Those were two of Jose Rodriguez’s favorite words, and once again, it’s the theme for the third annual Jose Rodriguez Charity Poker Run.

This year’s event is Saturday. The starting point is the Gashouse in Edwards, and registration begins at 9 a.m. Entry fee is $25 per hand, or two hands for $40. A nonplaying passenger is $10.
