New format for club
Posted on August 22, 2016
We are now giving away satellite seats every session to the top three players for a chance to win a seat to the $200,000 Bar Poker Open tournament.
Starting in July we are going to put our old point system back into place. Those players that come out and support the club will be rewarded with a direct seat give away to the $200,000 Bar Poker Open tournament every month. These direct seat tournaments will be played at Southbound Bar and Grill usually the first Sunday of each month starting on August 7th.
To qualify to play in the direct seat give away, you just have to accumulate 1500 points during the previous month of play. The top three players from each direct seat tournament will be recorded and the seat will be awarded to the winner upon confirmation of travel and hotel reservation for the tournament. If the winner is unable to go to Vegas the next place finisher will be given the opportunity to receive the seat instead.
We will be able to give away approximately 12 or more seats for next years tournament and want to have all those seats filled up in Vegas.

BAR POKER OPEN EVENTS
Posted on July 21, 2016
Going to try to condense information here so it makes some sense for everyone. BPO is going to put on two events that you get to play for, the $100,000 tournament in Atlantic City and $200,000 tournament in Las Vegas. Dates have yet to be confirmed and will be announced later.
1. Come out and play any session we host and place in the top three. You will receive a token by email that can be used any Sunday to play for a direct seat to Atlantic City or Las Vegas tournaments.
2. Normally you just have to place in the top 15 any Sunday from now until October 30th and you will receive a seat to the tournament of your choice. If you win the Sunday tournament as Jeff Ruel did, you win a seat to the Las Vegas tournament, travel expense and hotel stay, exact amounts have not been published yet.
3. Besides the top 3 players receiving a token to play the online satellite, the top 20% of players each session receive points for the BPO league. These points can be found by looking at leagues on the BPO sight and then clicking on our league there.
4. The points on the BPO sight give our players a chance at the following: For every 5 sessions that we play, 1 spot opens up on the BPO points list. So every month we have at least 4 or 5 spots open up. The points leaders in those spots will actually have the opportunity to go to Atlantic City and play in the $100,000 tournament for buy in of $180.00. So even if you have not won a seat in the online satellite tournament, you can still go to Atlantic City and play if you place just in points high enough.
For every 10 sessions that we play one position will open on the BPO points list for the point leaders to play in the super satellite on November 5th. The top 5 players from the super satellite will receive a seat at the $100,000 event in Atlantic City, $400 for travel and a 5 day, 4 night stay at the Borgata Hotel.
For every 40 sessions that we play one position will be opened on the BPO points list and the point leaders will receive a a bonus in the form of of an add-on/rebuy chip incentive for the Super League tournament.
For those of you with ego's larger than life the question will come up, "what if I win multiple seats in the online satellite." Here is a break down for you to set a goal on:
1 seat win online and you have your choice to use in for Atlantic City or Las Vegas.
2 seat wins online and you get a seat to both tournaments.
3 seat wins and you get a full apparel package for your choice of either tournament (don't ask me that that is as I have no information on it)
4 seat wins and you will receive an apparel package for both tournaments.
10 seat wins and you will receive a full Las Vegas Travel package.
So the bottom line is this: You have a chance to play for a total of $300,000 if you just come out and play free poker with us. If you actually let your friends know and help to build our player base more seats will become available to us. As we grow and are able to add locations with more sessions, that will open up more spots for you to play for and earn your way out to a real tournament for real money.
Or you can keep going out to spend 20 or 40 to win maybe a 100 or so at other locations and miss the opportunity that we have to offer.
EVERY SESSION IS NOW FOR TOKENS TO $200,000 SATELLITE SEAT TO VEGAS
Posted on July 18, 2016
Lets see who actually reads this now Every session that we are currently playing in Springfield will be for tokens to the $200,000 satellite tournament for a seat in Las Vegas regardless of how many players we have show up. So no need to text or wonder if we will be giving away tokens. Every night is token night at our current locations.
Wednesday and Friday at Cartoon's: 6:30 and 9:00
Saturday at Cartoon's: 6:30 and 9:00
Tuesday at Southbound: 6:30 and 9:00
How to qualify for a seat in the direct seat tournament
Posted on July 7, 2016
Oh no Ben, I have to get 1500 points during the month to play for the direct seat? That means I have to come out to play 15 times so I can get enough points?
Well if you have to come out 15 times and get the minimum of 100 points each time for just showing up, the chances of actually winning a direct seat are probably slim
Points up by 50 for each position at the final table, so 9th is 150, 8th is 200 and so on to 2nd for 500 and 1st receives a 1000.
We have only had 3 nights of poker since we started this for the month and already have 3 people who have enough points for the direct seat tournament. One of them only played one night, another only played 3 sessions out of the 6 and if I remember right, our point leader only played 4 sessions out of the 6.
So get out there and play and make a final table a couple of times. You will have the points before you know it.
