9th Annual Aces Up Charity Poker Tournament

Aces Up - Tim King - Urban Prep AcademyOn Thursday, December 3rd, Urban Prep Academies will be hosting its 9th Annual Aces Up Charity Poker Tournament, making it one of the longest running charitable poker events in Chicago.  Hundreds of players will hit the felt, trying to best one another in this game of skill and chance, all vying for a piece of the prize purse valued at more than $10,000.  

Last year's event attracted hundreds of players and spectators who came out to the event to enjoy fast-paced poker and support Urban Prep Academies, helping to raise $100,000 for the schools. 

By the end of the evening, only nine players remained to compete for a piece of a prize pool valued at over $10,000. Only one Celebrity Bounty, Ameet Sachdev, made it to the final table. He was dramatically knockedout when his full-house was beaten by Karl Sederberg’s quads on the river.

This year, hosts Richard Roeper, Alexi Giannoulias, Chris Zorich and Urban Prep founder and CEO Tim King are back on the scene to keep the festivities lively. In addition to the Texas Hold ‘Em tourney, guests enjoyed delicious food and plentiful drinks.
