We have talked about Gaming at JordanCon, but we wanted to go into a little more detail about one of the events hosted by the Charity. Every year at JordanCon we have a Seanchan Poker Tournament!
Now I am sure you are saying “The Seanchan didn’t play poker in the books,” and you are right they didn’t. But as you may or may not know, Robert Jordan said the Seanchan accent was similar to the US Texan accent. Well, we took that idea and ran with it in this particular case.
The poker tourney is No-Limit Texas Hold’em and all the proceeds go to charity. Even if you have never played Texas Hold’em, you are welcome to come and play. The tournament usually takes place on Friday night and there is a $20 buy-in. Everybody begins with 1,000 chips. Signup starts half an hour before the tournament. Big blinds start at 20 and small blinds at 10. Blinds will increase at a regular interval. If you run out, we allow one buy-back for $20 for 500 chips. Buy-back is not allowed at the final table.
As we have said before, we’re not only a great Fantasy Convention, we are also a 501C4 Charity Organization. The poker tournament is one of the ways we raise money for charity. Make sure you come and check it out and play with us. You’ll have a great time and help out a great charity.
