Real Competition. Real Dealers. Real Fun.
Real Poker is comprised of like-minded, fun loving people, and attempts to bring our collective home games and leagues under one umbrella, in the form of a not-for-profit club where players can compete openly in third party venues. We want to create the best possible experience for our members and their guests, by using dedicated, non-participating dealers, professional equipment, and competitive points races and bonus contests related to our annual season.
The founders and initial members have crowdfunded this private, membership club so all members can equally own and control the operations and finances, as a democratic co-operative. We elect volunteer club officers to enact the will of the majority, as determined at our bi-monthly general membership meetings. Everything is open and transparent, and we believe we’ve created the best “home poker game away from home” for our members and their guests.

Real Poker LLC is a private, membership club operating as a not-for-profit 501c7 (pending) cooperative. Real Poker has created the Arizona Poker Tour as a series of amusement gambling poker tournaments (APGTs) in furtherance of our exempt purpose: the proliferation of the play, understanding, and appreciation of poker in Arizona. This includes, but is not limited to, those 7 of 15 counties without access to a professionally dealt, competitive game.
