Stars of Poker and Silver Screen Flock to WPT's Bay 101 Shooting Stars

Poker stars and Hollywood celebs came together for the World Poker Tour's (WPT) Bay 101 Shooting Stars Tournament in San Jose. Today marks day four of the five-day tournament, which commenced on March 7th. The tournament brought together 22 poker pros, putting one at each table. The tournament added a twist by placing a bounty on the "heads" of star players. Accordingly, contenders succeeding in knocking his or her table's star out of the competition automatically win $5,000.

The $10,000 buy-in tournament features a total prize pool of $4 million, with prizes raging from $1 for the 1st-place winner, to the 9th-place $100,000 prize. The event attracted Hollywood names like James Woods, Mimi Rogers and Jennifer Tilly (who is dating WPT champion Phil "Unabomber" Laak, also one of the tournament's star competitors) as well as poker stars such as Scotty Nguyen, Men the Master, Kathy Liebert and Chip Jett. At the start of day three, only 15 Poker stars remained in the game, including Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Phil Hellmuth, and Howard Lederer.
