Sign Up Offer


The lads at @Footyaccums have been flying with their poker leagues and we have put together a blog explaining how to get involved, what you can win and how to play poker if you are unsure on all the aspects.

Texas Hold'em Poker is a card game in which a player bets that the value of his or her hand and believes it is greater than that of the hands held by others, in which each subsequent player must either equal or raise the bet or drop out, and in which the player holding the highest hand at the end of the betting wins the pot.

Over the last month the Footyaccumulators night league has seen huge amounts of players on a weekly basis with three tournaments a week commencing on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday from 7PM onwards.

It costs £5.50 to enter the tournament with chances to win your stake back by knocking other players out and picking up bounties which sees you receive cash rewards.

If you are unfortunately knocked out before late registration ends, you have the opportunity to re-enter a maximum of two times, for the same original stake. After late registration ends usually just after 8PM you can not play again if knocked out.

Here are the numbers from the first month of @Footyaccums league.

How The Game Is Played

When playing Texas HoldEm poker, every player is dealt two cards face down – these are called your 'hole cards'.

Then there is a round of betting where you can Check, Bet or Fold.

This stage of the game is known as pre-flop and what you should do is dependent on those hole cards, or starting hand.

If you are unsure about the value of different poker hand combinations it may be worthwhile checking out our poker hand rankings page.

When all the betting has finished three shared cards are dealt face up in the middle of the table.

This is called the flop.


After this there is another round of betting, then a fourth shared card – called the turn – is dealt.
