This sounds like a great tournament to be a part of and i am envious of anyone playing in this. Mel Gibson has always been one of my favourite actors and it would be a pleasure to meet him

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.

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...
