Score Good Karma Points in Time for WPTN London!

This week @Aspers Casino - Westfield Stratford City will be hosting the WPT National - London and the festival will kick off with a special charity event for the benefit of DT38 Foundation. If you believe one should 'give back to get more', here's an excellent opportunity to earn favor with the poker gods while supporting a good cause!

DT38 Foundation was established in memory of Australian born professional footballer (West Ham United) Dylan Tombides who was misdiagnosed at first and eventually lost his three-year battle with cancer at only 20 years old. The foundation is dedicated to raising awareness of testicular cancer and hopes to help change the way it is diagnosed so as to avoid tragedy striking other young lives.

The rebuy charity tournament is scheduled on Wednesday July 29th at 7pm. The £100 buy-in will get you 6,000 starting chips and while 38% of the prize pool will be donated to DT38 Foundation, the @World Poker Tour and @PartyPoker.com are adding the following great prizes:

WPT National London Seat (two flights)
Four sets of Monster headphones
A WPT500 entry
Two Grandstand tickets to October’s British MotoGP
A £330 Pokerfest buy-in
Signed sports memorabilia
WPT National flight buy-in for busting Simon Lazenby or Tony Dunst

Confirmed poker notables include  @Charles Chattha @James Akenhead @James Dempsey  and partypoker ambassador  @Tony Dunst. RankingHero members will be pleased to know that our ambassadors @Lucille Cailly and @Pedro Canali will be in attendance as well!

And for those of us unable to play the event at Aspers, it is possible to donate directly on the DT38 JustGiving page
