There are so many different medium and high stakes poker tournaments taking place around the world that it is very possible to bank 6 figures each year on a consistent basis.
Top high stakes poker pros like Justin Bonomo and Fedor Holz have shown that you can make millions of dollars each year playing poker because of these lucrative poker tournaments.
However, thousands of amateur as well as professional poker players don’t pay much attention to medium and high stakes poker simply because they don’t have a bankroll that can afford the buy-in to these events.
They focus their attention on low stakes games and grind away month after month without ever having a big pay day.
Even if you don’t have a big bankroll, there are ways for a smart poker player to win a seat at medium and high stakes poker games. One way to do this is to take advantage of satellite events that usually feed into most of these major poker tournaments. The buy-ins for a number of these satellite events start out with just a few cents, making it easy for just about every poker player to take part in.
Some poker players are aware that they can take part in these satellite events but avoid them because they know that they have to cross a number of different levels in order to qualify for the prize package. This dissuades them from taking a crack at satellite events.
