Jacob Zalewski Charity Tourney This Weekend

Go All-in for CP

by , Dec 9, 2009 | 6:58 pm

The charity poker season here in Vegas is in full holiday swing. And one of the bigger tournaments (celebrity-wise) is this Saturday — the second annual All In for CP at the Hard Rock. (More info here via Facebook.)

It has a $550 buy-in (with $200 rebuys through the first hour). Early RSVPs include the likes of Doyle Brunson and the usual crew of high-stakes Las Vegas charity-circuit rounders, along with Phil Laak, Sam Simon, Jennifer Tilly, and others. Here’s a video invitation from Tilly, with more details about the tournament itself.

This event is put on by everybody’s favorite omnipresent scooter-rider at the WSOP, Jacob Zalewski, and raises money for his One Step Closer Foundation’s fight to make life easier for Cerebral Palsey sufferers like Terrance, featured in the video below:

    I’ve heard about this tournament from a lot of different sources, but this is the first time that someone has said that CP stands for Cerebral Palsy. That was nagging the heck out of me — thanks!

    Most announcements about charity poker tournaments focus too much attention on who is playing and too little on telling me about the charity itself. People often think the word “charity” is enough — it isn’t.
