I think it is safe to say that anytime you go online you are going to be able to find a Poker Tournament. There has been an amazing upsurge in online poker tournaments and interest in poker in general. Some of the best are Titan Poker, Ultimate Best, Poker Stars just to name a very few.
Poker Stars is the largest online poker room in the world and does take US players, which is something that cannot be assumed. If you are in the US, make sure and check this fact first, because quite a number of online poker tournaments do allow players from the US. At some of these sites there are photos of the players representing their online site at live poker tournaments. I find looking at these interesting, everyone seems to be having a great time. Starting your poker career online can be a good way to get it rolling.
I like the sites that have tables that have a chat screen and also allow the players to upload photos of themselves. It is the next best thing to actually being there, but you can still be in your PJs. Many, many online poker tournaments offer poker freerolls. Some are given when you first sign up, some are set for certain times of the day if you qualify and some come when you use a certain coupon code. No matter what, you should look for and take advantage of them. Buy ins and fees of course also vary and there are numerous sites which list all these things along with the details of the online tournament site. It may take some homework to find the tournament best suited to you.
Bonuses are also abundant for online poker tournaments. I found one site that offered bonuses that tripled your first deposit and I found it after just minutes of searching. Be wise and make a game out of seeing how much poker you actually can play with very little of your own money.
