March Mayhem, an exciting new Parent Talk event, is coming to Needham on Saturday, March 21st! We’ve been getting a lot of questions about this event so the following FAQ has been put together.
What exactly is March Mayhem?
This event is a Texas Hold ‘Em style poker tournament and so much more. Several large screen TVs will be setup around the venue so that you can keep track of what’s happening in the big tournament games. You can also try your luck at our March Mayhem Raffle. Five raffle tickets will be included with your event registration fee and additional tickets will be available for purchase that evening. There will also be a cash bar available and some of our sponsors will be on site. J. Hilburn will be taking measurements for suits and displaying their clothing. If you want, you’ll be able to order a custom tailored suit, sport jacket, or shirt on the spot! Rooster’s Men’s Grooming Center will be there offering hot towels, neck trims, and beard/mustache shaping as well. Even if you don’t last very long in the poker tournament, you’ll want to stick around.

Do I need to know how to play poker?
Absolutely not! This poker tournament is for players of all skill level from beginner to experienced. Plus, this is a tournament event. So, you simply pay your entry fee and you will be given chips to play with. There will be no cash betting at the tables.
Bernard Lee, a professional poker player with more than $2 million in career tournament earnings, will be providing a 30-minute seminar on the basics of No Limit Texas Hold’em from 6:30 – 7:00. In addition, our friendly dealers will guide you through the game and help answer any questions you might have during the game.
Who can play?
Anyone over the age of 21 is welcome to play in the tournament and the event is open to all regardless of Parent Talk membership status. So feel free to bring all your friends and your poker buddies. We welcome players of all skill levels as well. To register in advance click here.
How much does it cost to play?
The registration fee is $65 in advance and $75 if purchased at the door. There will be no out of pocket betting at the poker table so the maximum loss you might incur playing is limited to your entry fee. Your registration fee also includes 5 raffle tickets. Additional raffle tickets will be sold at the event in groups of 5 tickets for $15. To register in advance click here.
