Fantastic Texas Hold’em poker tournaments for

just £13 an evening

The format of our events

Typically the evenings consist of single tournament events that consist of 16 to 24 players.


We differ from some pub based poker evenings in running one tournament in the evening with slower blind progression, so that players feel less rushed to act and a deeper stack so that some poker can be played without the fear of early bust out.


We play Texas Hold’em no limit poker format, starting with 20,000 chips and a single Add On chip. The Add On, worth 20,000 chips, can be used at up until the 1,000/2,000 blind change (providing you are not in a hand). At the 1,000/2,000 blind change this chip will automatically be transferred into playing chips. Please note, using the Add On costs no more money and provides a safety net for a player who may get unlucky early in the event.


All our poker chips are value marked for ease of understanding.


Players win points that contribute towards a quarterly pub league and a combined league.

Unlike some leagues, all of our tournaments have a visible to all blind clock.


If we have a low attendance evening, the starting stack will be increased to 25,000 and the Add On value is increased accordingly.


League points are awarded in each evening depending on the placing of each player and the numbers attending. This is explained more fully here.
