There are places that play every week.
I remember seeing leagues in both Louisville and Lexington, where free games were held a few times a week at different locations (bars mostly). This was run by some nation-wide company who ran similar events in other cities. You got points depending on where you finished each game, and the points added up.
People with high enough scores at the end of the season were invited to a game that had real prizes.
I want to say that the winner of each city went to a bigger/national game, where the winner got a WSoP
ticket, but I'm not sure.
I checked HomePokerGames for KY (http://www.homepokergames.com/kentucky.php) and that have some clubs listed.
