Tomorrow! Thursday, December 1st, Urban Prep Academies will be hosting its 10th 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.
There was additional pressure for the eight players who made it to the tournament’s final table, which was broadcast on the web. They battled tirelessly for a piece of the prize pool valued at over $10,000. When the smoke cleared, AcesUP! 2015 champion Scott Dummler was the last man standing, claiming the coveted “ChampionCHIP.” In a show of tremendous class and generousity, Scott donated a portion of his winnings back to Urban Prep. Thanks to all of our players, spectators and sponsors for going “all-in” to support Urban Prep!
