Our four celebs are all poker newbies, so we’ll be taking them through three poker masterclasses to teach them the basics and get them ready for the big event. Each masterclass will be led by a different poker expert, and you’ll be able to follow all the action from the gang in our video Gallery.

The Experts

Simon Trumper

Simon Trumper is a professional poker player with over $1,500,000 in live tournament winnings and is also Club Director at the famous Dusk Till Dawn poker club. His distinguished list of accomplishments at the felt include winning series two of Late Night Poker, commentating alongside the Voice of Poker Jesse May, and taking 4th place in a $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Event at last year’s World Series of Poker for $267,700.

Carl Froch

Four-time super-middleweight world champion and partypoker ambassador Carl Froch is no stranger to competition. He also packs a mean punch at the poker tables and recently won the Beat the Boss tournament at Nottingham’s Dusk Till Dawn poker club which carried an impressive £10,000 prize pool.

Dave Alred MBE PhD

Dave Alred MBE PhD is widely acknowledged as one of the best coaches operating on the planet today. Dave, the author of the widely acclaimed book “The Pressure Principle”, has helped athletes to improve themselves far beyond their own personal expectations. His relentless drive and application towards performance and improvement has put him right at the very peak of his field. Dave will teach our contenders the best way to stay focused, training their brains to perform at their best under pressure.

After these lessons it’s time for The partypoker Big Bluff Final which will take place in Brighton’s Amex Stadium on July 24th. The quartet will compete until one winner emerges and claims the lion’s share of the £5,000 prizepool, with all proceeds going to charity.
