CSOP Main Event High Hand Giveaway

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 10 Week long Chicago Series of Poker (CSOP) Points list.  We had one heck of a race, with the top positions bouncing up and down all the way until the last tournament.  The final table of the last CSOP Event held six players who were in the top 15 on the points list needing a cash in the Stimulus to win their way into or secure their spot in the top 10 and a FREE Seat into the $550 CSOP Main Event.  

At the final table of the final CSOP Event, with a three way all in hand of Aces, Queens and Ace King we had our final points list (Aces held up BTW!):


1 Parm Soni 580
2 Dave Lyons 505
3 Audrius Macenis 350
4 Ziggy 315
5 Bryan Skreens 300
6 Jennifer Ramero 285
7 Mario Dominguez 260
8 Andrew Zeus 260
9 Todd S. 235
10 Josephine Santos 230

Because we have had such great turn outs for the CSOP Events, the hosting charities and Chicago Charitable Games are going to add one more FREE seat into the MIX.  The top 10 players have all earned a FREE Seat into the $550 CSOP Main Event this weekend (8/19-8/21).  We are also going to host a FREE ROLL Tournament for the players ranked 11th through 20th for one free seat.  The second chance free roll will take place Friday at 6pm at the MAX.  Players can only qualify for the second chance free roll if they are in position 11-20.  No exceptions will be made.  Please show an ID at the bank to register for this event.  All seats will be blinded off from the beginning of the tournament for late players… so please do not be late.

For those of you who are not in the CSOP $550 Main Event already, remember that we will have $120 Satellite Tournaments into the CSOP Main Event starting Friday at 2pm, and running all weekend up until the close of registration of the Main Event.  Good Luck to everyone, and see you all this weekend for the conclusion of the CSOP!

Thank you,
