hats of to poker pros and other dudes involved in this great act of giving children new decks of cards and sets of poker chips. there's nothing like growing your customer from the young age. i can smell pokerstars has something to do with this fantastic idea. did they include booze in the package?

Nope, but I cannot really tell who's "great" idea was to give the kids Sports Illustrated issues either.

This guy is not someone I can remember ever seeing play poker but well done to him for at least taking the time to give something back.I am sure this will be greatly appreciated by the kids who got a holiday.

Whoever this guy is he should be seen as setting a very good example to the rest of the sporting world, like football and soccer, with players who make millions of dollars playing games yet don't appear anywhere near the parapet of charity donations.

I know for a fact a LOT of football players do a lot for charity and donate to charity.

It just isn't broadcast because either it doesn't sell newspapers, players don't want it advertised or a combination of both

why this disgusting world finds ok those individuals that make wide announcements about how good they are?! otherwise what is the purpose of spreading news of such basic gesture, other than people in your circles look at you with different eyes? And no, the purpose is not to take example, people usually applaud the gesture and move on. when larger organisations are involved is necessary to hit the news so people can contribute. there are more individuals that gives to charity from a humane instinct, just that they don't let the world know. f**k this worlds stereotypes

edit: this is actually like those youtubers that helps homeless guys in America, only to film the whole process and put on youtube for views and to show what great persons they are. this article is the same, just at a larger scale. be quiet about it or f**k off

A nice thing to do...but we dont always have to brag at the things we give out to people in need. Sometimes its done for that extra publicity. However a good gesture i guess

Doing nice gestures is equal to good karma and that's what Lee needs as he's always unlucky on the felt and always close to achieve huge success so good luck Bernard.
