Free Roll Texas Holdem Tournaments are great because they allow you to play poker absolutely free and actually win REAL money. Does this sound too good to be true? Then go to the Trident Poker online casino to see for yourself.
At Most Poker Rooms you will find daily free roll Texas Holdem tournaments which offer guaranteed prize pools of up to $2000.
Some free roll tournaments do require you to have played at least 50 raked hands before you're allowed to enter the tournament. Raked hands are games in which you've contributed to a pot that has been raked.
The online casino usually takes a very small percentage of the pot for itself; normally about 25c for a pot that is bigger than $5. Raked hands are only accumulated during non tournament games.
While some free roll tournaments require you to have played a certain amount of raked games MOST are completely free. You don't need to pay anything to enter and there is no set amount of rakes needed.
Playing in free roll texas holdem tournaments is so simple, even beginners can enter and play.
Tournament registration ends a few minutes before the start but you should always try to register early as every tournament has a predetermined total amount of players.
The tournament excitement begins from the first round. Every player is given $1000 to use in the tournament. And every player is ranked according to how much money they currently hold.
There are a number of rounds which last a few minutes, and players are eliminated once they've lost all their money.
After each round the remaining players are re-seated at fewer tables until the final round where there is only one table left.
The excitement grows as the field narrows, and towards the final stages the blind bets are very high, up to $5000. So it's important to win as much money as possible in the early stages of the tournament.
You may be leading the poker tournament at the beginning but as the bet stakes are raised after every round it is very easy for others to accumulate more money and catch up with you.
If you haven't played in a Texas Holdem Poker Tournament before I suggest you at least enter a Free Roll Texas Holdem Tournament. You stand a chance of wining more than a thousand dollars and it totally free to play. The sheer excitement of the tournament is reason enough to enter.

As an added advantage, the respect gained by becoming one of the top ranked players in the tournament will help you create a bigger impression at non tournament games.
