Real Poker’s Arizona Poker Tour is comprised of a series of related events conducted under the rules and regulations for amusement gambling at mind sports. This not only includes regularly scheduled individual tournament events, with a guaranteed minimum prize pool and projected maximum, but also a monthly and annual points race, and monthly and annual freeroll championship level events.

Any third party location with an arms length relationship to Real Poker LLC can be a venue stop on the Tour. Our primary targets are sports bars and grills near the Valley freeway system, but a community clubhouse, a private residence, a hotel ballroom, even public venues like community centers and libraries can be used. We prefer venues with amenities such as food and beverage service, video, music, internet… but technically, we could play outdoors at a public park or in the mall at the State capital... although either of those options would likely require a permit.
Our short term goals are to finish crowdfunding our first mobile setup of six custom table tops and 5,000 tournament chips. We will expand from our base of operations at Toso’s on Tuesdays to other venues, and as our membership grows, we hope to be conducting nightly events at multiple venues around the Valley. A true poker tour.
In the future, we would like to grow with additional mobile setups, and affiliate or chapter clubs, including outside the Valley Metro area. But first we need to expand beyond North Phoenix.
Eventually, we foresee the need for an umbrella 501c3 charitable organization (educational) like the United States Chess Federation to organize and oversee a larger network of individual card and game clubs.
Every player on the Arizona Poker Tour is helping to contribute to our club’s exempt purpose: the proliferation of the play, understanding and appreciation of poker throughout Arizona.
