This is a discussion on Grand tour within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; how many of you have already played this game? who thinks what? as for me it is very exciting to play, but it is very
I quite enjoy playing the Grand Tours as it kinda suits me perfectly. Each sprint is a quick format, which is ideal as I normally fire a couple up during the tourney breaks and generally done before play starts again on my tables.
The bounty aspect makes it appealing as I also enjoy playing those and as I'm very well versed in playing turbos and hypers, it really is ideal.
I always play from the $1 sprint and try to run it up. Made it to the $60 final a few times but not managed to win yet.
As said above, it can be an all-in fest in the $1 level so a bit of luck is needed but that's no different than any micro pko tournament early on. You can generally wait for decent enough hands to get in for the bounties but, if you're the last to act, and there's been 3 allins before you then it's a call no matter what for me as the bounties make the call worth it. Especially because your stack in the next round is based on how many bounties you got previously, you'll have an early advantage if you take all 3 bounties and conversely be at a disadvantage if you fold to that 3 way all in and can only take 1 bounty
I love this game, just played a few rounds tonight started at the $2 stage but never made it further than the $25 stage but picked up some decent bounties along the way.
I have made the final $60 table a couple of times but never managed to win it.
If there weren’t luck involved, I would win every time.
