The recently launched “Double or Nothing” tournaments on PokerBaazi.com have attracted a fair number of players and for good reason. Popularly known as a DoN (Double or Nothing), this unique tournament is a relatively easier way for players to double their money simply by finishing in the top half of the field. A good player will record at least an 80% win rate on a reasonable sample size.
How these DoNs work is simple. Once a player registers to the event and takes their seat, the game begins much like a tournament, with binds and antes increasing steadily, putting pressure on everyone’s stack. Once late registration ends and the number of entries is determined, the goal of the tournament is to finish in the top half of the field. Doing so gives you double your investment while failing to do so leaves you empty-handed.
The format is not too hard to adjust to, and these games are the easiest to multi-table. The strategy involved is very mechanical, and survival is key. A general and profitable approach to the game is to play super tight early on, steal more often in the middle stages, and adapt a push/fold strategy towards the end. ICM and bubble dynamics are extremely important in this format, as finishing at the bottom of the top half is no different from finishing in first place.
PokerBaazi.com has scheduled these Double or Nothing tournaments throughout the day, with buy-ins ranging from INR 550 to INR 5,500. These tournaments offer an additional late registration period of 5 minutes. Players start with 25 big blinds and the format of the event is a Hyper-Turbo one. DoNs are very popular amongst players looking for a quick double-up on their investment, as well as the regulars, who will dig deep and learn that the format of the game does require a certain strategy in order to maximize profits in the long run.
