Dennis Phillips Has Arrived in Chicago

A Member of 2008's WSOP Main Event "November 9"

We Are At Near Capacity



As of this writing there are only 3 seats remaining in the TV Tournament, so we will be at the 200 player capacity. If you haven't registered yet, but think you do want to play, you can still get in. At 45 minutes prior to the start of the event, if a pre-registered player has not checked in, or is not in line to check in, the seat will be given to a Player on the Alternate List. So, get your name on that list by pre-registering.

It is no surprise that this tournament has attracted the best Poker players Chicago has to offer. So if you are a serious Poker Player, you need to be in this tournament.

Not only do you have a chance to compete on Television playing along side celebrities and poker professionals at the season finale of Windy City Poker Championship, but we are going to give our players the opportunity to attend a one-time only poker training session with Poker Professional/Media Personality and WSOP Academy Instructor, Bernard Lee, on Friday December 18th at 3:30pm.

As a Holiday gift to our players who attend, Main Event Charity Games will cover more than half of the cost for the training session (a $195 per person value).

For the discounted rate of only $85, players will attend the training session which will last almost 2 hours and includes a Turbo Sit-N-Go tournament after your session with Bernard Lee. The first place winner will earn $85 (cost of the session). Second and Third place contestants will win a copy of Bernard Lee's poker book, The Final Table.

During the session, Bernard Lee will go over important Poker strategy and situations including the dreaded middle level stages where most players get knocked out of tournaments. He will also talk about danger hands and final table strategy, and answer any questions you may have.

This event is limited to the first 15 players who sign up and pay*. Be sure to reserve your seat today by registering and paying online. You must pay in advance for this training session. It is non-refundable.
