The snow just does NOT want to quit!!! Not to worry...we had a great turnout at the VFW on February 8th for another Windy City Poker Championship charity poker event!
The noon $50 Deep Stack tournament ended up with 41 entries creating a prize pool of $1,680. This tournament starts with 20,000 in chips with a slow escalating structure that gives players maximum play!
Mother Nature was aggressive this weekend as she dumped several inches of snow throughout the south burbs of Chicago. Luckily however that did not stop players from coming out to play in the charity events this weekend both in Tinley Park and Homer Glen Illinois.
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.
