Blind Structure

The blind structure of our tournaments is designed to give everyone who is playing sensibly the chance to play at least two and a half hours of poker in an evening.


We need to complete our tournaments in a reasonable time for the pub to close and for players to get a decent night’s sleep for the following day.


Our blind structures differ from most pub poker formats in the fact that they do not double at most intervals. We have adopted the structure used successfully in the World Series of Poker, where the increases are gentler. This gives players more time to act, without the pressure of seeing a high impact blind change at the next stage of the event.
