I'd like to point out that the war in Iraq has cost the American taxpayers over 1.4 trillion dollars and is estimated to cost over 4 trillion by the time it ends. 1.4 trillion dollars could have GIVEN EVERY SINGLE HUMAN on the earth access to clean water forever . Where are our priorities and why hasn't there been more priority given to ending the war both in Iraq and Afghanistan? It's just such a shame and an embarrassment as a human being that our priorities are so discombobulated, talk about a "wall st/big business" government...shameful.

Lets help and assist here at home, not harm and destruct half war around the world.

I'll be cheering for Guy because you know he'll donate his winnings to this great cause.....show'em how its done frenchy! Sacre Bleu!

so he wants to have people give money to his own charity and play in the event as well...can you say self-serving and conflict of interest, what a crock.

I didn't come to play, I came to take it!

Let's really make the prize pool big. Let's make it a $1,000,000 rebuy event.

Love that this is a charity event but hate that this is even considered for a wsop bracelet and no effing way should the winner of this tourney be considered for the all time money list
