Is GPT Poker available in my country?

I represent a Venue, can we host Tournaments?

What is the structure? How many rounds are there?

The tournament structure remains the same all over the world. All rounds of the tournament are single games of six players whether the games are live in venues, online at GPT Poker Online or home games. The GPT Poker system allows players to play anywhere at any time, mixing live and online play should they wish, in order to progress in the tournament

1st Round > Bronze > Silver > Gold

At any stage a winning player has the option to ‘cash in’ and leave the global tournament using their code to enter an online tournament (Bronze code) or live tournaments (Silver & Gold codes), or continue in the global tournament. Players can hold multiple codes at the same time and choose when and where they use them.

Our online poker room (GPT Poker Online) hosts all rounds of the tournament and players can find Bronze, Silver and Gold games at all times, playing with other players from around the world. Your code is upgraded whenever you win a game, giving you the chance to play in higher value live tournaments or to qualify for the Global Tournament Package.



Where can I play GPT Poker?

Live in casinos, poker clubs, bars, hotels, resorts, cruise ships and anywhere that poker is played.

Online at GPT Poker Online. All rounds are available.

Home games from anywhere in the world can enter GPT Poker playing their regular starting stack and blinds.

You can play GPT Poker anywhere (where legal) and if organising your own game you will need  to purchase a Bronze code to give to the first round winner.

In fact you can organize every round of GPT Poker live, our system allows players with the same code to generate a ‘winners key’ to give to that game’s winner so that they can progress through the tournament.

Remember that you can switch live/ online at any round should you wish, the choice of when or where you play is yours.

Can we include our home game and how?

For the first time ever your home game can be part of a major poker tournament.

The home game organiser simply purchases a Bronze code at any GPT Poker website. Players cover the cost of the code as their entry fee. You can play your regular blinds and starting stack structures or play with our suggestions that are in the downloadable pdf (coming soon).

The winner of the game takes the Bronze code.

You can enter your home game as many times as you like all year round and play to qualify for your choice of tournament.

With the GPT Poker system you can even arrange to play other home game winners and play a Bronze game for example; our systems automatically progress players.

You can also arrange your own online 1st round table at the Online GPT Poker Room and invite your friends.

What Tournament choices do I have?

All players are taking part in a GLOBAL TOURNAMENT unless they choose to ‘cash in’ their code and enter a live or online tournament, the higher your code value the higher the tournament value.
