Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 11, 2007
Forget the Bellagio Fountains. All eyes will be on the gallons of champagne flowing from thousands of bottles of Dom Perignon this week as Phil Hellmuth celebrates the holidays with a party fit for a King of Spades.
Phil's Holiday Bash gets underway Tuesday night in Las Vegas and some of the biggest names in poker and entertainment are invited to what promises to be the most talked about celebration in Sin City's history.
Scott Ian of Anthrax and Sully Erna of Godsmack have already confirmed their intent to join the biggest names in poker for Hellmuth's holiday celebration. The already impressive guest list is growing by the hour as Hollywood celebrities and poker legends confirm their attendance.
If anyone in the world has something significant to celebrate this year, it's acclaimed poker professional Phil Hellmuth.
On June 11th, Hellmuth captured his record-shattering 11th WSOP bracelet after winning a $1,500 No Limit Hold'em event in Las Vegas and claiming $637,254. That win makes Hellmuth the only poker player to have earned 11 WSOP bracelets. Phil is also the youngest player to ever win the WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas and he holds the record for most WSOP cashes with a virtually untouchable 63.
Earlier this year, The UltimateBet pro launched Texas Hold'em 2007 with Phil Hellmuth, a follow-up release to the best selling mobile poker game, Texas Hold'em by Phil Hellmuth.
While most of Hellmuth's good fortune has been directly related to Texas Hold'em, one of his major victories happened away from the poker tables. After test-driving an UltimateBet sponsored racecar through the Nevada desert prior to the Main Event of the 2006 World Series of Poker, the poker pro crashed his vehicle off the Las Vegas strip. While the racecar was totaled, Hellmuth emerged unscathed.
Hellmuth's Holiday Bash is an invitation-only celebration and is not open to the public.
