A tournament is a door to win a huge amount of money with a minimal entry fee or sometimes free. As poker is one of the real money games, it offers many options to make cash.

Freeze-Out Tournaments

You pay a fixed or predefined entry fee to register for the tournament and you are given some chips equal to every player in the game to start. This chip stack is also known as the starting stack. Once you lose all this starting stack you are out of the game and at no point, you can re-enter the game. Hence, this is called the Freeze-Out tournament.

Freeroll Tournaments

You enter with zero cash and with few freeroll chips(Practice chips) and make money out of it in the form of an instant bonus. You can even win entry tickets to mega-events, cash prizes, or any achievements through freeroll tournaments.

Guaranteed Tournaments(GTD)

These tournaments have a fixed guaranteed prize pool. There could be many runner-ups in the tourney but this is a way to make an assured amount if you fall in the money at the final table. Such tournaments are the best way to boost your bankroll with a minimum investment.
