The Smart Bet Charity Poker Tournaments were founded by a group of dedicated entrepreneurs who have been getting together regularly since 2004 to network and discuss the entrepreneurial climate in the city of Chicago.
We started Smart Bet to give back to the community and set a mission to assist in urban education in technology and entrepreneurship. All proceeds from the event are donated to charities supporting our mission. Because we want to give as much as possible to the charities, there are no prizes. But you will be immortalized when your name goes on the Smart Bet winner's trophy.
