Clic Sargent Charity Poker MTT
Charity poker tournament to raise some money for Clic Sargent, a charity that helps and looks after children and young people with cancer. http://www.clicsargent.org.uk/ I recently found out my girlfriends 2 year old nephew (Ellis) has liver cancer and has a 50/50 chance of beating it. His parents have said that any money raised should go to Clic Sargent to help both Ellis other young people that are suffering so unfairly. My girlfriend is going to do a half marathon so I thought with a little help from the Tiltbook community we could have our own fundraiser. I have been in touch with Pokerstars but they aren't allowed (or won't) set a specific MTT up for me so I'm going to try through the Pokerstars.com Home Games feature. The only problem is I can't split the money 50/50. So, my suggestion is, we can play a $10+$1 MTT and then everyone that enters can transfer me $10 to my Full Tilt or Pokerstars account which I will put straight to the charity fund. That way there is effectively a 50/50 split. Now I know this may sound a bit dodgy but its the only way round it! I have people that can vouch for me in the Tiltbook community for references. As I said before I will be putting $100 in to the charity fund and $100 into the MTT, so it is really $100 guarantee to start. Again, I can't add a guarantee in the Home Game feature but will add $50 to 1st, $30 to 2nd and $20 to 3rd when it finished and transfer it to the winners. I won't arrange the tournament for a Sunday for obvious reasons, what day/time would be popular with people? Even if you can't or don't want to play, you can still reg and know the money will be going to a great cause! I'll post updates here in the coming days...
