Betting For Justice 2014

Miami Poker Society presents the 3rd Annual “Betting For Justice” charity poker tournament to benefit Legal Services of Greater Miami.

 

LSGMI is a non-for-profit that provides legal services to those in need and is entrenched in helping the Miami-Dade community – their website is www.lsgmi.org

 

Our tournament will be held on Sunday, November 2nd, at 12:00 pm at the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood Casino Poker Room.

 

This will be a $10,000 Guarantee prize pool (subject to entries) and over $10,000 in additional prizes!

 

Buy in is $150 for 7,500 units.  The tournament will feature $20 re-buys and an optional $50 add-on at the end of the first break.

 

This year we are doing a focus on South Florida’s finest poker professionals; amongst our hosts thus far are Anthony Ruberto, Nigel Murray, Michael Ortiz, Michael Tait, Juan Mubarak, Zoltan Czinkota, Bobby Leff, and South Florida’s poker ambassador “Big” Dave Lemmon of Ante Up magazine and the Poker Action Line.  These pros have combined for over $3 million in tournament earnings.

 

There are two trophies up for grabs for our tournament – our inaugural Miami Poker Society Championship Belt for the overall winner and a separate trophy for the pro that lasts longest.
