Crown Casino To Host Charity Poker Tournament
October 24, 2021
On October 27th, Australian poker players (and anyone else who wants to make the trip) will have a chance to play poker with PokerStars Pro Joe Hachem as he hosts the "2008 Joe Hachem & Shane Warne Charity Poker Tournament" along with internationally renowned Cricketer Shane Warne.

This $1,000 buy-in tournament (with $500 rebuys) will be fully catered and will have a celebrity (mostly Aussie) at each and every table. Some of the celebrities expected to attend include Jeff Fenech, Brian McFadden, FiFi Box, Kevin Muscat and Billy Brownless. The winner of the event is guaranteed a $25,000 cash first prize.

All proceeds of the event will go to the Shane Warne Foundation, an organization dedicated to raising funds to help underprivileged and seriously ill children in Australia. The Shane Warne Foundation works as a conduit to many smaller organizations, distributing the raised money to help them buy equipment and run programs that benefit Australian kids.
