online poker tournaments

Online poker tournaments are fun and entice with large cash prizes

Every tournament player dreams of big winnings. So-called multi-table tournaments attract thousands of players every day. Multi Table Tournaments have hundreds to thousands of participants and the principle is simple. If 1,000 players participate in a poker tournament and each player pays a buy in of $10, the prize pool will sum to $10,000 which will be distributed to the winners. How many of the top players in the tournament get paid, and how the funds are divided depends on the site.

There are many different tournaments, from buy-ins of just $0.50 to thousands of dollars for the high rollers. There is a tournament for every type of player and every bankroll. Although each online poker provider offers poker tournaments every day, the stakes and rules can vary greatly.

Rakeback is also a very important aspect for pure tournament players and you should choose a provider that will give you an acceptable percentage of rakeback without generating a lot of rake.

We’ve compared all the leading online poker providers and put together the most important information.

PartyPoker and BwinPoker

PartyPoker is clearly the best place for online poker tournament players. There are a lot of tournaments every day, from small buy-ins for a few dollars to big high roller events. Every few months, Party Poker also holds special multi-table tournament series like the popular PartyPoker POWERFEST, which guarantees millions of dollars in prize money.

In addition, PartyPoker has a very good rakeback program and should you open your account through YPD, you can receive a lot of extra rakeback through our special VIP deals for tournament players.

Attention: If you have an old existing player account at PartyPoker, please contact our support. In many cases, we can link your player account to us or help you to open a new player account, so that you can get extra rakeback and participate in our exclusive promotions.

GG Network

BestPoker,GGPoker and Natural8  are a part of the Asian GGPoker network. The player field is one of the weakest on the online poker market which of course makes it interesting for tournament players. The number of daily tournaments is not as high as at bigger networks like PartyPoker and iPoker, but for players who prefer to play tournaments with buy-ins below $100, there are plenty of options. Additionally, there are often tournaments with guaranteed prize pools.

In addition, the rakeback is also very good, especially combined with our YourPokerDream VIP deal.

600$ Bonus/YPD VIP Deal

Microgaming MPN Network (Betsson/Nordicbet/Betsafe Poker)

The Microgaming (MPN network) is also one of the leading poker networks in the world, but they don’t offer big high buy-in tournaments. At Microgaming you can find tournaments in the small buy-in range ($1-10) with a maximum of 200-300 players. This has the advantage of making the field is a bit weaker, because real poker sharks are more likely to be on other sites.

At the tournament offer at MPN you will not get the big win, but they are still very profitable. MPN will occasionally offer special tournaments with larger buy-ins.

A big plus of MPN is the great rakeback deal. YourPokerDream can upgrade you to the highest VIP status, giving you 30% daily rakeback. In addition, we can get you an extra rakeback bonus of 15-20%, totalling  45-50% rakeback.

MPN sites Betsson, Betsafe, Nordicbet are completely identical in their offerings, so no need to think too hard.

iPoker Netzwerk (Coral Poker, Titan Poker, Netbet, William Hill)

The iPoker network is the largest poker network in the world and you can find a variety of different tournaments here every day. iPoker offers tournaments ranging from small buy-ins of $1 up to $500 tournaments where you can win thousands of dollars in a day. They run qualification tournaments for big live events, and there are numerous online tournaments with guaranteed prize money.

As far as rakeback is concerned, we highly recommend our partner Coral Poker as this one is world-class when it comes to rakeback. As an alternative for players who can’t access Coral Poker, our partner Titan Poker also offer decent rakeback.

Winning Poker Network (WPN)

The Winning Poker (WPN) Network is one of the world’s leading poker networks accepting US players. They offer a solid tournament schedule and also many special promotion tournaments. WPN network has great offerings for all players whether you’re looking for Micro Limits or big action.

As far as rakeback is concerned, our partner PokerKing is the best skin in the WPN network. Black Chip Poker and Americas Cardroom are also great options on WPN, but players at BlackChipPoker or Americas Cardroom play with less rakeback relative to PokerKing
