Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) May 10, 2006
Timothy Poster and Tom Breitling, former owners of the Golden Nugget, and leads in The Casino reality show, will play in the CEO Poker event at The Palms, Oct 22-27, for the title of Chairman of Poker.
Poster and Breitling, the two 34 year old millionaires, revolutionized the travel industry by creating the “merchant model” for hotel and vacation packages reservations with Travelscape.com, and later sold it to expedia.com. Together, they turned the company into one of the largest consumer-direct hotel room wholesale distribution systems throughout the world.
CEO participants will have the opportunity to win the title of Chairman of Poker and a stylish Chairman of Poker ring that will be awarded to the winner of the championship tournament. The Palms Casino Resort & Maloof Productions produces Celebrity Poker on Bravo and is home of the Real Word Series in Vegas.
William Peraza, JR., CEO of CEOpoker, and Maria Gomez, co-founder and President of CEO Poker, natives of Miami, Florida, developed the concept of the CEO Poker event. Peraza and Gomez saw a need for an event that highlighted some of the most powerful CEOs in the US playing against one another in poker, in the best hotel in Vegas--The Palms Resort and Casino.
The Palms was chosen to host the prestigious event that will cater to over 200+ CEOs from the world of the Internet, Industry, real estate, and Fortune 500 companies, ready to face each other over the green felt of the poker table for the title of Chairman of Poker.
“We are excited to have Tim and Tom be a part of the event. They are great poker players and businessmen,” says Peraza. “This promises to be an exciting event with players from all over the world in attendance.”
Instead of networking on the golf greens, CEOs will compete over the green felt of the poker table at The Palms, in No Limit Texas Holdem. Poker is better than golf because it is a level playing field among men and women. Only your ability to bluff, fold, and win, separates the boys from the girls. Another reason poker is so popular among CEOs is the game itself. There is an element of constant danger that CEOs thrive on, where you can go out on any one hand.”
Instead of a new breed of golf players, a new breed of poker stars will be born at The Palms—day traders, dotcom millionaires, high powered women, online poker hotshots, and mathematical geniuses.
