While most of poker enthusiasts, especially professional of players are in Las Vegas to attend the World Championship which takes place now, this fact didn't stop the association Dealing for Duchenne to organize the 5th edition of its charity poker tournament Dealing for Duchenne. Indeed, the association relies on the generosity of poker players to support this charity to be held on June 2, 2012 at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California. It should be mentioned that the association's mission is to provide funds to support research for the treatment of muscular dystrophy by the Centre of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Note that muscular dystrophy is a disease that affects mainly children under five years. This disease creates many complications such as muscle degeneration that limits the lifetime of the victims. Indeed, children with this disease usually have an expectancy life of 25 years. Boys constitute most of the victims of this disease as they are currently numbered 3,600.

Several celebrities decided to play poker at this fundraiser. Among them are Michael Rappaport, Seal, James Tupper, Mandy Moore, Kelli Williams, Kara DioGuardi, Josh Malina, Clay Matthews, Oliver Hudson and Paul Reiser. The famous actor Joel Murray will act as emcee. The tournament will begin at 6 : 15 pm and other casino games will be also available to participants. Last year, the tournament enabled the DMD Centre to raise a sum of $ 1 million.
