Get Your Cards in the Air at the 9th Annual I'Maul In No Limit
Texas Hold 'em Charity Poker Tournament

San Diego, CA (December 25, 2017) - Want to be a part of the Vegas action? Then cap off your Friday night at the USA 7s by taking a seat at the 9th Annual I'Maul In No Limit Texas Hold 'Em Charity Poker Tournament. The action takes place at the Poker Room at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino.

Conveniently located right next door to the USA Sevens Tournament Headquarters Hotel, the Luxor, the Mandalay Bay Poker Room is perfectly situated to host this annual fun-filled event. 

The first hand will be dealt at 10:30 pm. The buy-in for the I'Maul In No Limit Texas Hold 'Em Charity Poker Tournament remains $100 ($40 for the USRF, $30 for the player prize pool and $30 for Mandala Bay), which will be paid (cash only) at the Mandalay Bay Poker Room. Seating is limited to the first 100 players so get there on time to get a seat. If you’d like to guarantee your seat at the 2018 I’Maul In Tournament, please contact Brian Vizard at bvizard@usrugbyfoundation.com.

An initial add-on of $10 (for the dealers) for an additional 2000 chips will be offered before the cards are in the air. Rebuys will be $50 and a one-time $50 add-on is also available. All monies from the rebuys and add-ons will go towards the player prize pool. 10% of the number of total registrants will get paid so spread the word so we can get to the full allotment of 100 players. Those players who cash will also receive a first-ever I'Maul In No Limit Texas Hold 'em Charity Poker Tournament dealer button. All players will receive the I'Maul In No Limit Tournament chip as a memento of their night on the felt.

In addition to the first place money, the winner will also receive the coveted 2018 I'Maul In No Limit Texas Hold 'em Poker Tournament crystal trophy. Last year's winner, Bob Erwin, took home the crystal trophy and $1,200, and had four hours of fun in the process.

Don't be on the outside looking in on this fun fundraiser, make your plans now to be All In at this year's I'Maul In Tournament.
