Hey Vancouver! Tickets are selling now for the ABCOM All-In Charity Poker Showdown. It’s happening next Thursday, after work, at Smiley’s Public House at 911 West Pender Street. Registration is from 5pm-6pm, then the tournament begins.
I’m a terrible gambler and have little to no attention span, so I won’t be participating (trust me, it’s for the best). But if you want to throw down, you’ll need to register online no later than Monday, Sept. 19th.
For those of you who know what you’re doing, here are the details:
- No Limit Texas Hold’em with professional dealers.
- Over $2,500 in prizes to be won at the final table.
- 1st place – An all paid trip for 2 to Las Vegas courtesy of ABCOM and Flight Centre!
- Buy-in is $65 per person, includes admission, buy-in & first drink.
- One additional re-buy/add-on allowed per player within the first hour – $50 (I have no idea what that means)
And for those of you who DON’T know what you’re doing, pop by anyway. According to the organizers, this is a social networking event – spectators and minglers welcome. Non-players are asked to pay $15.00, which will cover admission and your first drink. The proceeds for this event will be donated to both NABS and ABCOM, two very important charities in our industry.
