The Poker Pub STL sends our prayers and condolences to the family and
friends that Jenenne has left behind.  

Congratulations to Mel Wagner for taking the

Poker Pub National Chapionship!

This is the first time a St Louis player has won a National Tourny!

At heads up, Mel and a player from Springfield decided to chop the winnings and each walked away with $2500 and memories of a great trip to Las Vegas!

Thanks to everyone that joined us in Las Vegaas! We had great weather and lots of adventures. Please, post any stories or photos from the trip! We will get pictures up shortly!


St. Louis Double-Up Challenge!

Date Change: Due to problems getting the info out about this promo we are pushing the dates ahead to:

  March 17th - May 9th - Win cash or seats in the 2009 Poker Pub Nationals! -

Here's your chance for you and a partner to win seats for the 2009 Poker Pub National Championships along with your hotel stay! Here's how it works -

A Double-Up Pair will consist of 2 players. All pairs must register with the Poker Pub, and can register at any time, even after the Double-UpChallenge has begun by sending an email to This is the only email that will accept registrations. The email must include the names of both players, the pair captain, the pair captain's phone number and the pair name. Pair names may not include curse words, vulgarity or slurs of any kind.

For your pair to receive points, either of the pair must place in the top 8 at any nightly tournament. Players do NOT have to play at the same locations, or even together. In fact, from a strategy perspective, it is best to play at different locations to avoid taking your partner out. Here are the requirements for points (remember this is only for placement in the top 8):

3-5 times = 25pts 6-8 times = 50pts
9 times = 100pts** this is the maximum weekly points allowed!!

Team Members will receive more points for placing in the top 3 at any nightly game!
1st place= 3pts x table multiplier 2nd place= 2pts x table multiplier
3rd place= 1pt x table multiplier

The Table Multiplier is determined by the number of tables the tournament started with.
The following is the table multiplier table (same as regular points multiplier table):

1-2 Tables = 1x 3-4 Tables = 2x 5-6 Tables = 3x
7+ Tables = 4x

A week is Monday - Sunday, your pair must place at least 3 times in a week to receive points

The Double-Up Pair with the most points after 8 weeks will automatically win!

10 teams=$100 10-20 teams =$150 20-25 teams=$200

25+ teams= Seats at the 2009 Poker Pub National Tournament + Hotel Stay!!

Points will be updated by the 15th of the following month.
The Double-Up Challenge will be held from March 17th through May 9th. You do NOT need to be a current Poker Pub player to be part of a Double Up Pair. For any questions or to register your pair, please email us at,

** Not subject to double points nights
** Players will still receive regular nightly points
** Double-Up points are not added to regular points
* * Placement at the final table for RQs and TOCs DO accumulate points for the Double-Up Challenge

** There will be no substitutions. A Double-Up Pair from the start will consist of the same players through the entire promotion.
