League play will take place in all noon Saturday tournaments from Feb. 21 through May 16. Players who pay the additional $10 league fee each week will be eligible for league points. The player with the most league points at the end of the league will win an Ante Up Poker Cruise package for two for the Nov. 7 sailing out of Tampa, Fla., plus two $500 gift cards for airfare, a personalized Ante Up League Champion’s jacket and his or her picture in Ante Up Magazine.
Players earn points for entering a league tournament, and additional points for finishing in the top five. All players also will be eligible to qualify for a league-only freeroll tournament on May 23, with the prize pool made up of all league fees collected.
Ante Up Poker Cruises transforms the conference centers aboard regularly scheduled Royal Caribbean and NCL cruise sailings into a professionally staffed and equipped poker room, featuring cash games, tournaments, free classes and an open-bar cocktail party.
