Every year the Black Friday event is the largest charity poker event in the Chicagoland area.  The $20 Early Bird had over 442 players, with a first place prize worth $1800! This was also the first year of the Black Friday Early Bird Trophy, which will be a staple going forward for our biggest event of the year.  Thank you to all our supporting charities, volunteers and poker players who helped make this such a great event.

This Thanksgiving weekend was the cumulation of the inaugural CSOP Winter Classic, with 15 side events over 12 events, and a two day Main Event that ended with 102 entrants, the Winter Classic was a huge success and is here to stay.  If you want more information on the Chicago Series of Poker Winter Classic please go to www.ccg.poker/wintercsop  You can see all of the events, including structure sheets and the final points list.  Remember for every CSOP series event the hosting charities and CCG give away $1,000’s of dollars to promote their events.  Just this past Winter CSOP over 13 FREE seats were given away for the Winter MAIN EVENT.  That is over $5,000 added to the prize pool just for playing charity poker with CCG.
