"TAKE on the DIRECTORS" CHALLENGE – The 2014 Summer Directors’ Challenge is almost here and the qualifying period is next week. From Sunday, July 27th to Saturday, August 2nd, the points scored will be entered under a special listing in the Leaderboard so you can keep track of your points (Keep in mind that the location points will not be updated during this week.) The top players will be invited to compete against all of your tournament directors. There will be over $1,000 in prizes up for grab, but I’m sure you’re all just looking for the bragging rights and the free lunch that will be provided for the participants. The score stands at Players – 7; Directors – 5. I can’t wait to if the directors can pull out another desperately needed win. I feel confident now, but we’ll just have to see who our competition is. Good luck!
CHARITY TOURNAMENT – We are sponsoring a tournament to benefit the non-profit organization - GIRLS, INC. This group works to inspire local school-aged girls to be strong, smart and bold. The tournament is open to men and women who are age 18+. Tickets are $35 online @ prior to the day of the event and $40 at the door. Your ticket will include your tournament fee, a drink, a raffle ticket and a door prize. The total prize pool will be $800. The game will be held at Tilted Kilt @ 6pm on Saturday, August 9th. There are many other items to be won through the silent auction and raffle.
Not only will the top 3 people from the Midway Tournament win a ticket to this event, but we’re going to sponsor a few more of our players to this fun event. From Sunday, July 27th until Saturday, August 2nd be sure to check out our Facebook page daily. Sometime during the day, I will post a trivia question relating to poker, JPA, Girls, Inc. or Tilted Kilt. Be the first to respond with the correct answer and you will win an entry to this event. Good luck!

“Life is like a game of poker: If you don't put any in the pot, there won't be any to take out.”

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.
