The Poker Circuit: TPC Motherboard

TPC Motherboard

Looking to win seats to APT Philippines 2010? The Poker Circuit (TPC) has just what you need: the TPC Motherboard! The basic premise of the TPC Motherboard is that it will start with one tournament at Php 1,000,000 guaranteed. The guaranteed prize pool will then increase as more poker clubs join in. The whole master plan is to have multiple venues all over the Philippines, playing with the same mechanics and same buy-in of PhP 5,000 + 400, contributing to a multimillion peso prize pool. For every Php 500,000 guaranteed by a poker room, nine players will be in the money and will qualify for the TPC Motherboard Finale on the opening day of APT Philippines 2010. For example, if five poker rooms were to contribute Php 1,000,000 each (creating a total guarantee of Php 5,000,000), a total of 90 players would be in the money and advance to the Finale.

Current Guaranteed Prize Pool: PhP 3,010,000


All In, Cebu City; Poker Royale, Pasay City; Midas Touch, Pasig City; King’s Poker, Angeles City


  1. The TPC’s Mother Board will play by the Tournament Director’s Association’s rules (T.D.A.)
  2. Players that qualify to the finals must pay their way to Manila (airfare & accommodation)
  3. Each event’s buy in will be Php 5,000.00 and an entry fee of PhP 400.00. With multiple re-entries up to the end of the 1st break per starting day.
  4. Every PhP 500,000.00 guaranteed (“GTD”) in the prize pool will qualify nine (9) players to the Finals, which will also be considered players “In the Money”. Any additional funds, aside from the guarantee (“GTD”) less than PhP 500,000.00 will be filtered into the prizes for players “In the Money”.
  5. Pay out percentages will be based on the GTD and for every PhP 500,000.00 in the prize pool.
  6. Seats into the APT Main Event will be included into the prize pool.
  7. All venues will use the same blind structure and starting stack provided by the TPC as indicated in the table below.
  8. For the start of the Finals, blinds will be rolled back to the start of the round where the earliest finishing venue to hit number of qualified players needed.
  9. Players chip stacks will be recorded and carried over to the Finals.
  10. Players will be allowed to play multiple venues and may qualify into the finals more than once.
  11. Players qualifying more than once to the finals cannot aggregate their chip stacks. The Player must choose which chip stack to play first. Only when they exhaust the chosen chip stack can they move on and play their next chip stack.
  12. Finals will happen on opening day of the APT Philippines (August 23rd 2010).
