Chris Harrison, a television emcees and reality star, would also be assisting Hellmuth at the event. The event is being hosted to raise funds which would be sent to One Heart Source and Wounded Warrior Project. The tournament would be held as a bash before the Oscars.
The gala red carpet event would be held on Sunday. The buy in packages for the tournament would start from five hundred dollars for two thousand chips on the table. The amount would go up to $2,500 which would allow an entrant to play the High Roller Stack and have a total of fifteen thousand chips with them. Add-ons and re-buys would also be possible for the players so that the money flowing in for the charity services keeps going up.
There would be different prizes and raffles handed out to the winners as well as small amount cash rewards. There would also be an entry prize in the World Series of Poker Main Event as one of the grand prizes in this event. Phil Hellmuth, who is host for the event, is a star in his own right as he has won the WSOP championship thirteen times. His earnings from live tournaments are over eighteen million.
