What we're about

York Region Poker League (YRPL)

Please join our Facebook page - York Region Poker League - for all the latest updates and announcements. We can not guaranty that you will receive the same announcements on here as Meetup does not have similar functionality.

This league is Newmarket based and is recreational in nature, designed to bring poker enthusiasts together to share in the entertainment of poker. Each event will be a standalone tournament. YRPL is operated alcohol free, with an emphasis toward charity fundraising. We invite you to join us and wish you Good Luck and Good Fun

Non League - YRPL Stand-Alone Game

Newmarket Inn

This is not a league event - it is a stand-alone tournament

Limited to the first 60 paid entries plus alternates, seats are reserved by RSVP until 6:55 pm, at that time we will start seating from the waiting list. Late registration is available for the first 6 levels of play.

Important: Due to having to downsize from our usual 120 players to just 60, past YRPL players (someone that played at least one game in our last full live season) will get priority. If you are a new player, you may be moved by admin to the waiting list if there are regular players needing a seat.
