Saturday March 8th's charity poker event hosted by the Suburban Fellowship Club of Forest Park at the VFW was a great event with dozens of new players in attendance. The noon 20,000 chip deep stack tournament ran with 49 entries ($1,960 prize pool) and ended in a very profitable 4 way chop.
The noon event also featured a High Hand promotion which awarded a 32" HDTV to the winner. New player to the "Windy City Poker Tour" Jimbo Mihalovich held the high hand with Quad Kings and took home a Toshiba HDTV.
Later that evening the Windy City Poker League kicked off its first multi table event with 36 players. This monthly points league offers a great structure, food, drink, and competative action! Players start with 10,000 in chips and are given a slow structure with 30 minute blind levels.
The players were also treated to a spread of delicious food including pizza, burgers, french fries, sandwhiches and more. The 10 scheduled league events will run once a month and award points to those who make the final table. WCPL event #1 featured a $1,800 prize pool and paid the top 4 players. The winner of the first league event was Tijuan Wiggins...congratulations on your victory!
