UB Announces 1st Annual Starlight Poker Challenge
October 7, 2021

Starting Saturday, November 14th and continuing until the 18th, the beautiful city of Montreal will play host to the first ever UltimateBet Starlight Poker Challenge, a huge charity poker event featuring a guaranteed first prize worth $100,000.

The Starlight Poker Challenge's goal is to raise money for the Starlight Children's Foundation, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for seriously ill and injured children, and will attempt to attract 1000 players to Montreal in pursuit of that goal, to play in what is now being billed as the largest charity poker tournament ever held in Canada.

The event, which will feature a World Series of Poker style structure and numerous celebrity players including Annie Duke and Phil Hellmuth, is scheduled to last for four days and will end in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a one of a kind final table sure to attract headlines.
