Throughout 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.
