Canadian actress Pamela Anderson might be the next celebrity professional poker player. It has been reported that Pamela will be making a trip to Australia to participate in an international poker tournament.
The tournament called Aussie Millions, attracts a large amount of exposure and is one of the biggest annual professional poker events in the world.
As reported by the Herald Sun, the Baywatch star’s managment has been negotiating with the event organizers to play at the world-renowned tournament.
Joining her on the table will be tennis player Mark Philippoussis and Dannii Minogue’s husband ex-rugby player Kris Smith. Pamela has a long history with the game. She had her own poker site (Pamelapoker.com) back then but it got shut because of some regulations. She also revealed on a talk show that she started seeing her husband Rick Salomon after he agreed to pay off some of her poker debt.
The tournament will start on January 18th and will go on for six days. Around 800 players will play for the top prize of $1.4m which was won by Alexander Kostritsyn last year.
