Windy City Poker Championship

Hello Everyone! So with Illinois now in Phase 4 WCPC will host its first event on Saturday July 11th @ 9120 w 191st Street Mokena - Velocity All Sports.
 
We will have a max of 7 tables will be in play that will be 6 handed max and include cash games, SNG's, and 3 table tournament tables. The determination of location occupancy and or space between tables with safe minimum distance will determine the format of each event.
 
All of the below information is subject to change and or adjustments based on the poker industry standards applied elswhere that we may duplicate or add to our events but here is the plan we currently have in place.
 
50 player group max at any given point in our designated room(s) - Events will be structured to allow for multiple options during day for players to participate as opposed to just open registration. 6 player max allows for 7 tables to operate with (2) for SNG's (3) for Tournaments and (2) for cash games with one of the SNG tables being either cash or tournament as needed. We will follow examples from the Event Industry and Poker Industry and adjust as needed for a more careful opening to ensure we stay open as long as we can.
 
We have new formats and structures for our events that are available in person and on our website so be sure to check them out while we workout the best tournament formats to offer during phase 4!
 
THERE WILL BE NO PRE-REGISTRATION FOR ANY TOURNAMENT TABLES OR SNG'S. THIS WILL BE JUST LIKE YOU WOULD EXPECT AT A CASINO WHERE YOU MUST ARRIVE AND PAY TO PARTICIPATE WHEN SEATS ARE AVAILABLE!
