PokerStars hosts Kent Senter benefit

ps_news_thn.jpgIf you have reached adulthood and your life takes a unimaginable, terminal turn, it's rare to find yourself in a position where one of your lifelong dreams comes true. For Kent Senter, it happened.

You might have heard about Senter, a man on the top of the world with a good wife and family, who found out two years ago that he is going to die much sooner than he ever imagined. Stricken with tumors all over his spine, Senter suffers a terminal cancer. He's going to be gone long before he should've been,

His dreams were as big as traveling into space and playing in the Main Event of the World Series of Poker. Between a loving wife, Bluff Magazine, and PokerStars, Senter got that WSOP chance this year and made it to Day 2 of the Main Event.


With the 2009 WSOP now mostly behind us, it might be easy to forget about the man and what he faces. Instead, PokerStars and Bluff have organized a benefit tournament to help the Senter family combat his rising medical costs.

We'd encourage you to take a little time and a small piece of your bankroll to help a man who loves poker in a way we hope we never have to.

Here are the tournament details.
