We are a Texas Hold ‘Em tournament league that meets once a month to play a tournament style game. The season starts typically on the third Saturday of February and runs through January of the following year. Tournament play starts at 5:30 pm and is always on a Saturday. The Tournament of Champions (TOC) game is on the same day as the first day of the season and starts at noon. Entry fee for normal tournament play is $40 with $35 going to the pot and $5 to purchase your knock out chip. We also have a $40 buy back rule for those who get knocked out before first break. The host of the tournament plays for free. 10% of the pot goes to the Tournament of Champions winnings and trophy (typically we spend $20 to $25 on the trophy). The league takes the top 10 scores of each player to determine who plays in the TOC. We take the top ten player scores, tournament winners and previous year’s TOC champion into the season finale of the TOC tournament. A player must have played 4 tournaments from the current season in order to be eligible to play in the TOC. The league keeps track of points, winnings, rule changes, postings, etc. on a website at www.homepokertour.com and we are under the name of League of Average Players. We recommend (although not required) registering to the site, finding our page and making a request to join. If you do want to attend a meeting either RSVP on MeetUp or at the HomePokerTour website. This is a new MeetUp group, so more information, details and updates are to come.
