The third annual Hold'em With Hellmuth" fundraiser brought together another great celebrity poker field, but on a new date and in a new location.
Saturday's event was held at the Exhibition Hall at the Alliant Energy Center, and it brought together professional poker and local celebrities.
"It's pretty cool we have the mayor here," Hellmuth said. "He(Mayor Paul Soglin) announced his candidacy at my tournament two years ago. And he has some poker skills."
During the first two years of the event, Hold'em With Hellmuth raised a combined 250-thousand dollars for Agrace Hospice Care.
Hellmuth, a Madison native, won his record-breaking 12th World Series of Poker championship in June.
