$55,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool *

Plans ARE Complete!


Plans are now complete for the final filming for Season 1 of the Windy City Poker Championship TV show [produced by Fallah Productions Inc.]. This is going to be a spectacular event, with a $55,000 guarantee prize pool. We expect this tournament to fill up, so pre-registering is very much encouraged. You don't have to make it to the Final Table to be filmed for the show. There will also be a Feature Table, introduced at the tournament for the first time, which will also be filmed. The tournament is scheduled for December 18th and 19th at the Irish American Heritage Center, on the Chicago North Side.


1. The tournament will span two days, allowing for plenty of poker to be played.

2. There will be a Feature Table during the tournament, with players being shuffled in and out at the discretion of Main Event Charity Games. [feature table rules and information will be provided prior to the event]. Now, you won't have to make it to the Final Table to show off your poker skills on TV*.

Between the Feature Table and Final Table footage, coverage could possibly span over three separate broadcasts* on Comcast SportsNet Chicago and
Bright House Sports Network.

Beginning with this Saturday's event at Tutto Italiano, there will  be SNG and MTT qualifiers enabling you to win a seat into this Final Windy City Poker Championship taping for Season #1.

We may also be sending update information out through regular mail, so if you haven't registered as a Player on the Main Event Charity Games website you should do so now so you don't miss any information. We will NOT share your information with anyone.

More information to follow.

* Guarantee is based on 200 player entrants. Subject to change

Poker Room Rules

Just a Reminder!


In an effort to run a safe, fun, honest and friendly environment that will provide the best experience to its players and staff, the Main Event Charity Games Charity Poker Room has adopted a zero tolerance on cheating.

This includes all forms of Player Collusion. All Floor Managers have been trained to look for players sitting at the same table, who may be working as a "team" to "squeeze" other players out of hands.  This IS a form of Player Collusion, which will not be tolerated.

Anyone who feels they are being victimized in this manner is encouraged to quietly bring it to the attention of the Floor Person on duty.
