How It Works

The National Championship is held during the World Tavern Poker OPEN and the World League Poker Championships to bring you the poker experience of a lifetime!

 

Nationals is broken down into 3 levels of play: Quarterfinals, Semifinals, and Finals. The Finals is the championship event with the BIG prizes on the line.

 

You can qualify for each level directly from your local bar. The more you play, the better your chance of advancing directly to the Finals.

National Championship Quarterfinals

NOTE: Those qualified for the National Champ Quarterfinals for Season 1 - 2019 will still compete in a shootout event at the WLPC in Las Vegas this November.
