Phil Hellmuth and the Kardashians Raise Dollars and Bitcoins for Charity Poker

Tags: Bitcoin, Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Phil Hellmuth, Poker Charity.
Posted on Wednesday, August 01, 2018 by "T".

Khloe Kardashian & HellmuthThroughout the years, charity poker events have proven to be something that works in raising money for good causes, and this one event in California managed to get an extremely famous host on Sunday night.

It's quite an unusual crossover of ESPN's World Series of Poker meets E!'s Keeping Up With The Kardashians in this charity poker tournament.

The charity poker tournament is called "If Only" and it's held at The Forum in Inglewood. If Only raised money to benefit City of Hope, a cancer-focused non-profit research center and hospital.

If you only have $250 you cannot even get to play in this not-so-average charity poker event, because player packages start at $1,000 and if you want to go all the way, you can even go as high as $50,000!

Hellmuth and TV and film producer Randall Emmett hosted and emceed the event which attracted Hollywood personalities and brought in over $500,000 for a good cause.

For the first time, Phil Hellmuth wasn't the biggest diva in a poker tournament he took part in, as the celebrity cast of the reality TV show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Kendall and Kris Jenner, Khloe Kardashian and Kim Kardashian West competed in the tournament to try out no-limit Texas Hold'em, posed for pictures, and encouraged guests to donate money to City of Hope.



There was no standard prize pool in this charity poker tournament. Prizes available for the winners include VIP access for four to Fleetwood Mac at The Forum, VIP access for four to an Eagles concert at The Forum, special jewelry and custom-fitted Callaway golf clubs. Sponsors donated up to $50,000 for a private tournament table while some paid up to $7,500 to be seated at a table with one of the Kardashians.

The poker room featured caterers including Boo's Philly Cheese Steaks, Tyler Texas, Justin Wines and French fizz by the Bubble Tap Trailer.

You can also check out adoptable dogs from Bark'n'Bitches. You can also have your feet done by Barefoot Trailer, or you can have a hair makeover by Mane Addicts.

At the tournament, Kim posted lots of glamour shots of poker chips and even a pair of minted Bitcoins in her Instagram. She was apparently given her first Bitcoin by a cryptocurrency enthusiast who attended the event. It seemed as though she gambled with it in a poker game, but it wasn't known whether she managed to hang on to it.

The event, which featured raffles as well as top-dollar food and drinks, shall soon be aired on a future episode of the hit show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

If I have the money I'd play with all the Kardashians as well - maybe not in a dome poker tourney but I'd make their time worth 4 sure.

I always like it when successfull people give back by organizing events like these. Everything that is done for charity is a good thing. The money that gets raised will go a long way towards helping people that really need helping.

What a clash of the ego titans this was, Hellmuth v The Kardashians!! I am really looking forward to watching this when it airs and must congratulate them for raising money for charity

Maybe online casinos should be follow that, create some tourney for charity ( real money not play money like PS few month ago). separate cash game and others gambling games from poker tournament so not many country band poker casino or restrict country policy from casino so that more people can enjoy poker Tongue

It is good when you see people raising money for good cause and others in need.
There are always many, that step in trying to help however they can.
We had bright examples here lately.
Something that still keeps us being "humans" Smile

Makes very little sense to do this in a dome though. They could have find a cheaper solution to host this IMO.

well what can I say, famous dudes and dudettes had a great night doing their own famous nonsense and a bunch of fellas who needed money will get a piece of the cake. not a band night overall. I just wonder if hellmouth managed to stick one...

Charity organizations for raising funds to help all sorts of people with problems or big problems is a very good thing and this should be done more often in every country in the world. Unfortunately, these things rarely happen in many countries and it's not good. People with money could donate more often for different causes and they will not lose much.

Helmuth and the Kardashians should all be in the minivan that runs off a cliff of their own perceived self worth. Unbelievable. Helmuth has some talent of course, how in the screaming Hades could he associate himself with the Kardashians for some charity which they probably don't care about in the slightest? Day of the rope, I'm still biding my time for that occasion.

I did not get a piece at all, but if Kourtney or Kendall wanna call me apologizing about this 'fiasco' then so be it. Agree
