I play bar poker in Virginia.. I dunno if it's the same league your talking about, because they only play in VA, not the other states you mentioned. If you want the webpage that has all the info just pm me and I will send it to you.
It's mostly like freerolls
for points (top 16 get points in each game, and if you bust out they do 50 point side games), as there are nightly prizes, but its only 25$(10$ towards online store and 15$ giftcard to the bar) for first in the first game and 10$ bar gift card in the second game. But if you are in the top half of the points at the end of the month you can go to the monthly tournament where it pays the final table :
1st Place - $350 Buy-in to WSOP Regional Championship (Ring Event in AC) Or
$250 ECPL GIFT CARD Or
$200 Walmart Gift Card (All Chops are $200)
2nd Place - $50 Walmart
3rd Place - $25 Walmart
4th Place - $10 ECPL
5th Place - $10 ECPL
6th Place - $10 ECPL
Than there is a longer like 10 month leaderboard where top player gets a $1000 WSOP buyin and top 150 from or so play a 4 day Tourney for a $1000 buyin.
There's also another league that plays a little farther from my house. They play at Colonial Downs horse track ( 5 or so times last summer) but only have 1 day set up this year so far, July 23rd. This league than plays at a bar afterwards for 100$ and I think might play other places, but I only go to the horse track ones and one time the bar after.
That league is too far for me, but the first league has multiple locations a night, one being close to my house 3 times a week.
