Tonight CheckRayz will be playing out a money added poker tournament at Noble Poker. Buy-in for this event is $2+.20. $25 is added to the prize pool. For those of you who need to do so, feel free to use this link to download the Noble Poker Poker Room Software. As always, CheckRayz Tournament Leaderboard Points will be on the line.

CheckRayz is hosting a Tuesday night tournament every week in August. Each week, both the buy-in and the money added will increase. Next Tuesday, the CheckRayz Noble Poker tournament will be $3+.30 with $50 added to the prize pool. Following that will be a $4+.40 with $75 added to the prize pool. Finally, we’ll hold a $5+.50 with $100 added to the prize pool.

Depending on how well the Tuesday time slot works, this may be our regular thing at Noble Poker. I’m liking how well the regular BBB Thursdays work with the Shark Poker Tour, and it sounds as if the Vet’s Series is also catching on. For that reason, I’d like to maintain some consistency with our CheckRayz events. As always, feedback is welcome.

I’m familiar with none of the remaining players beyond what I have read. I do have to now say that I am pulling for David Einhorn to win the WSOP Main event. He’s substantially in the money. Knowing this, he still announces a decision that he’s donating his entire winnings to a charity, specifically the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Disease. I’m not knocking anyone who “gives” or “pledges” money, however, it’s one thing for someone to go in there thinking “if I win, I’ll donate x,” and the event’s not even begun - one not knowing if they‘re going to cash, for that matter. It’s another entirely different creature for one to pledge the entire amount KNOWING they’re getting paid. I am Tippin my mug to ya David!
