£62,000 / YEAR
High quality events
We are the only poker league in the UK that runs fully professionally dealer-dealt tournaments. We think that makes a big difference, because it ensures that the cards are shuffled quickly, and that the hands are dealt accurately. This in turn allows everyone to focus on their own game and enjoy the event to the max.
I really enjoyed the semi 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.
All of our events 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.
£2,000 Prize Pool
Each Semi-final has a £2,000 prize pool that is awarded to the top 10 players. 1st place takes home £600 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 10 players also win an entry ticket to the annual £25,000 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.
Join the community
Despite what some people think, poker is a very social game. Our events are a fantastic place to meet people, and make new friends, because everybody has a common interest in the game.
Massive £25,000 prize pool
Each Grand-final has a massive £25,000 prize pool, that is awarded to the top 10 players. 1st place takes home £10,000 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 every Semi-final (and Grand-final) earns 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
Players can take part in several Semi-finals per season by winning tickets from multiple pubs. Only the highest points score counts, but this how you can give yourself multiple chances to get a good score each season.
