Texas Hold 'Em on hold

The Greater Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce Aces and Amateur Texas Hold 'Em Tournament has been rescheduled for Friday, Oct. 13.

The idea is "outside the box" from the typical chamber guest speaker luncheon, but that is exactly what the chamber wants, said Jenifer Furda, the Chamber's vice president of events.

"We wanted to attract the unusual suspects, younger business people and people that we typically wouldn't get to go to a business lunch," Furda said. "It is still a networking opportunity, because that is number one what the chamber is about, but it is in a fun way that is just a little different."

Facilitated by Deuces Wild, the event allows players to participate in tournaments based on skill levels. Lessons will be available for those who are new to the game or just need to brush up. Players will not win anything at the end of the event, just have a good time and a networking opportunity, the Chamber said.

Non Tournament Players: $15 (includes networking, 500 chips, beverages, food and door prizes); Amateur Tournament: $25 (includes networking, 1,000 chips, beverages, food and door prizes and 1 entry into the tournament); Ace's Tournament: $25 (includes networking, 2,000 chips, beverages, food and door prizes and 1 entry into the tournament). If you are not a Texas Hold'em player that is OK you can learn to play craps, blackjack, poker and roulette.

For information, call or e-mail Jen Furda, 575-4313.
