Organizers of the poker-for-charity tent on the west bank of the Flats are doubling their bets this year.

Jacobs Investments Inc. says its all-volunteer, Texas Hold 'Em tournaments will start next week and stretch into October -- 24 four-day events, almost double the number from last year.

The goal is $1 million for charity, more than twice the cash raised in 2005 at the Nautica Entertainment Complex, said David Grunenwald, vice president of development for Jacobs."
