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.

I almost didnt recognize mel gibson in that photo Dont even remember when was the last time i saw a movie with him. This tournament is going to draw some attention, no doubt about that. I hope they can raise a big amount for the kids.
another good poker cause after the Big One for One Drop Invitational which also raised a huge amount of cash for the charity and also I'm glad to see Scotty on the circuit again as he's not often on it those last yrs...

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...

Well, charity is always just an excuse for these people to do something where tuckload of moneyheir publicist could create an article with their name stamped on with a positive light... Mel Gibson has truckload of money, could just give some of it away on will.

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.

Congratulations, this is a valid tournament to help and change the lives of these children forever, because it is not every day that you see it, and it will make an immense difference in the life of every person who receives it, because it will change the life forever and for the better, eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, congratulations
Nice this can be a really good tournament,.. I like it when famous tv actors play with real pro,s it can be soo mutch fun,.. Would be awesome iff Mel gibson would be on final table with ivey,..and Patrick,.. Ore Daniel negreanu ,...would be a lot off fun
I googled this tournament, but unfortunately haven't find the results of it. It would be interesting to know how good is Mel Gibson at poker tables. He seems like a clever man, and I'm sure he is able to show a good perfomance.
