Upcoming Promotion: Baazi Poker Tour (7 CR GTD)

The third edition of the Baazi Poker Tour is ready to set ablaze both online and live poker felts in January 2020. Spread across 15 events, this hybrid of offline and live tournaments can be entered via our satellites running live. You can join these tourney for as LOW as ₹20. 

Whether you love online poker or live poker, we have it all! Come join us and make this poker extravaganza all the more exciting.

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!

We are still not over the action-packed event – the Baazi Poker Tour – because of its tremendous success and praise in the Indian poker circuit. The poker pros were there, the ones testing the waters of live poker were there too with many of them making it big at the live felts!

The masters were at play, beating the odds as they made it to the top. Here are the top five hands that made the BPT HighRoller event all the more interesting:

  1. The trial of Rohit Jinwal’s overpair (1:07:40)

Rohit Jinwal

After a series of calls and checks, it came down to a heads up between Jinwal’s pocket aces and Ankit Wadhawan’s pocket threes. The flop rolled out 6h – 2c – 2h which did not add anything for either of them. While Jinwal kept a confident front by betting and checking in anticipation of making his hand stronger, Wadhawan decided to call and check in his reply. However, as soon as the river rolled out an ace, Jinwal took the opportunity to bet making Wadhawan fold. Jinwal added a big chunk of 235,000 chips to his stack!

  1. Clash of the high pairs (1:16:10)

Ankit Wadhawan

Holding a pair of queens, Ankit Wadhawan raised with aggression. Little did he know that his opponent, Rohit Jinwal would answer with a 3-bet, holding a pair of kings.

Wadhawan decided to shove all-in only to see Jinwal going all-in. The board ran with Ac – Kc – 5s – 10h – 6d, announcing Jinwal a clear winner!

  1. The one with a close call (2:05:30)

Vivek Rughani

As Vivek Rughani raised holding a pair of eights, Jinwal called with Ad – Js. The nail-biting action begun with the flop (10h – Qc – 6c) as it saw Jinwal drawing to a straight, while Rughani was drawing to a flush. Proving true to its name, the turn added another twist in the game with a Jack of clubs which kept both the players on the edge of their seats. A four of clubs on the turn completed Rughani’s flush leaving Jinwal with a straight draw. Jinwal folded and Rughani won this hand with a flush.

  1. One hand, two eliminations (2:23:20)

Abhinav Iyer

This interesting hand saw all the action and nail-biting incidents pre-flop. Siddharth Karia decided to call with 8c – 6h. Wadhawan befittingly raised with a pair of jacks. The aggression went full swing from here with Abhinav Iyer going all-in with Kc – Qd. Sajjan Barnwal answered with the same from the other side, holding a pair of nines.

Wadhawan simply called to see the board roll out 2s – 3d – 2h – Js – 10d announcing him the winner of this hand, sending biggies, Abhinav Iyer and Sajjan Barnwal to the rails!

  1. Did Ankit Wadhawan take a huge risk? (4:05:15)

Ankit Wadhawan

While Jinwal open-raised with Ad – Jh, Wadhawan decided to call with 9c – 6c. The flop opened 8h- 7c – 8d which helped Wadhawan in drawing to a straight.

Jinwal’s bet worth 125,000 chips was replied with a raise from Wadhwan’s side. A four of hearts on the turn and Wadhawan’s suave play made Jinwal fold.

Now that’s something worth watching and learning from. Stay tuned for more exciting bits from the BPT 2019.
