Startup Poker 2.0 Event Basics

Capacity for events are limited and poker seats are even more so. As such, not everyone who applies to attend will receive a ticket or a poker seat.

These events are for full-time founders working on venture-scalable startups and active startup investors only.

A portion of the poker seats will be reserved for Startup Haven founder and investor members, in membership order (i.e., Level 2, Level 1, Level 0)

If you do receive a ticket, please do not bring uninvited guests.

The event is free to attend, including food and drink, but all poker players are responsible for their buy-ins.

The Startup Poker 2.0 Game  

The poker at Poker 2.0 is real — but the stakes are kept low to keep it and to keep the focus on building relationships. Whether you’re new to poker or a salty old pro, we structure the game to be a great experience for everyone, regardless of skill level — beginners are welcome!

  • The poker game is tournament-style Texas Hold’em.
  • Buy-in starts at $10.
  • All players compete for the combined pot of all the $10 buyins and add-ons.
  • There are unlimited rebuys for the first 5 blind levels and a 150% add-on at the break.
  • All of your rebuys and your add-ons must be made at the level of your first buy-in.
  • Pot will be distributed to the winning players.
