Tournaments at Pokerstars
If you are looking for a good tournament poker site, be sure to check out Pokerstars. You can find a tournament starting just about any time during the day and you can find just about any kind of tournament that you want.
If you want to play in a small tournament you can check out the sit n go lobby. These tournaments usually just have 1-2 tables and they will finish in 1-2 hours. You can play at stakes that range all the way from 10 cents up to about $5,000.
There is also good multi-table tournaments starting around the clock. Since Pokerstars is the largest internet poker site, there are always thousands of players looking to get into a tournament. At peak hours there will be more than 200,000 players logged into the site.
These multi-table tournaments can have anywhere from a few entrants, all the way up to record-breaking tournaments. Just recently Pokerstars set a new world record for the largest poker tournament ever. This was a $10 buy-in with 35,000 entrants. The tournament was full several days ahead of time, making players wonder just how many entrants there really could have been.

There are also a few different tournament structures on this poker site. Pokerstars has an extensive system of satellite tournaments. In these tournaments players try to win a seat into a larger event rather than a cash prize. Chris Moneymaker made the Pokerstars satellite system famous when he turned a buy-in of just a few dollars in more than 2.5 million.
There are also turbo tournaments, rebuy tournaments, shootout tournaments, freerolls, deepstack tournaments and more, making this the best poker site for tournaments anywhere on the internet.
