Americas Cardroom Issues Official Statement On Rumored $5 Million GTD Promotion.

San Jose, Costa Rica – August 1, 2015 – The old saying goes that ‘all publicity is good publicity’, but some rumors floating around the internet have caused online poker room, Americas Cardroom, to make an official statement and set the record straight.

It all started on Friday afternoon when word started spreading in online poker forums about a ‘$5 Million Guaranteed’ promotion that was being offered by Americas Cardroom. It was said that this promotion, which included five separate $1,000,000 GTD Texas Hold’em tourneys in September and October, was a done deal.

Management from Americas Cardroom was contacted for comment and wishes it to be known that the news circulating around the online poker forums was leaked information without official authorization.

“We’re happy that online poker players are interested in our tournaments, but the recent chatter in the online poker forums is not official policy yet. It is interesting however, how difficult it is to keep this kind of big news under wraps,” said Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “All that being said, the $5 Million Guranteed promo is something that we will announce on Monday if our upcoming Million Dollar Sunday is a success.”

The Million Dollar Sunday is the signature tournament offered by Americas Cardroom. They’ve had two successful ones already this year, with the next coming this Sunday, August 2nd at 3pm ET. There is a $1,000,000 GTD prize pool, with $200,000 earmarked for the first place winner.

Added Harris, “We’re really excited about this next Million Dollar Sunday, with all our internal forecasts predicting a great turnout. Visit our site on Sunday as there could be that $5 Million GTD promo announcement after all.

Local ministry makes Christmas brighter for kids in need

 

Kim Everett | December 29, 2012
Local children’s ministry, C.O.O.L. (Children of our Lord) Kids, founded by NaKina Talbert and her husband Tom, recently hosted a Christmas party for 105 underserved children.  This was the fourth Christmas celebration hosted by the Talberts, but it was the first one held in Garland. 
In all, 210 children were served this holiday season, which includes gifts delivered to a group of Taiwanese refugee children. 
The couple recently moved its ministry to South Garland after research showed that numerous programs serve inner city children, but there aren’t many in the suburbs. “When a family is living in poverty they are typically in survival mode,” Talbert said. “They have little time or energy to focus on their children’s spiritual, educational or emotional needs.”
C.O.O.L. Kids is a Christian ministry that children can attend Saturday mornings and get a hot breakfast, have Bible study, receive mentoring, do arts and crafts, play games and get one on one attention. Talbert believes that this shows them that people care and gives them hope for a better future. The children can also get free used clothing and shoes, school supplies, and a take home lunch, as most of them are on the assisted lunch program during the week but may only eat one meal a day on weekends.
Elks Lodge #1984 provided the space for this year’s party.  “This is the first year the Elks have been involved but it will not be the last,” Talbert said.
The organization had lost its venue four weeks before the party and the members of the Elks Lodge offered their facility.  After hearing more about what the children’s ministry was doing, the lodge had toy and food drives and collected more than 200 toys and many pounds of food.  They also supplied volunteer staff, raised monetary donations, provided pizza for the party, along with storage and drop off  for donations, and gave lots of moral support.   The Elks have also agreed to let C.O.O.L. Kids use the lodge for its weekly ministry as well as for other events.
The families that benefit from the party are either living in section 8 or government subsidized housing or in shelters. They register each child at least a month in advance. “The Lord brings them to me…I don’t know how else to describe it other than that,” Talbert said.
Talbert found out about a section 8 complex near the lodge and went to speak to the manager.  “When I walked in the office she was talking with someone about how there were 40 families in the complex that would not have a Christmas this year,” she said. “It’s a God thing.”
A complex that houses Taiwanese refugee families also contacted her and asked for help.  “It took us from over 100 on our list to over 200,” she said. “But we knew if God brought them to us then He would provide, and He sure did.”
All the children at the party received a bag of gifts and a Build A Bear and enjoyed making Christmas ornaments, decorating cookies, and having their picture taken with Santa.
The ministry received lots of help from Firewheel Church families who sponsored more than 150 of the kids’ wish lists; Allen’s Norton Elementary School; Plano’s Lifepoint Church; Advantage Storage and Walgreen’s, both in Sachse; Wounded Warriors of Texas; residents in Woodbridge; Terri Jackson and Control Manufacturing; Kathy Senase and her team at AT&T; and the Bys family who raised 125 Build A Bears.  They are also grateful for the help of Rhanda and Nicole Holden and Patrick and Chrissy Wallis and family, along with countless other volunteers too numerous to mention.
“But mostly, thanks to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for allowing us to serve Him,” Talbert said.
