There are great fortunes to be won if you feel you have the skill need to master playing in poker tournaments, and some of the highest paying poker tournaments are those that are on offer at the new breed of Bitcoin Poker sites.
What you are going to have to do however it make an effort to find one of the more popular Bitcoin accepting poker sites, for it is those poker sites, due to their huge player bases that are going to have much higher valued prizes attached and on offer on their respective poker tournaments.
There are of course lots of different poker tournament types, so if you are new to tournament play then I would advise you to sign up to one of the many sites that offer a range of freeroll poker tournaments.
Those tournaments come with no risks what so ever as you are not going to have to pay anything to enter them but there will be a range of cash and/or bonus prizes on offer on each of them, if you manage to get yourself to the final table and then manage to finish in one of the top positions on the tournament leaderboard of course!
The benefits of initially entering no risk freeroll poker tournaments is that you can master the unique way that they work and operate and whilst you are doing so you will not be putting any of your own hard earned cash at risk of course.
However, without a shadow of a doubt the poker tournaments that are going to give you the chance of winning a life changing jackpot are always going to be the paid to enter ones, and the actual entry fee is going to vary depending on where you choose of play and just which poker tournament you choose of enter too.
Keep in mind though, that the tournaments that are going to offer the highest valued cash prizes are always going to be popular with other players and as such you will often find you are faced with beating thousands of other players to battle your way to a cash prize paying position on the leaderboard and the final table!
Look out for Rebuy poker tournaments too, for when you enter one of those if you do lose all of your initial set of tournament chips when playing of your initial entry, you are going to be able to pay another buy-in and as such have your chips replenished, allowing you to carry on playing.
Also, some online poker sites will give you access to a range of satellite poker tournaments, those are low cost tournaments on which you will not win a cash prize instead you win a direct entry into a much higher paying poker tournament.
Those poker tournaments could be online ones, or you could win an all expenses paid entry in one of the major land based poker tournaments that could be in play anywhere in the world.
