I can’t help but thinking what life would be like to have the luck of [[Jamie_Gold|Jamie Gold]]. And no, I’m not just talking about the time he won $12 million using some of the luckiest bluff in the history of the WSOP. Instead I’m talking about how he has the good fortune of co-hosting the third annual Celebrity Poker Tournament at the Playboy Mansion.
Gold will host the event which takes place on May 17th with Khloe Kardashian from “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”. Not only will Jamie have Khloe by his side as long as she can stand him but he will also be amidst the usual crowd of curvy Playboy Bunnies. It’s almost enough to make a man jealous.
But not jealous in the sense that Gold actually has a chance with Khloe or the Bunnies (unless he brings some of his 2006 winnings along). More so of the simple fact that Gold, despite his consistently average poker ability, seems to remain one of the stars of the poker world.
Anyways, for all of you West Coast people, the Celebrity Poker Tournament is a fund raiser as well for the Urban Health Institute which means it’s general admission. The general admission is a little pricey at $500 and so is the buy-in for the tourney as it’s $1,500.
Obviously though, this isn’t your average $1,500 buy-in ($2,000 counting admission) considering that you’d be inches away from the Bunnies and will get to see celebrities such as Phil Ivey, comedian Anthony Anderson, Phil Laak, Super Bowl Champ and Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce, and others listed that I have no idea of who they are.
Plus anyone who attends can participate in a silent auction where one of the items up for bids is private poker lessons from Jamie Gold. Now this must be the real reason everyone is going. Expect some fierce bidding.
