Fundraiser for Fire Relief and Caritas

The Deep Stack Poker Fundraiser is tomorrow at Third Base Downtown.  We are asking a $30 suggested donation and/or 2 bags of non-perishable goods for Caritas of Austin.

I just spoke with Caritas and this is what is really needed:

Dry Milk, Spaghetti, Toilet Paper, Feminine Hygiene products, Shampoo, Soap, Deodorant and NO RICE OR BEANS!

Anything else will be great!!!

Please come out and support your neighbors.  You never know when you may be on the receiving end of community outreach.

Thank you to Cruz Tequila, Third Base, Golden Nugget, Paramount Theatre, Austin Brew Bus, Lord Griffon and Epic Poker League for your donations to the tournament!


Third Base, DSPC and Comfort The Children International Team Up!

Comfort the Children International is raising money for their programs in Kenya!  And you can help by donating $50 for a raffle ticket to win a $5K Diamond Bracelet!  As an added benefit with your raffle ticket, you may choose to play in a poker tournament on 11/11/11!

Only 2000 raffle tickets are available!  Deep Stack Poker Club will randomly be giving away a raffle ticket to winners of nightly tournaments between now and November 11!  Random is the key word!  It won’t be every night…and there will be no set pattern!  DSPC may send out texts as hints!

1st place in the tournament will be a Main Event seat at the January 2012 Choctaw WSOP Circuit event

2nd place is 2 nights at the Golden Nugget and entry in the opening tournament, “Texas Nugget” of the Grand Series of Poker

Other great prizes coming, so stay tuned!  Click here to get your raffle ticket today!  Remember, once they are gone, they are gone!

Deep Stack Poker Club No Abuse Policy

It’s simple:  Any player that is verbally or physically aggressive towards any server, player or tournament director will be asked to leave the tournament.  First time will get you a warning, 2nd time will get you a final warning, and 3rd time will give you a 3 month suspension from playing at any and all Deep Stack Poker Club events–including fundraisers.

Anyone caught cheating will be suspended for 3 months immediately!  Cheating is defined as claiming food chips when you haven’t purchased food, claiming to have brought a friend when you don’t know the person, bringing in extra chips or taking chips off the table.

Yes, poker is competitive, yes people are drinking….and yes, we are still asking you to remember to play nice with one another like we used to in the sandbox. 

If you want to know what is considered abusive–disrespecting location or DSPC property, yelling/cursing at players/servers/staff. Continuously walking tabs, and continuously behaving in an aggressive manner towards players, servers or staff.

We want new players to come back!  And not let a few bad apples keep players away!

Deep Stack Poker Club is committed to providing the highest caliber tournaments in Austin that can be used as a training ground for winning professional tournaments.  Players can play to have fun and socialize with like minded people, win prizes or hone their poker skills!
