This weekend the World Poker TourÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Celebrity Invitational is set to take place in Los Angeles at the Commerce Casino. The tournament will run on the 20th and 21st of February and will have a star studded line up raising money for Chrysalis a nonprofit organization which helps the homeless and economically disadvantaged to find jobs.
The World Poker Tour has invited over one hundred people to compete in the charity event. The list of confirmed participants is quite long and is full of several actors. Teri Hatcher, Jesse Metcalfe, Jamie Lynn Sigler, Chris Kattan, Marlon Wayans, Ethan Embry, Matthew Lillard, Chris Masterson, Danny Masterson, Shannon Elizabeth and Eddie Cibrian are just a few of the players invited to participate.
And of course no poker tournament would be complete without poker pros. The poker pros that have been confirmed for the event are: Phil Laak, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Antonio Esfandiari, J.C. Tran, Mark Seif, Jennifer Tilly, Howard Lederer, David Pham, Andy Bloch, Erik Seidel, Bill Edler and Allen Cunningham.
The event will kick off with a red carpet walkway and a VIP cocktail party on the 20th. The tournament will begin just one hour later at 8pm. Players will be able to purchase $200 re-buys during the first two forty minute levels. The re-buys will go directly to the Chrysalis organization. Players who make it through day one will come back on day two to compete to the final six players.
The final six will come back on March 3rd to participate in the final table which will be taped for a future television broadcast. The tournament will have a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool and will offer a $25,000 seat to the WPT championship which will take place in April.
