Monday, 16 March 2009

Reno’s Grand Sierra Resort played host to the Jennifer Harman Charity Poker Tournament for America’s National Kidney Foundation over the weekend. Around $111K was raised from the $200 buy in event which was boosted by over 1000 $50 rebuys.

William Roberts beat the 297-runner field, which included WSOP bracelet winners Lee Watkinson and Jeff Madsen, to claim the crystal trophy valued at $5,000 and a seat in the Reno World Poker Challenge.

A delighted Harman, who has had 2 kidney transplants herself said “This is the largest field of any charity event I've hosted. The outpouring of support exceeded any expectations. I can't thank the poker community enough for its generosity."
