Additional Important Information -

Flip Rush "flips" are individual satellite tournaments which are played all-in pre-flop by 4 players. If the hand is split, the players who split play another hand all-in pre-flop, until a winner is determined.

Each event you play, your prize winnings (Gold Rush $) will be recorded against your name and held securely. You can contribute to this running record via multiple Flip Rush wins, or top up with cash in order to build up a Gold Rush entrance amount of $700. For example, you may win 2x $50 flips, ($370 total for 2x $185 Flip Rush entries), then elect to use that value from your records, plus $330 cash, to play in the Gold Rush.

For players who love our Gold Rush structure, and build up Gold Rush Seats faster than we can run the events, players with 2+ Gold Rush Seats recorded ($1400+ value) may also use an extra Gold Rush Seat to buy direct in to our WAPL Live Table for $700, for the ultimate Cash Game experience, streamed online to the world!

Gold Rush Main Events (Not the Super Gold Rush Events) will be scheduled regularly, and the frequency with which we schedule to run them will vary with the speed at which Gold Rush Seats are won. We anticipate to announce an upcoming date for the following month once we have had 16 Gold Rush Seat winners, which gives us a $10,000 prize pool, and a month for the next 16 Seats to be won (or filled up by direct $700 buy-ins!)

Gold Rush Events and Super Gold Rush Events are run over 2 days. We may adjust what venues Day 1 and Day 2 are played on once we have tested and seen what works well for us and our players. We also plan to move the regular Gold Rush Events between our venues to allow the majority of players to attend different Gold Rush Events from different locations. (ie. not always North based venues for Gold Rush events, we will bring them Central and South too periodically.)

Super Gold Rush Events will be scheduled occasionally as demand builds at this stage, and these venues and dates will be advised well in advance.

In accordance with WAPL's strict adherence to RGL requirements, all funds collected and held for players as part of the Gold Rush Events will be held securely and by agreement between the Permit Holding Not for Profit/Charities and will be reconciled frequently by your WAPL Team and the Permit Holding Organisations. You can be informed of the current balance of your Gold Rush funds in person at our events or via another identifiable medium (WAPL Facebook Page Private Message, via an email address we have registered with your WAPL Membership sent to info@wapokerleague.com.au , etc.)

Gold Rush funds are non-refundable and non-transferable except in extenuating circumstances (if the player is permanently leaving the state/country, banned from the league, etc, they may request in writing to have their balance transferred to another player)

Upon such a time that we may decide to cease the Gold Rush Series of events, any outstanding moneys held by the Permit Holding Organisations will be returned to their confirmed winners.

10/07/2017 - Introducing the WAPL Live Table - Watch us play! -


Permanent Link

We have been running the WAPL Live Table since April 2017, recording and releasing footage (if you've missed it) to our YouTube channel (http://youtube.com/wapokerleague) and Facebook (http://facebook.com/wapokerleague)

Now we've expanded to live streaming the action from the table, with a 15 minute delay!

From May, we will (unless we experience issues) be streaming our WAPL Live Table games to our Twitch.tv channel, http://twitch.tv/wapokerleague

Make sure you head there and follow us, so you get notified when we go live!

Our live games are delayed by 15 minutes, to avoid the potential for viewers to influence hands in play, so that means that for a 6pm-midnight event, you should be able to watch us live from 6:15pm until the end of gaming.

Please get involved, hop into the live chat and give us your comments, suggestions, and any criticisms you might have for us to make the WAPL Live Table experience the best it can be for our viewers, members, and players, and help us spread the word around the local (and wider) poker communities.

If you want a seat on the WAPL Live Table, email us (info@wapokerleague.com.au) and we will find you a spot, but please be patient as seating is in high demand!

WAPL Events are conducted at Gaming Functions by Permit issued under Section 47 of the Act for various charity and not for profit organisations.

We promote and conduct responsible gaming. If you feel you may have a problem gaming issue, we encourage you to call the Gambling Helpline on 1800 858 858 and also see http://www.gamblinghelpline.org.au
