Details

Come have fun playing Texas Hold'em no-limit with tournament rules for a great cause. Let's raise money needed to pay for our ongoing BLAST expenses. (As you know, BLAST doesn't charge membership dues, and we sponsor as many free events as humanly possible.) This is our eighth year of doing this FUNdraising poker tournament.

TIME
5pm: We'll start gathering at 5pm to socialize, eat, and get ready. Janis will give instructions at 5:45pm and everyone will then go to their assigned tables....... 6pm: TOURNAMENT PLAY STARTS AT 6:00 SHARP. If you arrive after 6pm, you can watch and hang out, but you won't be able to join a table in progress. The blinds will keep increasing at frequent intervals. The tournament is expected to end between 9-10pm.

PRIZES
You will be playing for prizes and bragging rights rather than cash. The top player will receive a little trophy (http://www.meetup.com/BLASTwpb/photos/5861282/).
