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.
