The Showboat is having another $225+$25 poker tournament in January. It’s during the Mike & Mike in the Morning celebrity roast. But that’s not what we care about here, we only care about the tournament.
It’s a two-day event that will conclude with a tournament benefiting The V Foundation for Cancer Research (which I am strongly support) on Saturday Jan. 12 at 11 a.m. at the Showboat hosted by Mike & Mike.
The last tournament they had was extremely successful and got rave reviews. I expect this tournament to be a success as well.
For those interested in the roast, ESPN’s Trey Wingo and Mark Schlereth will host the event. Comedian Jeffery Ross will MC it while Frank Caliendo from those annoying Frank TV commercials, Dennis Leary and Dick Vitale have agreed to participate.
A limited number of tickets to the roast are available between 100 - $150 and Roast only tickets beginning at $25. All tickets will be available at the House of Blues box office (801 Boardwalk, Atlantic City, N.J.), by calling Ticketmaster at 800-736-1420 or online at www.ticketmaster.com.
This is straight from ESPN’s press release, "that Friday's Mike & Mike in the Morning show (6-10 a.m. ET) will be open to the public and originate from "The Pool at Harrah's" entertainment complex described as an "indoor oasis" and a "lush tropical paradise," with more than 80,000 gallons of sparkling blue water housed under a 90-foot glass dome. The broadcast is simulcast on ESPN2 and streamed on ESPNRadio.com."
