Hello, and welcome to the University of Sussex Poker Society!

Since 2009, we have offered students the chance to take part in our weekly No Limit Hold'Em tournaments and this year we hope to be bigger than ever. Our tournaments average up to 60 players weekly and in some weeks, there have been as many as 100 players partaking in our tournaments giving the top 9 a chance to win up to £100 in cash.

We offer weekly tournaments on Tuesdays (during term time) at 6pm held above Falmer Bar in the Falmer Common Room. Buy-ins range from £2-5 with £5 being our most common buy-in rate. Our tournaments differ each week from knockouts, heads-ups, buy-in + add-ons to unlimited buy-ins.

We also offer a league table for our paying members. 10% will be taken off each week's cash prize and accumulated to be awarded to typically top 9 players in the league at the end of each term. The membership for this costs £6 and it is valid for 1 year (but you don't necessarily need a membership to come and play!).

A big part of the year for Poker Soc is the UK Student Poker Championships (UKSPC). This is the only student-exclusive, inter-university poker festival in the country. Poker Soc will always put in a bid for funding for this event so that we can take down as many players as possible! 

Everyone at the Poker Society is very welcoming and friendly and we love meeting new people. That is why if you are reading this we would love to meet you whether you are a pro player or you are looking for a new hobby - everybody is welcome! This year we have come up with a new initiative to help new members learn to play so please don't feel nervous about showing up.
