Charity Poker Tournaments for Katrina Relief

I'm posting this on both and BlackroseWorld so that the word gets out to more folks. If you read both (which you should), I apologize for the redundancy.

Several online poker tournaments are being held by PokerStars for Hurricane Katrina relief, thanks to Wil Wheaton. PokerStars is even matching the buy-in! Click Wil's name above for the story. Also, Dr. Pauly of the Tao of Poker has good info about these and FullTilt's tournament here.

I may play in the $5 and/or $20 PokerStars tournaments. I will post my username (in case anyone cares) once I set up the software this week.

If you play online poker, give some a whirl. It's for an excellent cause, and you could even win some great prizes, which Wil discusses in his post.

Edit (9/6) - My PokerStars username is RandomSam. I'm not sure which tourney I'm playing in, but the $5 one may be the only one my schedule will allow. Hope to see everyone there.
