HomePokerTourney.com is your one-stop source for all the advice and information you'll ever need to host a No-limit Texas Hold'em poker tournament in your home. I'll help you buy the best poker chips and playing cards. I'll guide you through the buyin, how many poker chips to issue each player and how to seat and move players. We'll calculate your blinds schedule so that your poker tournament ends when you want it to end. I even have a free poker blinds timer that you can use to time your blinds. HomePokerTourney.com is the internet's best source for poker rules including Robert's Rules of Poker, dealer errors, and my own poker tournament rules. I have instructions on how to deal Texas Hold'em and help with button placement, betting, raising and all-in bets. You can download and print poker rules, poker blinds schedules and various other posters to hang on the wall during your game.

Howdy, I'm nutN2Lewz - that's a picture of me in my barrel. I host a monthly poker tournament in my basement and constantly run into folks asking how to organize and run a poker tournament in your home. I'm no poker expert (You can tell a lot about a man by the clothes he wears!) but this site should help you organize your next home poker party. What is the size of a poker table and where can I find felt? Should I build a poker table or modify an existing table for poker? How many poker chips do I need for my tournament? How many chips should each player start with? What blinds schedule should I use and how long will my poker tournament last? How do I seat poker players at multiple tables and move them to a final table? Where can I download poker rules? What happens when the dealer forgets to burn a card? Where can I find a poker blinds timer? Where can I find poker players? I've got answers to all these questions and more ...

This website assumes that you already have a basic knowledge of how to play poker. Click on How to Play Texas Hold'em if you need a quick refresher. There's a ton of information on this site but don't be intimidated! I've tried to cover all the bases so that when a problem does arise during your tournament, you will know how to handle it. Running a poker tournament is quite easy and there is certainly no need to read this entire site. Everything you really need to know is included on my Poker Tournament Quick Start page.

Are you thinking about purchasing poker chips? My Poker Chips page contains general information about poker chips. My Poker Chip Reviews page has dozens of poker chip reviews - Paulson, Nevada Jack, and ChipCo. My How Many Poker Chips Do I Need page and my Poker Chip Calculator will help you determine how many poker chips you need to run a poker tournament. You can even create a poker blinds schedule to print and hang on your poker room wall.

Are you looking for the best playing cards for poker? Check out my Playing Cards page for general information about playing cards and my Playing Card Reviews page for reviews of dozens of playing cards. I have reviews of KEM, Copag, Gemaco, Dal Negro, Modiano, Royal and A Plus plastic playing cards. I have images of each card on my Playing Card Images page. A Playing Card Buyer's Guide and Playing Card Damage Tests round out my information about playing cards.

My Poker Clock Reviews page contains reviews of poker tournament clocks and blinds timers. I also have a Free Poker Blinds Timer and a poker clock features chart comparing the different poker clocks available.

There are several versions of poker rules and poker rule books available on HomePokerTourney. My own Poker Tournament Rule Book, the latest version of Robert's Rules of Poker, and the TDA Rules (Tournament Directors Association) and are always available in a booklet format that you can print on your own computer printer.

The Home Poker Tourney Poker Forums allow you to post messages and get answers to your poker tournament questions. You can also discuss poker chips, playing cards, and poker clocks. The HPT Portal page is a fantastic way to enter the HomePokerTourney website. You can quickly check to see if you have any messages from the forums, read the latest posts, and scan the latest poker news headlines.

The HPT Mobile site contains much of the same information as this main site, but is formatted in a style that is more suitable for mobile devices. The HPT Mobile site includes poker rules for mobile devices that can be easily referenced from your mobile phone while you are playing poker.

Make sure you check out the HomePokerTourney YouTube page that contains dozens of poker videos including video poker chip reviews and video playing card reviews. The HowToShuffle YouTube page contains dozens of videos on how to deal poker.

Hosting a poker game in your home is a legal activity where I live. Make sure it is a legal activity in your neck of the woods before you host or participate in a poker game (call your local police non-emergency phone number). No wagers are accepted on this site, which is for information purposes only. Use the information provided on this site at your own risk.

I hope you enjoy this website and find it useful. I consider it a pleasure and a privilege to have the opportunity to teach you a thing or two about hosting a poker tournament. Hopefully, one day, I'll have the opportunity to teach you a few more lessons at the poker table!

Good luck and ... shuffle up and deal!
