Make-a-Wish Poker Tournament to be Held at the Diamond Jim

It always makes the day a bit brighter when we hear some news about a new poker charity tournament, probably because it eases the guilt of playing with money a bit and channels it into a good cause. So, if you fancy doing your good deed for the day, why not consider joining the Make-a-Wish Poker Tournament which will be held on Saturday, May 22th at the Diamond Jim Casino on California?

For a Good Cause

It’s very heartwarming to know that fun and helping don’t have to be exclusive of each other.  They can go hand in hand if you just know where to look and the poker industry, as it seems, is a very good place to start. What could be better than playing poker and having the proceeds go to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, one of the most famous non-profit organizations in the world? This foundation, if you still don’t know, specializes in granting the ‘wishes’ of children from age two and a half to eighteen. Usually, the children who receive aid from this foundation have life-threatening medical conditions but have no money for the treatment. This tournament is your chance to ‘grant the wish’ of four children who are awaiting a sponsor. Basically, all you need to do is to join the Make-a-Wish Tournament which has a very affordable buy-in of $50.00.

The atmosphere of the whole tournament will be pretty much friendly rather than competitive because of its charitable nature. However, should you wish to rebuy into the tournament, you will have the opportunity to do so within the first one hour and thirty minutes.

A Chance to Beat the Champ

Also, if you really do love the competition, then this is one tournament that you should definitely not miss. After all, what could be better than beating a champion at his own game? Jerry Yang, World Champion of Poker 2007, will be playing at this no-limit hold’em tournament. All the players will have the opportunity to beat Yang, and anyone who manages to do so will take home a nifty bonus. Yang will be going around the tables, challenging all the players so that everybody will have their chance. According to the organizers of the tournament, Yang will probably visit over 150 tables in all. Celebrities and Poker Pros are also expected to appear at the event, showing their full support for the poker industry and especially for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
