Ultimate Players Party

Players participating in the 2008 Canadian Open Poker Championships have one heck of party to look forward to.

The Maxim/Coors Light "Ultimate Players Party" will be presented by HeadsUp Entertainment Inc on March 5th and will kickoff this year's COPC.

Taking place at the Snatch Rock n' Roll Lounge in Calgary, Alberta, the party will feature an intimate performance by Suzie McNeil.

Also confirmed to be attending is actress/poker player/bombshell Jennifer Tilly. Raised in Victoria, B.C., Tilly has won numerous accolades in the acting world but has made quite the splash in the poker world and in 2005 won the $1,000 Ladies' No-Limit Texas Hold'em event. Tilly is currently dating poker pro Phil "Unabomber" Laak who will also be attending the party.

2004 LAPC winner Antonio Esfandiari will also be taking part in the festivities as well as 1996 Main Event winner Huckleberry Seed. Everybody's favorite Canadian poker pro, "Yukon" Brad Booth, will also be making an appearance.

The party will be hosted by the girls from Coors Light, Maxim Magazine and HeadsUp Entertainment so it's doubtful the night will get boring.
