HavenCon Celebrity Poker Fundraiser Rules:

There will be 2 slots auctioned off at HavenConTx.com/CelebrityPoker with bids closing on April 16th.
All funds raised through the auction will set the starting amount to be evenly distributed in chips to each player.  Example:  $1000 raised, each player will recieve $200 in chips.  The actual funds go directly to TransLifeLine.org.

"Sponsor" a player:
At the event, attendees can sponsor a player by visiting the cashier and making a donation. That donation then translates to more chips for that player. These chips can be redeemed at any time by the sponsored player to keep from busting out or to up their overall chances of winning!

Can't make it to the event? Use the donation button below the auction form to donate any amount and we'll add it to the starting pot!

The "Prize":
This is for charity, but that doesn't mean the winner shouldn't get something too! The winner of the game will receive an exclusive HavenCon 2016 Celebrity Poker Match trophy!

Sponsoring will only take place during the first 45 minutes of the game to ensure all chips are played by the end of the game.

The "Winner" will be last person standing.

The Game? Texas Holdem
The Rules?
We'll be playing a Texas HoldEm poker variant.
Same general rules, however, nobody can fold! You do not have to increase your bet, but you must play through the entire hand with at least the ante.
The ante will increase with each hand and the amount will be determined by the dealer at the start of each hand based on time and remaining chips.

Pretty easy!

So, let's have some fun and raise money for a great cause! 

We will also be hosting a Q&A during the game!
