Manawatu Festival Of Poker 2018/2019

Brought to you by the Manawatu Poker Club Inc & PokerFun NZ

8 tournaments spread between Thursday December 27th and Sunday January 6th. Very different formats with different buy ins so there is something for everyone.

Players can register in advance with Gerry. Advance registrations must be accompanied by payment. Click here to register. Please note, your registration won't be finalised until payment is received.

All tournaments start at the designated start time. There is no late registration (except for the Short Deck Texas Hold'Em tournament which is a rebuy tournament). Once the clock is ticking, registration is closed. For the Pairs & Teams events, there is a 30 min "grace period" for members to be late. This is not late registration. At least one member of the Pair/Team must be present at the start of the tournament. Late members will have their chips placed on the table and will be blinded out. If, after 30 minutes they have not arrived, the chips will be removed and their Pair/Team will be eliminated from the tournament.

5% fundraising deduction will be taken from the prize pool for authorised purposes. The authorised purpose is to purchase equipment for the Manawatu Poker Club.
