Charity Series of Poker
Level 2 (50/100)
Total Entrants: 54
Along with the opportunity to donate to a great cause and a night of fun in store for all who enter, #swagbags are yet another fantastic reason for players to join the Charity Series of Poker. All players who enter tonight’s event will receive a #swagbag filled with goodies such as a Borgata t-shirt, a “Support The Kid” rubber bracelet, assorted candy, and CSOP stickers. The biggest hit of the #swagbag so far has been the sunglasses which nearly all players are wearing.

$100 + $20 + $100 Charity Series of Poker Turbo NLH
Level 1: Blinds 50/100
Today’s fourth trophy event of the day is a charity event to benefit Support the Kid, a non-profit 100% volunteer organization whose mission is to raise and distribute funds to help children fighting cancer. $100 from each player entering will go to the charity.
Players get 10,000 chips and levels are 15 minutes long. Late registration and unlimited re-entries are available until the start of level 9 (about 8:45pm).
There will be a $1,000 bonus for the chip leader at the end of the registration period and for the player with the most re-entries.
There was an open bar player party at Gypsy Bar before the tournament began, so everyone is already well ‘lubricated’ and ready for some fun! Play is underway!
The ninth Charity Series of Poker event is set to run today, Saturday January 28th, at 6:30pm and we expect another good time for a great cause at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
This year’s event will once again run the night before the Borgata Winter Open Main Event and will benefit Support the Kid, a non-profit 100% volunteer organization whose mission is to raise and distribute funds to help children fighting cancer. STK was created by Nicholas “The Kid” Wolber who lost his battle to cancer. The charity is dedicated to realizing Nick’s dream of helping kids with cancer and defeating this insidious disease.
$100 of each $220 buy-in to this unlimited re-entry tournament will go directly to Support the Kid to help Nick’s great cause. The tournament starts off at 6:30pm but the fun will start long before the cards are in the air.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa will be hosting a players’ party at Gypsy Bar from 4:30pm to 6pm with hors d’oeuvres and an open bar. After the party, players will head up to the event center for a fun time while raising money for the charity and playing for cash prizes.
There will be a $1,000 cash bonus to the player who re-enters the most times before registration closes. The chip leader at that time will also receive a $1,000 cash prize, so be ready to gamble!
We expect to see a lot of our friends in the tournament including big-name pros, poker fans, and plenty of stars from outside the poker world. We hope you can make it out and help us push the donations higher throughout the evening.
