Sat., March 6, starting at 10 a.m., celebrities and poker pros will mingle at Caesars Palace to play poker for NBC’s Heads-Up Poker Championship. Slated to play are Don Cheadle, Orel Hershiser, Jennifer Tilly, Annie Duke, Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chen, Phil Hellmuth, Phil Ivey and Daniel Negreanu.
You’re welcome to get out of bed early and try to see the spectacle on a first-come, first-served basis.
It appears that PokerStars will be adding a primarily online section of its Team Pro roster.
The employee that runs the official PokerStars twitter account recently tweeted the following:
“Team PokerStars Online Pro is a new branch of our team who’ll be playing mainly online not live. Anyone will be able to apply in due course.”
Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu re-Tweeted the message.
PokerStars already has some very respectable online players with Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Jason “treysfull21” Mercier and Hevad “RaiNKhaN” Khan all in the Team PokerStars Pro fold.
