The Prevent Cancer Foundation’s 7th-Annual Bad Beat on Cancer (BBOC) Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament was held on May 3, 2011 where reporters from Politico were at the the event to interview attendees Sen. Mark Begich, Rep. Joe Barton, and Rep. Bobby Scott who came out to show off their poker skills in support of the cause. In the article by Matt Sobocinski and Karin Tanabe, you can read what each Congressmen had to say about playing the game and contributing to cancer prevention and early detection.

Politico also caught up with Prevent Cancer Foundation Executive Vice President and COO Jan Bresch who said that the event has raised 3.4 million dollars since its inception, $130,000 of which was raised at the 2011 event.
