Scroll through the list of tournaments at any major poker site and you’ll be bombarded with options. Mysterious poker variations sporting buy-ins of all shapes and sizes are available at the click of a button. In this modern age finding a poker tournament to play is easy.
What’s more elusive is value. Many sites will run large guaranteed events with the potential for added money. However, these tourneys regularly fill up, meeting their guarantees with ease. So not only are they marathon affairs with thousands of players, but their potential for added value is completely erased.
Dedicated tournament players should not despair. A site known as Flop Turn River has beavered away to build up a cadre of exclusive tournaments just for its members. These elite competitions feature modest buy-ins so everyone can compete and, best of all, contain heaps of added money. There are tournaments running every couple of days at poker sites around the internet – including plenty at those that still accept U.S. custom. They all feature money added by the sites, which is placed into the prize pool no matter the field size. There are even some freeroll events where you can make a quick buck against your fellow players for absolutely no outlay.
There’s only one way to gain access to this stellar roster and that’s to join up. Head over to the Flop Turn River forums, fill in the registration form, and you’re ready to go. The site itself is far more than a tournament repository. There’s a lively and knowledgeable forum, poker room reviews, news, and strategy articles. Even without the exclusive money added tournaments, there’s plenty of ways FTR can help you become a more profitable player.
