How It All Works
As you know, World Tavern Poker is not only America's #1 Poker League, but our World Tavern Poker OPEN events have grown so big, even the big casinos can barely handle us!
THANK YOU to all of our players, TD's and bar owners - because it is YOU that makes World Tavern Poker the best poker league in the country. (by far!)
Over the years, many players were unable to make our national events due to the date and/or location. So now we are giving you 2 choices, because
2 CHOICES IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN 1.
PLUS! We have created a new Championship format! The winners from each location (for both TOC and Nationals) will be flown to Las Vegas this November (just like the WSOP November 9) where you will play heads up for the ultimate titles and the ultimate prizes!
THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!
Below you will find the details for each of the hosting properties and dates.
We have assigned each state/region a default location where you will play in your Championship events (see map on right).
If you need to change dates or locations, no problem. Details on this are coming soon!
We will be updating information on this page on a daily basis with info on hotel, tickets, and more. Thank you for being patient as we take on the awesome challenge of 2 OPEN events!
Are you ready to help take World Tavern Poker to a whole new level?
