The World League Poker Championships will bring TONS of players from the largest poker leagues around the world including the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada.

You will not want to miss out on this awesome experience!


The Experience

This is an experience you won't find ANYWHERE else. You aren't coming for just one event. This is a series of cash tournaments and parties with fellow league poker players.


Plus, the winner of the 2021 World League Poker Championship MIAN EVENT will not only take home the big cash 1st Place prize and the WLPC Trophy, but they will be enshrined in the World Tavern Poker Hall of Fame just like past Champions!


We've said it before and we'll say it again - this is an experience you will never forget. Play poker and party in Las Vegas and win tons of cash with your league poker friends. No matter what happens, you can't lose!

The Poker

Tons of amazing events will take place, with cash, Major Event tournament seats, and plenty of bragging rights on the line. Whether it's the WLPC Main Event, the World Tavern Poker National Championships & National TOC with huge prizes and WSOP seats on the line, or the big cash prizes in our featured events, there's plenty of opportunities to win big in Vegas!


Cash tournaments are open to participating League players with an Access Pass. League-specific Championship events are open to the qualified players from that league.


This is the event you have been waiting for! Hundreds of league poker players will take place in this epic event. William McGrotty, Jacob Miller, Chris Nunes, Kim Mercer, Allison Leivers, and Tyrone Smith have become World Champions - will you be next?



This one is all about you - the players! Enjoy a deeper starting chip stack to give you room to play against your fellow league poker players. Always a favorite!


The World League Poker Championships will feature nearly a dozen events. It's the biggest poker party of the year! We're working on the schedule and will have more announcements coming soon.

Full schedule is subject to change.


Play and Party in Sin City!

Every day and every night of the World League Poker Championships is a party! But the MAIN THEMED PARTY will feature performances and entertainment that you soon will not forget!


Party ticket holders will enjoy a free buffet (must have a Party ticket to enter), cash bar, and plenty of top-notch entertainment.




Nothing gives you the full experience of the World League Poker Championships like staying on site! 


In years past, several players tried to save a few bucks by staying at a cheaper hotel. But what they spent in cab/Uber fare and travel time (plus missing out on so much of the event) just didn't add up. Stay on site!

**PLEASE NOTE: Moonshiner's Upgrade is Only Valid with Access Pass. This is an optional upgrade for the Poker Only and Party & Poker Access Pass - it is NOT a standalone item!


Most of the tournaments in the World League Poker Championships will be held in a HUGE Ballroom at The Orleans. Because this is not traditional gaming space, a cash bar will be available (free drinks while you play usually applies to the Poker Room and Casino Floor).

However, we've negotiated to bring the MOONSHINER'S UPGRADE back for the WLPC! This means for $20, you can enjoy FREE DRINKS (but don't forget to tip the waitstaff!) while playing in our events in the Ballroom.

Moonshiner's Upgrades will also be available to purchase for Access Pass holders at The Orleans.

The Schedule

The 2021 World League Poker Championships will take place over 5 days this November 6-10, including the Welcome Party, World Tavern Poker National Championships, the Main-Themed Party, the WLPC Main Event and International Cup, and so much more!



--  Dealer add-ons are optional additions to your starting chip stack. Dealers usually make much more money dealing cash tables as opposed to tournament tables. Offering an add-on helps them out and gives you more chips to play with. It's a win win!

-- All tournaments are subject to Nevada Gaming Commission approval and can be changed at any time without prior notice.

-- Events in purple (World Tavern Poker) or gold (other leagues) are League-only tournaments and are open only to those who qualified from their respective leagues.

Frequently Asked Questions

Note: Don't forget that Daylight Savings Time ends during the WLPC!


The WLPC runs from Saturday, November 6th thru Wednesday, November 10th. Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 7th at 2am Vegas time. That means when the clock strikes 2am, it will actually be 1am. Make sure you factor this into your plans!


Is the World League Poker Championships a single event or a tournament series?


BOTH! The WLPC is a tournament series spanning five days with over a dozen cash events and awesome parties throughout. The World League Poker Championships is also a tournament, where players from participating leagues all around the world compete for the big 1st place cash prize and the title of World Champion.


When will Registration be open?


Registration will be open starting at 10am on Saturday. Registration will open between 9am and 10am each day thereafter, and run to around 4-5pm.


Will I need a Players Card to play in tournaments at The Orleans?


Yes, and you can get your 'B-Connected' Players Card after going through Registration. You will be directed where to go to get your card. 


Does purchasing an Access Pass include my buy-ins for the cash tournaments?


No it does not. Purchasing an Access Pass gives you access to the cash tournaments during the series. Tournament buy-ins are separate and must be paid by the player to enter a tournament.


What is the Moonshiner's Upgrade?


The Mooonshiner's Upgrade for $20 allows you to enjoy free drinks while playing in a WLPC event in the Ballroom at The Orleans. It is only valid with an Access Pass, however (it is NOT a standalone item).


Can I purchase the Moonshiner's Upgrade before the event? During the event?


Yes to both! It's best to buy it while available online, but you will be able to purchase a Moonshiner's Upgrade on-site at WLPC Registration as well.


Why are there resort fees?


Resort fees have become commonplace at almost every property of note. We've been able to hold them off in the past, but unfortunately, these fees will be charged moving forward for regular room booking. However, it's still worthwhile to stay on site! Our special rates are hard to beat, and you simply can't beat the convenience (saves money, time, and energy) of staying on-site. Plus, resort fees at The Orleans include room Wi-Fi, access to a Fitness Center, in-room coffee, and more.


Will there be tickets to the Main Themed Party for sale during the WLPC?


Possibly! Main Party tickets may be available for sale on site (price TBA) depending on availability (we expect a HUGE  crowd this year!). But we highly recommend purchasing a Party & Poker Access Pass to get the full WLPC experience.
