Charity begins at ...... poker??


Here at Ipswich PubPoker we are proud to raise money to help support local charities. And all whilst having a damn good game of cards - talk about win/win!
Poker, the law and charity:
Our Season final tournaments are played as charity events. This is the only way Ipswich PubPoker are able to offer a prize pool in excess of 100 without obtaining a commercial gambling licence. This also means we must adhere to a strict set of rules.
No commercial gain can be made from running a charity poker event. This means that Ipswich PubPoker may not profit in any way from running the final events.

Players that qualify in the top spots of our leagues are all invited to attend our season final.
Extra donations are requested on the day, but as always these are optional! We have a suggested donation of 5, and for an 8 hour tournament with a 1200 prize pool we think that's great value!!
Throughout the season we ask players for a donation of 1 per game. This money goes into the charity fund for the season.
By law any reasonable expense incurred in running the event may then be deducted from this fund. This could include (among others) hire of the venue, catering and the prize pool itself.
To make sure that the maximum amount of money collected is donated to the nominated charity, Ipswich PubPoker ensures there is no charge for the venue or for catering. However we do deduct the prize pool from the fund.
As you can see this means that Ipswich PubPoker does not profit in any way from members donations!
