Have you ever dreamed of playing poker on TV? Im sure we all have, here is your chance. I will be attending the April 4th game and probally will play in both tournaments. I have already reg for the 1st that day. WPT pros will be playing in the event with the most recognizable being TJ Clouttier. Buy in is 120 + 20 start with 8000 in chips for 10 more you get another 2000 in chips. Blind structure leaves room for good play starting at 50/100 and lasting 20 min a round. This is the link to view the games they also run cash games and sng's. http://www.maineventcharitygames.com/

yea i went to check out those rockfordcharitable games last week. just wanted to play a sng to c how it was for future refrance anf took it down. next im buying in for a muti (prob 100+20 buyin). well c how much time i got tho.

Ay phil, im going to check that out... i know ure on the southside, im more north so those rockford charitable games are closer to me (shiller park, des plaines, skokie, etc.) but nevertheless im going to look into that.

Id be fun meeting some1 from the forum in a live game, i know 1 member here (in person) and wouldnt mind taking money... i mean playing with others lol. anyway GL.

Went to the rockford charity game finally. Played the $1-$2 nl 9 handed table. The play was pretty loose for the most part. I bought in with $60, worked it up to $90 then my KK was beat by 1010 when they guy turned a set. There was a straddle and bunch of limpers so I pushed preflop and was called by one person.

I don't know how the guy made the call and so fcking fast, too. Kinda ridiculous, but I got up and walked away and that was that. Haha. I plan on going back soon. Very soon.
