July 19 Super High Roller Shootout
Playing online Poker can definitely teach you a thing or two but nothing compares to the actual environment, feel, and excitement of a live poker session. On July 23rd, Poker Central announced the likes of Hank Azaria, Don Cheadle, Kevin Pollak, Brad Garrett, and Norn Macdonald were preparing to play hard-ball at this year’s Super High Roller Celebrity Shootout that premiered on TV this July 29th.
Hollywood’s finest will go head to head with some of Poker’s greatest stars, like Vanessa Selbst, Daniel Negreanu, Doyle Brunson, Phil Hellmuth, and Antonio Esfandiari in a race to win the $1 million prize money. The tourney took place on June 27 and 28 in Las Vegas. CEO of Poker Central enticed the public by affirming that “These Hollywood celebrities are about to face off in the hardest game of their life, for more than they’ve ever played for before, against some of the world’s best players.”
This event will showcase the No Limit Hold’Em poker style of playing and will have the two sides playing until one expert pro and one celebrity pro are left. Of course that once it’s down to the two best players, there will be a Showdown where the winner will be determined from a best-of-three move.
There are no second places in this tournament and so, the only one leaving with prize money will be the winner. This lucky player will take home the $1 million grand prize. Although the celebrities come prepared with a few Emmys, Golden Globes, a Stand-up humour, and even some Oscars, it does not mean that they will have the same success on the poker scene.
