Virtue Poker will host a Celebrity Charity Poker tournament beginning this Sunday September 26th at 11 pm UTC (4pm PST, 7pm EST).
The event will be streamed on YouTube - we will share the streaming link before the event on Sunday.
The participants will include Hall of Famer and Virtue Poker Team Pro, Phil Ivey, Hall of Fame NBA player Paul Pierce, YouTube phenom Mr. Beast, Polygon Co-Founder Sandeep Nailwal, and Ethereum Co-Founder and Consensys Founder Joe Lubin. The participants of the event will compete for a $100,000 prize pool for charity.
We are pleased to announce Lon McEachern and Norman Chad will be our announcers for the featured table for this Sunday!
Due to the immense challenge in scheduling this event (our 12 players are spread across 7 time zones ranging from Dubai, Asia, Australia, Pacific and East coast US, Central Europe) - we've decided to run the event over multiple days.
12 players across two tables will compete for a $100,000 prize pool for charity. The 12 players will be broken down into two separate tables of 6 players. Each table will play down to a winner - with the winner’s facing off for the Virtue Poker Championship Title.
Table 1: 9/26 11 pm UTC
Table 2: 9/28 3 pm UTC
Final Table: Date TBA
Table 1 will include:
Nick Rose: Founder of Ethernity
