Jedd takes it down. Championship Event a SuccessOct 15 2017
Experienced BPP player Jason Jedd snatched the champion cup's from Jessica Adams, after his continuously aggressive play forced her to call his all in with A5, with her double guttered 76. Justin Owen took 3rd and Elaine Pugh finished 4th.

Many stayed to watch the final table of 3 women and 5 men, that whittled from a field of 42. Ron Brania Jr acted as commentator, got lots of laughs, and helped entertain the crowd.

An Atlantic City seat in the East Coast Championship, a Seneca Poker event and a Kodi box for tv, tokens for online gaming, and a great 1st place trophy were part of the 'spoils' of this war on the felt.

More details to follow.



Venue UpdatesJun 16 2017
Due to some common feedback, we will be reverting back to the original schedules for Caputi's (7 & 10pm) and Brad Angelo's (6:30 & 9pm).

Make sure we have your updated emails on file! All Bar Poker Open tokens will be transmitted via email. If you don't have an account setup or aren't sure if we have your email, please write it on the sheets, give it to a TD, or email us!

Also as a point of clarification, if you are available to enter the second (consolation) tournament but there is a wait, you will be allowed to enter even if the wait goes beyond the two blind entry window.

New Prize Structure!May 20 2017
New Prize Structure!
We are excited to announce the details for the new prize structure for Buffalo Pub Poker. Going forward we will be partnering with Bar Poker Open to increase the number of prizes, and overall value to our players!

Our players will have a chance every night to earn entries into BPO online tournaments. The top three in our first tournament will earn a BPO token, which will have multiple uses (more details below). This first (main) tournament will be a deep stack tournament with starting stack of 5,000, yielding top three tokens and points consistent with our normal structure. The second (consolation) tournament will be played like our previous tournaments with 2,000 starting stacks and normal point structure.

In accommodation to those who don’t wish to stay out late, the second (consolation) tournament will begin 2 hours after the first (main). These tournaments will overlap, but there is clearly a greater incentive to do well in the main tournament. Players will be allowed to enter the consolation tournament within the first two blind levels (30 minutes).

We believe the offerings of BPO provide a 'flatter' prize structure for our league, allowing more of our players to earn their way to big money! As stated above, players earn tokens for placing in the top three of any of our main tournaments on a nightly basis. These tokens can be used in a Bar Poker Open online freeroll each weekend. The 1st place finisher in the BPO online tournament wins a trip to Vegas with hotel and airfare included! Additionally, the top 5% earn a seat ($200 value) into one of three BPO national championships (more details below)!

In addition to the BPO online freeroll tournaments, tokens can be used to enter our BPP season championships! We will be keeping the same points structure to qualify, but now players will have to exchange one token for entry. If a player who qualifies doesn't have a token for entry, the next eligible player will have the opportunity to enter (similar to when qualified players cannot attend). The prize for this tournament will be a paid seat into one of the BPO tournaments! Players will be responsible for any other expenses occurred for the tournament, including travel and hotel. Additionally, we will be reverting back to our quarterly format, increasing our championships from three to four each year (one tournament every three months)!

The seats that are earned are into one of three BPO guaranteed tournaments in Vegas, Atlantic City, or coming in 2018 Seneca Niagara Casino! Each tournament has different guaranteed amounts based on the growth of BPO, so make sure to keep an eye on their website: BarPokerOpen.com. Currently, Vegas has the highest guaranteed prize pool of $200,000!!

So as you can see, this new prize structure will allow more of our players a chance to earn seats in big money tournaments. Additionally, players will no longer have to wait around to play in tournaments to earn their seats. You can play each weekend, and each quarter, to earn seats into three tournaments throughout the year! We hope you are as excited as we are about the changes to our prize structure and nightly tournaments. As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. We look forward to having a lot of representation at the BPO tournaments, good luck everyone!

Summary:
Grand Prize – $200,000 BPO Championship
Nightly Tournaments – Main tournament (5,000 starting stack) for BPO tokens (top 3) and points, consolation tournament (2,000 starting stack) for points only
BPO Tokens – Use tokens for entry into online BPO tournaments every weekend. Top 5% earn seats into BPO Championships
BPO Championships – Choose one of three tournaments: Las Vegas in June ($200,000), Atlantic City in December ($100,000), and Seneca Niagara Casino in September ($50,000)
BPP Quarterly Championships – Every 3 months instead of 4 months
BPP Quarterly Qualifications – Point system remains the same (top 30, bar leaders, TD’s), additionally BPO tokens will be required for entry

Big Changes!May 6 2017
Big changes are coming to the Buffalo Pub Poker prize structure for our 20th Season! We look forward to providing additional opportunities to earn seats at casino tournaments with guaranteed CASH! Continue playing and earning points, as they will still count towards this season’s prize!
More details are on the way!

