We are still saddened by having to post-pone our championship, but our 2021 “MEGA” Championship is our way of turning the “lemons” we have been given this year… into one Giant Pool of Cash!!

Here is the anticipated championship format for the 2021 Vegas Championship, that will be effectively combining both the 2020 and the 2021 National Championships into one “Mega” Championship in Las Vegas in the Summer of 2021.

Qualification for the 2020 National Championship (Day 1A)
Will end on May 3, 2020
Your FINAL chance of qualifying for Day 1A would be Sunday, May 3rd.

Qualification for the 2021 National Championship (Day 1C)
“Choice Seats” for 2020-21 Championships will begin May 10, 2020
This means your FIRST Chance of qualifying for Day 1C will be Sunday, May 10th

This means qualify for ANY upcoming BPO Championship will be Starting May 10th… the week AFTER our final 2020 Qualifier!


What’s The Prize?

We anticipate at least a $300,000 – $400,000 Total Prize Pool, with the possibility of much more if we are back to our regularly scheduled events.   The ultimate prize pool will depend on how many local games, online games, qualifiers, and players joining us in June 2021.

It will certainly will be more than any of our events in our 6 year history of creating the World’s Largest Bar Poker Championships!!



Exact and Confirmed Dates will not be set until we are able to get approvals.   This is based on too many factors to give anyone a date right now.  We fully expect this to be hosted in June 2021 and as things get solidified or if they have to be moved we will give everyone as much notice as possible.

Starting May 10, 2020
We will start qualifying players for “their choice” in championship all the way up to this 2021 Championship.


What about the East Coast Championship?
We think it is unlikely to expect that we will be hosting in Atlantic City in October, but we will certainly do our best to get smoothing the calendar before 2020 ends.  You are still welcome to “chose” the East Coast Destination on any seats won after May 10th.


If we do not have an East Coast Championship, we will most likely be creating an online championship in which players can “choose” to use additional seats.

    I have played 53 games out of 60 and have never received a token. I thought every 10 games we received a token.

      Hi Joan,
      Each game awards 1 Token for Every 10 Entries… to the top finishers. If we have 500 players, 50 tokens are awarded in order of finish 1st – 50th.
