Raleigh, NC, March 21, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- World Tavern Entertainment, a leader in American bar and tavern promotions, has announced that tickets are now on sale for its flagship event: The World Tavern Poker OPEN. This, the 18th OPEN event, will take place on June 1-4, 2014 in Atlantic City, New Jersey at Caesar’s Casino. Over 1,000 guests are expected to attend what is annually billed as ‘the Poker Party of the Summer.’
World Tavern Poker is America's largest Bar Poker League with over 350 hosting taverns across the country and more than 180,000 registered players. Similar to a dart or pool league, World Tavern Poker hosts free Texas Hold ‘em poker tournaments each week at bars, restaurants and taverns across the country. The top players receive points and rankings for the chance to move on to Tavern, Regional and National Championships in hopes of winning one of up to 40 seats into World Series of Poker Events every year.
For the first time in the league’s nine year history, the Tournament of Champions (TOC) National finals, traditionally held in Las Vegas, will be held in New Jersey. According to Mike Matsinger, Owner of World Tavern Poker, the decision to move the TOC should allow for many more players vying for the tournament’s grand prize: the coveted $10,000 World Series of Poker Main Event Seat.
“So many of our players play at bars in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and simply have a tough time making it to Vegas. Having the TOC Finals in Atlantic City should allow most of them to come, and really bring us our biggest event ever,” he said.
The World Tavern Poker OPEN also features the National Championship for Season 2 (August 2013 – February 2014), as well nine cash tournaments and over $100,000 in guaranteed prize pools. Tickets for the event are on sale now via www.WorldTavernPoker.com. For more information, contact Derek Levandowski at (919) 544-0700.
