The Friends of the IDF (FIDF) are hosting a national charity poker event online on May 2, on Faded Spade Virtual Poker.
The event, in which all proceeds will be donated to the soldiers, will feature 4-time WSOP bracelet winner and former IDF Golani Brigade officer Eli Elezra, New York Times Bestselling author Maria Konnikova, and more.
Though I’ve tried mightily to maintain my regular poker writing routine, I have been unsuccessful. The plain fact is that I can’t help but be affected by the war raging between Israel, where I live, and Hamas. I ask you, dear readers, to please indulge me as I describe what it’s been like for my bubble to burst. I hope my words strike a chord with you and that you’ll achieve a better understanding of what it’s been like to live under the constant threat of terror. Above all, I hope this conflict ends soon such that life can get back to normal.
