Internet Poker All-In Or Fold Bounty Tournaments Produce Excellent Poker Skills

Posted by admin | October 20, 2011 | Posted in: Online Poker Strategy | Comments (0)

Yes there is an online tournament which is all-in or fold and still a bounty tournament. It is definitely a unusual tournament but an intriguing one indeed. For people who don’t know what an all-in or fold tournament is a tournament where each round preflop you must go all-in or fold your hand, It is different from the all-in type tournament which requires you to go all in every time which requires little or no strategy at all, but merely luck. A bounty tournament is where you get a bonus for knocking out a player. In this kind of tournament the prize pool is less because half is awarded to the the bounties. This tournament has a lot of elements and new strategies.

One thing for sure this kind of tournament will cure you with the nasty habit of limping in to pots. It’s impossible to limp in during an all-in or fold tournament. It’s a good lesson to learn. Limping generally is a bad habit plus a bad poker play. Also, you better play with a very good hand. Players are either going all-in with top hands or folding bad ones. This helps you with the discipline of only playing top hands before the flop. A very good skill to have in your poker game.

You better play with a top starting hands in late position. If you consider the strategies of these kinds of tournaments, players are playing the very top hands in early and middle position. They realize a small hand in these positions will likely get beat by a good late hand. So do not forget that in late position with no one all-in in front of you, a hand slightly less than the top hand might be played here to steal blinds.

Stack size is extremely important in these tournaments. Remember that the starting stack size is the same for all at the beginning of the tournament. So really hand strength is the only variable initially. Later in the tournament the stack sizes are much different and are starting to turn into a weapon to be reckoned with. Two things are going on here. First, the larger stacks can play a bit more aggressively because if they gamble a little an lose to a smaller stack they are not out of the tournament. This play puts pressure on short stacks and if the play borderline hand they are gone.

Now for the cash and prizes. The good thing about this is it is possible to knock players out and get their bounty. If you play top hands it is possible to quickly get your entry fees back and then you are playing for free. Remember all players have a bounty and all but the winner loses theirs. So the bounties can get you profitable quickly. For the tournament prize money is usually 50 percent less due to the bounties, but enough there to play for. Follow these strategies we stated earlier and you will be getting plenty bounties and finish at the final table.

In this post we found a unique tournament which is very fun to play, with some very strict strategies, and it teaches the players some excellent discipline and tools for your poker game. We have played these tournaments at Carbon Poker and Pokerhost Poker both US poker sites. They seem to be hard to find, but are well worth it when you do.
