Phil Hellmuth To Emcee Another Tiger Woods Charity Poker Tournament

14-Time Bracelet Winner To Call Action For $11K Buy-In


Poker legend Phil Hellmuth will once again emcee Tiger’s Poker Night, an annual charity poker tournament hosted by the World Poker Tour.

This year’s event is slated for April 29 at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino Las Vegas. According to a press release, cards will be in the air in front of the KÀ Theatre at approximately 7:15 p.m. PST.

The $11,000 buy-in will feature some of poker’s greatest players, as well as celebrities with a passion for poker. Additionally, the World Poker Tour’s own Vince Van Patten and Lynn Gilmartin will be playing.

Prizes for the participants include a round of golf with Woods, pro-am playing spots in premier PGA TOUR events and other unique, high-end items.

Last year, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said that Woods was a “sore winner” after busting him. Woods and Cuban were seated next to each other in the $10,000 buy-in tournament, which was then held at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
