2014 Memorial Poker Tournament
Sunday July 13th, 2014
With the amazing support and generous outpouring of love, honor and respect, the poker industry came out to share stories and good times for our friend Chad Brown. Thank you to all who attended and those who dug deep into their wallets to support the TJ Martell Foundation where we raised $35,800 plus cash donations. With “Match Donations” from PokerStars, Chad’s poker sponsors, the foundation received over $71,000 in donations to research the very rare form of cancer Chad had, liposarcoma.
BLUFF PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARD
Announced at the memorial was a very special honor.
Bluff Magazine’s Player of the Year Award will now and forever be known as the Chad Brown Award.
Chad was honored Bluff Player of the Year in 2006. Over the course of that year, he captured the BLUFF Player of the Year award when he cashed ten times, earning $605,000 thanks to five final tables including two WPT events, a WSOP Circuit event and an EPT stop.
Poker News was on hand to cover the ceremony along with Poker Stars. Below are links to the wonderful coverage they provided.
Thank you to all who played the Charity Poker Tournament and to our wonderful sponsors!
