We are just a bunch of easy going men and women looking to add some more excitement to our poker playing. We feel the more players the more fun and of coarse more money to be won.
Orangeville Home Poker Tour was started by Steven Kerr in 2006 for Season 1. The tournaments are usually played in his basement which can fit 30 players. The average attendance so far for Season 1 and 2, has been around 15 players, Season 3 and 4 around 22 players, and so far in Season 5 around 25 players, and now Season 6 grew to 40 players and Season 7 is up to 50-55 players.
Also run satellite tournaments to Major Events like The World Series OF Poker, World Poker Tour Events, and Deepstacks Poker Tour Events. By running these Satellites, we have had OPT Members go on to win a WSOP Bracelet, A WSOPc Ring, Venetian Deepstack Extravaganza Titles, as well as Venetian Mega Stack Titles.
If you are someone that is easy going and can take a bad beat every now and then, then we are looking for you to join us in some fun poker action.
Don't let the waiting lists discourage you from signing up as, you will still have a good chance of getting a seat.
See you all at the felt tables,
The League's Season consists of 12 Tournaments and runs every other Friday.
Each poker tournament is a freeze out cash tournament where players accumulate points to play in the MAIN EVENT after the 12 tournaments have been completed.
WSOP Satellites are usually held in Bolton, Ontario, and follow the exact same structure of a WSOP $1500 Event but with 30 minute blinds instead of 60 minutes.
Deepstacks Poker Tour Satellites have now been scheduled as The Orangeville Poker Tour has been named an Official Satellite Partner.
Other Satellites like to Fallsview and Great Blue Heron, will follow as close to possible of the event you are winning a seat in, and are held in either Orangeville, or Bolton.
Cash Games are rake free and usually start after there is enough players eliminated from the tournaments and satellites.
