Celebrity poker host Jamie Gold was joined by MC Phillip Baker in welcoming players who had donated $1,500 to sit down in an exclusive poker room. Players then participated in a No Limit Texas Hold’em tournament with exclusive prizes, including a $5,000 gold watch and a $15,000 Las Vegas WSOP package courtesy of Everest.

Outside the poker room some high profile guests graced the red carpet as the sun set over the beautiful Cape of Antibes. Paris Hilton and her boyfriend Doug Reinhardt stopped by and were inundated by the sea of media attending this poker charity event.



Also attending was Willem Dafoe, in town to promote his new new film Antichrist. Dafoe spent  the evening conversing with the rest of the guests and posing for pictures, including meeting Jamie Gold for the first time. Emile Hirsch, star of films such as Milk and Alpha Dog also joined the party, closely followed by Watchmen super-woman Malin Akerman. Other attendees included Sunflower Children president Helena Houdova, actress and model Phoebe Price and actress Hofit Golan.
