1. Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please contact Rachel Lee at rachel@icehouserooftop.com with questions regarding the event.

2. What is the refund policy?
All ticket sales are final.

3. If I do a Table Buyout, will my eight guests and I sit together at the event?
The Chips Charity Poker Tournament is done in traditional poker tournament style where each guest draws a table number as they enter the event, dictating where they will begin the tournament.
Not only does this guarantee fair play, but it also keeps you and your guests from knocking each other out at the very beginning of the tournament. If you purchase a table and have strong objections to drawing numbers for the tournament, please contact Rachel Lee at rachel@icehouserooftop.com so we may accommodate your group.
