The number of casino poker tournaments is growing proportionally to online gambling facilities offering online poker rooms. It is so due to the nature of online poker and the way they like to play it. Gambling in poker rooms is one thing, while taking part in online poker tournaments is very different. The poker rooms are classified by level of players and limits they have for bets; and as to the tournaments, it is clear that some rules like that are not applicable at all.
First of all, they play poker at a tournament in order to win a prize, which may be some fixed amount of money, and dependant on each and every casino poker room, but no betting for money is done per se. Next, because of the said fact there is no wish to win a particular game, instead of that one has to stay in the game as long as possible. The later fact is important: one does not get any money, but he or she may have some good rating proven with the tournament, which may help to open some other doors for playing poker with people, who usually are not playing with each and everyone of any level in poker and for any size of bets.
