Americas CardRoom pro Katie Lindsay will be front and centre this week as she takes part in ACR’s Breast Cancer Awareness Charity tournament, a $10k GTD event that will be livestreamed on Twitch TV and see ACR donating up to $20,000 to charity.

Lindsay will be playing the special Breast Cancer Awareness Charity tournament on ACR tomorrow, Wednesday, October 12th at 4:30pm ET. to promote the work of the United Breast Cancer Foundation (UBCF).

With a guaranteed $10,000 prize pool and a buy-in of just $55, everyone is welcome to play, but for female entrants there is an additional bonus of a $55 ACR credit, effectively making the tournament a freeroll.

ACR has also promised to match entries up to $20k with a donation to the UBCF, who stated this week:

“We are proud to partner with Americas Cardroom this October for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Americas Cardroom is committed to supporting breast cancer patients and survivors.”

Katie Lindsay herself is looking forward to the charity tournament:

“I’m so happy to be able to support the United Breast Cancer Foundation thanks to the help of my friends and ACR. I love that they offer holistic approaches to healing and helping as many cancer survivors as possible,” said Lindsay this week.

ACR’s Head of Sponsorship, Mel Moser, said breast cancer statistics, which show that 300,000 women in the USA will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year alone, were a motivation for the company to get involved and offer support.

Moser explained:

“ACR wants to help change this statistic and alleviate the suffering that accompanies it. We are happy to support this tournament and think it will be a great event, and are excited for people to have fun while raising money for an excellent cause.”

The charity tournament will be livestreamed on TwitchTV. YouTuber and Influencer Nikki Limo will host the stream, with special guests expected to include Lindsay’s fellow ACR pro Ana Marquez and reality TV star and Playboy model Trishelle Cannatella.
