Rules and Conditions for Lions Club Texas Holdem Poker Tournament

Cost of ticket is $50.00 for our regular monthly tournaments. The cost includes $40.00 to the prize pool and a $10.00 Bounty Chip. All of the money from the ticket sales is returned to the tournament players through the bounty chips or prize pool. The prize pool will be shared by the top 10% of players up to a maximum of 10 players. Prize money is awarded based on a percentage of the money pool and the players placing. Therefore the top winner will win more than the 10th place winner.

The game is broken down into “Rounds” which last thirty minutes each for the first three rounds and then twenty minutes thereafter. During the first three Rounds, a player who loses all of his/her chips may re-join the game by making a voluntary purchase of more chips ($20.00), or they may choose not to continue playing.

At the end of the third Round all players can purchase an add-on of five thousand in chips for $40.00 or two thousand chips for $20.00.  Once play resumes there will be no more re-buying into the tournament. If a player looses all of his or her chips they are eliminated from the tournament. 

The tournament ends when the last player owns all of the chips. That player of course wins the largest percentage of the money pool.

There is no alcohol served at the tournaments. Soft drinks, food and coffee are complimentary.


The players at the tournaments are generally local residents who enjoy testing their skill against others. Both woman and men play in the tournaments. Texas Holdem Poker has become the fastest growing recreational activity in Ontario.  Players must be at least 19 yrs of age.

All rules of Poker are followed, and monitored by a qualified Poker Director.

The "Bounty" chip  is used in an "all in call". The player wining  the "all in call" also wins the players bounty chip. Players redeem the chips for their $10.00 value. When a player re-buys for $20.00 he/she receives two thousand in chips and another bounty chip.
