I play in different rooms, and I played with a professional player in tournaments a couple of times and cash games he used to be in the PokerStars team, now he has become the face of another poker room and sometimes holds games and answers questions and communicates with players, he is a good player and I even won against him, his name is (Eugene Katchalov)!
Hello,unfortunately Iīve never played with a celebrity..I only had the opportunity to meet the former PokerStars Team Pro Humberto Brenes during the 2013 LAPT(Latin American Poker Tour) in Lima.What a nice person!
re: Poker & Have you ever played with a celebrity?
Dude good question! I have never played with any known celebrity but I have played in home games where there was a celebrity there but we didn't fall at the same table. Sometimes there may be a celebrity playing with you and you don't even notice or notice!
Actually, just today I played in the Andy Milonakis Twitch Tournament on ACR and for the first hour of the game Andy was at my table. He didn't really play many hands, but when he did he seemed to play pretty tight.
Otherwise, no one else that I know of. You'd think in general it would be hard to know it was definitely a celeb though unless they are streaming the game.
I played in some kind of tournament at Full Tilt Poker and the TeamPro head reward was there. The tournament was with a low buy-in. I was supposed to have a T-shirt for it. But then Black Friday happened and I had to forget about it. I don’t remember who the player was.
Years ago I was in Vegas at the Hardrock and after their show " The Wallflowers" got to play with Jacob Dylan and a couple members of his band. Was pretty cool and it was just like playing with anyone else. Other then his body guards around him he was just like another player playing the game meaning no ego.
Only person I have played with that you might call a celebrity.
No, i did not play. If you want to play against celebrity, for sure you need to go and play more live games and i,m pretty sure if you will play often live games, it will be not so difficult to play it, because lots of popular people play poker.
I have played against many players on the Denver Broncos. We had a regular game that ran a little over two years. It was years ago during the height of the poker boom. Some where really good, others weren't. Best games I've ever played in, in both fun and profit! The guys I played against were all class acts and respectful. One of them became my nemesis, I don't want to give away names, but I lost the biggest pot of my life to him, I also won the biggest single pot of my life from him as well! I miss those days!
I used to play on full tilt when it was running. They had several pros that would play in certain tourneys and their avatar was of them. Not sure if it was for real or not but im guessing it was. They probably got paid to sit and play pretty good and it drew a lot of players. I never got to play head to head, they seemed to move a lot and they didn't play many hands.
