UK industry charity to host third annual competition at Develop Conference 2010

GamesAid, a UK games industry charity for young people, has announced its third annual charity poker tournament to be held at the Develop Conference in Brighton.

Sponsored by Relentless Software and Eurogamer, the event will take place from 8pm on the evening of Tuesday 13th July at the Grosvenor Casino on the Brighton Seafront.
 
The Tournament Prize structure has been confirmed as follows: first place to win £400, second place to win £200, third place to win £100, fourth place to win a range of Blu-ray and DVDs, and fifth place to win four tickets for a Liverpool FC Stadium tour and museum visit, as well as a number of prizes made available throughout the night. All levels of players are welcome with a table dedicated to beginners.
 
Last year raised close to £5,000 for GamesAid, and with up to 50 games industry players expected to attend this year’s event, that amount is expected to be surpassed.
 
The game is Texas Hold ‘Em no limit with a £50 buy-in with cash re-buys and add-ons available on the night.
 
Players are requested to register their £50 entry prior to the event on the following link where all the tournament details, including venue, timing and game rules, can be found at www.justgiving.com/gamesaidpokerdevelop2010

Players are also advised to provide photo ID on the night.
 
"Relentless is a strong supporter of GamesAid and is happy to provide the opportunity for a great poker event and raise loads of money for charity,” said Relentless co-founder Andrew Eades.

“There's a beginners’ table this year so please come along even if you are a novice. It's always a fun night for all who attend”.
