What is Team Poker®

  1. INDIVIDUAL and TEAM - SCORING & PAYOUT SYSTEM: Any Structured Tournament Poker Game, and Weighted Payout is possible, 0 to 100%, to either category in Consolidation Tournaments (e.g., 60% payout to Teams - 40% to Individuals; or, 50% - 50%; or, 100% - 0%, etc.). Learn more specifics about the patented TeamPoker® System (TP) at


Example: The inverse of the Individual Finish Positions (IFP) creates the team points for accumulative team score. With 100 players in the finish count, first player out receives 1 point, second 2 points, etc. until winning player receives 100 points for the team and highest team point scores win.  

CARRY THE FLAG/ FLAG TP: An Optional TeamPoker® method is “Carry-The-Flag” (CTF) where the top Individual Finish Positions determine Team Prize Pool Payout as well as Individual. The pre-published Individual and Team Splits are paid out like any tournament. There is no need to keep team score in CTF and the TP HANDICAPPING structure can still be used.

  • No-Contact TP: Teammates are never allowed on the same table with opponents. Teammates may combine and play on same table, heads-up, or among themselves. The tournament tables play until further consolidation can take place, download Seating Protocol PDF.
  • Full-Contact TP: Teammates are known and identified and can play on the same table with opponents.
  1. TP HANDICAP: The optional TeamPoker® Handicap allows any size team to compete and team size to vary in the same tournament. The “Reverse Handicap” (max number of players per team/ actual number) allows smaller sized teams and individuals to maximize their skills (e.g., 3 players max – 1 player min; or 4 players max – 2 players min; etc.). The total team IFPs are multiplied by the Team Handicap to equalize their finish positions, and level the playing field. The team score tie breaker is always the team with the higher IFP. The TP Handicap also provides Prop Betting Type teams CLASSES like: Men vs Women, Country vs Country, etc. Any Class of player is potentially possible.

  2. DISPLAY and RANK: The Tournament DISPLAY SCREEN Displays will Display both INDIVIDUAL and TEAM Positions / Rank in the Tournament Real Time. The Team side of the screen shows and contains “Points” and/or “Points + Chip Count” as in any tournament so the TEAM RANK display will show the combination of Both POINTS +CHIPS.
