My family grew up around a card table.  My father would get together once a month with a few of my uncles and cousins for a rotating game of standard poker games like 7 Card Stud, 5 card draw, and others. 

In 2003 a man named Chris Moneymaker took a $40 online tournament qualifying win and ending up winning the main event at the World Series of Poker for $2.5 Million dollars.  After this event, Texas Hold-Em tournaments became more popular than ever and the poker boom was born.

If you would like to play in a poker tournament, possibly win some money and know that a fair amount of the proceeds will go to a good cause, mark your calendar for this event.
