The $1,650 NAPT Main Event might be the flagship event at Resorts World, but there’s a huge amount of interest in the return of PokerStars’ TV show The Big Game.
The Big Game on Tour is filming across two days, and the line-up has now been revealed, with Phil Hellmuth, Jennifer Tilly, Alan Keating and Lex Veldhuis joined by actress and singer Arden Cho. Phil Laak was also announced last week.
An extremely jovial Hellmuth did the introductions, but will he manage to stay as upbeat at The Big Game table?

Nikki Limo and Lily Newhouse are the two Loose Cannons after winning their way through a freeroll shootout and successfully auditioning in front of a panel of judges made up of Joe Stapleton, James Hartigan, and one of the original Loose Cannons, Nadya Magnus.
That’s the official line.
Unofficially, we’ve found out they enlisted some powerful outside help, with Caitlin Comeskey casting a moon ritual spell to get them through the shootout.

Limo and Newhouse should be highly entertaining, and remember they get to keep anything they win over their original $50,000 stake (minus whatever it cost for the moon ritual spell, of course).
The Big Game on Tour is being filmed over two days and there’s still time for more players to join the fray.
