excerpts:
Editorial: Let ‘em play (The Daily Tar Heel, 03/226/08 – NC)
“If you think your March Madness bracket pool is legal in North Carolina, don’t bet on it. According to N.C. law, any sort of gambling is illegal and is a Class 2 misdemeanor, regardless of whether it is for profit. Nourish International, a nonprofit with the goal of reducing poverty and hunger in less-developed countries, found this out the hard way last week when it had to cancel its annual Hold ‘Em For Hunger poker tournament.”

WSOP Champion Jerry Yang Helps Feed the Children (CardPlayer, 03/25/08)
“Yang and his wife no longer work and are able to spend days at home with their children. Yang has played in the occasional big buy-in tourney and has spent a good portion of his time keeping the promise he made to both God and the people of America through the cameras of ESPN when he pledged to donate 10 percent of his winnings to charitable causes. That goes for all his future poker winnings.”
