Atlas Poker Night Thursday
This Thursday night, Atlas THON will be having its second annual Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament to benefit THON. Last year, the event singlehandedly raised over $500 and took place in the basement of Atherton Hall.
This year, Atlas is going for a less Mafioso more public approach, as the tournament will be Thursday at 7:15 pm in Redifer Commons. With more available seating for potential players, as well as experience gained from last year’s run, Atlas hopes to exceed their total fundraising total from last year.
If you pre-register in the HUB from 11 am to 3 pm any day up and through Thursday, the cost is $10. You can also show up Thursday night and pay $12. The doors open at 6:45 pm Thursday to give you time to find your seat as well as mingle, adjust your lucky sunglasses, and trash talk your opponent. The winner of the tournament will receive a $225 Visa gift card, and second- through seventh-place winners will get some swag as well.
If last year’s success is any indication, this year’s tournament should be even better. With all the space at Redifer, there’s no reason Atlas shouldn’t exceed $500 on Thursday—but they can only do it if you come. Whether you’ve never played before or you’re trying to win the whole shabang, $10-$12 is a pretty small price to pay; come play for the kids!
