Violette to host Full Tilt Poker charity event
On Sunday at 3 p.m. ET, Violette will host a $5+$5 charity poker tournament with the first $5 going to the prize pool and the second getting split between The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, Paralyzed Veterans of America and Special Olympics.
The money will be donated through Poker Gives, a charitable organization started by Mike Sexton, Linda Johnson, Jan Fischer, and Lisa Tenner to give poker players an easy way to donate some of their winnings to charitable causes.
Players can find the charity tournament at Full Tilt Poker in the "private" section of the tournament lobby. To enter, you'll need to log in to your Full Tilt Poker account, press "Control T" and enter 9105889. The password is "charity."
The tournament is a chance to help out with some good causes as well as potentially sit at the table with Violette.
Violette recorded some of her first tournament cashes in the early 80s and has since amassed more than a million dollars in tournament winnings and a World Series of Poker bracelet.
This summer she will be recognized for her poker achievements with induction into the Women in Poker Hall of Fame, June 5 at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas.
