Our Games are Heating Up!

More Events With More Action Than Ever Before!

 

    

Main Event Charity Games will be increasing the number of events to include the North and Northwest Suburbs in the very, very near future. It all starts with this coming Saturday at Tutto Italiano. The cash games at Tutto's have been known to be extremely "active". Get in on the action! $.50-$1, $1-$2 and $2-$5.

Our cash games have grown dramatically over the last couple of months, and will continue to grow. Our Early Bird tournament has enjoyed a steady increase of players with every event.

Even our Blackjack game has enjoyed an increase in players. The last event had a waiting list for a seat. And why wouldn't it? We have the best Player friendly blackjack rules of any Charity Poker room. 

We have been at the fore front in offering players a variety of games. On Saturday, February 20th we will be offering a 1/2 Hold Em and 1/2 Omaha tournament:

2:00 Hold Em Tournament ($40):
15 Minute Blinds
4000 Starting Chips + 1000 Add On

BuyIn ($25) + Entry Fee ($10) + Add On ($5)

7:00 1/2 Hold Em and 1/2 Omaha Tournament ($100):
20 Minute Blinds
12
000 Starting Chips + 3000 Add On
BuyIn ($80) + Entry Fee ($15) + Add On ($5)

Does Your Card Room Let Players Shuffle Cards?

Security is Our Number One Focus!

 

Does your card room let players shuffle a second deck in order to add speed to the game? How honest and secure do you suppose the game is? How many casino poker rooms do you know that allow players to touch cards other than the cards they are dealt? You won't find any that allow it and there's a reason why you won't.

 

The truth is, given the opportunity, there's will always be some players who will try to make up for their lack of skill by giving themselves an edge by marking cards or removing a card or two from the game. Do you think this can't happen because a player at the table will see them?  Think again. The internet is full of "slight of hand" stories explaining how this can easily be done, even when someone appears to be watching.

This is why you will NEVER see a player handling the deck at Main Event Charity Games. Our charities take on the added expense of using poker tables with built-in Card Shufflers to make sure that security is never compromised in order to add speed to the games. We are the ONLY charity poker room in ChicagoLand that uses Card Shufflers to add both speed and ensure players are sitting in an  honest game.
