On Friday June 3rd, Gov. Tim Pawlenty signed a bill legalizing Texas Hold'em tournaments at bars, as well as several other high-profile bills passed by the Legislature.
The Hold'em bill was included in a package of modifications to state gambling law. The poker provision allows bars and other establishments to hold tournaments without running afoul of gambling regulators, as long as they don't profit directly from the play, and provided that bets don't result in direct financial loss or gain among players.
Counties and cities may adopt more stringent regulations than those identified by the State. Be sure to reference your local regulations before planning or promoting any social skill event.
A typical poker series (or poker league) powered by 5th Street Poker Parties consists of multiple events spread across a defined time frame in which participants can ultimately qualify for the end of the year Tournament of Champions. Prizes are awarded to the top 10-15% of finishers in each event with a grand prize being awarded to the Grand Champion of the end of the year Tournament of Champions. Poker Series points are awarded during each event to encourage continuous participation.
Your participants will be able to track their progress during the entire season through 5thStreetPokerParties.com. All tournament results, point standings, and notification of upcoming events are updated daily on a web page devoted exclusively to your poker series.
