A few pics from the annual Aces Up! tournament, held at the Wit Hotel in Chicago last week. We raised more than $100,000 for the Urban Prep academies.
Your hosts for the evening: Ill. State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias, Urban Prep’s Tim King, RR, and former Chicago Bear and Notre Damer Chris Zorich.
Former Chicago Bear (and avid poker player) Jerry Azumah apparently believes if you sing to your cards, they’ll improve…
After knocking a guy out of the tournament, I tell him, “Good game, you played well, I got lucky, yada yada yada…”
I don’t know what’s happening here, but I’m fairly certain it’s not a standard part of any Hold ‘em tournament.
With Susan Carlson of CBS-2 and Natalie Martinez of NBC-5.
Illinois State Treasurer (and U.S. Senate candidate) Alexi Giannoulias.
