CelebPoker is sponsoring Brian McFadden as well as several online qualifiers to compete in the European Poker Tour (EPT) Season 3 Dublin event which began Thursday.
McFadden is a former lead singer of the band Westlife. He has also had some success with a solo career and had a hit duet with singer and actress Delta Goodrem, who is one of the many other celebrity poker players at CelebPoker.
Several familiar faces besides McFadden have shown up to play in the €5,000 EPT Season 3 event in Dublin including Simon Trumper, the Hendon Mob, Andy Black, David Colclough, Greg Raymer, Roland De Wolfe, Mel Judah, Chris Moneymaker, Antanas "Tony G" Guoga, and more.
Players have missed their chance to win a seat to the EPT Dublin event through CelebPoker but there are still plenty of other tournaments to qualify for online and many other features and promotions on the site.
Besides the online tournaments, freerolls, practice tables, and playing with celebrities, CelebPoker has also formed a new poker league for its players. The site will host a series of free and regular tournaments for league members who can then see how they stack up against other players in the league.
They'll be competing for the tile of PokerLeague Master, and the ten best players will also share in a $2,500 prize pool every month.
