Poker Night at Mac's Game Room is held every three to four weeks. This includes a tournament and a mixed side game. Every poker night, a different charity is selected and players are required to make a contribution to participate in the tournament. Hundreds & hundreds of players have taken their shot at a tournament championship over the years. Two to three major tournaments are (sometimes?) held each year. The Cup Championships offer a double starting stack tournament with a prestigious Cup trophy awarded to the winner.
For the first time in over two years, a Cup Championship was held on Sunday May 26th. The tournament drew 19 players and Jeff Jeremiah emerged victorious for his first PN@MGR title. Mike Sestrich, Jamie Loflin, and Dave McPherson finished 2nd thru 4th. Mike, coming off a 1st place chop in the last tourney, moved into first for the Player of the Year race. Jeff's win moved him right into 2nd place. $401 was raised for the Make a Wish Foundation (wish.org). This pushed the total amount donated to charities in the history of PN@MGR to over $50.000! Big thanks to everyone who has played and helped contribute to that milestone.
The next poker night will be Friday Jun 21st at 8:00. The charity for this night will be Jesse's House.
