Get Into the Action at I'm Maul In Poker Tournament
Tournaments - USA Sevens Tournament


Want to be a part of the Vegas action during the USA 7s? Then cap off your Friday night at the USA 7s by taking a seat at the 4th Annual I'Maul In No Limit Texas Hold 'Em Charity Poker Tournament. The action takes place at the Poker Room at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino.

Located on the Las Vegas Strip and host to the international teams playing in the Las Vegas Sevens Tournament, the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino is ideally located for the annual I'Maul In tournament.

Several current and past U.S. Eagles have already signed up for this year's tournament, including current U.S. captain Todd Clever, Kevin Swiryn, Mose Timoteo, Mike Saunders, John Jelaco, Rick Crivellone, Tim Kluempers, Chris Petrakes, Dave Bateman and Brian Gallagher. In addition, former WSOP bracelet winner Blair Rodman and Las Vegas Advisor founder, Anthony Curtis, both former Las Vegas Blackjacks rugby players, will be back to try their luck at the I'Maul In Tournament.

The first hand will be dealt at 10:00 pm on Friday, February 8, 2013. In order to take part in this year's I'Maul In Tournament, participants must pre-register. The registration fee is just $30. Seating is limited to the first 100 players so register now to reserve your seat.

The buy-in for the I'Maul In No Limit Texas Hold 'Em Charity Poker Tournament is $65 per player with $50 rebuys and a one-time $50 add-on also available. The Monte Carlo receives a portion of the initial buy-in for hosting the event. The remainder from the initial buy-in and all monies from the rebuys and add-on will go into the player prize pool. 10% of the number of total registrants will get paid so spread the word so we can get to the full allotment of 100 players.

In addition to the first place money, the winner will also receive the coveted 2013 I'Maul In No Limit Texas Hold 'em Poker Tournament crystal trophy.
