Poker star Phil Hellmuth, basketball Hall of Famer Bill Laimbeer, and LPGA legend Annika Sorenstam will compete against some of the biggest names in golf in the Chipping All-In charity poker tournament.

Starting today at noon PST, the live online Texas Hold’em tournament will raise proceeds for the MGM Resorts Foundation’s Employee Emergency Grant Fund, which provides employees and their immediate families with short-term relief in making payments or to meet obligations during unexpected hardships and emergencies. The fund is designed to assist those impacted by the coronavirus, including full-time employees, on-call employees and those facing layoff, separation or furlough.

Fans can tune into Chipping All-In on Twitch (Twitch.tv/AllStarPass) and YouTube (YouTube.com/AllStarPass). Additionally, the tournament will be broadcast live on PokerGo.com as well as GOLFTV’s Twitter and Facebook pages. Audience members can make real-time donations at www.mgmresorts.com/ChippingAllin.
