How are you able to offer a free to play poker tournament?

Our venues are player based, meaning that the games are free for you to play however please note they are NOT free to the venues to host the poker tournament. The venues pay a fee to the poker club and work extremely hard to have dinner and drink specials for you. Player attendance drives the venues and the Club's reputation. Hosting the game is a way for the venue to increase its revenue and players are encouraged to bring friends, order food and beverages. This is a win-win situation for the club and the venue.

How are the venues decided?

Each of our venues has sought this Club out to enhance the venues offerings to their patrons and to give the Club a top class venue in which to play. The venues pay a fee to the poker club.

How many chips does each player start the poker game with?

Free players start with a $10k stack of poker chips and VIP players start with an additional $5k.

Is there a way to earn more chips?

  • 1K – Purchase Single Draft or Bottled Beer
  • 1K – Purchase any appetizer
  • 2K – Sign in at lease 45 minutes before the first game.

Chip-ups can be used during the game but cannot be used "buy back" into a game.

What is the proper amount to tip the server or bartender?

Some average tipping guidelines.

  • $1 to $2 per beer

  • 15% to 20% of the tab, with a minimum of 50 cents per soft drink or coffee, $1 per alcoholic drink.

The above are general guidelines, if you wish to be a "Good Tipper" feel free to throw more their way. Many people are unaware of this but there's a special sub-minimum wage of $2.13 per hour for tipped employees so they depent on our support.
