Poker tournaments are among the most luxurious events on the planet not just because of the star-studded attendance they often feature but also because of their ability to make a difference. The poker industry has always found ways to give back to the society from time to time, efforts that have made the industry even more popular in the global community.
Now, if you are looking for an opportunity to make a difference by simply participating in a game of poker, partypoker will be hosting an online charity tournament. Slated to run as from November 15 to November 24, the upcoming Caribbean Poker Party will be hosted by partypoker LIVE at Baha Mara.
Both the online poker operator and the host venue also collaborated with each other in order to add a prize for the online entry tournament that is scheduled for October 13. They have a whopping $78,000 for the eight packages that will be offered during the $100 entry tournament.
The tournament series will be to help the victims of Hurricane Dorian which had a disastrous effect on the Abacos Islands and Grand Baham, both of which are located on the south of Nassau’s Baha Mar Resort.
Some of the most notable highlights of the upcoming charity event include the buy-ins. Depending on how you choose to approach them, you may be able to get incredible value for your participation. The most eye-catching ones include:

Making Poker Safer for Everyone
As it strives to give back to the community, partypoker is also still hellbent on making online poker safer and more secure for its customers. The poker operator has been fighting to rid its platform of online poker bots and so far, it has been able to purge quite a number of them and recover huge sums of money from them. Kudos to them for that.
