The Indian Poker industry, in recent times, has seen an exponential growth in terms of the guaranteed prizes being offered online. With such heavy prizes, more and more players are bound are swarming like flies to enjoy these poker tournaments in all its glory. And why not?
Who doesn’t want to make some fortune over gaming. The big guns in online poker can truly offer you life changing prize money if you manage to kill it with your poker skills.
The next and the most important question is can I afford the buy-in? If you ask any of the great poker minds about poker, the one thing everyone would stress upon is Poker Bankroll Management. Your bankroll management should give you the answer to the above question.
If you haven’t made a big enough bankroll yet, it is advisable to not go for big buy-in tournaments. No, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a shot at it, you definitely can, but through more affordable ways. That’s where poker satellites come in.
The big guns in online poker usually feature poker satellites that players can participate in for fraction of the buy-ins. For those who are new to this concept, Satellite poker tournaments are step tournaments or qualifiers that allow you to win tickets or free seats to high stakes tournaments typically either for free or a fraction of the original buy-in.
For instance, getting a ticket worth 10000 for a main event such as the likes of the EndBoss for say, INR 20 via poker satellites is just insane and here’s what might be stopping you from playing them:
20 Bucks Too Small
Having had played at certain stakes, one might feel playing a Rs 20 buy-in is too small. If you ever get this feeling, just think of winning a ticket through one of the poker Satellites and saving you from the tournament variance or helping you with a re-entry in case you feel at the top of your poker game and just the cards not going right in the first go.
It’s a Waste of Time
It’s again a common misconception to think Satellite tournaments as a waste of time and rather opting for a direct shot at the mega events. Well, just ask yourself. Am I here to make it big in poker? If the answer is yes, putting in some extra volume should be the least of your concerns.
