It's A Good Thing: Poker For A Cause

Do a good thing this weekend.

here's the write up for our charity event this saturday directly ripped off from Poker Filipinas by yours truly ;)

For those of you who don't know, I and a number of other characters that you know are partners in a company called Ace Technologies, a Philippine company operating card rooms in this wonderful land of ours. We currently operate three rooms - The Metro Card Club in Pasig City, Runners Card Club at the San Lazaro Leisure Park in Carmona Cavite, and the Metro Madayaw Card Room at the Casino Filipino in Davao.

A major component of our corporate mandate is to educate, inform and to the extent we can, uplift certain segments of the community by promoting poker as sport, entertainment, and fund raising mechanism for deserving charities.

Last March 3rd, we ran a great charity event at the Robinsons Galleria in Pasig, with the beneficiary being the Sinag Kalinga Foundation, a charity providing care, love and dignity to the destitute aged folks among us. During that event, you helped us raise roughly P140,000 for the foundation. That money went a long way.

It was a good thing.

This Saturday September 22, we are hosting a charity event for the Power Foundation Inc., a Pasig City based charity providing safe havens, care and rehabilitation for women and children in abusive life situations. P500 buy, with multi rebuys until level 4.

We'll be playing for sponsored prizes, here's the list:

Quote of the Day

  • The best poker I've ever played has always entailed peace. A relaxed comfort. Eyes open, ears open, radar up. Absorbing my opponent's every message. Taking them as they come. Not mixing what those messages are with what I want them to be. It's like an aerial view. A view from above the myriad luck-dependent reactions of those many people who never gain such a peace. And when you gain that view, that peace - when you'd rather have the truth, no matter how disappointing, over a false hope, no matter how desirable - then you're a player. The hand you're on slips into a stream of thousands of other hands, no one of which, because of your lofty view, seems unduly important, no false fearful emotions rise within you. When you gain the peace of lofty perspective, you're a player, and when you're a player, you're free.- from "King of a Small World" by Rick Benett
