Essex Poker League is back...............
Due to work commitments and venue availability, unfortunately, we have had to have a long break without a game. We now have a date for the next game on the 1st of December.
More dates to follow.........
We hope to see you all back at the tables.
- You must be over 18 years of age to play
- Rules used for the tournament are Roberts Rules of Poker Version 11, these are downloadable from the site and a printed paper copy will be available on tournament days for any disputes! Disputes during hands must be sorted out amongst players on that table.
- Excessive foul and abusive language or threatening behaviour towards any other player WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. You will be asked to leave the venue. We are all here to enjoy the game so please be respectful to other players regardless of whether you have just suffered a bad beat.
- Additional rules will be added accordingly.
Tournament Payout Structure
If several players bust out at the same time, the player who had the most chips at the start of the hand wins the higher value prize.
We allow players to cut 'side deals' to split payouts.
For example, the final two players might agree to split the first and second
prize payouts between the two of them. League points will also be split between players.
* The payout structure is subject to change at any time by the tournament directors.
