Poker Royalty Clients Join Cast of the Real Deal! Show at the Venetian

Poker Royalty clients Daniel Negreanu, Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Hellmuth, Scotty Nguyen, and Gavin Smith will join other professional poker players for The Venetian Resort Hotel and Casino’s one of a kind poker themed stage show, The Real Deal!

The Real Deal! is a 90 minute show that allows audience members to play poker with some of today’s top professional poker players. The show is hosted by Vinnie Favorito, a veteran comedian that has appeared on shows like “Best Damn Sports Show Period”, “The Martin Short Show”, and numerous Comedy Central shows to name just a few.

Doyle Brunson, Eli Elezra, Jennifer Harman, Phil Laak, and Todd Brunson complete the cast for a star-studded lineup. Two pros will participate in each show.

Six randomly chosen audience members will get the chance to sit at the poker table on stage with the pros. The rest of the audience will play the “virtual 9th hand” on handheld electronic devices. The goal of the audience members is to increase their point stack and the audience member with the most points will be able to join the surviving professional and amateur on stage. There are several ways for audience members to increase their points such as guessing the suit of the next card, or betting on whether a pro can correctly guess what state a particular audience member is from, which helps the show appeal to everyone. Every participating audience member will have the chance to win cash and prizes.
