DFW Charity Poker (that doesn’t suck)

by , May 14, 2008 | 9:52 pm

If you’ve heard my permanent Wolfman Jack impression while listening to Beyond The Table, you might not be surprised to learn that my voice is not naturally this sexy. I had a little help from my friends. Actually, I had a LOT of help. Before the age of 6, I had undergone over 30something surgeries on my throat and vocal chords. Some of those were emergency surgeries to open my airway, and some were simply maintenance to avoid more emergencies. The end result would be a voice that only a mother could love. Well, her and a disproportionately large number of black women. Apparently, I sound like this guy. But unfortunately, they usually look like this girl, and never like my new chocolate crush, this girl.

The bottom line is that the good people at Cook Children’s Hospital saved my life more than once, and I couldn’t be more pleased to tell you about the Jeremy’s Friends Poker Tournament, coming up on Saturday, May 31st @ 6pm.

How’s this for quality charity poker – 1’st place wins a Main Event entry w/airfare and hotel! Runner up gets a phat entry into the upcoming $3,000,000 tournament at Winstar, which I hear is being televised. There won’t be much fight for 3rd to 9th place, as EVERYBODY else at the final table will win $440 Super Satellite entries for the same Winstar mega tournament. Not bad, guys! Too bad we all know that charity poker is rigged! 🙂

If you are in the North Texas area and would like to battle it out against me and a few other do-gooders, contact Jeremy’s Friends by emailing: jeremysfriendspoker@gmail.com

    For all the struggles poker is going through, it’s good to see the return of quality charity action in Texas.

    BTW, not important to others … but I really like your use of boldface. Will have to look into incorporating more of that into P 4.1.

    This event is going to be great!!! Jeremy’s Friends has raised almost 1.2 million dollars in the 12 years of its existence. Cook’s is planning on adding to their existing facility and will need support now more than ever!! They plan to name a room in the new facility for Jeremy. The current plan is to build a new rehabilitation and exercise room and it will be name Jeremy’s Gym. I can’t thank Karridy enough for all of his help and wisdom. It makes it even better knowing that we’re supporting the very place that was instrumental in Karridy being with us today. I hope it is ok to put my number on here…. if you need more info please call me direct @ 817-538-3541 and definitely send an email to the address in the article. I can send you all the info via email. We’re planning for over 100 players and as you can see we’re putting up some great prizes. Hopefully I’ll see a lot of you soon!!

    I would like to encourage everyone to participate in this tournament. As most of you who know me are aware my youngest son, Jake has muscular dystropy. Some of you may not know that Jake is married with two kids who are also afflicted with MD. Because of these illnesses my family and I have made numerous visits and spent many an uncomfortable night in the rooms at Cook’s Childrens Hospital. Our connection with Cook’s has been going on for over 21 years now. I cannot express in terms that would be adequate what this organization has meant to us. Jake has been there as little as a couple of hours for a doctor vistit, to a month long admission for a a collapsed lung. Every visit to Cook’s, regardless of the circumstances, has been a positive experience in regards to Jake and now his children’s care. If any of you degeneratet poker players are looking for an opportunity to move your karma balance towards the positive side then there is no better opportunity in my opinion. Jake and I will be there when the cards are in the air.

    I can’t wait to ante up for this one. Maybe I can bring Syesha, now that she’s been booted from Idol. If you have her number, shoot it this way. If you are my wife,… “come on… You know you’d hit that!”. Just kidding Syesha. I ain’t married. Seriously… Call me. I know you read Pokerati.
