2023 National TOC Champ

National TOC - THE MAIN EVENT!

Playing in the Main Event is the dream of every poker player. The chance to be on TV, to prove your poker skills, and to take home millions of dollars - who wouldn't want that opportunity?

 

Well, World Tavern Poker gives two players the chance to fulfill that dream every single year through the National Tournament of Champions.

 

Two levels are offered at each National TOC, and you can qualify for these events directly from your local bar!

 

NATIONAL TOC - SEMI FINALS

This is a shootout style format where the top 2 players from each table advance to the Finals.

 

NATIONAL TOC - FINALS

The National TOC Finals is a multi-table tournament where you will be competing against hundreds of players from around the country with the Top 8 players receiving BIG prizes!

How to Qualify

To qualify for the National TOC SEMIFINALS:

 

  -- Win one tournament on Mid Season TOC night

  -- Finish 2nd or 3rd in a Tavern TOC

 

To qualify for the National TOC FINALS:

 

  -- Mid Season TOC Champion (most combined pts)

  -- Win a Tavern TOC

  -- Win 15 games overall in a regular season

 

 

REMEMBER!  The more you finish in the Top 3 during regular season tournaments, the larger your chip stack will be at the Tavern TOC - that can give you a huge advantage over your competitors!
