Congratulations to the 2017 Final Table Winners who were: 1st – Doug Bortner, 2nd – Anthony Tedesco, 3rd – Chris Gibson, 4th – Leszek Markowski, 5th – Marco Huijgen, 6th – Vincent Teutonico, 7th – Ben Jacobson, 8th – Nadav Gottesman, 9th – Scott Seamon, 10th – Tiffany Herlands, and to the 2017 “All-In” Award recipient Goumba Johnny Sialiano for all he does for the tournament and for a being such a great supporter for over 10 years.

The P4L committee appreciates the support of all the guests, supporters and sponsors including ZYR Vodka, The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, Sierra Nevada, Budweiser, NY Knicks, NY Rangers, NY Yankees, Pro Poker Gear, Crazy Cups, Blast Billiards, PokerDivas, GoCharity, Poker Players Alliance, and many more. The event could not happen without their support.

Because of the P4L supporters, we are proud to say that donations over the years have truly made it a difference in the advancement in paralysis research. The Buoniconti Fund and Miami Project are continuously making tremendous strides towards a cure as the result of this support. The 13th Annual Poker4Life™ Charity Poker Championship Event will again be held in spring of 2018.
