PokerStars.net, the world's largest poker site, hosted the biggest party of World Series at Rain Nightclub in the Palms Hotel and Casino resort in Las Vegas.

A host of celebrities from the worlds of sports, entertainment and poker joined with over one thousand PokerStars players to watch a sensational live performance by hip-hop superstar, Nelly. Stars including Jordan Farmar of the LA Lakers, WWE star Torrie Wilson, along with actors Jason Alexander and Lou Diamond Phillips, joined World Series of Poker Champions Peter Eastgate, Joe Hachem, Greg Raymer and Chris Moneymaker on a glittering red carpet.

Throughout the party at the exclusive Rain nightclub, PokerStars WSOP qualifiers mingled with members of Team PokerStars Pro including poker legends such as Daniel Negreanu and Barry Greenstein, as well as up and coming stars including ElkY, Dario Minieri and recent bracelet winner and new PokerStars signing, Jason Mercier.

PokerStars VIP guests mixed with disco stilt-walkers and candy girls whilst podium dancers performed around the arena. Aerialists suspended high above the packed dance floor kept the crowd entertained before Nelly took to the stage and performed an epic set that spanned his greatest hits and showcased new material.

With a packed guest list, huge crowds and a live performance by Nelly, all following last year's stellar appearance by Dita Von Teese, PokerStars has once again proven that not only does it provide more players than anyone else to the World Series of Poker, but it also throws the best party in Las Vegas.
