Mexican Poker Pros Rally Together In Wake of Devastating Earthquake

There is still time to help.

Poker pros JC Alvarado, Angel Guillen and Aaron Been are coming together to help the people of Mexico who have been left devastated after a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck Mexico City on Tuesday.

The guys are sourcing tools for rescuers, supplies for shelters and medicine and medical supplies for those most affected.

Alvarado has set up a donations page so the wider poker community can come together and help where they can — their goal is to raise $15,000 USD.
