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. Three to four major tournaments are held each year. The Cup Championships offer a double starting stack tournament with a prestigious Cup trophy awarded to the winner.
