Shore Leave, A fan run Science Fiction Convention
If you've been a regular member at previous Shore Leaves and a late night convention participant, you may have seen Robbie Greenberger and friends playing Texas hold-em wherever they could find a quiet out of the way corner. In memory of Robbie, Shore Leave will be holding its Sixth Annual Texas Hold-em Poker Tournament on the evening of Saturday August 2, immediately after the Masquerade award presentation.
As Robbie and his friends only played for chips (and to keep us in compliance with state and county regulations), our chips will represent points and have no monetary value. As in any Texas hold-em tournament, the winner will be the player holding all the issued chips. Players will be awarded certificates denoting where they placed in the tournament. (In this regard, it will be like winning in Monopoly.)
As with last year's tournament, you will need to show proof of a donation to either your local or National chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
