Surrounded by celebrities

The Imperial Palace is famous for its "Dealertainers," celebrity impersonators who deal blackjack for you, then get up on a little stage and sing a song or two. Just last night during the few hours I was in the poker room, we heard from the likes of Elvis Presley, Madonna, Garth Brooks, Beyonce, Tony Orlando, and Lady Gaga.

But what you might not know about the Palace is that it also features Playertainers. Here's the proof. At my table last night we had Brett Favre:

Dennis Rodman:

I've played poker at IP with the Garth Brooks dealertainer. I remember thinking he was kidding when he told me that, but sure enough I have since seen him up on stage.

I like the Dealertainers even if they can be a bit loud. They bring a fun energy to the place and keep the mood light.

Also, you didn't mention the actual celebrity that frequents IP: TBC. Who needs impersonators when you can play with a legend?
