The opening weekend for the new "Windy City Poker Tour" was a great success even with the snow storm that rolled into town on Saturday night/Sunday morning!
Players came out both days to play some great tournament structures, win lots of cash, and complete for seats at a televised feature table in May!
On Saturday at Durbins in Tinley Park we got the event started at noon with 57 entries for the $50 deep stack opening event. This 20,000 chip starting stack tournament ran strong all day with Sam Miller taking first place in the first event.

The 4th annual All-In for Wishes charity poker tournament to benefit the Make A Wish Foundation was held in Albany New York this past weekend. This year's event featured a televised livestream with hole card information via an RFID Poker table from Ted Leahy at Lucky Leahy's. The TV production started right after the re-buy period ended and went all the way to a crowning of a champion.
More than 5 hours of coverage was hosted by James Allen, Kirk Fallah, Greg Merson, and Lee Childs. Over $20,000 was raised at the event which will go to benefit the Make A Wish Foundation. You can watch the coverage on Youtube.
