Poker players from around the world dream of playing in this, the biggest event in the industry, although few ever will.
CelebPoker.com is famed for being involved in “celebrity poker games.” They are the poker room responsible for providing the action backstage at both the 2005 World Music Awards and American Music Awards shows in Las Vegas. Setting the bar even higher this year, CelebPoker.com will be turning to the WSOP main event and placing their “pocket ace” Brian McFadden right in the action. It is likely that Brian will be one of many notable celebrity players who are looking to make their mark on the poker world. In their midst will be seasoned poker professionals, long time tournament players and the new breed of online enthusiasts. While Brian certainly has all the tools to remain calm under pressure, he will have his work cut out for him making it through the competition.
The 2006 World Series of Poker is being held at the Reno Casino in Las Vegas. Like the past few years events there will be massive press and media coverage surrounding the tournament.

Having sold 30 million records and picked up twelve UK number one hits with his previous band; Brian’s passion for making music is undiminished and invigorating.
