Ahh Venice, just when you thought the WPT Venice couldn’t get any better have we got some magical news for you.
Will Smith calls him “Absolutely stunning” whilst Chris Martin from Coldplay says he’s “the greatest” and his list of celebrity fans now reads like a ‘who’s who’ of the Hollywood elite. Diddy, Jay Z, Russell Brand, Gwyneth Paltrow, The Black Eyed Peas and Paris Hilton are but just a few select names who’ve raved about this amazing talent.
Okay but whom are we talking about? Well Ladies and Gents it’s the one and only Dynamo!
Walking on Water
You might remember him for his extraordinary feat of ‘walking on water’ on the River Thames in London with the Houses of Parliament acting as an iconic backdrop causing some lively street scenes and chaos rivaling that of the very last Beatles rooftop concert.
We’re of course more than excited to announce that on Tuesday the 7th February Dynamo will be amazing us all with a 90-minute performance that will feature intimate and up-close spectacular illusions for guests during the fabulous WPT Players Party. With never-before-seen illusions this will be an unforgettable experience.
And the magic doesn’t stop there folks. Fans of the WPT will have the chance to meet and greet the legendary Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten who will be co-hosting the globally televised WPT Venice Grand Prix event. On top of that the beautiful Royal Flush Girls will all be on location in Venice, Italy and of course no Party Poker event would ever be complete without the legendary Tony G making an appearance!
A cast to be reckoned with!
The WPT Season X tournament will run from the 6th to the 10th of February and will see a buy-in of €4,950. Hosted by Casinò de Venezia Ca’ Vendramin know to be the oldest operating casino in the world. There’s a lot of poker to play for when the WPT lands in Venice with a packed schedule featuring a wide range of side events including a €1,000+€100 PLO 8 Max game and several NLH tournaments.
Last year it was the local hero Italian Alessio Isaia who took down this exclusive tournament and walked away with a cool €380,000 in winnings, plus an entry into the $25,000 2012 WPT World Championship at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
