Congrats to Frank Hall, Joseph Constantin and Mark Mazel for being 1st thru 3rd in the city. They will receive gift cards for $75, $50 and $25, respectively.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS & INFO – If you have access to get on NAS Jax, I must encourage you to attend a special night of poker and fun at Dewey’s this Wednesday at 7pm. (Thursday’s game is cancelled for this week only.) We have been invited to attend their Customer Appreciation Night. Dewey dollars will be awarded to 1st thru 4th place and there will be a high hand promotion. I’ll be around with prizes and gift cards. A buffet will be available for all customers for just $7, which includes a beverage. I look forward to seeing you all there!
Every night at Billie’s Billiards features an opportunity for extra bonus chips. After your initial bonus chips for your purchase, they will reward you with an additional 100 in chips for every $ you spend over $5. The additional bonus chips will be awarded at the end of the first hour of play. (Ex. If you make a purchase over $5, you receive 1500 in bonus chips. At the end of the 1st hour, the bartender notifies the tournament director that you have spent a total of $11. You receive an extra 600 in chips.)
Cliff’s Monday night game will now feature a $10 bar tab for the winner. Thursday’s bar tab will continue, but Wednesday’s will be discontinued after this week.

“The good news is that in every deck of fifty-two cards, there are 2,598,960 possible hands. The bad news is that you are only going to be dealt one of them.”

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.
