Piranha Poker Team

Piranha Poker Team

The Piranha Poker Team is an organization made up of aspiring amateur poker players who compete against each other for points throughout the year via a series of live multi-table No Limit Hold'em tournaments held all over the Bay Area. At the end of the season, the team sends its top players to the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, where they compete in a $1,500 buy-in No Limit Hold'em bracelet tournament.

Current Season

We have started our eighth season! 

As with all previous seasons, this year is building towards a WSOP event. Every member sent to Las Vegas splits any prize money with the rest of the team, so 50% of all prize money is distributed to all full team members.

Season 7 (2012-2013)

We just finished our most successful season in which we sent thirteen players to the WSOP!  We had 4 cashes totaling $21,936 including Pepito Pea's 31st place finish.   Pokernews chronicled Pepito's (AKA Brandon Yu) amazing run on its website.



Past Seasons

Over the past seven seasons, we've sent 71 participants to WSOP events and earned more than $52,000. The environment and level of play created by Piranha has prepared players for success at the WSOP.

Team Goals

We welcome players of all abilities and backgrounds. The team's main goals include:

  • Improving each other's poker skills through fair competition, hand and tournament discussions, and other relevant knowledge sharing.
  • Providing practice that is applicable to WSOP events by creating a tournament environment that is similar to the WSOP in rules, blinds structure, and payouts.
  • Sending our best players to a WSOP event and potentially cashing in this event, thereby creating a financial return on every team member's investment.