Regarding Conduct at Our Host Locations...Jul 8 2014
It should go without saying, but in light of a recent event, now is as good a time as any to remind you, our players, that this is supposed to be a fun league. It is, of course, free to play, and is played in bars and restaurants throughout Buffalo and Rochester. Our players, our bar owners and their other patrons, and our Tournament Directors should expect to have a fun game of free poker in our host establishments.
That said, there will not be any verbal intimidation allowed in our league. Moreover, physical violence, or even the threat of it, is cause for immediate suspension from league play. It will not be tolerated, not to mention what the law may have to say about it.
Our Tournament Directors are tasked with a tough job running a smooth poker game, and do not need the extra hassle of trying to sort out personal issues between players, much less having to be a disciplinarian ejecting people. In the same vein, our host-location owners extend to us the privilege of playing in their bars, hoping your appreciation of that fact is good for business. But no matter how good for business our league may be to a bar or restaurant, it is not worth having to deal with our players adversely affecting their other paying customers, or even worse, risking their liquor license.
Respect your fellow players, even if you don't respect plays that they make.

Bison BilliardsJul 7 2014
Bison Billiards will no longer be hosting tournaments with Buffalo Pub Poker this season. The current top 3 players at Bison will have a seat in our Quarterly Tournament this season.

Volunteer Tournament Director ChangeJan 27 2014
Buffalo Pub Poker will be going through some changes as we enter our 9th quarter, which will begin on Saturday, February 9th, 2014. In place of our current Tournament Director setup, where we have guys cart around equipment from bar to bar, we will be moving some of our venues to a Volunteer Tournament Director setup. The equipment will be left at each individual bar, and our volunteers will be responsible for setting up and running our tournaments. We truly appreciate everything that our employees have done for us thus far, however, this move will strengthen the stability of the league for years to come.

So, who will be a Volunteer TD? Well, maybe you! We are currently accepting applications for volunteer TDs to run tournaments at one of our host locations each week. Benefits for being a volunteer TD include a guaranteed spot in our Quarterly Final tournament, and being included in a weekly VISA gift card raffle among Volunteer TDs, as well as other benefits! So if you have a favorite bar in mind, please email us at dave@buffalopubpoker.com, or tell one of our current TDs who can relay the information to us. Most of our venues have a volunteer in place but we are still looking to fill a couple of spots. All volunteer TDs will be trained on the job, but we believe most will come from our current group of players, most of whom already know the system we employ and who will be very capable at running a tournament once a week.

Volunteer TDs will be asked to:
-run nightly tournaments at one bar per week for 13 weeks, if you cannot work for any reason you are expected to find a player to help you that night.
-picture message to us the nightly sign-in, top ten and raffle sheets
-be available for communication from us on an occasional basis
-set up and take down bar setups
-be sociable and deal with people
-help out at the Quarterly tournament when and if they are eliminated from the tournament

Volunteer TDs will still be able to play, and will have bounties on their heads when they do!
We look forward to the future of Buffalo Pub Poker with the knowledge that going to volunteers, like many such leagues across the country, will strengthen our league so that we will be able to flourish and thrive with an increasing player base and increased interest from bars. As always, whether for a Volunteer TD question, or any comments or questions in general, feel free to email us, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Quarterly Final SetMay 21 2013
As most of you know by now, the Quarterly Final is set for this Friday night, May 24th, at 7pm. We will have 60 players at 9 tables to start off! On a related note, after much consideration here at the offices of Pub Poker about how things shook out for the Top 3 players at bars where players were allowed to transfer points, we have decided to allow the Top 6 from each of the Tuesday and Wednesday night bars into the Quarterly. In the end, the move allows an additional two players into the tournament.
So saddle up and get ready for Friday night! As usual, I expect it will be a great time and a heck of a game! Good luck, we'll see you there!

Congrats 'Win & In' Winners!May 20 2013

The hand does not need to go to the river.

Make sure to notify your Tournament Director so they can record your points.

Happy Holidays!!

Quarterly Final Turnout and Open SpotsAug 30 2012
We are sure about at least 1 player who will not be able to play in their earned spot in tomorrow's Quarterly Event. We will be filling the spots of those who cannot come with the next in line by points, so if you are in spots 41-50 or so, it may be in your best interest to come to Forvm regardless, as you may be able to fill in a spot where someone couldn't make it. Moreover, there will be 'Sit and Go' tournamnets all night for a winner-take-all 50 points good for Q3, if you come and cannot make get into the Quarterly. Good Luck!

