The Las Vegas summer poker schedule includes huge buy-in events, like the Super High Roller Bowl, the most iconic series in poker, the World Series of Poker, along with much, much more. The summer is also home to some of the more popular charity events the poker world has to offer, including Tiger Jam, which is set to make a Las Vegas return next month.
The exclusive two-day charity event hosted by Tiger Woods, returns for an action-packed weekend of world-class golf, high-stakes poker and elite VIP experiences to benefit the Tiger Woods Foundation’s college-access programs. The event runs from Friday, May 19 to Saturday, May 20 and all proceeds will help the Tiger Woods Foundation equip underserved students with the ability to exceed any and all expectations.
Tiger Jam will kick off on Friday, May 19 at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino with Tiger’s Poker Night, presented by the World Poker Tour. The exclusive charity poker tournament hosted by Woods will feature Poker Central Ambassador Phil Hellmuth as the emcee and other past participants include Daniel Negreanu, Antonio Esfandiari, Maria Ho and the WPT’s own Mike Sexton, Vince Van Patten and Lynn Gilmartin.
Prior to Friday’s poker tournament, select guests will participate in a private Q&A session with Woods, followed by a morning golf outing at the exclusive Shadow Creek golf course. The main event begins Saturday though, with a VIP reception featuring live and silent auctions filled with luxury items and one-of-a-kind experiences. An intimate benefit concert concert, presented by ACURA, headlines the evening and is followed by an epic post-party celebration at MGM Grand’s Producers Pool.
The 19th annual Tiger Jam will certainly be the perfect start to the Las Vegas summer poker schedule and more information on the Tiger Jam can be found here.
