Have you ever had a game of poker around your kitchen table with a few drinks and a takeaway?
Imagine doing that at the Pub each week, with the FREE added chance of winning a share of £40,000 in prize money.
Welcome to the Betfred Pub Poker League.
A casino poker tournament finishes between 1am and 4am.
Far too late for those of us with jobs and families!
Why not play in a pub poker tournament instead, which finishes at around 11pm?
Today's poker world is guilty of focussing on the poker pro's who make millions by playing poker to a very high level.
Everybody seems to have forgotten about the essence of the game - friends sitting around a table having a bit of banter and a good time.
The low-stakes environment of the pub poker world means that the very high-skilled players (known as 'sharks') won't want to play, leaving everybody to have a great night out with a new bunch of friends.
Our ultimate prize is a £5,000 sponsorship package which pays for a player's entry, travel and accommodation to some of the UK's largest poker tournaments.
Many of us would love to play in the pro high stakes tournaments, where the buy-in is £500+ & the prizepool is over £100,000. Sadly, we cant afford it!
Our sponsorship package is one of the best routes for grassroutes players to 'satellite' into the professional poker scene.
