Stars return for DoylesRoom bounty tournament

Doyle Brunson

Stargazers have an opportunity sit at the virtual felt with a couple of celebrities as Nicky Hilton and Jamie-Lynn Sigler return to DoylesRoom to participate in the Celebrity Bounty Tournament this week.

The pair of stars will join the April 23 Celebrity Bounty Poker Tournament, which starts at 9:30 p.m. ET.

The bounty tournament takes place every Wednesday at DoylesRoom, giving online poker players a chance to play against some of poker's best as well as against celebrities. Often Doyle Brunson himself will take on the tournament, as will Mike Caro, "The Mad Genius of Poker."

Hilton, who is the younger sister of Paris Hilton and heiress to the Hilton Hotel Empire, has participated in DoylesRoom events in the past. According to a press release from DoylesRoom, she is also a successful model with a fledgling fashion line and is quickly gaining recognition as a "skillful and sexy poker hostess."

Best known for her role as Tony Soprano's daughter, Meadow, on The Sopranos, Sigler has been spotted at the poker tables on occasion as well.

Aside from the chance to play against some stars and perhaps some pros, the Celebrity Bounty Tournament offers up a chance at some big money. The celebrities will have a bounty on their heads of $500.

The bounty is awarded to the person who knocks a celebrity out of the tournament. If a single player knocks out two of the bounties, he will be awarded $5,000.

The big money, however, is reserved for a player who manages to knock out all three bounties. That's worth $25,000 at DoylesRoom.

On top of that, there is the prize pool built from the $27.50 buy-in, giving players all sorts of opportunities to walk away a winner.

First-time Bounty Tournament players can also play the tournament for free. They'll need to pay for the tournament up front, but the buy-in will be refunded to them once it's over.

Registration for the April 23 tournament at DoylesRoom is currently open.
