Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is all set to host the 6th Charity Series of Poker (CSOP) night on the 30th of January which will feature a celebrity charity poker event that will benefit two charities in the garden state which is the Community FoodBank of New Jersey and Habitat for Humanity of Atlantic County.
Poker Pro Matt Stout founded the CSOP which has grown in popularity with every passing year. The CSOP was founded as a charitable and not for profit organization whose key goal is to raise funds for local charities by organizing poker tournaments that generate funds to help these charities. The CSOP relies on professional poker players, celebrity poker players and regular poker players to assist in its fund raising efforts.
The event on the 30th of January will feature celebrities and some of the top poker players in the business such as World Poker Tour (WPT) champion Asher Conniff, World Series of Poker (WSOP) November Niners Neil Blumenfield and Josh Beckley, WSOP bracelet winners Vanessa Selbst and Jeff Madsen, One Drop champion Tony Gregg, three time WPT champion Anthony Zinno, Will “The Thrill” Failla and well known film critic Richard Roeper.
In a statement, Stout said “I’m really excited about returning our event to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. They’ve always gone above and beyond to help us raise money for deserving aid organizations and it feels good to gather my poker and celebrity friends to make a contribution while having a great time doing it. We are all thrilled that The Community Food Bank of New Jersey and Habitat for Humanity of Atlantic County will once again be the beneficiaries.”
There will be a special No-Limit Hold’Em Turbo tournament that will commence at 5 pm and be open to the public. The event will have a buy-in of $330 (out of which $100 will used as a donation and be considered tax deductible) and re-entries will be permitted for all players. The only restriction is that players must be over 21 years to participate in the event.
The CSOP event is expected to start early as a pre-party with an open bar commences at 3.30 pm and will close at 5 pm. Registrations for the event starts from the 18th of January right till the 30th of January and players can register online and make payment using their credit card or register on-site at the Borgata Poker Room but will have to pay in cash.
