Negreanu, Hellmuth and Somerville Play Poker To Help The Kids

St. Jude's Children's Hospital of Las Vegas benefits from charity poker tourney.

This weekend, the day before he was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame, All-Time Money Leader Daniel Negreanu co-chaired a charity poker tournament at Vdara in Las Vegas designed to benefit the local chapter of the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

The night brought out a number of poker stars to pitch in and play poker with an aim to help those that help children with catastrophic diseases.

In addition to Negreanu, poker pros Jason Somerville, Jeff Madsen, Ryan Riess and Antonio Esfandiari were on hand playing and, actually, winning some of the nights top prizes. Somerville went on to win a $15K PokerStars PCA package while Hellmuth took home the top prize (bought in by his agent Brian Balsbaugh) a sick Corvette Stingray.

Here’s some pics from the night and if you want to read even more on the charity event, check out another nice write-up by Robbie Strazynski over at CardPlayer Lifestyle.
