How Does it Work?
Official AHL Poker No Limit Texas Hold'em Tournaments are a form of entertainment designed to fill your establishment with customers that will enjoy your products and services. We license to participating restaurants, bars, and any place where food and beverages are sold.

Founded in Dallas, Texas in 2006, AHL Poker set out to create a new era for amateur hold’em players and help participating establishments put an end to their slow nights. Player participation range from 30 to 500 players in a single tournament session. Thousands of new members sign up weekly.

AHL Poker can provide venues with training, poker table tops, playing cards, chips, tournament rules and everything needed to run even the biggest of poker tournaments. The top 16 players at each session earn Official AHL Poker Player/Ranking Points.

Is my place a good fit?
Your place is a good fit if you have: Physical space for 5 to 16 tables that can seat 8 players each. Booths are not ideal for tournament play and should not be considered available space. A slow day or evening is where you will see the greatest impact.

How does this help Customers?
Players can play for free and have fun while testing their poker skills in a live tournament, all in the comfort of their favorite neighborhood bars and restaurants. AHL will also be bringing an established member base to your establishment on a nightly basis. Make sure you have a wait staff that is up to the challenge to take all those drink and food orders prior to and during tournament play. Your slow night may be become your busy night sooner than you think!
    What's In It for My Business?
Increased sales on tournament nights! Players will spend 2 to 7 hours in your establishment. We ask all our players to support all of our Official AHL Poker Event Locations!
