The Early Bird is Central Illinois’ best bet in charity poker. The low buy in is great for building bankrolls, testing out new game theory or just a great poker tournament at a great cost. Where else can you put in $20 and have better odds on your money??? 

What is the Early Bird? The early bird poker tournament is the longest running tournament in the Chicago land area, and it is high time we bring it down to our central Illinois poker players. 

Where can I play? The Early Bird will now be offered at every CICG poker event in Central Illinois at the start of the event (2pm). 

Go to our Upcoming Events page to see where the next Early Bird will be.
