Caesars Palce Online Poker

Joining the rest of the Las Vegas Strip, Caesars Palace jumped into the 21st century world of poker when it brought back a poker room for its casino in late December. Spending $12 million to add a spacious poker room and separate tournament area, it seems Caesars is sparing nothing to allow poker players to enjoy their game in style! It is a remarkable comeback for the game of poker in the legendary casino, which quit spreading poker in the late 80's. So how do you open up a poker room as grand as this? You invite the cream of the poker world, add in an A-list group of celebrities, and put on a tournament on New Year's Eve!

Las Vegas socialite Nicky Hilton decided to introduce some of her friends to the game of poker through "The Celebrity online poker Challenge", which kicked off some high dollar action in the Caesars poker room. The buy-in for the event was $2,000 (with $200 juice) and was also a bounty tournament for those who could take down the celebrities and professionals who came to play as well.

Bright and early (11AM, to be exact!), 92 runners came to the line for the tournament, including Hilton, actress and World Series champion Jennifer Tilly, actress Shannon Elizabeth and a strong outpouring of online poker pros ready for battle. Phil "The Unabomber" Laak joined his lady Tilly at the tables as well as fellow pros Cyndy Violette, Chip and Karina Jett, 2004 WSOP runner-up David Williams, 2005 WSOP Tournament of Champions winner Mike Matusow and Antonio "The Magician" Esfandiari, among others.

With $2,000 bounties on each of the celebrities and poker players, there was some potential for money to be made. Nicky Hilton showed her mettle at the tables as she lasted about two hours into the event, but there was one bounty that went unclaimed. Shannon Elizabeth was able to outlast the field and take down the first place prize out of the $120,000 pool at pnline poker games!
