Steps tournaments can have any configuration (freeze out or rebury), but the difference is that the awards are not usually in cash, but the possibility of winning the top level of play. This model is frequently used tournaments to get tickets for important events, starting in the "Step" A, which has a very small buy-in and ending in F or G, which have a large buy-in and give access to the packages for a tournament.
The characteristic of the Steps is that you can scroll through them, but in the last step, the one in which they are given tickets for events, you are not lucky, all the effort would not be rewarded. However, this kind of tournament has many followers because prizes can reach really high (as an entry to the SOP or PET) with minimal investment. Perhaps this name is known by few players, but if we speak of "Rush Poker" are many people who come to them a good memory because some items in cash giddy and full of action. Zoom is the latest venture of Poker, a game with the same characteristics as the late Poker, where each hand the player sits at a different table.
Online Poker tournaments are currently everywhere - not just in casinos - instead, so even online in a virtual network. In tournaments where you can win prizes, it is usually the rule that a certain buy-in or deposit is required. However, there are also free online poker tournaments - so-called "freerolls" - making it possible to be free here and still finish with a win, online poker tournament.
