WPT Celebrity Invitational

Posted on March 1, 2009 by under Poker.    


As you know, a bunch of our poker buddies went to LA this weekend to participate in the WPT Celebrity Invitational. Live updates are available on the WPT web site (thanks for the info, Dill) so we were able to keep up with how the players are doing. Of course, Sunny sent some periodic updates also.

So here’s the schedule..
FEB 28 12 PM Player registration begins.
6 PM Red carpet arrivals and cocktail hour.
7 PM Tournament begins.
$200 re-buys for the first three levels.
MAR 1 3 PM Tournament resumes for all remaining players.
Play ends when only six players remain.
MAR 2 4 PM TV final table taping begins for the remaining six players.

Sunny was knocked out on the first day, but Scott kept the dream alive. He was 12th in chip stack, just behind Phil Laak, at the end of day one (see below).

Scott is 12th in Chips after Day 1

Incidentally, Scott actually outlasted Phil. Scott was eventually knocked out in 18th place. Not a bad finish considering a starting field of 433 poker players. Anyway, I can’t wait to hear all the stories and see all the pictures!
