Although registration is officially open until April 23, spots for Saturday's Gaymazing Poker Race 2015 are filling up quickly, so get your registration in as soon as possible if you want to get in on the fun! 

The Gaymazing Poker Race involves teams of four racing around to six different hutong bars from the original Great Leap location trying to get a full hand of poker dealt to them between 1.30 and 5pm. Cards will only be dealt from different bars across the city after correctly answering various trivia questions or completing the set challenges. There is also a certain amount of drinking involved (a different craft beer has to be consumed at each location until, in the organizers words, everyone is sufficiently inebriated). 

This year, prizes are more gaymazing (yes, I went there) than ever  think a keg of beer worth RMB 1,500. Registration also comes with a custom designed Plastered 8 T-shirt and a wristband.

To sign up, email [email protected]. Registration costs RMB 500 per team, and all proceeds go to an amazing cause: The Beijing LGBT Center.
