Using Poker to change our Veterans’ lives!
I am Ted Possible, a believer of all things within one’s control are possible and I am on a mission to prove it.
When I was in preschool one of my teachers tried to tell me her idea of what was impossible. She told me that I could not touch the clock on the wall because it was too high for me, so it was impossible. But, by God, I stacked those desks and chairs and touched that clock!
My interest for Poker started with my dad. I would accompany him to tournaments at our local community center. It was love at first sight. I found the game intriguing, enjoyed meeting new people and most of all I wanted to prove it was possible to be a WINNER at the game.
Throughout my life I had a burning passion to prove the possible. I was born legally blind and told I would never drive yet I drive today. I dropped out of college to pursue a career in technology. Then I decided that it was possible to go back and get my Computer Science degree which I successfully did in record time of a little over 6 months despite major hardship and catastrophic loss during that time.
I was out with my family at a steak restaurant celebrating when I noticed some servicemen and decided to thank them for their service, but did not feel it was enough. At that moment I felt a yearning to pay for their entire meals so I did. Ever since then I have been looking for ways to help Veterans. So I decided with my love for poker and with my winnings why not donate a portion to support our Veterans! This has become my life’s mission. I will continue to help the Veterans through poker and will never stop for as long as I continue to play.
Many people believe poker is a game that is played by the selfish. I am on a mission to prove that wrong. The game has selfless players like myself who are willing to help our Veterans by donating a portion of our winnings to support them.
