Joe Hachem and Shane Warne Charity Poker Tournament Update

• Level 15: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

During the last break, we made our way up to the 5th Annual Joe Hachem and Shane Warne Charity Poker Tournament. The tournament is well under way with what appeared to be more than 20 tables! One of those tables seemed particularly tough, hosting David Gorr, Tony G, and Patrik Antonius, the latter two seated side by side (Tony G had position on Antonius).

We also had a quick stop and chat with Maria Ho and Kevmath, the former pulling us close and whispering, "This might be a good one because they don't like to fold."

It certainly appeared to be a good one as the atmosphere was jovial with music, drinks, and the general sense of fulfillment that comes with supporting a great cause, that being the Shane Warne Foundation, whose mission it is to raise funds for seriously ill and underprivileged children in Australia.
