The Gift That Keeps On Giving (Best Poker Tournaments)
It’s that time of year where people give gifts and receive them. It’s my favorite time of year honestly, not just because of the gifts I get, but I am one who likes giving them as well. I get the most joy by seeing the smile on someone’s face when I give them the gift they always wanted.
I have to toot my own horn and say that I am probably the world’s best gift giver. My favorite gifts are gag gifts and this year is no different. I plan on giving my brother in law the ugliest Star Trek sweater I have ever seen. This will top last year’s bald man hair brush and toy doctors kit that I gave him.
Why a toy doctors kit?
He has a bad heart, literally. So, I thought it would be funny and hopefully help him make light of his current health situation. It got a good laugh from everyone and everyone knows it was all in good fun and it made the day a little bit better.
So, what the heck am I rambling on about gifts that I give on a poker site for?
Not only is it the time of year where people exchange gifts in the real world, it’s also the time where poker rooms love to shower their players with presents as well.
Now, I consider myself to be a cash game player first and foremost, but as of late, I have become an avid fan of tournaments. Why you ask? It’s not because I love to sit for 5 hours and stare at a computer screen and bust out on the bubble with AK to AQ. While this does fulfill my sadistic tendencies and who doesn’t love to play poker 5 hours and make nothing, I have been playing because of the great value right now.
Across almost every poker room, you will find some of the best tournament schedules you will ever find. I can’t believe the value in some of these. Between the huge guarantees and overlays, you will surely find one of the best poker tournament lineups in years.
The gifts get huge if you’re an American player, more specifically living in New Jersey. The recently launched poker rooms have huge guarantee tournaments with some of the biggest overlays I have ever seen in my life. If you have the means to do so, travel to Jersey for the day, play in some tournaments and drive out as fast as you can with the extra money you just won.
Granted Jersey Is not a place you generally like to visit, but for the money you can potentially win, it’s well worth it.
Since most of us can’t do this, you will still find plenty of amazing guaranteed prize pool tournaments across the web. It’s funny how when one poker room decides to offer a re-vamped schedule, others follow suit rather quickly. This has been the case over the last few weeks. Each day I see a new room offering a revamped schedule to compete with the others.
It’s like Black Friday when one store offers a hot toy at a low price; another store quickly advertises the same toy at a slightly lower price. Next thing you know, everyone is offering it for a low price and now you have carte blanche to get it wherever.
I leave you all with a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanza and all that other politically correct stuff.
