Texas Holdem Tournament Strategy

Posted at April 11, 2006 07:02 PM in Tournament Strategy , by Greedy Gecko.

To win a poker tournament you have to have a strtegy and clearly define priorites. In a poker tournament your main strategy should be:

1. Surviving to actually get to the final table. That is, of course, very important.

2. Building up a large amount of chips. This will allow you to survive large blinds and tougher competition at latter tables. This must be accomplished without risking the entire tournament.

3. Keep your focus. Concentration is always important when playing in a tournament. You have to know when to attack and you have to avoid lapses of poor judgement.

4. Don't drink alcohol while playing because it can impair your judgement.

5. Play the player. One of the most common ways to win at poker is to get others to make mistakes. To do this you have to know the people you are playing against and how they like to play.

6. You must also have the ability to adapt to the changes in the game as the game progresses. Somethings to adapt to are:

The number of players at the table

The players style of play

The size of your chip stack in comparison to your opponents

Overall, make sure you can spot the sucker at the table, and be prepared to change up your game throughout the tournament.
