Regular readers of these pages here at UK & Ireland PokerNews will possibly remember an article published in June regarding a celebrity charity poker tournament that was being held in Cardiff, Wales. That particular event was a roaring success and the same man, Nicky Piper, is hoping charitable poker players will once again turn out in their droves for the latest charity tournament that is hoping to raise crucial funds for the George Thomas Hospice Care charity.
The tournament is due to take place at 20:00 on Oct. 24 at the Grosvenor Casino in Atlantic Wharf, Cardiff and costs just £20 to enter. For those of you who prefer to play loosely in these sort of events, rebuys costing just £10 each are available for the first three levels of the tournament, and remember that all proceeds go towards this fantastic cause.
Along with being able to help the George Thomas Hospice Care team with their fundraising efforts, players will also be able to help themselves to a complimentary buffet and the eventual champion will be able to select a first place prize of £800 in cash or a seat to any GUKPT tournament of their choosing.
A number of celebrity players are listed to play, including Welsh comedian Owen Money and the British athlete Darren Campbell, making for a great atmosphere.
Should you wish to play in this tournament all you have to do is head to the Grosvenor Casino in Cardiff and purchase a £20 ticket, or call the casino and ask for Mike on 0290 468350.
