To outsiders the game of poker might not look like the friendliest community in the world, but the reality is that people in the game are some of the most generous in the world.
Despite spending most of their life trying to take other people's money, poker players are always keen to do something for charity and thanks to a new project they can pledge their support in a more effective way.Raising for Effective Giving (REG) was recently set up by a small team of poker pros with the aim of thinking "rationally" about which charities are most in need of support. Moreover, the group aims to provide "effective giving" by maximising the EV of each donation through research, analysis and discussions with industry experts and think tanks.The players that are a part of REG include Igor Kurganov, Philipp Gruissem and Liv Boeree and they are currently looking for members to donate 2% of their gross quarterly poker winnings to the project.For more information, or to sign up and donate, visit Reg-Charity.orgImage courtesy of REG Charity.
