Shuffle Up for a Cause: Mau50 Poker Tournament Supporting Cancer Research

Shuffle Up for a Cause: Mau50 Poker Tournament Supporting Cancer Research

Mauritz Altikardes turned 50 years old recently. This memorable achievement needs some flair, and what better way by doing this as by organizing an online tournament on Coolbet with one reason only; Cancer Research! The guaranteed prize pool consists out of a whopping €1,770!

Poker is a game which is close to all our hearts, in good and bad times. Same goes for health, which is without a doubt, the most important factor of our game. Often professional poker players mention it, an unhealthy lifestyle does not give you an edge at the poker tables, neither should it be a disadvantage, but to follow a healthy lifestyle is key to success!

Unfortunately, the topic cancer plays a big role in many people's lives as well. Everybody can agree with me here, that you have someone close by you who suffered/is suffering of this terrible disease.

Whoever is opting to make a fundraiser for this cause, already should deserve a medal on it's own, but if it gets combined with a fancy game of poker where you can actually win something as well, a statue is well-deserved!
