Event #2
T.K.P.L. Rules
TKPL Blind Structure

There has been some buzz about the possibility of sending the winner of this upcoming season of the Tom Kat Poker League to Las Vegas to play in the next World Series Of Poker Main Event.

For those who have not played with us before, this season we have made some major changes to the league which we hope will increase the turn out for the Texas Hold'em Tournaments during the season.

At all T.K.P.L. events, we have a $5 add on for $1,000 in chips and that money is rake free and added to the T.K.P.L. Main Event purse. 

At the Main Event this season, we are anticipating around 40 players participating and approximately $7,500 in the Main Event purse.

As with every previous Main Event, we pay out the final 10 spots with 10th place taking home $200 and first place taking home approx $2,000. 


What is being discussed is adding $5 to the add on which will increase the Main Event purse to approximately $14,000.

With around 40 players qualifing for the Main Event, everyone who has a seat will have the opportunity to win the FULL PAID ENTRY into the Main Event at the World Series of Poker along with travel expenses!!!

We will also pay out cash for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th place.

The final 15 will also be eligible to a portion of the winnings that the W.S.O.P. participant wins!!!

To qualify for a seat into this event, all you have to do is play in just 10 tournaments over the 18 tournament season. It is that easy. 

What do you think???
