Poker players got to show their charitable side in Dublin earlier this month as the Poker for the Homeless fund raising organisation hosted a special tournament.
The event at the Irish capital's Jackpot Club attracted a field of 50 runners with 20% of the €5,000 prize pool going to charity. The tournament was eventually won by Bluff Europe regular Nicky Power who pocketed €1,300 after taking the honours for the second time. Ambassador for the event Padraig Parkinson, said, “What a success! Despite being so close to the Irish Open and perhaps not as widely promoted as previous events we beat the 2010 total, purely by accident in the middle of the biggest recession we’ve ever seen. That says so much about the Irish poker community.“Brother Kevin at the Capuchin Day Centre will use the money wisely to make sure those worse off than us don’t go hungry.“There are way too many people to thank individually. Everyone who gave of their time and money knows exactly who they are and they now we know. A special thanks to Paddy Power Poker for their continuing support in sponsoring the event and we can’t wait until we can do it all again.”Poker For The Homeless has raised almost €250,000 in the last seven years for homeless charities across Ireland.
