Holly City Charity Poker Challenge

I recently received an email from the North Charleston Coliseum and Performing Arts Center advertising the 1st Annual WTMA Holly City Charity Poker Challenge. Now when it comes to poker I'm not one to say no as I just recently won $100 in a 6 man tournament this past weekend. I think it's always good to give to charity if you can afford to but I'm not one to give someone $20 to play poker and not get something in return for the time it takes to play. That is basically what this tournament is, you give someone $20 so you can basically play for fun, who really wants to waste a whole days activities for nothing.

I looked at the official rules for the tournament and for 1st play is a trophy with no cash value and it doesn't say anything about prizes just that "Contest prizes are not transferable. Prizes may not be substituted for or redeemed for cash". They will also have a cash bar there so you can throw more of your money away. The cash bar will also have food and beverages available. So if you expect to be around for a while to be Crowned the Poker King of Charleston, you better bring a few more $20 bills with ya.
To make this tournament even more of a flop is that they are starting it at 8pm, so if there is at least 100 people in this tournament, well I hope you don't have any plans for sunday morning/afternoon cause you'll still be playing poker.

I'm not sure who or what committee thought up this idea but they need to take this plan back to the drawing board because it's in desperate need of fixing. I love playing poker but not for that long and with no pay out or prize at the end.
