Adrian Peterson to Host Charity Poker Tournament During Super Bowl Weekend

By Ian Hiaring, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer

Adrian Peterson PokerWith the Minnesota Vikings failing to make the NFL playoffs this season, All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson has turned his attention to hosting the first annual Adrian Peterson All In Celebrity Poker Tournament.  Taking place in Dallas, during the weekend of Super Bowl XLV, the tournament is slated to include many NFL players and former UB Pro Phil Hellmuth.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Peterson’s charity, The All Day Foundation.  The All Day Foundation was created in 2008 with a mission to inspire hope, enrich lives, and build a better future for kids. Inspired by a nickname given to Adrian Peterson as a child, the “All Day” Foundation supports several youth enrichment programs through notable organizations, such as, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities and the Special Olympics Minnesota. The Foundation also supports causes driven by other organizations like the Tackle Cancer Foundation.

A few of the NFL players scheduled to appear include Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams and Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers.  Of course, if the Bears defy all odds and wind up playing in the Super Bowl two days later, it’s unlikely that Peppers will be in attendance.

The tournament takes place Friday, February 4th at The Southside Music Hall at Gilley’s of Dallas, and there are two options for players wishing to participate.  For $300, you start with $2500 in poker chips, and for $500 you can start with $5000 in chips.  In addition to this, spectator tickets can be purchased for $75-$150.

According to the event’s website, a World Series of Poker seat will be available as a prize and there will be more than $25,000 in prizes available, but details on the rest of the prizes available have yet to be announced.
