iPoker network launches celebrity bounty

Tuesday, 9 June 2009

Players on the iPoker network can bang heads with some of the biggest names in the game and bag a bounty or two while they’re at it. Qualifiers for the Celebrity Bounty Bash will take their seats in a star studded line up which is set to include former World Champions Scotty Nguyen and Jamie Gold, WSOP bracelet winner Marty Smith plus Tony G, Neil Channing and Montell Williams.

The winner of the tournament will take home a $20,000 first prize but the real action is set to come from the bounty hanging over each of the pros. Knock out one of the big names and a player will pick up a bonus package for next year’s WSOP Main Event worth $13,000.

Players who have qualified for this year’s Main Event via the iPoker network are eligible to take part in the qualifying tournament which takes at 8.30pm on 21st June. The top 21 finishers will go through to the tournament proper at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas on 9th July.
