The "cash" tournament for players that earned 1000 points in the month of February will be held on Sunday March 2nd at 12 noon at Skybox, extra chips for this tournament can only be had by presenting the "monthly" cards earned during the month of February, you must present them when you sign in. This will be a winner take all for $100 cash. Second chances will be available in this tournament.
The TV tournament that was postponed due to the loss of Dennis' Place has been scheduled, it will be held Sunday March 16th at 12 Noon at Skybox. To play in this tournament, you must have earned 1000 points in the month of December 2013, this tournament will use the format that was in place during that month so ALL starting chip stacks will be determined by the spreadsheet system, no other extra chip sources will be used in this tournament. Second chances will be available in this tournament.
The WSOP finals will be held Sunday March 30th at 12 noon at Skybox. As stated in the WSOP post, there was a backup plan in the event that there wasn't enough revenue to provide a trip package, and unfortunately this was the case, so this will be a cash tournament with a winner take all payout of $200. For more information on this tournament, see the WSOP post located on this page.

Skybox has a great menu with a variety of offerings, and they also have plenty of things to keep you occupied before, after, and between sessions including multiple TV's, a game room with pool tables and video games, and for you smokers they have a covered and heated smoking patio! This is a great location so lets all have a great time, and please remember that we need to support the bar/restaurant and tip the bartenders and servers so that they will want us to continue playing there for a long time! As we now have a sunday location, I will be scheduling the tournaments that were suspended so lets keep this going and watch it grow!
WSOP Circuit Ring Event Tournament
Posted on February 4, 2014
Here's your chance to get a WSOP Gold Ring! Missouri Poker Club is giving away at least 1 trip to a WSOP Circuit Ring Event! The package includes tournament buy-in, 2 nights hotel stay and travel/spending money. This is a 2 day event that typically has a prize pool of over $100,000 and pays out $20,000-$30,000 to the winner plus a WSOP Gold Ring! The package will be for the winners choice of locations between Tunica MS or Durant OK in January. There will be 5 monthly qualifiers for this tournament held at different locations to accomodate as many players as possible, with the top 20% advancing to the finals. The Final Tournament where the winner will be awarded the package will be a NO 2nd chance, NO extra chips tournament, everyone starts equal and when you're out, you're out! The qualifiers will be the standard "big" tournament structure with 2nd chances! The FIFTH and FINAL qualifier will be held at Cartoon's on Friday December 13th at 6:30 pm. You must have 1000 points in the month of November to play in this qualifier, and Bounty Points DO count towards the 1000 needed! Either play well enough to finish high in the standings a few times, or come out and play and support the club multiple times throughout the month, everyone has the ability to qualify for this one, so set your schedule and come out and get qualified! You can play a sanctioned WSOP event with a $100K+ prize pool within a few hours drive of Springfield, but you have to come out and play and show your support to punch your ticket! As this package is valued at approximately $800 and the entire process will take 4-6 months to complete, the club must continue to be profitable in order for the cost for the package to be set aside every month, and all players that qualify for the finals must remain an active player in good standing (actively playing with the club every month and no suspensions or bannings) to play in the finals. If the club is unable to hit the profitability levels required then the final tournament will be for the cash that has been set aside in the profitable months instead of the package being awarded. Either way, there will be a limited number of people playing for something very nice! And remember that the more times you qualify, the smaller the field you will play against gets!
QUALIFIED FOR THE FINALS:
Jeff "Taz" Fenton (1st qualifier winner)
Scott Dorrell (1st qualifier winner)
Shane Corbin (1st & 2nd qualifier winner)
Wendy Fennell (1st qualifier winner)
Ben Burnett (2nd & 3rd qualifier winner)
Cindy Smith (2nd & 3rd qualifier winner)
Larry Smith (2nd qualifier winner)
Bonnie Smith (1st & 3rd qualifier winner)
Eldon Hopp (3rd qualifier winner)
Al Turner (3rd qualifier winner)
James Brake (3rd qualifier winner)
Ron Brown (4th qualifier winner)
Lynn Luallin (4th qualifier winner)
Scott Holt (4th qualifier winner)
Don Scott (4th qualifier winner)
GOLDEN TICKETS ARE BACK!!!!!!!!!
