What do we do?

Welcome to the BU Poker Society!

Our society offers weekly No Limit Holdem poker tournaments for players of all skill levels.

The society gives students a chance to win good cash prizes every week through a league based system, without the risk of losing large amounts of money.

Primarily it's a chance for all students to be sociable and have a good time, in a relaxed, comfortable environment.

New to poker? Always wanted to learn?

Winners of the Student Poker Championship team Event in 2017, you'll be mixing and learing from some of the best student poker players in the country! 

We run taster sessions in the first two weeks of term for you to come along, learn and soak up the atmosphere, more importantly though we continually do training sessions for those of all skill levels so you can learn and improve at your own pace!

Membership non refundable.

COVID-19 Changes:

As you can imagine we have had to change the way we play to be compliant with Government and Student Union guidelines. Our new measures are as follows:

  • Masks are required by all players.
  • We play with 6 players max at each table and set up tables ensuring players have a safe distance between them.
  • Adhering to the max capacity rule for the room put in place by the University.
  • Hand sanitiser is mandatory on entry.
  • The equipment is cleaned before each event.
  • We have an NHS Track and Trace QR code for the society as per the SU's requirements.
