ABOUT US

MTTPOKER league was formed in May 2009 after running the highly successful Paddy Power Charity Open. The event which was held in the Normandy hotel in Renfrew was attended by 1176 players over the 4 heats with the winner Fiona 'Oany' Craig gaining entry to the 2010 Paddy Power Irish Open. Fiona then went on to cash in the event for € 4,500 The event raised £15,000 for The Erskine Hospital a charity that provides care for war veterins. The event was the largest live poker event held in the UK at that time.

Created by players for players. MTTPOKER will always have players best interest in mind to focus and specialise in small stakes, social poker. 

MTTPOKER was created out of giving a regular, everyday, novice poker player the chance to compete in the biggest poker tournament around. This enabled them to win a huge sum of money without having to bare the cost of flights, accommodation or buyin to the event. 

MTTPOKER strives to allow players of all levels this opportunity. 

MTTPOKER League

MTTP operate a pub poker league in which players play for points to gain entry into regional and national events. New players can register by filling in a registration form available here http://www.mttpoker.com/join/ or at any of our events. All venues are run by a TD (Tournament Director) who will be happy to assist you with registering for the league.

We are the only pub poker league in the UK who reinvest all proceeds back into the league with the sole aim of bringing people back to the pubs which help increase their trade on what would normally be a quiet night.

MTTPOKER charge our venues based on the number of players attending the nightly events. This allows players to play poker in their local pub for a small cost in using the equipment. In return we ask that players purchase a few drinks while playing poker. The money raised by MTTPOKER is then used to fund our Regional & National prizepools.

HOW IT WORKS

The league runs continuously throughout the year with three monthly qualifying periods. New venues can join at any point throughout the year or qualifying period.

Players play out nightly venues to acquire points over a three monthly period.  These points are entered onto the Master Leaderboard  At the end of the three monthly period players can qualify for the Regional Final based on the points they have scored. 

Qualifying for the Regional Finals enables players to then qualify for the National Finals.

The top performing player at a venue receives bonus chips at the Regional Finals. Bonus chips can only be awarded once per player. 

There are 4 Regional Finals each year, players compete amongst other players from other local venues to play for the coveted Regional Final Trophy.

Average Scores - Top six players qualify

All players average score is automatically calculated based on the points received divided by their total games played. The top six average points scorers who have played ten games or more over the three monthly qualification period receive entry to the Regional Final. Players can sort the master league table to view by average points.

Points Total - Remaining players qualify

All players points over the three monthly period are added together on the leaderboard with only the top 20 games counting towards their overall total. The remaining places for the Regional Final will be filled in leaderboard order based on these points totals. The number of entrants from the leaderboard will be variant depending on the number of venue champions and top averages that qualify.

Players can only qualify once, after players have qualified their name will be removed from subsequent lists allowing the next available player to qualify.
