Structured like a Vegas- style tournament, sponsors purchase a poker table for 10 players. Each player receives $4,000 in chips to begin tournament play. Buy-ins are available throughout the night to stay in the tournament. Buy-ins start at $50 and increase throughout the night. All proceeds from buy-ins throughout the night go directly to YES Prep. If you don’t proceed to the semifinals, craps tables are available all night for $45
