Hey guys! I wanted to ask you about your experience of poker tournaments (on the PC) for under a dollar. As I'm currently a student, I can't afford buy-in tournaments that are more expensive than a few dollars (haven't played one yet) but I would like to try winning real money. Is it a waste of money to play such tournaments because there are often a lot of participants in such tournaments and the chance of winning is lower as a result?

Its not a waste of money, but if your goal is money it may be a waste of time as you will spend a lot of hours to likely min cash, if youre lucky.

If your goal is to get familiar with poker then its a decent cheap way to do it.

It is impossible to learn bluffing strategies at any level below the $5 buy in and its questionable if the majority of the pool will respect your bluffs at even the $5 level.

I would argue that larger field events these are not the most efficient way to develop as a poker player, as smaller sit and go's will introduce less variance, so you will be able to extrapolate results from smaller sample size, and learn to adjust your play.
Also, you wont end up spending 4 hours in a tournament just to burst on the bubble, which is always quite depressing when it happens.

I believe that there are options, it is always good, everyone plays what they want or can, not everyone has the possibility of playing for large amounts:)

Any tournaments $1 and under can be excellent place to start when you don’t have much cash. While you may not may get a ton of money, you will gain patience and knowledge. Build up your bankroll and experience then slowly play higher and higher buy-ins when you and your bankroll are ready.

it depends on ur objective ..small stakes can end up if you win em i won $200 off 1 freeroll 2 weeks ago ..small stakes lead to bigger stakes ..if you can win them.. it says the OP is on poker stars so it has plenty small stake games also he can do ..and ggpoker also .
i gotta move ..the virus got me blocked in ..was leaving in the summer and the world crashed ..now its waiting time

POKER STRAGEGY 101 - DON'T LOSE ANY MONEY.

The best way not to lose at online poker is to have:

1. database tracking software (Poker HUD)
2. play freerolls get you bank roll and try from there.....
3. Repeat 1 and 2 = you are successful at playing online poker.:rolleyes:

I really enjoy the small stakes sit and go's at the moment I play the $1 buy in and do well off them. I have increased my bankroll by 50% over the last few months due to the pandemic and the lockdown, and look forward to increasing my stakes to $3 sit and go's in the next few weeks, but you have to remember to stick to a simple rule of not buying in to too many games above 1% of your total bankroll, sure I will try the odd $5.50 game when there is a half price Sunday event on but generally I stick to the rule and will not increase my stakes until I feel comfortable doing so.

Good luck at the tables and remember-
Gamble Responsibly and when the Fun Stops, STOP!

I love this idea and stick to it religiously, the only difference is in small stakes and free-rolls I never use a HUD.
But I have never deposited my money in any site either, all my bankrolls come from free-rolls

Great idea. Play more poker, learn the game, maybe win some creating a bankroll.

If you win big with a buck, only play another dollar tournament.

It's not so good to study, and it's a fact that it's time consuming because of the large number of people, but it's good for fun.

ACR

Good afternoon everyone, once I read that it is important for you to play on different poker sites, the ACR, has $ 0.27 Mtts that pays for the 1st place over $ 80.00, it is very good to increase your bankroll and if you are starting out in poker it is very good to gain experience, 12min blins and 10,000 starting chips, with 200bb.
I went to play one of these Mtts and ended up in 1st place with 826 players and won $ 85.00.

No its not a waste of money. There are free rolls that have a prize pool of thousands of $ and you can only get into the money by playing well enough. To actually win requires skill, luck and experience. Those "under a dollar" games should be satellites to bigger games and many of them that are advertised are well worth the time invested. Learn Omaha as well and find a site that works for you. If you see me at the same table, say hi.

Qualify for our private freerolls so you can boost your bankroll. Meanwhile it is okay to start off with tournaments that are less than $1.
