Poker for charity
    #4655137 - 09/13/05 03:20 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Ok so i have been working on this idea i had about hosting a NL hold'm tournament for charity to help out down in NO.  i have held tournaments in the past but none as big as i want to do this time. i was thinking of a buy-in between $30-$50 and a % of the big pot going to a charity that is helping down south.  then the rest going towards payouts for the winners.  i am hoping to be able to get a room for free since it will be a charity event but I'm not sure that will happen.  but i think if everyone payed a $5 entry fee that would cover for the room/chairs/chips we would need.  also any food/drink profit could go towards the charity also.  i guess i am posting this hear to see if you guys have any ideas to add or what charity to donate to.  also if any of you are in the Chicago land area and want to play or know of a place we can play/get chips/chairs/tables just let me know in this thread.  also if you would be interested in working in the staff part of it all.  i dunno, let me know. :thumbup:

fuck giving it to someone.... i suggest using all the money and buy a shit load of food like canned food or something and drop it all off where the poor/black people are staying...

or else theyll take all your money you earned and give it to one person to "start their life back up" and end up buying a nice plasma tv or something...

Wouldn't you need a gambling license to run something like this? I wouldn't suggest making it known to whatever hotel/motel/wherever you decide to have it that you are holding an illegal poker tournament.

I'm pretty sure you can find decent chip-sets at Wal-Mart. My brother has a professional chip-set. However for a big tournament you'd probably need quite a few boxes.
