Phil Hellmuth will be spending the majority of the next couple of months chasing yet more World Series of Poker bracelets but will be finding time to meet the fans. For a fee.
According to an advert at IfOnly.com, $16,700 will get you a one-on-one meeting with the 13-time WSOP winner and, wait for it, 'a drink, photo, and autograph with Phil'.Anyone who does take up Phil's offer won't just be able to pick the Poker Brat's brain. They'll also be helping a charity, in this case the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.Hellmuth isn't the only poker player offering his services on IfOnly.com. Antonio 'The Magician' Esfandiari 'will hang out with you and up to five of your friends for a VIP night out at the strip's most exclusive clubs'.The package includes 'a limo ride to and from your hotel, VIP entry to the clubs, and premium table service so you can party in extraordinary luxury ... Arrive in style, skip the lines, and chill with one of the best poker players on the planet'.The fee for this one is $35,800 or $5,970 per head. As you'd expect from poker's biggest ever tournament winner, the beneficiary from this event will be Guy Laliberte's Big One for One Drop charity.
