It’s the biggest celebrity tournament in the world and PartyPoker is giving its players a chance to grab a seat for just a handful of PartyPoints.

The World Poker Tour Celebrity Invitational is set to take place Feb. 20-21 in L.A. and PartyPoker will give away a total of 15 packages worth $3,000 each in a qualifying final on Jan. 31.

“This tournament will be filled with Hollywood stars and poker gods,” said a PartyPoker spokesman.

“The event is invitation only and can get you on the exclusive guest list. To win a package for the WPT Celebrity Invitational all you need to do is use PartyPoints to enter the daily qualifiers.”

PartyPoker is running two daily qualifiers, one of which costs 10 PartyPoints and sees the top three players qualify for the final. The second will cost you 25 PartyPoints with the top 15 advancing to the final.

Now in its fourth year the WPT Celebrity Invitational has seen celebrities like Paris Hilton, Michael Vartan, Don Cheadle, Jon Hamm, Ray Romano, Mena Suvari, Jason Alexander and Brad Garrett trade the red carpet for the felt at the Commerce Casino.

The WPT is guaranteeing a prize pool of $200,000 for this year’s Invitational with an extra $25,000 seat in the WPT World Championship in April going to the winner.

This year the tournament will offer $200 rebuys in the first two levels with all proceeds from the rebuy period going towards the Chrysalis organization, a group that assists economically disadvantaged and homeless individuals.
