Hey kids, Steve O. wanted me to pass this along. Sounds like a lot of fun, and it’s for a great cause, the Society for Orphaned Armenian Relief. For more info, you can click here. Here’s the basics:

The number of entrants will dictate the number of winners. As this is a charity fundraiser, SOAR will take 30% of the pot. The remaining 70% will be shared by the winners. If we have a pot of $10,000, SOAR would take $3000 and the remaining $7000 would be shared by the winners. In this example, the payout would be $4000 for 1st place, $2000 for 2nd place, and $1000 for 3rd place.
Armenian food will be served for dinner – shish kebab, pilaf, pita bread, hummus, baklava, etc. Snacks after dinner. Beer, soda, and H20 to drink. Self-deal. Tournament will be run via a computer program/laptop/projector screen.
