Poker can sometimes seem like a brutal dog eat dog game where all the players are out to get each other. Sometimes, it’s all done in good fun, and sometimes it’s not, but when an opportunity comes to play poker for a good cause, you better not miss it. Good deeds are rare enough in this world, and good deeds which come with a load of fun are even rarer. This November 3, the Full Tilt Poker players Annie Duke and Howard Lederer, the resident Good Guys of Poker, will be holding a charity poker tournament at the Bicycle Casino in Bell Gardens, California.
The Fight against Injustice
Annie Duke and Howard Lederer are two people whom you can always expect to be at the forefront of a charitable endeavor such as this one. The poker tournament which they are setting up will benefit the Child Rescue Association, which is currently fighting to stop the illegal sale of children into sex trade. You’ll be surprised at how prevalent this crime is, both in Canada and the United States. The enormity of this problem has prompted the International Media Mogul Summer Redstone to collaborate with the two crusaders of poker in an effort to raise money for the Child Rescue Association’s cause.
Anyone and everyone will probably agree that this charity poker tournament will benefit a great cause. Those who care enough to support it can join in on the fun with a buy in of $200 + 40. You can be the lucky winner of a guitar autographed by Nick Hexum and Chris Carrabba. A free trip to Costa Rica is also up for grabs and several other prizes. It’s a great chance to not only help out but to win big and earn some nifty prizes.
Several big names in the poker industry have already signed up, such as Mike Sexton, Jan Fisher, Melissa Hayden, Alan Cunningham, Linda Johnson, Yosh Nakano, and much more. If you want a chance to meet these stars in person, then this could be your chance. Celebrities from the movie and the sports industry are also expected to join in. There will also be a special guest of honor, Dianna Donofrio Trigazi, who has been hailed as one of the biggest contributors to the poker industry, particularly her innovations at the WSOP and her introduction of the Legends of Poker Tournament.
