These are, of course, suggestions rather than rules, but they give you a few options. Aside from the usual, usual poker money tournaments, there are some other tournaments that you can play for money in addition to Texas Hold’em.
The Ace onto Four or Better
One of the most popular tournaments played for money and which is quite a regular feature in the Gold Coast card rooms, and more recently at Tryhard, is the Ace to Four or Better. In this variation of the game all players are dealt four cards before the start of the game and the player with the highest card is the winner.
The winner with CAT or whatever his name is (it is usually easier to remember his name than the number after his name), has the option of declaring how much money he wants to invest in the game or just how much money he wants to give to his opponent.
One of the best features of this game is that it is a low stakes game, so there are normally even less willing opponents than in a Texas Hold’em game. The trick to winning at Ace to Four or Better, whether played for money or not, is to remember one thing, the cards that you are dealt are just as valuable to you as they are to everyone else.
You are not playing to win; you are playing to hold those four cards until you drive your opponent out of the game. You might think that your four cards are not that good and you are not really sure how to play them, you might even think that they are not that good at all. That is completely bogus and you would be better off learning more about the game before you play for money.
Does that mean you are going to lose all that money you have paid to buy in to the game? No, you are not. You will probably win quite a bit more than you will lose, but you will not win by a huge margin. If you win two-thirds of the time and lose the other one-third, you will end up with a net gain of around $10 for the two-day game.
That is what it is all about. has a bad beat or a lucky suck out, but that is the beauty of poker, regardless of whatever your game, you are going to win some money and lose some money.
