Last week Seth Shafer posted on the PartyPoker Blog comparing some of the best-known poker players with celebrities and we must say he found some very interesting matches. Freddy Deeb's resemblance to Danny DeVito is more than evident, so no surprises there, but some appear when you scroll down and find Phil Hellmuth compared with a giant hot dog (oh no, wait, it's actually the guy driving the hot dog!) or Humberto Brenes and Jimmy Fricke placed next to computer game heroes and cartoon characters.
Go to the PartyPoker Blog and see the poker world look alike celebrities and cartoon characters.
High Stakes Top 5
And talking about Party Blog's guests, Josef Rantamäk also shared his thoughts on the blog last week naming five poker pros who, in his opinion, are best at playing high stakes. We’d like to take this opportunity to spoil it for you by naming them. So, Josef Rantamäk's list of the top 5 high stakes poker players includes: Patrik Antonious, Tom Dwan, Erik Seidel, Phil Ivey, and Isildur1. Of course the names are not in the order Rantamäk placed them in. If you want to know who of the five is actually the best (again, in Rantamäk's opinion) go to the PartyPoker Blog and find out.
Play the Championship Challenge for $100,000
With just a few weeks left until the 2012 UEFA European football championship, PartyPoker is getting football fever and you are the one who's going to benefit from it. The promo starts today, May 14th, with $100,000 as the top prize. To reach the cash you need to climb the football stars' ladder – collect player cards, make up teams and groups, and finally the entire championship team of 64 players.
To play the PartyPoker Championship Challenge you need to sign up a new PartyPoker account, get the $50 FREE bonus and start playing real cash games and tournaments and collecting PartyPoints. For every 10 points earned, you will receive a card with one of the Euro 2012 star players. Every player card will reward you with an instant prize – a big-value freeroll ticket or a cash prize ranging from $1 to $20. But that's just for starters – collect player cards as you play cash games and buy-in into tournaments and you could unlock even bigger prizes.
A $50 cash prize is rewarded for collecting a four-player team from the same Euro 2012 country. Collect the entire group (A, B, C, or D) and you will be rewarded with a cash prize of up to $7,000! The main $100,000 award will be given away to everyone who collects 64 cards with four players from each Euro 2012 team.
The Championship Challenge on PartyPoker starts today and runs up until the end of the final game of the European football championship – July 1st. Start playing at PartyPoker to find out more about the Championship Challenge.
