Over 6 players ended up on the felts at TIPS during the second edition in 2019. Here is what poker pros Pranav Khandalkar and Vinayak Bajaj had to say about their experience with us.

1. Pranav Khandalkar

A regular poker player of the Indian circuit, Pranav seemed elated as he went down the memory lane. He said,
My trip to Rozvadov was wonderful. Playing in European field was a wonderful experience. King’s is an excellent host. However, I would also like to thank PokerBaazi for handling everything from visa to travel seamlessly. I extend my gratitude to the Baazi team who gave me a chance to play in an international field.

2.  Vinayak Bajaj

Last seen at the Baazi Poker Tour in Goa, this online poker regular managed to win tickets to not only The Indian Poker Series (TIPS) but also to the German Poker Championship (GPC) via our satellites. Sharing his experience with PokerBaazi, he said, 
I got to fly to the King’s Casino, Rozvadov twice this year, for TIPS and for GPC through PokerBaazi and the experience was surreal. These were my first international poker trips and I feel I could not have asked for more. Talking about our satellites, he added, “You might also bump into some big names randomly like I did into TonyG. Also the best part about King’s Casino is their tourneys have low buy-ins because of larger fields. I think everyone should give a shot at this. Trust me, you won’t regret it!

What are Satellites?

Major tournaments with massive guaranteed prize pools generally come with slightly higher buy-ins. but you don’t have a suitable bankroll. You can simply join a satellite tournament for cheaper buy-ins and compete to win a ticket to that major tournament.

It's every poker player's dream to take down the $1 million bracelet at the WSOP, but not everyone has $10,000 just lying around to buy-in to the event. If you've ever found yourself in a similar situation -missing out on a tournament with juicy cash prizes because your bankroll didn’t permit it - then you're not alone.

While we would all like to be playing high stakes and crushing the country's biggest tournaments, the opportunity to take down poker's biggest cash prizes are simply limited by the bankroll you have on you. 


But does it have to be that way?

Chris Moneymaker's legendary win at the 2003 WSOP, where he converted $86 into $2.5 million, is a self-explanatory story for how poker satellites (or sattys) can help players scale their earnings with a relatively limited bankroll.

If you haven't heard of his win and are reading this in disbelief, then let's quickly go over what a satellite is and how it helps you make big money with a relatively small bankroll.

What is a poker satellite?

Let's say you want to take part in a tournament offering a 20 LAC Guarantee, but the buy-in is ₹5,500 and you only have a bankroll of ₹20,000. Obviously, it's madness to spend more than a quarter of your entire bankroll on just one tournament so, even though you’d love to take part, you decide to sit this one out.


You then notice a tournament for ₹275, which, instead of offering cash as the prize, offers a seat to the 20 LAC tourney. To get a seat to the bigger tournament, all you have to do is win (haha)!

This qualifying tournament that offers you a chance to the bigger tournament at a discounted price, is called the satellite tournament or satty, for short.

Now, you might be asking yourself: "Why should I spend money for shot at a ticket when I can just play a smaller tournament with cash prizes?"

If you're skeptical about the chance of winning through sattys, then you're a smart poker player. The average player's chance of winning a satty are 1-in-12, but there are many ways you can improve those odds. At the end of the day, satellites offer immense returns on you investment, so making them a part of your game is definitely worth your while.

Looking for tips on how to make the most of sattys? Read on for some essential nuggets of wisdom:

Poker Satellites

Play multi-seat satellites

PokerBaazi regularly offers 2, 5 and 10 seat sattys to its various mega-events. When more seats are on offer, then your chances of winning a ticket are exponentially higher.

It's important to remember that in such sattys, everyone who places is an equal winner. That means that coming 10th in a 10-seat satty offers more value than if you placed 10th in a low-stakes tourney with a similar buy-in.

If you see such opportunities that are within your bankroll limit, then it might be in your interest to give it a shot.

Play sattys for tournaments you are already going to enter

This may seem counter-intuitive, but it's actually one of the principles of good bankroll management. If you know you have the bankroll to play the 20 LAC GTD, then it's worth trying to get into the same tournament at a cheaper price.

Since it’s already within your budget, you are basically risking a fraction of your bankroll to earn exponential rewards. As you are already planning to enter this tournament, you're also likely to be more focused when playing.

Play against softer fields

Sattys offer recreational players a chance to play in the big league with the pros. This means that satty fields, as a general rule of thumb, are softer than the fields for regular tournaments. Players tend to have very clear play-styles and weaknesses that are easy to exploit in the different stages of the game.

While most tournaments have either a hyper or turbo structure which force shove-or-fold play, smart players can take advantage of the many openings that appear to build a stack and coast through the bubble.

Play to survive

As mentioned earlier, all satellite winners are equal. If you have a comfortable chip stack and are likely to make it through the bubble with others busting before you, then even pocket Aces are a candidate for a fold (yes, you read that right). With blinds going up fast, aggressive play early can give you the lead over surprised opponents, and keep you in the game till the end. Once the late game kicks in, the idea is to outlast the field and make it through the bubble, so tighten up!
 

Satellites do come with a lot of variance, but when made proper use of, they are a powerful way to make it to the poker big league. Start adding them to your game and go for the massive win!

We've got a cure for your midweek blues! 8PM is always a special time on PokerBaazi. You get to enjoy tourneys like The Endeavour 15 LAC GTD and The Bout 10 LAC GTD, which are some of the biggest you can play in online poker.

We've decided to go one step further for our beloved Baazigars though, and have upped the ante once again with the G.O.A 20 LAC GTD that will now take place every Wednesday at 8PM.

But it's not just the number that should have you excited, there's a lot behind the name as well.

G.O.A. - Goa on Arrival

Not only does this tournament guarantee massive winnings up-top for a buy-in of just ₹5500, but the top 2 winners from each week will be flown to Goa to participate in an 8-Max Sit 'N' Go featuring a 4 LAC GTD! This guarantee is made by deducting ₹50K from the weekly winners of the tournament.

Pay-outs for the Sit 'N' Go will be ₹2.5 LAC for the winner and ₹1.5 LAC for a 2nd place finish.

The 8-Max Sit 'N' Go featuring all the winners will be played on the first Saturday of the subsequent month. The package for players will include return airfare, stay for a night, airport and casino transfers in addition to a seat at the Sit 'N' Go. 

That’s not all! Players who place in the Top 2 twice in the same month will receive double the starting stack when playing live, giving you added incentive to ship the tourney more than once!
