Charity Poker Night for Greater Vancouver Food Bank Fundraiser


Wednesday, December 15, 2021 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm



Food Bank Fundraiser and Charity Poker Night is a go thanks to our friends at DigiBC and AMPD Technologies. This year’s event will be online/virtual and combines the fun of a FREE to play charity poker evening with a pre-holiday Zoom get-together. It’s all in aid of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, and donations can be made anytime at https://vfd.foodbank.bc.ca/fundraiser/CDM2021

We are suggesting a minimum donation of $25 if you would like to play poker but it is all on the honour system and we understand that times are tough for some right now. So, come along regardless and do what you can! Several awesome prizes have been donated by our industry friends and colleagues.

Zoom Session will be open at 6 pm (pt) for pre-game social and some intros or refreshers to No Limit Hold-em Poker


Meeting ID: 841 0527 6420
Passcode: kK9g8x

Official tournament starts at 7 pm in the POKERSTARS application. Make sure you have both joined the club AND registered for the tournament. Get updates here: https://fb.me/e/2DZLt6Lij

How to Register for the Tournament (there are 2 important steps)

The tournament is taking place on PokerStars using Play Money, so it's free to join and play, and we encourage all players (new to experienced) to join us. We highly suggest that if you don't have an account set up, you follow all the steps below before the tournament so you are ready to play on December 15th!


On your Desktop - Go to http://www.pokerstars.com (Mobile users, see set up directions below)

  • Click ‘Join’ in the top right-hand corner of your screen
  • Select your country of residence
  • Enter your email address
  • Create a username (please keep it PG-13!)
  • Enter a password
  • Click ‘Next’
  • Consent to the terms
  • Click ‘Create Account’
  • You will get an email from Stars Support to the email address you entered asking you to confirm your account
  • Click ‘Confirm’ in that email
  • Download 'Poker Stars' software client & install it


Once you have created an account for Poker Stars and downloaded the Poker Stars software client:

  1. Open the main poker lobby in Poker Stars, then click on the Home Games tab
  2. Click the 'Join a Poker Club' button
  3. Enter the following Club ID number: 4820340
  4. Enter the following Invitation Code: cdmpoker2021 Or launch this URL: pokerstars://home-games/invite/4820340/cdmpoker2021

Please note, it may take some time to set up your account, download and install the software client and be added to the poker club, so we suggest you set everything up before the night of the tournament.

You will need to have 20,000 Play Money Chips in order to enter our Charity Tournament. When you first create an account with PokerStars, you will be given 35,000 Play Money Chips. Note that PokerStars will award you 15,000 Play Money Chips every time you log in (with 4 hour intervals) so if you happen to use up your Play Money Chips prior to registering for the tournament, you can either log in a couple of times to collect your log in bonuses, or you can spend a small amount of money to buy some Play Money Chips.

Go to the Club Lobby and find the Food Bank FundRAISER Tournament scheduled for December 15th at 19:00 PST. Click ‘Register’ and agree to use 20,000 Play Money Chips to register. You’re all set! Please note that if you are unable to make the tournament after registering, we strongly request that you unregister otherwise the system will enter you into the tournament and you will be sitting out the entire tournament with the system just playing your blinds.
