High quality poker tournaments
All of our poker tournaments have a deep stack blind structure, to ensure that there is enough 'play'. This means that everybody starts with enough chips (and the blinds are slow enough) so that they are not automatically forced to go all-in or do nothing. Turbo formats take a lot of the skill and fun out of the game, so we will always avoid them.
I really enjoyed the Grand-final. The structure was excellent and you can see the hard work the Hi5 team put in to make it an enjoyable day. Great league, great staff and even better friends.
Join the community
Despite what some people think, poker is a very social game. Our poker tournaments are a fantastic place to meet people, and make new friends, because everybody has a common interest in the game.
£5,000 Prize Pool
Each Semi-final has a £5,000 prize pool that is awarded to the top 40 players. 1st place takes home £1,150 in cold hard cash, which you can spend on whatever you like. Fancy a holiday? Perhaps a new TV?
Qualify for the Grand-final
The top 40 players also win an entry ticket to the annual £50,000 Grand-final. There is no other way to enter, so you can rest assured that everyone there has earned their entry in exactly the same way.
Massive £50,000 prize pool
Each Grand-final has a massive £50,000 prize pool, that is awarded to the top 10 players. 1st place takes home £12,000 in cash along with being crowned the year's Hi5 poker league champion.
Qualifying to the Grand-final is an achievement in of itself, and everybody deserves a little celebration for getting there. We hold a champagne reception to start the day off right, and to help settle the nerves of everyone taking part.
Custom winner's trophy
The tournament winner also gets to take home the awesome Hi5 Poker League trophy. No expense is spared for this, and with a bespoke polished chrome design, it is sure to be something for the mantle piece.
Custom card protector
Every player that takes part also receives a keepsake of the day, in the form of a custom designed card guard. These have been specially sourced, and we haven't (yet!) come across any of higher quality.
The Grand-final has a camera crew and media team, whose job is to make sure that all of the day's action is caught on film.
£5,000 Sponsorship package
We also give away a separate £5,000 sponsorship package every year. This package pays for the player's entry, travel, and accommodation to some of the biggest poker tournaments in the UK.
How to win
The top 20 players from the Online Semi-finals, and the Live Grand-final, earn points in a separate sponsorship leaderboard. The player with the most points at the end of the year takes home the Pub2Pro sponsorship deal.
Satellite into multiple events
We like to think of the Pub2Pro package as the one of the highest value satellite packages in the entire poker industry. Where else can you satellite into your choice of multiple poker tournaments all at once?
Consistency is key
Winning one of our tournaments is rarely enough to earn the sponsorship. The player that can consistently come in the top 10 over the year's tournaments is much more likely to take home this awesome prize.
