Wouldn't it be nice to be the next Greg Raymer or Chris Moneymaker? Playing satellites and multi-table-tournaments are how these two made it to the World Series of Poker.

What exactly is a satellite poker tournament? It is simply a tournament that qualifies the winner for a seat in a major poker event. Usually the buy in for the satellite is a fraction of the buy in for the major tournament. Often the winner of the satellite has to go on to win another satellite to get the seat at the high profile poker tournament.

Another form of poker tournaments that has proven to be highly profitable are the multi table tournaments. These tournaments often involve hundreds if not thousands of players. A player can usually buy in for a relatively cheap amount, and play to win hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

In order to win one of the larger tournaments, you need to be on top of your game. It is best to come up with your own strategy to use during these tournaments. Some people like to come out aggressive and try to gain an early lead on the other players. Other players like to play it safe until some of the less experienced players get eliminated.

The key is to come up with a strategy that works for you. Remember that luck will only get you so far! Sign up for Party Poker today and begin playing satellites now.
