Barnegat NJ Chapter

Welcome to the Main Event Social Club, Barnegat, NJ Chapter.
The next scheduled game is a morning game on Saturday June 22nd and it is a Cash Game

Go to the calendar to Join the Game.


If you are a Hold ’em poker enthusiast, who love playing in Hold ’em poker tournaments and poker cash games, living in a specific community in Barnegat, NJ there is a Poker Club just for you. The Main Event Social Club is a place where Hold ’em poker players, men and women, who have a love of the game meet to play low buy-in Hold ’em Tournaments and Cash Games. All games will be scheduled to play on randomly selected Friday evenings.  


To Sign up for a Game you must be a member.


The Main Event Social Club is an exclusive membership-only club. There are NO dues, but you must be a member to participate. I am Jersey John.  I started the Main Event Social Club in Dallas, Texas, then when we moved to Navarre, Florida offered membership to residents there where we had many friendly,  professionally run games. Check out the Club Reviews.  I am excited about moving to Barnegat, NJ where I can now offer membership to many of Barnegat’s poker enthusiasts. 


The club will schedule bi-weekly Texas Hold ‘Em Tournaments and Cash games open to a selected number of individuals.  Scheduled games can be found by clicking on the “Calendar” button found on the right side bar or on the menu.


All of our Hold ‘Em poker  games conform to Section 2C:37-2 of the New Jersey Penal Code , that is 1)  there are no rakes, no person receives any economic benefit other than their personal winnings, 2) A person may not directly or indirectly charge admission or any other fee for participation in the game.


All of our Poker Tournaments are low-level (usually $25+ buyin), deep stack and usually always no rebuys, but members will always dictate what is played as long as there are enough players for the game. On poker tournaments we sometimes have a cap on how high the blind levels will go, which depends on the number of players and number of chips in play. This is done to maximize the amount of time we can play “poker” without it becoming an all-in pre-flop fest because of blinds becoming too high in relation to the number of chips in play. As players drop out of a poker tournament, they will usually play a $.50-$1 Poker Cash game if there is enough interest. We have customized poker chips for our Poker Cash Games specifically so there is no risk of renegade chips being introduced into the Cash Game.
