Sheepshead Tournament

Held each spring, open to all levels of experience.  Sheepshead is a game of skill and although easily played by even the most inexperienced, due to the limitation of players, many consider 3 handed the best/most difficult. 

3-Hand Sheepshead Tournament

Since 1970 there has been a 3-handed tournament run in Wisconsin in the month of March.  Players can play as many sessions as they wish, with their top four scores of 40 and higher receiving a cash award for expenses based on a percentage of fees paid, minus expenses, based on their score(s) standing. 

In each session, 3 players play 48 hands at each table or, when needed, a table of 4, where the dealer sits out.  Most of the hosts offer two sessions with the second session starting at the completion of the first session.  Table and position at the table are assigned by luck of the draw, overseen by the tournament Captain.  Suggested table stakes are 25-50-75 and Double on the Bump / Punish the picker.  Entry fee per session is $7.00 ($6.50 entry, $0.25 captain’s fee, $0.25 hall/host rent) per session, plus $0.25 per Bump.

We are currently scoring on paper, but are looking to offer an optional smart phone scoring.

Captains set up a host location such as at a bar, American Legend Hall, home, and manage/oversee their sessions.
