      Whether you're a SNG grinder who only plays the occasional large-field tournament, or an MTT whiz who's 24-tabling every Sunday, everyone has a favourite.


      What's YOUR favourite tournament?

      Maybe you love the iPoker $200,000 gtd because you can always satellite in; maybe you love the PokerStars Sunday Storm for the small buy-in and big prizes; maybe there's a $5 rebuy on the Ongame network you once won.

      Whatever the case, tell us about it - what tournament is your favourite, and why?


      Win a one month status upgrade!

      Everyone who posts their favourite tournament in the next week will be entered into our raffle, and three members will win a one-month PokerStrategy.com status upgrade.

      You must make your post before 23:59 CET on Thursday, October 31 to be considered for our raffle.

      Tournament name: Saturday Splash
      Site/network: PokerStars
      Buy-in: $2.22
      Format: Rebuy/Add-on
      Guarantee: $100,000
      This is my favourite tournament because... it's a fun, large-field turbo; rebuys are great and with a $2.22 buy-in you can drop dozens of buy-ins like Daniel Negreanu on crack; oh, and one time I final tabled it; ask KTU :s_biggrin: - fond memories <3

      Buy-in: $11
      Format: Normal
      Guarantee: $300,000
      This is my favourite tournament because... it's a tournament with a huge field, a very small buy-in, and lots of bad players because of the incredible guarantee. Even though I've never been able to cash big in it (aside of a few small cashes), it's always a tournament I look forward to playing because it's fun :)

      Get posting guys :f_cool:

      It's a fun way to goof off. After a long day taking poker seriously it brings me joy to get into one of these luckbox fests and all-in my way to defeat.

      Buy-in: 5.5 eur + Rebuys
      Format: MTT normal
      Guarantee: 5000eur
      This is my favourite tournament because... because its not a big field tournament ( about 400 players), plus its pretty deepstacked, so its easy to use edge against weak players. By the way there are a lot of weak players

      This is my favourite tournament because... there is great value in these tourneys. Wait for premium hands and push with them. There are a ton of donkeys at these tourneys who push with utter trash.

      Format: MTT Turbo

      This is my favourite tournament because...
      It had a huge field with lots of bad players spewing chips and u can get a huge stack. You can also register really late and just addon and you get 30k chips on 3k blinds after addon. I really like playing fast and shortstacked tournament.

      it has a good format that I like, a very good prize in terms of the low buyin, a huge player pool and therefor a lot of fishy players in it. I never shipped it but that is one of my lifetime goals to ship it once. One time! :f_biggrin:

      It's easy to get a seat via the satellites and the player pool is quite weak. It's a good tourney to have a relax sunday, watching the NFL and knocking off donkeys!

      Buy-in: $1.10+R
      Format: Turbo (3x-Turbo)
      Guarantee: 60K
      This is my favourite tournament because... you can turn on auto-double rebuy and shove 100% of hands for an hour and a half (yeah, you know what I'm talking about!), you can reach FT with just double rebuy+addon on the break, and you can even single rebuy+addon and still make a ~15k profit in less than 6h. It can make you laugh and it can make you go bananas. Not recommended for the faint of heart, unless you really love bananas.

      This is my favourite tournament because... it is THE Sunday major. I've only played it a handful of times (when I've qualified) and it's just really awesome to compete vs. the top top players online. I've never managed to cash it yet so that's my big hope for my next entry!