Finally, on Monday night, September 3rd, Thirsty Buffalo and The Forvm will be OFF for the holiday, while Cheer's WILL be playing at its normal time. Normal tournament activity will resume Tuesday September 4th. See you out!

New Quarter of Buffalo Pub Poker Begins Today!Aug 25 2012
- First off, from all of us here at Buffalo Pub Poker, we’d like to thank you for making our summer quarter a great success! Over 400 different people played in our tournaments over the last 13 weeks, and over 250 placed in the points. Without our supporting patrons, Buffalo Pub Poker would absolutely not exist, so thank you!

- Moving on, there are a few bars that will no longer be hosting events. They are Witter’s Sports Bar on Saturday afternoons, Tony Rome’s on Wednesday nights and Woody’s Pub on Monday nights. Buffalo Pub Poker would like to thank them for their interest our league, and wish them luck in their future endeavors.

- That being said, there are a bunch of new bars starting off this quarter, bringing our new total to 15 bars across Western New York! They are:

o Cobber’s in Elma, Saturday nights at 7 & 10 pm
o Cheer’s Bar and Grill in West Seneca, Monday nights at 7 & 10 pm
o Thirsty Buffalo on Elmwood, Monday nights at 7 & 10
o Mooney’s in Kenmore, Tuesday nights at 7 & 10
o Recckio’s Sports Bar in South Buffalo, Wednesday nights at 7 & 10
o Milkie’s on Elmwood, Thursday nights at 7 & 10
o Pocketeer Billiards in Cheektowaga, Friday nights at 7 & 10

- As you can see, we’ve got a great bunch of new bars coming into the mix to join our 8 returning bars! There are also some new time slots being filled, as we now have both Friday and Saturday night games. We’re really excited to start the new Quarter this Saturday at Cobber’s!

- There are some changes coming to the prize structure as well. This Quarter sees the Top 40 returning in it’s current form, but we are increasing the number of automatic bids from 2 to 3 for individual bar leaders. Thus, if you are in the Top 3 by points at any bar at which we play, you are automatically qualified to play in our End-of-Quarter Tournament.

- Additionally, we will be replacing our prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in Total Points for the quarter with some exciting monthly prizes! Now, our quarter will be divided up into three ‘months’, and a large prize will be raffled off between the Top 3 players at every bar! The prize for the weeks 1 - 5 is a $200 Visa Gift Card! The prizes for weeks 6-9 and weeks 10-13 will be similar. So, if you are in the Top 3 at 1 bar, you will have a 1 in 45 (3 contestants from each bar, 15 bars) shot of winning! If you are in the Top 3 at 5 bars, you have a 5 in 45, or 1 in 9 chance! The points for the monthly prizes reset for each new month.

- We’re excited about this change because it will allow a larger number of players to be able to enjoy the ability to win great prizes from Buffalo Pub Poker, while also giving a better chance to win those prizes to those who come out more often!

-To start the quarter off right, we will be starting in week 1 with a week-long raffle! Any player who plays in any of our tournaments this week will be entered to win a Buffalo Bills Mario Williams Jersey! Starts tonight at Cobber's and runs through Thursday night! Good luck!

Congrats to our 'Win and In' Tournament Winners!Aug 25 2012
Congratulations to our 'Win and In' tournament winners! Seth Millet, Juli Militello, Dan Cray and Raphael O'Riley will advance to play in our Quarterly Final next Friday at The Forvm in Amherst!

Win and In Tournament Tonight at 10!Aug 24 2012
The 'Win and In' tournament is tonight at T.C. Wheeler's at 10pm! If you have a blue star next to your name, you have a guaranteed spot in tonight's tourney.

**THERE WILL BE NO LATE ENTRIES!! GET THERE BY 9:45 AT THE LATEST!**

WE WILL BE ALLOWING THOSE WHO ARE IMMEDIATELY BEHIND THOSE 32 PLAYERS TO FILL IN THE OPEN SEATS OF PEOPLE WHO CAN'T MAKE IT, IN ORDER! We know for sure of 5 people who cannot make tonights tournament, and thus positions 73-77 will be able to play if they show up. There may end up being more people who cannot play tonight, so if you are in positions 78-83 or so, and you want to come out, you may be able to get in, though there are NO GUARANTEES! Seats are non-transferrable. See you at Wheelers, and good luck!