Posted on October 20, 2013
Dust off those old Golden Tickets as they can now be used at all regular session games for 3500 chips before the game starts, or traded in for a NEW Golden Ticket so keep reading!
MPC is pleased to announce the NEW AND IMPROVED Golden Tickets! With a new Golden Ticket, you have 4 ways to use them! They can be used as they always have been for an "on the house" 2nd chance, or before the game starts for 3500 extra chips; OR the 2 new ways they can be used are as follows: if you do a 2nd chance WITHOUT using the Golden Ticket then you can trade in the unused Golden Ticket for an EXTRA 5000 in chips over and above whatever you receive for the 2nd chance, even if you receive the max chips on your second chance you will still receive the 5000 EXTRA chips! The final way is if the new Golden Ticket is presented at chip up it is worth an EXTRA 3500 chips, in essence it gives you a way to do an add-on, and ONLY the new Golden Ticket can get you an add-on at chip up! WOW! So how can you get a NEW Golden Ticket? There are 4 ways to get one:
1) There will be 3 NEW Golden Tickets awarded each day/night at select monthly locations, the winner of each session AND the biggest supporter of that location that day/night will all receive a NEW Golden Ticket. The locations for the month of September are Wacky Jack's on Tuesday nights, and Cartoons on Wednesday nights.
2) Randomly selected sessions will be posted on this club website, the club Facebook page, The club Facebook Groups page, and my personal Facebook page, so you need to watch those sources to find out where and when.
3) Pots at different locations will be "splashed" with a NEW Golden Ticket, these will not be posted in advance so you have to be actively playing at that location when it happens.
4) Trade UP, you can trade in 5 OLD Golden Tickets for 1 NEW Golden Ticket and all the perks that come with the NEW Golden Ticket.
NEW QUALIFICATION LEVELS FOR BIG TOURNAMENTS
Posted on September 9, 2013
The points required to qualify for a "cash", "prize", or "qualifier" tournament has been lowered to 1000 points, and Bounty points DO count! This has been done to make it extremely easy for everyone to qualify for "the big tournaments"! The starting stack for these tournaments will be 2000 chips, and additional chips will be earned based on a number of factors, with a MAX starting stack of 15,000 chips, and it is very easy for virtually anyone to "max out" based on their playing habits.
The factors that can impact your additional chips include where you play, when you play, "get chips" cards earned, wins, and how often you play. You do not have to play 4+ times a week or drain your bank account to have a nice total starting stack. In fact, whether you play once a week and receive a "get chips" card for 3100 chips, or you play twice a week and receive "get chips" cards for 2400 chips each then you would have a starting stack of at least 10,400 chips! No longer do you need to play 4+ times a week just to accumulate 3000+ points to qualify and split your budget up to receive a collection of "get chip" cards for 800 chips each and still not add much to your starting stack! Now you can do it playing once a week and not worry about it! My spreadsheet will track and calculate all the factors that will determine your total starting stack, and I am working to get it online with the website, just like the current points status, but until then you can ask me at any time for an update on your progress. I will input the session info, including finish position and points earned, and location info daily, but it is the players' responsibility to get their "get chips" cards BEFORE they leave if they want it to be included for the additional chips calculation. You can still get a card the next time you play, but it will NOT count for any sessions other than the regular day/night sessions, if the card is not issued to you before you leave then I have no information to put into that part of the spreadsheet, and once the day is entered and totaled it becomes "locked", so remember to get your card before you leave!
GET CHIPS CARDS MAY DOUBLE, TRIPLE, OR ACTUAL VALUE
Posted on September 9, 2013
Just a quick update on the Get Chips cards that we have all come to know and love. Most of you know this, but with the influx of new and returning players I feel it is important to put this here for all to read. Get Chips cards may be issued at face value, double value, or even triple value or max value, depending on where and when they are issued. Regardless of issue value, they will be recorded on the "monthly spreadsheet" for big tournaments at actual value, and only on the day earned, although they can still be issued at a later date for use in normal daily/nightly tournaments.
