About Champions Social
Champions Social was built off of World Series of Poker (WSOP) winner Robert Williamson III’s passion for the game. Williamson played poker for the first time as a child when his dad, an accomplished poker player himself, suggested they play poker on family game night with the kids’ real allowance. Williamson fell in love with the game to a point where he kept playing, improving each time and even playing against older, more experienced players. The great joy and fulfillment that he felt while playing led to him opening Champions Social in Houston, Texas–a place where poker players of all levels can gather as a community and consider it their home.
