Talk about an opportunity to make money...
A charity poker tournament at Seminole Coconut Creek carries a pretty nice opportunity: $75,000 guaranteed prize money on an $85 buy-in.
The tournament at Stax Poker Lounge, which has Day 1D and Day 1E at noon on Friday and Saturday, also allows players to enter each day -- and they can then take their best stack into Day 2, which is on Sunday. The tournament, which would need about 200 players per day to make the guarantee, is running about half that, officials say. That's what poker players call an overlay.
Late news: Stax added yet another flight, at 7 p.m. Saturday -- so all us working people get a chance.
The tournament benefits Gilda's Club (which I wrote about last year) and the Pink Angels of the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, a group of women, many of them breast cancer survivors, with the mission of offering women the latest in education and awareness on the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle.
And the tournament is a prelude to their World Poker Tour series coming up.
