The WPT Foundation has raised more than $6 million for charities of all different shapes and sizes, which helped provide life-saving surgical care for children in need around the world. It sure is a moral, motivational and inspirational story.

its nice that they thinking about children and to take care about them!whatever they collect will help for those who dont have anything in life and for all of this player this amount isnt something and they can afford to pay it!keep going like that!

charity is just an excuse for those rich dudes to get away and do some gambling with their wives endorsements. they go like this: hey honey, tomorrow i will play some poker for a charitable cause, it's just a way to do some good for humanity... much better than: tomorrow i go to play some poker and drink vodka with some random dudes and hot ladies with no undies...

How about next time they dont announce that they are helping. Instead they will just simply help. No tv, no media, no fuzz... If only they could do something so selfless.
