We are a poker league playing No-Limit Texas Hold'em.
The league season is generally one half year (Winter/Spring and Summer/Fall) with sessions every 2 weeks on Saturday nights.
Paid members of the West Akron Poker League collect points for their play. Points are earned by participating and placing in the tournaments and knocking out other players. Dues for the league are generally due before the third session of the season. The league's point leaders play for a progressive pot at a Final Table Championship held at the end of each league season. There is a discount to pay dues for the whole year.
Players who do not wish to become members of the WAPL are welcome to play in the poker sessions too. They do not earn points and are not eligible to play in the Final Table Championship at the end of the league season.
Our current structure is to play 2 multi-table tournaments (MTT) during each session, with one beginning at 6 PM and the other beginning approximately at 9 PM. Buy-ins are currently $30 for each tournament. Refreshments are not provided so please bring your own water or pop and snacks.
We have also played other types of NL Hold'em Tournaments:
Single Table Tournaments (STT) - elimination down to one winner PER TABLE
Deep Stack Tournament - (DST) - multi-table tourney with more starting chips & longer blind levels
Sometimes cash games are available during the first tournament of the evening as players are knocked out. The buy-in for a cash game is in the range of $10 - $40, and the games played are usually dealer's choice.
