Fourth annual conference-based tournament to raise money for Best Buddies California

GDC11: Don’t forget tomorrow’s charity poker

The fourth annual ISM Invitational Charity Poker Tournament will be held alongside GDC 2011 tomorrow, March 1st, with proceeds going to developmental disabilities charity Best Buddies California.

Taking place at City View in the Metreon building in San Francisco, previous tournaments have seen players, spectators and participating studios and companies raise over $80k (£50K) for charity.

This year, a limited number of players can compete in Texas Hold ‘Em for prizes and trophies, and a cash bar will be open for spectators.

Registration details can be found on the event website.
