Phil Galfond’s Run It Once Poker is getting into the Christmas spirit by raising money for charitable causes.
Double Up For Charity sees Run It once team up with Double Up Drive to host a 27-player Pro-Am SNG Select tournament for charity. This special event shuffles up and deal at 12:00 p.m. CET on December 19 and sees some of the world’s best-known players fight it out at the Run It Once tables.
Eighteen slots in the SNG shootout tournament are taken by established pros with the remaining nine seats going to the public. The top five donors at Double Up Drive’s website automatically receive a seat while a random draw from anyone who donated any amount decides the final four spots.
Run It Once is streaming the tournament via its Twitch channel where the legendary Norman Chad provides commentary alongside a number of special guests.
The following professionals are guaranteed to take their seats, with a handful of last-minute additions being in the pipeline.
- Phil Galfond

- Chance Kornuth
- Patrick Leonard
- Farah Galfond
- Kevin Rabichow
- Stephen Chidwick
