As if Lake Tahoe wasn't already the destination gig of the summer for most of us, the fine folks at The Mockingbird Foundation have made it even more desirable. The Phamily Poker Classic is back after the successful Atlantic City event last fall. We have received confirmation last year's winner and friend of the blog, Cameron Parker, will make a triumphant return to defend his title. The official announcement below from phamilypokerclassic.com:
The time to shuffle up and deal is nearly here again!
We are extremely happy to announce the Phamily Poker Classic 2!
The Phamily Poker Classic 2 is once again a Texas Hold Em Event and will take place on August 10th at Harvey's casino in Lake Tahoe. This is the same casino that is hosting Phish's August 9th & 10th shows. This installment of The Phamily Poker Classic will be limited to 10 tables including bounties as the whole tournament will be played during the afternoon of the 10th. The blinds and chip stacks will be structured so that nobody will miss a note of Phish.
This tournament will once again benefit our favorite charity The Mockingbird Foundation. The entry fee will once again be $120 and at least half of that amount will go directly into the prize pool along with a slew of great non-cash prizes that will be raffled off throughout the tournament. We anticipate a large number of exciting non-cash prizes to give away! The remainder of the buy in will go to the expenses for the tournament and for the donation to the Mockingbird Foundation.
The non-cash prize pool will be raffled off one item at a time throughout the tournament. More information about prizes will be posted as it becomes available.
And, as an added bonus, we are very happy to announce that every tournament participant will receive a special event poster that has been custom-designed by Jon Lamb (Like Minded Productions)! Twenty (20) of these posters will be printed on archival quality paper that will be signed and numbered by Jon Lamb. The top 10 players will receive the numbered poster in the edition that corresponds to where they were knocked out (e.g., the tenth finisher will receive number ten). Posters numbered 11-20 will be auctioned off by The Mockingbird Foundation after the tournament. Poster tubes will be available for purchase at this event.
Tickets for this event will be limited to 100 players and will sell out very quickly. Tickets will be available to the general public beginning Monday May 9th at 9am pacific time. Tickets can be purchased by clicking the "buy your seat" link on the left of the page.
We hope that you will join us again and make this event as special as the original Phamily Poker Classic. With your continued support we can keep these events happening and support a great cause.
As always, we will keep you posted on any information that you need to know at www.phamilypokerclassic.com. If you have any questions we can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

All players must be 21.
