Server and Sales Tips
Maximizing sales during a poker tournament is a bit different than the general sports crowd. It is important that the server constantly “works” the tables, gets to know the players/customers and makes them feel very welcome each week. Venues that follow this philosophy are generally the most successful.
Announce “who needs a drink/food” every 10 minutes. Players often get consumed by the game.
Players will rarely leave the table to go to the bar.
When players order food, slide an empty chair/stool next to them. The tables are tight, so often they can’t fit their food in front of them.
Remember that players get knocked out during the game, so they may not be in the same seat when you return with their order.
As a league, we incentivize players/customers to arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the game. Please note that these customers
will often head to a different part of the restaurant to order food and/or a drink. As players get knocked out, they may head to different parts of the restaurant.
If you have questions during the game, please check with the Tournament Director.
