The response has been overwhelming. The support has been overwhelming and the massive freaking out in my brain about the evening in general has been overwhelming.

This coming Thursday night, as far as I know, will be the biggest charity poker tournament the recruiting industry has seen. It looks like 60 players plus will descend on EA in order to raise some money for HopeLab and prove that they are no amateur when it comes to finding out who has got the nuts or not.

Jobster, SimplyHired, ZoomInfo, JobDig, ERE, TheLadders, JobBounty, Yahoo, MyStaffingPro, JobCentral, Monster, HireVue, EA, and have all agreed to help raise some real money for a charity that Jeff Hunter chose. (Jeff is the guy who is putting on a very interesting get together)

I was originally hoping that we could get about 30 people but it looks like it is much more, perhaps even triple. I am sure there will be some snags along the way in terms of everything that happens but what I do now for sure is this.

The food is taken care of
The drinks are taken care of
The poker tables and dealers are taken care of
The room itself is being taken care of
The music is taken care of
The prizes will be taken care of by the end of the day
Video will be taken care of by the end of the day

All of the other things about throwing a poker tournament/party that I am unaware of I hope will turn out for the best. I am sure it will. I have Sean Rehder and Dave Mendoza really doing an amazing job with all of the recruiters who are coming to play. Thanks guys, no way this would happen without you.

What really is getting me going though is looking at all of the familiar faces who will be betting their stacks that I have nothing every time I raise. It’s all very funny but it’s true. I’ve seen it before. Gerry Crispin can tell you all about it.

The Structure of the Evening:

  • A Feature Table with 10 players (the sponsors) playing down to one player.
  • 6 other tables playing down to one player with prizes for the top 4
  • Lots of simpletinis ( a SimplyHired specialty), fantastic talk about the recruiting business and lots of networking.
  • See you all in T-Minus 3 days.

      […] Yes I know I ill be accused of kissing your ass for this, but certain things must be said, “You are the Mac Daddy, the Sultan of Community building and Seer of the Next Big Thing.” This is well established fact, but given the passion you have displayed in developing the 2nd Charity Poker Tourney & Mixer, I have an excuse to comment with well deserved praise.
