Take some time out after that seventh inning strech, and come join the home team in the dugout for some Texas Hold 'Em!  It's almost time for The Anthrocon 2017 Charity Poker Tournament and you're up to bat!  It's our fifth year so let's try to knock this one out of the park!

Anthrocon's charity for this year is the Hope Haven Farm Sanctuary!  Their mission statement is to rescue pigs, sheep, poultry, and other neglected animals, who have been surrendered at local animal shelters, confiscated by local humane agents, or saved from factory farms.  They provide comfortable housing to live out their lives with food and companionship with others of their own kind, and also receive endless love and affection from the human components of the sanctuary!  Please visit their website at hopehavenfarm.org and donate, if not by participation of the ACPT, then by direct donation at their charity table in the Dealer's Room throughout the weekend!

A brief explanation of the rules is below; if you have any questions, please contact me via DM or post your questions in the comments.  The Anthrocon 2017 Charity Poker Tournament is a No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em tournament held on Friday, 30 June, at 3:00pm in DLCC 413-415.  The registration period is from 2:00pm - 3:00pm in the same room.  Buy-ins for this tournament are $20, and re-buys are available for $10 until the end of the first break.  All buy-ins and re-buys are considered dontations and will be taken by a charity official prior and during the tournament.  Simple donations to the charity will also be accepted at this time.  Introductions and a complete explanation of rules will be given prior to the start of the tournament and will be enforced by the ACPT Tournament Director, Syaoran.  Prize support for this tournament is still being considered; if you have a donation that you wish to give as part of the prize support, please contact turtyl, ACPT Tournament Coordinator.

I can donate a super amazing hug. 

Like seriously. Running start and everything. And an alternative if there are health concerns would be a super awesome high five.

My favorite part of the poker tournament is that people really don't take themselves too seriously.

Every player knows that this event is for charity! Whenever someone lost all their chips and bowed out last year, the entire room would give them a round of applause.

I've met some really great people at this panel, and that's the value I find from donating the reasonable entry fee. Whether you're a SHARK or a FISH (beginner), the Anthrocon Charity Poker Tournament is a great time!
