TAPs Monthly Poker Tournament 

Game Night

We conduct a monthly poker tournament the first Friday of the month starting at 7:30PM. To support the communal nature of the experience, feel free to invite other friends and bring yourself, a small side and your favorite drink.

Each month we typically play 2 games. The first game we allow buy-in, re-buys and buy-ups for the first 15 minutes. The second game we allow it for the first 60 minutes. Payout is determined at the time the buy-in period is over.

There is a $20 buy-in. This gets you $2,000 in chips. The chips value is as follows:

  • Blue/Grey = $25
  • Red = $50
  • Black = $100
  • Green = $500
  • Purple = $5,000

Re-buys are unlimited and only require a $1 minimum.

We have been doing this for over six years and created a few rules over that time to ensure we have a good time.

#1: If you can’t make the blind, throw in your chips. You are done.

#2: Call time on slow play, 1 minute limit.

#3: If there is a misdeal that the table doesn’t agree on, the pot must be chopped among all remaining players

#4: Have fun, this isn’t the World Series of Poker.
