There are many world class online poker players who actually play in an online poker tournament. They have developed what it takes to literally compete on a professional level, playing online poker. There are numerous strategies involved which, when applied, will give you the edge in winning during an online poker tournament.

There are two very different playing styles. One is aggressive and the other is using a more conservative means of playing. The aggressive player is active in every hand and sees lots of flops. The more conservative player relies on avoiding confrontation and is more concerned about selective play, working with opening hands that allows a win.

In the beginning of an online poker tournament, the player decides immediately whether the play will be done aggressively or conservatively. Up to 10 players are at a poker table. Initially, most players will start out aggressively, because that seems to be the most natural way to start out an online poker tournament.

By playing aggressively, a player can accumulate, rather quickly, a large number of poker chips at the beginning of a game. Then during the middle of the game a more conservative approach is taken and then towards the end of a game, an aggressive style is once again adopted. Especially is this so when the players make it to the final table.

By using a continuation bet, where the tables are turned and a couple of hands are won, the player can use this aggressive play to their advantage. The continuation bet is made, after a flop in online poker tournaments, and a raise is initiated which allows the control of the game.

The other players will have to check to the raise and they have no idea if the controlling player has a power hand or simply nothing. The controlling player than lays out the final bet and the other players will need to decide whether to call, fold or raise. If the stakes are high, this definitely will need calculating the odds of holding the winning hand. After all, it is all about strategy.
