How to Enter a Tournament

Online Poker Tournament Entry

If you’ve been following our “How To” blog series, you’ve already learned how to play poker & how to register on our site (if you didn’t know these things already, of course). Many of our players only get to this point because they aren’t sure how to enter a tournament. In that case, this post is dedicated to you.
Let’s start with the basics. Log onto acePLAYpoker.com and select the “Play Poker” tab. If you are a registered player, it will prompt you to sign. If not, you will need to register in order to play poker on our website. Once you’ve registered and/or signed in, you will automatically enter the poker lobby.
Once you are in the in the lobby, you have several options depending on what you’re looking for. If you simply want to play in a generic Sit & Go tournament, select the “Sit & Go” tab and view your options. If you are looking to play a promotional tournament or daily tournament (such as Mystery Merch), select the “Scheduled” tab.
Online Poker Tournament
Within the “Scheduled” tab, you will see a long list of tournaments. That’s because we offer them all day & night. We like to mix it up a bit, so you will find everything from No Limit Hold’em style tournaments to Pot Limit Omaha and Pot Limit 5 Card Draw.
If you’re looking for a certain game type, use the “All Game Types” drop down menu to search only for certain game types, such as Omaha. You can also filter by the buy-in limit you want and the type of tournament you’re looking for (regular, qualifier, event satellites, etc). Here, we’ve showed you a list of tournaments offered with 2 filters: $50+ buy-in and Event Satellites.
Tournament Selections
Once you’ve found the tournament you want to enter, click on it. On the side, you will see 2 buttons: “Register” and “Tournament Details”. Tournament Details gives you information such as the player names, level up times, prizes, and rebuy. Please refer to the image below.
Tournament Details
Once you are comfortable with the tournament info, you’re ready to go. Click “Register” and confirm that you wish to play. Make sure your balance can cover the buy-in amount, and you’re ready to play!

How to Play Texas Hold’Em Poker

Maybe you’ve already signed up to play on our site, but you have some questions about the game. Maybe you haven’t even created an account because you’re looking for someone to explain how poker is played. Whatever your situation, read on to find out everything you need to know about the game of poker in order to get started playing. We’ll even give you a couple bonus tips.

The most common style of poker in the United States is Texas Hold’em. It is also the most common game type played on our site. So, we will explain Texas Hold’em, also referred to as Hold’em. You’ve created your account at acePLAYpoker.com. You’ve entered the lobby. Now you’ve found a table you would like to join (remember that 6 is the maximum number of players in any type of poker game). What happens next?

You’ve entered your table, paid in, & sat down to start a new game. The first thing that happens is the Blinds. Blinds are paid on a rotating basis, so for each new pot, a new player at the table has to take a turn paying them. There is a small blind & a large blind. The first player to start the new game will pay a required amount into the pot; this is called the small blind. The next player will pay a larger amount, also required, into the pot. This is the large blind. Usually the large blind is twice or three times that of the small blind.

How to Play Texas Hold'em Part 1
Small Blinds

Once the blinds are paid, the next person in the circle has the option to call or fold (all poker games are played in a clockwise motion). By calling, the player agrees to stay in the game by matching the amount the big blind because they feel that they have a good hand of cards or can bluff successfully. By folding at this stage, a player communicates that they do not believe they have a good hand or will be successful in the round. By folding at this stage of the game, they are not out any money, unless they paid into the blinds. This round is called the pre-flop round. In some instances, a player who has a great hand will even raise the bet, meaning the other players must either match his new bet or must fold.

Flop
Pre-Flop Round

After the first round of betting, the flop occurs. The flop is the group of community cards placed in the center of the table. In the first round of the flop, the dealer places 3 cards into the center face up.

How to Play Texas Hold'em Part 2
First Round After Flop

Each player can use these cards in combination with their own hand in order to create the best grouping they have for a successful round. Those who stayed in the game but cannot come up with any combinations will either fold soon after the flop or bluff their way through the rest of the round. After each round, the dealer adds a new card to the flop until there are 5 flop cards on the table. After the last card is flopped, the last round of the pot begins.

How to Play Texas Hold'em Part 3
Last Round/Completed Flop

By this point, there are usually only 2 or 3 people left in the round. A player has the option to call the bet, raise the bet, or go all-in. The other player(s) must match a raised bet or an all-in to stay in the game. After the last player takes his turn in this round, the cards are shown and the pot is awarded to the person with the best card combination.
