Bernard Lee gives away two WSOP event buy-ins to radio show listeners

Professional poker player and media personality Bernard Lee has chosen two amateur poker players to each receive a $777 buy-in to a World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet event in Las Vegas, Nevada next month. The buy-ins were among 20 prizes Lee distributed in celebration of the eighth anniversary of The Bernard Lee Poker Show.

“I am extremely excited to be able to make these players’ dreams a reality,” Lee said. “Nothing can compare with the experience of playing in a WSOP bracelet event. I know this is an adventure both players will always remember.”

Lee initially partnered with Blaycation, a specialty travel company that combines individuals’ bucket lists with unique vacations, to give away one $777 buy-in. Earlier this year, Lee was named Blaycation’s spokesperson. The One Step Closer Foundation, however, offered to sponsor another $777 buy-in after learning of the success of both Blaycation and Lee’s show.

“Bernard has been a loyal supporter of The One Step Closer Foundation for years,” said Jacob Zalewski, the foundation’s president and CEO. “Our foundation makes dreams come true for those individuals who are living with Cerebral Palsy. With our upcoming poker charity event, we felt it would be perfect to provide a WSOP buy-in for an individual to fulfill their poker dreams.”
