or $10. Both tournaments will cost you a one-dollar entry fee that goes
to the house, though there are some SitGo poker rooms that will only
charge a 50-cent entry fee on the $5. tournament. Since the online

generally loose with their game and they will play too many hands. Try

every hand. Don’t let the other poker players see the flop go on the
cheap side of things. If you are on the button, let the blinds fight it
out among themselves.