End of Quarter Two... and On To the Next!Aug 18 2012
As many of you know, today begins the final week of our second quarter here with Buffalo Pub Poker. For those of you in tight races, we will be updating the points list every morning so you can see where you stand. Good luck!

As a reminder, the 'Win and In' tournament is scheduled for this coming Friday, August 24th at 10:00 pm at T.C. Wheeler's. If you have a Blue Star next to your name, you are qualified to play in it, and 4 lucky players (3 winners and one raffle-winner) will be granted entrance into the Top 40 Tourney.

The Top 40 Tourney is scheduled for the following Friday night, August 31st at 7:00 at The Forvm in Amherst! Like last time, we request that people show up at 6:30 in order to get the game moving in a timely manner. We'll be giving out our quarterly awards at first break, an hour or so into the tournament. We will be running Sit-N-Go 8-person tables for anyone who either gets kicked from the main tournament or for anyone else who would like to play. 'Sit-N-Go's will be winner-take-all 50 points toward the new quarter. All are welcome, so come out to root on your friends or earn some free points toward the new season! It's going to be a blast!

As for the Quarter 3, there are a few new bars that will be hosting Buffalo Pub Poker! Confirmed NEW bars as of now are:

~ Cobber's Bar and Grill in Elma, Saturday nights at 7 and 10
~ Cheers Bar in West Seneca, Monday nights at 7 and 10
~ Thirsty Buffalo on Elmwood in Buffalo, Monday nights at 7 and 10
~ Mooney's Bar in Kenmore, Tuesday nights at 7 and 10
~ Milkie's on Elmwood in Buffalo, Thursday nights at 7 and 10

There are still some other changes coming to our weekly lineup, so stay tuned to the "Where To Play' page as Q3 gets closer to starting next Saturday!

***Win and In Tournament***Jul 27 2012
On Friday August 24th @ 10pm TC Wheeler's we will be hosting a 'Win and In' tournament. The final points for the quarter will be posted on Thursday August 23rd after TC Wheeler's and Flattery's tournaments are complete. ONLY the 32 players in the positions after the green stars will be invited to the 'Win and In' tournament. Example: If the 'Top 40' players all have stars the players in positions 41 - 72 will be eligible to play in the 'Win and In' tournament.
How it works: The 32 players will play until only 3 players remain. Those 3 players will all earn a seat into the Quarterly Tournament. In addition every player that plays in the 'Win and In' will fill out a raffle ticket at the beginning of the tournament, when the tournament is complete we will do the drawing. The winner of the drawing will also have a seat in the Quarterly Tournament. The player who wins the raffle MUST BE PRESENT to win.

Good Luck!!!

All points earned at the Aud this quarter will carry over to Dee's Firehouse as well. Let's show Dee some thanks this Tuesday for taking over on such short notice. See you out, poker players!

Knock Out week is back!! This week starting July 21st at Witter's, ending July 26th at Flattery's and TC Wheeler's, earn 5 points for every player that you knock out of any tournament. Essentially, every player has a 5 point bounty on their head. Each player will be given a chip that is worth 5 points, when you are eliminated from the tournament, hand your chip to the player who knocked you out. Any additional chips that you still have are handed to the Tournament Director when you're knocked out, and you will be rewarded 5 points per chip. At the end of the week the player who has accumulated the most Knock Out Points will win a pair of tickets to Darien Lake!!

Good luck and Drink Up!!

Update to How It Works Page!Mar 19 2012


We here at Buffalo Pub Poker have decided to make a few changes that you should be aware of to our poker system. We've been talking about it with various players over the last few weeks, so these tweaks probably will not be a surprise for many of you. However, you should know that:

- In addition to the already-awesome prizes we are currently planning on giving out, there will be an addition of three prizes to the Top 3 Total Point Mongers for the quarter. The three people who finish with the highest total points after the thirteenth week will receive $300, $200 and $100 Visa Gift Cards for first, second and third, respectively. Good luck!

- For any of you worried that playing in only one bar per week will prevent you from getting into the Top 40, we have made a slight alteration to our Top 40 Tournament entry guidelines. The Top 40 players as ranked by total points will still get into our final quarterly tournament; however, any player who has the highest point total from a specific bar, but who isn't already in the Top 40, will be added to that Top 40 tournament, bringing the final possible total slightly higher than 40.

So that's the NEWS folks! Thanks for playing with Buffalo Pub Poker, and remember to check back to the website for all your Buffalo Pub Poker news and updates! Have a great day!

Stafford Jersey Giveaway!!Mar 31 2012
