Poker players got the chance to show their charitable side in Dublin earlier this week and responded admirably by raising €20,000 for an Irish homelessness charity.
Friday's PaddyPower Poker for the Homeless March Madness freezeout event attracted 97 players with 104 people buying in to Sunday's team tournament. The field included former World Snooker Champion Ken Doherty, Irish rugby legend Reggie Corrigan and champion boxers Michael Carruth and Jim Rock.UKIPT Galway winner and ambassador for the fundraising poker festival Padraig Parkinson said, "We'll probably double last year's total of EUR 10,000 which, in the current economic climate, shows that Irish poker players have real heart. “Thanks to everyone who played, worked at, supported, and donated to the fundraising effort. With some donations still to come in, we're confident we'll hit around EUR 20,000 for the weekend and will publish the accounts online just after the Irish Open." Congratulations to all who helped this very worthy cause.
