PokerStars $100 Hurricane Katrina Relief Tournament Results
After four tournaments, a private donation, Barry Greenstein donating his winnings from a WCOOP event, and PokerStars matching all funds 100%, the contributors have put together $127,805 that will be sent to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Katrina disaster relief.
Conceived and hosted by Team PokerStars member Wil Wheaton, the four tournaments brought out the best in an already spectacular PokerStars community. I, for one, am proud to know Wil and proud to work with and for some of the best people in the poker world. PokerStars players are the best on the internet and these tournaments showed it. Thanks to everyone who participated and gave your time and money to such an important effort.
Friday night capped off the relief tournaments with a $100 tournament. Wil Wheaton not only showed up, but made the final table. In a spectacular repeat, peacecorn made two charity final tables in a row. Talk about a player who plays with grace and skill.
Again, thanks to all of you. Good karma is coming 'round the bend. Here are the results from Friday night's final table.
