World Tavern Poker Tour World Players
Once a player finishes in the top three in either the regular season or the high stakes at the world tavern poker tournament, he is guaranteed a spot in the tournament’s top three. Every player starts at ten dollars and the top three finishers earn fifty dollars and up. There are also supplementary “cups” which can be played within the regular tournaments for free. These cups improve your chips and hand history and occasionally come with special prizes. There are two ways to win a cup, by playing for at least one hour or by playing for a set amount of time.
The World Tavern Poker Tour boasts some incredibly strong players who have won millions. Some of the current world players include Maxibar, Acearon, Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Cates and Ray Narayan.
