Playing poker tournaments is a lot of fun. From trying to build a large stack to triumphing on heads-up, everything is very good. But if there is something even better than winning a grand prize, it is to do so by paying only a fraction of the price that others paid to participate in the tournament. Whether online or at major live poker festivals, a percentage of field will earn their jobs through satellite tournaments. But how can we conquer our spot for these tournaments?

Good luck at the tables!

Some players prefer to play tight early in the tournament, hoping to play only the nuts and wait for "normal" play after all these "maniacs" are kicked out. Not sure if this is the best option. If you do nothing, then in the second hour of the game you will find yourself with a stack significantly below average, and in these conditions it will be difficult to get prizes against worthy opponents. So I advise you to play more loosely. However, playing on "hit or miss" is also not worth it. Your goal is not to get the maximum stack by collecting all the chips at the table. Your task is not to lose and increase your stack at least the average. So play loose-aggressive, but don't get into a confrontation that could cost you your stack. That is, you can limp or call small raises with small pockets or suited connectors, raise with good cards, but avoid stacking unless you have a decent lead over your opponent.

I highly recommend Dara O'Kearney's book on Satellite Strategy. Its not expensive or a long read and youll gain insight on how these should be played properly.
