Our friend Lisa Perry is looking for poker pros to take place in a first ever adult entertainment Casino Grand Opening at the Flying Aces Casino in beautiful Dearborn, Michigan.  And, yes, it’s legal!  Lisa is a model and former captain of the Indianapolis Colts cheerleading squad.   Ms. Perry will be hosting the event April 29, 2011. 

“I'm looking for 3-5 celebrities to play in the charity poker tournament supporting The Humane Society and Susan G. Komen For The Cure,” Lisa advised us. 

Provided for celebrities:

> Spending cash and applicable appearance fees.

> 2 round trip first class tickets (per talent)

> 2 night stay hotel stay at The Henry (formerly a Ritz Carlton, so will be a great stay for sure)

> Round trip sedan/limo transfer

> All meals and beverages during event

“It's going to ROCK!”

Male poker players who want to take off their shirts are also welcome.

Federated Sports and Gaming Announced Schedule Modification


Federated Sports and Gaming (FS+G) and the Palms Casino Resort announced today (Thursday March 31, 2011) a modified schedule for the first season of their professional poker league tournaments.  The format of the tournaments will remain the same, and, as previously announced, each event week will include a Pro-Am event, a charity tournament, and a $20,000 rake-free Main Event.

The decision to modify the schedule was made out of respect for the poker community at large and to make it easier for the top live event players to participate in as many events as possible.  The original schedule was set prior to the announcement of the 2011 dates for several other important live poker tournaments.

“The poker calendar is increasingly crowded and we will do our part to minimize, as much as possible, scheduling conflicts and the overlap among key live events,” said Annie Duke, Commissioner of the new Federated League.

As previously announced, all league events will take place at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
