Subject: You can help Wil Wheaton and PokerStars help Katrina victims
Author: Lee Jones
Hi folks -
Many people have contacted us at PokerStars and said "How can we help Katrina victims?"
One of the people who contacted us was Wil Wheaton, a member of Team PokerStars. Wil wanted to put on a tournament to raise money. Quoting Ernie Banks, we said, "Let's play two!"
Monday, Sept. 12th at 9:30 PM Eastern Time : $5+0 NLH
Wednesday, Sept. 14th at 9:30 PM Eastern Time: $20+0 NLH (no rebuys)
$.01 (yes, one penny) of each buyin and rebuy is going to the prize pool. The rest will be matched 100% by PokerStars and sent to the American Red Cross.
PokerStars and Wil Wheaton will also be providing cool prizes for the final table finishers.
You can follow the details at the Brad Willis's PokerStars blog:
And if those dates are bad for you - well, go ahead and register anyway. Those people in Louisiana and Mississippi need your help.
Expect to see the tournaments deployed in the next hour or so in the Special section of the PokerStars tournament lobby.
Thank you all for letting us be part of this.
