What's the best recommended tourney for beginners in pokerstars site



Good question, you have a big selection of tournaments on Stars, and it all depends on your bankroll , even if you are a beginner.

I would start with tournaments with a buy-in up to $5 , and I would avoid freerolls, because players tend to play more stupid, so better to play with real money.

I would also avoid turbos in the beginning, you need to learn the basic first and look for MTTs with longer levels so you can play a lot of hands, only way to learn from your mistakes is to play.

If you want to start with beginner micro, there is a daily 1k GTD that only cost you $1.10 . The good thing about this tourney is you get 10 minute levels and you avoid unlimited rebuys that make players go crazy all-in.
You have 2 re-entries so you get another chance if you lose to a bad beat.

I would start playing a few of those and just learn the basics. Also you should study and read some poker books, or read some of the interesting articles here on Cardschat.

Good luck!

If you truly are a beginner, I think, its best to start with regular speed SnGs. As Balo say, you want to avoid turbos to get more time to play and also more stack depth and postflop play. But you also want to avoid those very long 5-8 hour time scheduled MTTs, because its simply to much at a time, and the chance of reaching the final table is so small, that when you finally get there, you have no idea, what to do. And its also very difficult to get that feeling of winning the entire thing, when you need to beat 500+ other players. So the SnGs with regular speed, either 9-mans or 18-45 mans with their new structure, are the perfect training ground. Or you can go in a completely different direction and start with cash games.

In my opinion sit and go tournaments. For several reasons.

1 - You can play it very cheap.
2 - In a 9 seats sg, the first 3 are in the itm, so you have less risk to lose your bankroll than in a MTT.
3 - Playing 9 table SGs, you will learn a lot how to play in a final table.
4 - You play almost all the game short stacked. You can't be a good player if you don't know how to play in this situation.
5 - You play all the game with the same players, what can increase your skill in reading opponents.
6 - You can play several games in a day, what is a excellent training. You can test different playing styles between one and the other until you find the one you are most comfortable with. Before you start a new game, think about what you did right or wrong in the previous one, and try to apply what you learned to the next one.
7 - Good luck! :)

The freerolls for sure. Also sit and gos to build up bankroll. Then ladder up in levels in MTTs.
