    Jerry Azumah knew when to walk away from football, but does he know when to hold 'em and fold 'em?

    Former Chicago Bears Pro Bowl player Jerry Azumah returns to the spotlight May 13 with a Texas Hold'em Poker fund-raiser.

    The event will be held at the Hotel Sax Chicago from 5:30 – 11 p.m.

    Not surprisingly, there will be plenty of Bears in the house, including Lance Briggs and Brian Urlacher.

    Other tables will be available, including blackjack, roulette, and craps.

    Tickets are $350 for players and $75 for spectators.

    The event raises funds for Azumah's non-profit organization ASAP (Azumah Student Assistance Program), with proceeds going toward the scholarship program at the Miguel Schools Chicago.
