Poker Tournament Schedule

For online poker website-specific poker tournament info, the best place to go is usually within the software itself:

Full Tilt Poker has devised a detailed but easy-to-use method of viewing the complete tournament schedule within their own poker software. Basically, you get a big list of tournaments and you can narrow it down in many ways to get the exact tournament you want. Just in case you’d like all the stats, currently running and completed tournament info is also available. The software automatically brings you right to the tournament lobby where you get to see the prize money and  register for the tournament.

I have a neighbor whose husband is really into poker tournaments. I would really like to share this information and my own enthusiasm with him. However, we have had a falling out recently because of their unruly kids. I have never had “bad or unruly neighbors” before and this situation is really unpleasant and looks to be developing into a chronic mess. My neighbor’s kids are in high school although I now understand that people can have similar issues with even younger children. I have searched the web for helpful advice on unruly neighbors and have found some solutions. Among the sages giving advice people who warn not to be passive-aggressive or tell your neighbor what they’re doing wrong. Instead she suggests that you explain what you need from them. “Make it about you, not them.” she says. Well, it is about my not liking my neighbors teenage boys playing basketball on my driveway at 3 AM in the morning with a bunch of rowdy friends. I would think the parents would also be annoyed with the noise at that time of the night. I’m actually considering calling the cops, but who knows, that might just esculate the who situation. Or, I could just use a noise machine or wear headphones. I find poker tournments to have less stress than dealing with my neighbors. Any suggestions?

CakePoker.com provides a detailed section of their website devoted to tournament play, which features a basic info section and a constantly updated schedule section.The actual tournaments are accessed through the game software, which has less detailed information but makes it just as easy to access the exact tournament that interests you. Depending on just how picky you are about the details, you can most likely find a tournament starting any time you wish.

Whenever you put your money at risk, be sure to behave responsibly. Don’t bet when you’re drunk. Limit your losses and be strict about your limits. And never take out payday cash loans to gamble unless you understand the risks of the loan and the consequences of gambling losses.

CarbonPoker.com makes it as easy as possible with a tournament schedule and registration function bundled right into their game software. This means that as long as you have the software downloaded and installed (and updated, if you’ve been away for a while), you are two clicks away from joining the tournament that suits you! .

PokerStars.com has nearly the same type of system. No schedule information is available on the website itself, but all of that is easily found in the software. What is available on the website is lots of helpful information in  the Tournaments section and (as always) a treasure trove of general poker and poker-related news and information. Along with Full Tilt Poker (above), Poker Stars is the place you’ll want to go if you want to test your skills against the best and most well-known tournament players.

UltimateBet.com is probably the quickest and most flexible of these websites when it comes to tournament schedules. Just go to this page and an up-to-the-minute schedule is yours to behold. Granted, if you already have their game software downloaded and installed (and if no, why not?) then that info is just as easily accessed through the main window. But it’s still nice to see how easily you can get to the info you need if you don’t happen to have your game running (or happen to be on the PC at work, or on vacation, et cetera)…
