Just like a bowling league, Ante Up Poker Leagues bring competitive players together on a regular basis to match wits at the table. All participating poker rooms are free to design their league themselves, but all feature at least one Ante Up Cruise or Ante Up Poker Tour World Championship prize package for the winner, plus a personalized Ante Up League Champion jacket and his or her photo in Ante Up Magazine!

Here are the details on current and completed leagues, and please encourage the manager of your favorite room to contact Scott Long at (727) 331-4335 to start a league close to home:
