*** Team Sky Poker is taking a short break from April 2012. We'll be bringing it back in the summer, so watch this space on how you could represent Sky Poker on the UK poker circuit! ***

Have you ever wanted to match your wits against the best players on Sky Poker? Dreamed of representing Sky Poker in tournaments around the world? Why are you still dreaming? You could be in the newly formed Team Sky Poker!

  • - Double Cash for Points (half going towards live tournament buy-ins)
  • - Appear on TV and gain a great profile on Sky Poker

Become a Team Sky Poker member

The 30 leading players in each of the Cash, Tournament and Sit & Go leagues over a three month period will have an opportunity to win their way into Team Sky Poker. From April 2011 onwards, qualifying players will play in one tournament to determine the new member ogf Team Sky Poker. The top six finishing players from the tournament will all earn their place onto Team Sky Poker. Therefore, each quarter there will be six new additions to Team Sky Poker.

Once on Team Sky Poker, we will have the ability to retain players within the team if we feel you've done a particularly good job. This will not impact the number of seats offered in the following month - three new players will be added each and every quarter.
