"All-In" Fun


Jack O'Brien

Harrogate Poker Champion

Congratulations to Jack O'Brien, who was crowned

Harrogate Poker Champion for HPL XVII.

Congratulations to our new and youngest ever Harrogate Poker Champion Jack O’Brien

Jack played well all night and thoroughly deserved his win, he held off the spirited challenge of Jock Stead who came very close to the unique feat of winning Superstars and the HPL Bracelet.

Pat Deeley did well to see through the bottom of her glass to claim third place and Pawel Guz was a little unlucky to finish fourth. 

Andy Beaumont represented the Otley contingent with an excellent fifth, Rob Mumford held on to a short stack as long as he could and finished a creditable sixth. A special mention to Mark Head who followed his instincts and blew half a million on a semi bluff to finish 7th and Kieran Kennerley who busted just before the final table in eighth after being out-kicked

Over all it was a great night at the Cons and I would like to thank Kev and his team for the excellent service and also Evan Challis who provided a supper fit for a King with Chilli, Curry and cheese and biscuits to follow.

Well done to all players who joined us to make it a special night, I think we may have just found our new home and format for the finals night in the Harrogate Poker League.

Fixtures & Venues

Harrogate Poker League Introduction

The Harrogate Poker League (HPL) is a Texas Hold em Poker competition played in pubs and clubs in and around the Harrogate area and will start its seventeenth season (HPL XVIII) on Sunday 7th January 2018.

Each tournament is professionally run by trained tournament directors and prizes are paid in cash as all the entry fees are returned to the participants.

In addition to those cash prizes for each event, a points system forms the basis of a league table for each venue and a global table encompasses every fixture throughout the twenty eight week season.

Qualifiers from these tables are invited to a FREE end of season poker extravaganza where trophies are presented and substantial cash prizes can be won.

Harrogate Poker League Roadshows

The now legendary Harrogate Poker Roadshows offer a lucrative escape from the pressures of the league events by combining different formats and structures of poker tournaments at venues with a license that can support an increased prize fund.

With Deepstacks, Rebuys and Bounty Hunters just some of the events in the calendar, all with excellent prize funds these events often attract 60 or more runners and always provide us with days out that live long in the memory.

Please note that some events require advance membership of the host venue.
