What’s the structure of a Triangle Startup Poker game?
Triangle Startup Poker games are structured as No-limit Texas Hold’em tournaments. Just like the World Series of Poker that you watch on TV except there is no buy in. At the end of the 5th round, we play down to the winners.
The blinds start out nice and easy (20 mins each) to give everyone plenty of time to hang out and play without worrying about busting out. After the 5th round, the blinds go up more aggressively.
Players receive chip bonuses for making a business announcement about their startup. (But we will take chips away if you go too long – we are about playing the game, you know.)
Please respect our Code of Conduct. Players are reminded to refrain from discussing specific details of securities offerings or fundraising at our events.
Why is Triangle Startup Poker only for founders, non-founder startup executives and investors?
Triangle Startup Poker players understand the challenges of the startup founders’ experience, especially the difficulty of making new high-quality connections.
