What is a Pokerthon?
Poker Players Unite (PPU) has come up with a new and innovative way to combine our love of poker and helping others in need. We are proud to introduce you to The Pokerthon! The Pokerthon consists of the same rules you would see during a walkathon, but we have modified them to work on the live or virtual felt!
The rules for a walkathon are quite simple. Foundations look for participants to participate in the event, and the participants look for people to sponsor/pledge a certain amount of money per mile they walk. Obviously, we won't be walking miles around the poker tables, but tournament players can use the blind levels to raise money and cash game players can go by each hour played.
