One of the great things about playing in the WSOP Main Event is that not only can you share a table with your poker heroes like Phil Ivey or Daniel Negreanu, you can also share them with bonafide celebrities too. Don't be surprised to see stars such as Matt Damon, James Woods and Lennox Lewis amongst the sea of online qualifiers. Now Pacific Poker not only offer you the chance to play with a celebrity, they are giving you a chance to travel with and buddy up with a genuine legend.
