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.

For Servers

  • 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.

Early Sales

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.
