“If you always start with the worst hand, you never have a bad beat story to tell.”

- Chuck Thompson, writer and poker player


JPA was started in October of 2004 as a Texas Hold'Em League. We supply locations for people from all over the Jacksonville and Orange Park, FL areas to play Poker Tournaments FREE of charge with NO TIPPING/PAYING DEALERS, NO BUY-IN or SIGN-UP FEE of any kind to our players. These are NOT TURBO GAMES. You aren't forced to play because blinds go up so fast that you can't play your cards the way you want to. This is the REAL THING! Each tournament is setup & run by JPA in different bar & restaurant locations weekly around the Jacksonville area. Millions of people are on-line playing poker daily, but that does not compare to playing in person with other players of varying skills & trying to read people for bluffs.

JPA is giving the public a much-needed outlet to join in the fastest growing phenomenon in the country today & FREE of charge. Players learn to hone their skills as well as enjoy the excitement & camaraderie of a live tournament situation without gambling. Playing with JPA is the BEST way to prepare players to ready themselves for cash play at the local card room, on board the gambling boats or even Las Vegas, but most play because it's just good clean fun!

We have recently expanded our list of available games to include Omaha, Eight-or-Better Omaha, Pineapple, Crazy Pineapple, Seven-Card Stud, Razz, Double Deal Hold'Em and many other varieties of poker. The mixed games have started to become quite popular, so if you're looking for a little variety, be sure to check out our dealers' choice game locations.
