WPT National Korea Kicks off with THC Charity Event — This season’s WPT National Korea starts off with a show of solidarity and love towards those who are less fortunate in society, with the THC Charity Event.
The event is a two-day race with a buy-in of ₩ 800,000. Each participant gets a starting stack of 10,000 chips, and blind levels increase at 40-minute intervals. Day 1 ended after a total of six high-octane levels, to continue into Day 2. The champion, in addition to the prize pool, will also be receiving the special, custom-made THC Charity Event trophy made especially for the occasion. The entirety of the administrative fees paid (₩100,000 per entry), as well as 10% of the total prize pool (₩70,000 per entry), will be donated to the THC Association, whose main mission is to help foster better learning and living conditions for students who come from poorer areas of Mainland China.
Due to the less-than-stellar weather conditions in Jeju on the day of the tournament, many participants’ flights were delayed. It is a testament to the poker players’ determination and good will to help the less fortunate that they continued on their trek to Maison Glad Hotel Jeju, and still joined the event, though it was held-back four hours to start at 21:00p.m instead of the scheduled 17:00p.m (Korean Time, GMT +9).
The event was joined by the all-star charity members that the association counts as members, starting from the founder, Zhou Quan, and members like Leon Hsu, Ye Bilian, Wang Chen, PKC President, Winfred Yu, and Team PKC member, Juicy Li. The game is open to the public and will continue to accept registrations until the end of Level 8 today. Don’t miss your chance for a rousing game of Texas Hold’em poker and to help give back to charity, and join Day 2 today.
