'Protect Our Winters' Charity Poker Tournament
January 20, 2022
Here's a sentence you don't hear everyday. Many of the world's top snowboarders are heading to Las Vegas, Nevada, to compete against each other in a very special event.

The players wont be wearing their gear or boards of course, and they wont be sliding down a mountain at break neck speeds; no, in this case they'll be competing across the poker table, for the Protect Our Winters All-In Texas Hold 'em Charity Poker Tournament.

Protect Our Winters (POW) is a non-profit organization dedicated to reversing the global warming crisis, a cause close to the hearts of snowboarders everywhere, whose love and livelihood is intimately linked to the existence of winters full of sick powder and thick snow bases.

This important charity event is scheduled for Tuesday, January 27th, and will be hosted by the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino's brand new top of the line Poker Lounge. The buy-in for the event is $230, or only $150, if players take advantage of advanced registration - rebuys will be allowed during the first few rounds of tournament play.

Along with the opportunity to compete against professional snowboarders and poker celebrities in an intimate setting, participants will also have the opportunity to potentially win a seat into the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event, the grand prize for this tournament.

Space for this event is limited! For more information, or to register for this important tournament, visit
