Thank you for your interest in our event. Online registration has ended, however tickets for players and spectators are available tomorrow night at 5pm at the River East Art Center. Please join us if you want to play. Back for a third exciting year, Children’s Oncology Services, Inc. has partnered with the Majestic Star Casinos for Chicago's most exciting Texas Hold 'Em Poker Tournament ever! The Majestic Star Charity Poker Championship benefiting Children's Oncology Services, Inc. returns to the River East Art Center on Thursday, January 25 at 6:00 pm. Dan Bernstein from WSCR AM 670 The Score will call the shots as 350 poker players battle it out for the ULTIMATE prize - a $10,000 seat and all expenses paid travel to the World Poker Tour Foxwoods Poker Classic on April 1, 2007. A $560 seat to the Heartland Poker Tour held at the Majestic Star Casino in Indiana will also be awarded to one of the 10 finalists. This year, the tournament will follow a double shootout with a freeze out structure. When you enter the room, you can sit at any seat at any table. Each player will begin with 10,000 chips, and blinds will start at 100/200, doubling every 15 minutes for a 90 minute period. At the end of the 90 minute period, the two players with the highest chip counts at each table will move on to the next round. If you are eliminated from the tournament at this point, you will be eligible to enter our Second Chance Raffle for $50. This buys you a chance to win one of ten seats we will raffle off to gain access to the second round of play. These tickets can be purchased with cash, check, Visa or Mastercard, and there is no limit to how many tickets you can purchase. The second round, a single elimination no-limit tournament, will feature the top 80 players (70 chip leaders plus ten raffle winners) to compete for the $10,000 seat. Each player will begin with 20,000 chips and blinds will double every 15 minutes beginning at 1,000/2,000. The final table will consist of 10 players, where each player will be awarded a prize with a cash value in excess of $500, based on when they are eliminated from the tournament. Both rounds of the tournament are no-limit, and NO REBUYS will be permitted at any point in the tournament. Your player ticket purchase includes coat check, unlimited top-shelf bar, and an incredible array of food provided by Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbeque and Cold Stone Creamery. All poker tables will be staffed by professional dealers from Majestic Star Casinos in Buffington Harbor, Indiana. Spectators are also welcome to join us for only $50. You can enjoy all the great food and drinks, and watch your friends battle it out for the greatest charity poker tournament prize around. Valet parking is available for an additional cost.
