Welcome to Poker Del Pueblo!



Welcome to your own personal poker tournament! Who – me?! Yes, YOU! Poker Del Pueblo®is for everyone, ladies and gentlemen, students, retired couples, businessmen, soccer players, nurses, farmers, housewives, fire fighters, school teachers, professors, complete beginners and everyone else with a curiosity for cards and Texas Hold’em! It is completely FREE to participate in Poker Del Pueblo® - just go to your local bar, restaurant, cantina or casino and sign up – and you can win amazing sponsor prizes, gifts, merchandise and with a little bit of luck and skill make it to the National Final and win travel packages to big live tournaments with hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money!

Never played Texas Hold’em before? NO PROBLEM! You can find beginner tutorial articles and videos right here on our web site to get you off to a good start. Timid about playing with people you may not know? Well, why don’t you get your friends together and start your own tournament? Just have your local bar manager sign up a Poker Del Pueblo® Table and you can fit in 6-8 players.

The winner of your Table will be celebrated as the local champion. He or she will win a special prize and receive a personal invitation to come play the National Final in San Jose and get a unique chance to beat the field and win one of the travel packages (worth $5,000) to the Punta Cana Classic in October 2012 with a guaranteed prize pool of $500,000!

But everyone’s a winner in Poker Del Pueblo® - our main sponsors True Poker and others are pampering you with prizes and special offers – please visit and support our sponsors as they support Poker Del Pueblo® and Latin American poker.

Not a gambler? Well, neither are we in Poker Del Pueblo® - there are no buy-in requirements and no cash prizes – we are simply enjoying Texas Hold’em as the amazing game of skill and luck it is. You play with cards and chips just like you see it on TV, but instead of cash we play for points – and the player with the most points after 6 rounds of play is the winner! It is that simple. Millionaires and regular people play under the same conditions, everyone is equal – because this is Poker for the People – welcome to Poker Del Pueblo®!
