What: Cory Lidle Celebrity Poker Tournament
Where: Palms Casino, Las Vegas
When: This weekend
Buy In: $1200
Yes, that’s right. This weekend is Cory Lidle’s Second Annual Celebrity Poker Tournament with the proceeds benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Players who’ve already anted up include: Jermaine Dye, Jason Giambi, David Wells, Eric Chavez, Adam Dunn, Bret Saberhagen and Phillies Mike Lieberthal, Jimmy Rollins, and Randy Wolf. The inaugural tournament was a huge success and this one should be too. I wonder if Pat Gillick is participating. For a guy who can’t turn up aces, I don’t think he’d have a shot at winning.
