The Golden Nugget in Downtown Las Vegas is starting its Grand AGEN138 Series tomorrow with a charity event called Card, Celebrities, and a Cause to benefit the Montel Williams Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. Poker stars scheduled to attend include Daniel Negreanu, Scott Fischman, Allen Cunningham.
David Singer has had an impressive poker career with a number of WSOP and WPT second-places finishes, the $25,000 Heads-Up World Championship, and a ninth-place finish in the WSOP Main Event in But until today there.
Players at the World Series of Poker can pay for access to a special VIP lounge for the duration of the tournament series. Harrah’s will donate funds raised from the cost of admission to the Nevada Cancer Institute.
The 2008 WSOP began May 30 and continues until July 14 when the final table is determined for the Main Event.
All during that time, participants who ante up for access to the VIP lounge will have access to food, beverages, a masseuse and even a separate game.
The final two satellites are scheduled for Friday and Sunday at 6 p.m. ET, and PartyPoker still has plenty of ways for players to win their way in for as little as $1.
The WSOP satellites have a $540+$40 buy-in. The Friday satellite will guarantee three WSOP packages and the Sunday tournament will guarantee another two WSOP packages.
Plenty more could be awarded, however, as PartyPoker will add a $13,500 prize package for every 25 players in the event.
Duke fractures pelvis, heads to WSOP late
Annie Duke has been training the past few months to run the 26.2 mile Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in Sand Diego to help raise money for Darfur through Ante Up for Africa.
Duke is no stranger to running and spent a lot of time training for the event up until about three months ago. During a 16 mile run a few months ago, she developed a sharp pain in her pelvis around the 11th mile.
“Of course, because I am an idiot, I kept running till mile 16,” Duke wrote in her blog back in May.
Another final table full of professional players took their seats today at the Rio to decide the fourth bracelet event of the 2008 World Series of Poker. Familiar faces from the live, online, and international arenas were present and accounted for in the strong lineup.
David Singer has been on quite the hotstreak since he won the Caesars Palace Classic last October. Though he has been known to fly a bit under the radar, Singer has consistently put up solid results year after year and has roughly $4 million in lifetime earnings to show for it.
