The prize pots for some of these tournaments are over a million dollars and studying the poker faces of some of these expert players can quite easily be classed as an education in itself.

It would therefore be obvious to think that poker tournaments are only open to players who have a wealth of experience with lots of money which they can use to gamble with, this assumption will put many regular poker players off from getting involved in tournament play but as you will soon see, that would be a bad decision to make.
