A new poker application is set to launch on October 8th. A new social gaming publisher, PLAOR, will launch Hollywood Poker on Facebook.
Hollywood Poker will allow players to go up against a variety of celebrities from movies, TV, sports and music while playing Texas Hold ‘Em Poker. As of today, those who register will be eligible to win the opportunity to play in a special online celebrity poker game with actor, comedian and Hollywood Poker ambassador Kevin Pollak on October 20th.
