pot. Nothing is worse then finishing in sixth place when you should have had the top five locked up so make sure you don't get impatient and try ending the tournament quicker. Most of the time when players do this they end up losing the hand and are then the low stack on the table and in jeopardy of not finishing in the top five. 4.Even though you need to be careful about losing your stack you also need to make sure you're willing to call a big bet when you have a good hand. If you aren't willing to call an all-in when you have near the nuts then you shouldn't really play in these tournaments. You can't be scared because a lot of the time people will try to push you around in these tournaments. Please remember, PATIENCE IS KEY! Now go out there and make some money!
