Poker tournaments are not just for the celebrities!
Playing poker online is one thing, but once you have caught the bug of playing poker in a real life environment, the next stage of your progression in this wonderful game would have to be tournament play.

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.
