Last Chance
TD Tournaments

Some regions hold a TD Tournament exclusive to current or previous-season Tournament Directors for their hard work all season long. Check your regional page to see if your area is holding such an event.

TD Tournament
Host a Regional Event

If there are 5 or more World Tavern Poker bars in your area and you'd like to host a Regional event, we want to hear from you! You must be able to seat and serve at least 120 players comfortably.

 

The benefits: the potential for hundreds of hungry (and thirsty) poker players in your bar or restaurant! Plus, if you already host weekly World Tavern Poker games and run a successful Regional event, even more players will return for your weekly tournaments!

 

Interested? Send an email with your name, the name of your establishment, your location, and a few details about your place of business to:
