On July 3rd, the Charity Series of Poker will return for our fifth annual event benefiting Three Square Food Bank, Southern Nevada’s ONLY food bank. It will be held at the beautiful Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas where we’re honored to be a part of their PHamous Poker Series. We’d like to thank Planet Hollywood for sponsoring the event by running the tournament rake-free.
The festivities begin at 3:30pm in the London Club on “the Mezz” with a VIP reception that all tournament players are invited to attend. Attendees will be treated to an open bar with appetizers as we gear up to have a great time for an even greater cause. Guests who aren’t playing the tournament are welcome to join the reception for a $75 donation to the food bank.
The tournament will also be held in the London Club and will begin at 5pm. It is a no limit hold’em turbo with a buy-in of $300 and credit cards are accepted as well as cash. $100 rebuys and add-ons will be available during the first two hours of play and each player will have the opportunity to purchase 3 rebuys for the price of 2 at registration. First prize is $10,000 cash and there are $1,000 cash prizes to be awarded to the chip leader and player with the most rebuys after first break. Second through sixth place will receive great prizes like a $10,000 Ultimate Boat Racing Experience, tickets and meet-and-greet with Imagine Dragons, and more!
