The SiGMA Charity Poker Tournament will take place on 16th November, Day 1 of SiGMA16, shortly after networking drinks, at the InterContinental Hotel, St. Julian’s.
The free-roll event will be hosted on the seventh floor at the InterContinental hotel, which makes it easier for the tournament to start without the need to register each player at the door, as is customary for poker tournaments with prize money in licensed casinos.
The raised funds will be donated to Malta Community Chest Fund - a charitable institution chaired by The President of Malta, Her Excellency Mary Louise Coleiro Preca. The aim of the institution is to help philanthropic institutions and more importantly, the individuals with different needs.
The Tournament was a huge success during SiGMA15. A bumper crowd of 600 delegates attended the networking drinks and pre-registration, which took place shortly before the poker tourney, each of which received some merchandise, the SiGMA badge, complimentary nibbles, networking drinks as well as the official SiGMAgazine publication. Among the delegates who participated at the tournament were several super affiliates, some of which flew over to Malta for SiGMA as well as the Casumo Grand Slam. Upon exit from the tournament, players were able to mingle in a friendly networking environment with the rest of the SiGMA delegates.
