HOW WE PARTICIPATE
MGCB provides rules for poker events. MBC Association is licensed to host charity poker events, in partnership with a rental poker room (Vision Lanes) and a facility supplier (Krazy Kopz). Charity volunteers must log cash, receive, count, distribute and redeem chips for players. The facility supplier provides the materials, including tables, chips and dealers, but cannot sell or redeem chips. Tournament poker and cash poker tables must comply with State rules and are open to the public.
