Posted on Monday, September 04, 2017 by "T".
As Hurricane Harvey's incessant rainfall lessened over the weekend in Texas, we see operations being conducted both by government personnel and its citizens, and it's great to see that some of them are from the poker community. Ray Henson, a poker pro with four WSOP circuit rings, almost $2.5 million in tournament wins, and resident of Houston, was one of the citizen rescuers who, by boat, traver[...]   Read more » Poker Players pitching in to help out victims of Hurricane Harvey

The only one i know from that list is kevin hart.
What a number of followers he has Smile
I have watched a couple of his movies along with stand up comedy performances.
I believe he is losing his touch. At least the last stand up comedy he did,
was a fail for me. Dint even smile.

Yeah, until you see that one man wants to fly a family out to Vegas (of all places???), Kevin Hart lowballs a pledge (his children tuition to their private elementary schools probably costing more than this 50k he offered), and a poker clothing company which offers nothing on their own.
Seems like lot of selfpromoting going on here instead of 'help'...

This wa a good news, that poker pros with a lot of winning spend money for the people which lost her home after the hurricane. After this desaster it was important that a lot of people help them. Perhaps one of the big Casinos or poker siter create a benefit poker tourney.

Is a very beautiful thing when natural disasters happens people to help each other both financially and through workforce. With these disasters is not joking and governments should do more things for help people. Congratulations to all who help and those who risk their own lives to save people. These people are heroes for those they save and not only Worship

Hello my friends and fellow mobsters

This is a very good action that the poker players are trying to put up Worship Worship those actions reflect on the perception that the common people have about poker amd gambling

Hope that the money really gets to the people in real need and not to those that always take advantage of this situations

Stay cool and enjoy life

In such occasions the categorization doenst matter.
What if they were poker player, or soccer or tennis.
Doesnt make any difference at all, like it doesnt add a single thing to the game Smile
Same way you can find the occupation of all the helpers, and start praising them,
by profession Smile

Hey! Anyone who contributes to any such cause is a good egg a slot far as I am concerned. The needs of the media gurus to pigeon hole groups of people into recognisable groups is a factor that always gets played. It may help the image of the poker fraternity, alternatively it may damage it depending on how much they give, which is not what it should Ben about. The act of giving should be enough.

Whoever is donating money for the hurricane victims should keep some of his powder dry, as there is already at least one more hurricane under way, that may even top the last one for its destructive power.

Doyle Brunson, the godfather of poker, tweets that his nephew took 250 smoked brisket, 2000 lbs of chicken, smoked turkeys, and 120 pork loins and drove them to Houston. A gesture of goodwill. Doyle must be so proud of him!

You can be proud with no advertising such matters over the net and especially to the
so called social networks.
What are you trying to show there by posting this , about your nephew, relative, friend,
or whatever.
Does anything have to be public and shared?

Hurricane Harvey washed away the American dream. My deepest sympathy to the victims of this recent hurricane disaster, to those who have lost loved ones, and to those who have seen their homes and property destroyed.

Yes i too think it is very good to see poker players try to get some money for this tragic situation, everyone who is helping is very needed, and if poker players call their fans and this helps to get more money it is a very good thing for everyone.
