International Women’s Day is just around the corner on Monday, March 8. As most of you already know, this is a special day to promote equality between the sexes as well as celebrate the achievements of women around the world. What better way to celebrate this day by getting into the giving spirit and donating to women’s charities. GGPoker has made it easy (and fun!) to donate thanks to the online poker network hosting the International Women’s Day Charity Event on March 8 at 8 p.m. GMT (3 p.m. GMT).
The event, which is open to women and men alike, features a tasty $10,000 guarantee for a very reasonable $10 buy-in. A total of $9 will go towards the prize pool with the $1 registration fee going directly to women’s charities. What’s more, is that GGPoker will add $10,000 themselves to help commemorate International Women’s Day!
The International Women’s Day Charity Event boasts a similar great structure to many events at GGPoker with players starting with 10,000 in chips and blinds increasing every eight minutes. Unlimited re-entries are permitted for the first 2 hours and 5 minutes of play.
So far, this doesn’t sound too much different than any other tournament other than you will know you did your part to donate to women’s charities. What’s different and a big reason why you should play is that GGPoker is placing bounties on the following nine guests: ElkY, Daiva Byrne, Egption, KakiTee, Kevin Martin, JNandez87, Easterdamnz, KnightUK, ALLinPav. Simply knock out any of the above players and GGPoker will reward you with T$100 for a ten-times return on your $10 buy-in. This is, of course, in addition to any money you collect from the general prize pool.
