Pit yourself against some of the best poker players in the UK over a 12-week league with money added – have you got Blue Blood in your poker veins?
Blue Blood Poker is a group of poker players who support each other, celebrate each other’s successes and help improve individual performances and raise the overall skill level of the group.
It boasts players from all walks of the poker community, from pros to recreational players, small stakes to high. They try to uphold the highest standards of conduct and treat each other and their opponents with the upmost respect. The group provides opportunities for its team members to be staked into live and online events, and a safe environment where players can have constructive discussions about hand analysis, strategy and overall gameplay.
There’s a long waiting list to join, but we’re giving you the chance to play in the Blue Blood Poker league, win staking into a live event and get your membership application fast tracked.
If you win the league then one of the top Blue Blood Pro’s will also be available for 3 months to mentor you as you play poker. This is a money can’t buy prize!
The league will run for 12 weeks on Monday nights at 7.30pm with late reg for the first eight levels (note late reg for turbo deepstacks will be 30 mins). The best eight from 12 results count towards your final points total.
The top two players at the end of the league will receive Blue Blood Poker membership and staking worth £220 into a 25/25 series (or equivalent event) playing on behalf of Team Blue Blood.
There will also be a bounty each week, which will be announced on the ‘Blue Blood Online’ Facebook page. Knock out the Team Blue Blood ‘Secret Bounty’ and you’ll get your buy-in back. Click here for the Facebook page or check www.bluebloodpoker.co
