Warwick Poker Society


Welcome to Warwick Poker Society!

Founded in 2002, Warwick Poker Society (WPS), AKA Poker Soc, is the UK’s largest university Poker Society and one of the most active societies on campus with over 100 players every week and an active alumni community with over 3000 members.

When do we play?

Our regular schedule consists of cash games every Monday from 5pm, and a tournament followed by cash games every Wednesday from 5pm during term time. 

The fun doesn’t end when term is over! During the holidays we play online cash games as well as online tournaments. Although, there isn’t an official schedule as these games depend on demand, but they usually run every day! 

What games do we play?

The format we most commonly play is Texas hold'em. We play both cash games and tournaments. Cash games vary in stakes ranging from 1p/2p and upwards. We try and run any game there is interest for, although there is no guarantee that every stake will run. The most common stakes are 5p/10p and 10p/20p and these will run every session. 

We also run live tournaments with varying formats. In the past these have included the: Freshers Tournament, NLH, Tag-Team, Bounty, Mystery Bounty, PKO, PLO4, PLO5, PLO6, Omaha Hi/Lo, Short Deck, Win the Button, Heads-Up, Freezeout, Shootout, Razz, Stud, Short Deck, 5 Card Draw, Dealers Choice, Sit & Go’s, and our flagship event taking place at the end of Term 2, The Warwick Series of Poker (WaSOP) finishing with "The Big One". 

Is the society welcome to beginners?

If you did not understand the above, just come along to any of our sessions, we welcome all beginners and those wanting to learn the game, there will always be an exec member who is happy to teach the game whilst you play! We are open to everyone regardless of skill level and place a great emphasis on teaching and improving our skills together as a society. 

Our Social Side

There is a great social aspect to our society, we host regular trips to the local casinos. We have a football team competing in the inter-society Sunday leauge. We also run one or two circles every term!

What about advanced players?

We welcome people of all skills level and for advanced players there is also the opportunity to represent Team WPS! 

We compete in inter-uni events online and around the country, most recently the UK University Poker Open, with Team WPS sending a team of five to the live final in London after a series of online qualifiers. Also the UPT, where a team of WPS’s six best players are selected to compete in knockout style tournaments. 

Additionally, we are recent winners of the UK Student Poker Championship; winning the main event, the high roller and the team event. 

Warwick Poker Society continues to produce many talented poker players with our notable alumni list including: Ben Heath, Charlie Carell, Rupert Elder, Nicolas Cardyn, Ashley Mason, Kanu7 and Andrew Hulme amongst others.
