Smile Poker Charter 2014

My Name is (ahh nearly slipped out)
I am a regular poker player in Dublin, last April my poker reached a new low.
I decided to give it a last ditched effort to try salvaging the hobby I love.
After lots of deliberation and soul searching “The Charter” was born.
My theory was “if I can’t do it for me, maybe I can do it for someone else!”
Here is a copy my Charter;

Poker Charter
________________



Date 21stApril 2014

My Name is ####### ######
This my poker charter as of the above date
Any poker tournament, any winnings will be split on a ratio i.e.

1/3 of any winnings will be donated to charity, the charity benefiting (if any) is the:
The Capuchin Day Centre,
29 Bow Street, Dublin 7.

1/3 of the winnings to be shared with family (friends).

1/3 to be decided on whatever, usually my bankroll.
This Charter will last for six months; on the 21st October this charter will be revised. A full record of tournaments will be kept at the end of each fortnight payments if any will be passed onto the charity.


Failure to adhere fully to this charter will mean a complete withdrawal from Texas Holdem on a permanent basis.

--------------------------
###### #######



All comments welcomed?

Is it winnings you are splitting or profit? How do you calculate that? If you 'win' 5k in one month from an outlay of 3k, but lose 4k the next month how does that work? Seems like a strange one. If it's for 6 months why are you revising it in 4 months?

Very noble and good luck with this if you follow through. You actually beat me to it but I was going to start a similar log for July to New Year. As a recretional player both live and online I will be starting one on Tuesday with 25% of profit at the end of every month going to the Hospice in Harolds Cross. glgl all.

Interesting idea.

Don't answer if you don't want, but as you've been committed to the charter since April 21st, how have you got on with it in the period since then?

In money terms the charity has received 945 , prefer not to go into exact details.
On another level "the charter" has helped me be more focused on the job in hand.

How did it help keep you focused?

Was has donating the money focused you?

Why only one charity ?

How did it help keep you focused?
I am naturally a loose aggressive player , my concentration would falter when i needed it most.
My play was so erratic i considered packing in poker full stop!
I came up with the idea of the charter to give me a goal orientated approach. I printed it out signed it and keep it in my wallet all the time , just to remind me.

Was has donating the money focused you?
Assume you mean "Why has donating the money focused you?" A good friend of mine always gave what he called "Lucky Money" to friends when he got lucky in the bookies , to him he was spreading the luck around.
The charity i picked , impressed me hugely with their approach to homeless people. No one gets turned away. No questions asked, they give without expecting anything in return. People needing help is the best focus i could have. " it's not about me ! It's about them"

Why only one charity ?
This was a personal decision, I read a quote in an article saying 'i'm the CEO of the Capuchin Day Care Centre and my salary is nil" , that's why for the moment it's one charity.

Check out what the do here

Hope this answers your Q's

offer domain name and hosting

I am taking care of 2 poker domains
www.holdem.ie and www.aceofspades.ie both hosted together.

Your Charter runs to end of October...
I can park test site currently there and give you access to these domains until November (1 month after charter finishes), providing everything is up front and marketing on sites is directly translated into charity... No middle men... You could use banner ads and payments could be made directly to charity(i'm sure some of the bigger clubs would come on board)...

I will install a blank version of Joomla on site.
I can setup email accounts running of theses as well i.e. charter@holdem.ie or charity@holdem.ie etc , etc... emails can be forwarded to any email account or you can use your own account...

PM if interested...


Best of Luck...
