The benefiting charity is Injured Riders Fund for Road 2 Recovery, an organization founded partly by Jimmy Button, a Supercross professional who injured his back in an accident and is now finding a way to help others with the same ailments through poker.

“The past couple of years have been especially difficult for industry riders,” said Button in a press release. “Since my own recovery, I’ve dedicated my life to helping professional AMA licensed Motocross and Supercross members sustaining career-ending injuries with financial, motivational, emotional, and spiritual support.”

Players can preregister for the tournament online and find more information on the tournament at the road2recovery website. The event is sponsored in part by Card Player.
