|Hollywood Poker Club, (hollywoodpoker.com) is about to hold a celebrity online poker tournament. The tournament is free to enter and open to members of the public, who can gain entry to the event through the website before 15th October. Celebrities will be taking part in the tournament and playing against registered non-celeb players. Keen poker players James Woods and Vince Van Patten will be taking part, alongside other stars still to be announced. |
Woods said of the tournament and his decision to play: 'It's a wonderful mix when you get celebrities interacting with their public. So I thought here's a website where I can interact with my fans and at the same time play, and hopefully beat, all my celebrity friends. For our fans it's great. How good would it be to have a tournament online, and if win now you're playing in a tournament with celebrities and you have a chance to bust them out!'
Van Patten, a commentator for the World Poker Tour added: Poker is taking Hollywood by storm! I've been playing big Hollywood home games for years, and there isn't an 'A List' celebrity that I haven't taken down. Hollywood Poker Club allows us all to play online together -- whether I'm on location filming the World Poker Tour or stars are shooting movies on sets around the world. I invite everyone to join us, because there's nothing better than bluffing a major actor.'
