Ready to share the poker fantasy? Playboy Enterprises last week announced a partnership with Moneymaker Gaming to develop and produce its first-ever Playboy Poker Camp.

The camp will feature world class instruction from some of poker’s top players, including WSOP Champion Layne Flack and Jim "Krazy Kanuck" Worth.

Additionally, the poker camp includes nightly poker tournaments with prizes of more than $100,000 and events with Playboy Playmates, all of which culminate with a lavish party at the legendary Playboy Mansion.

With instruction for beginners to advanced players, packages start at $4,999 for the four-day, four-night event. The first camp will be held in January 2007 at Morongo Casino Resort and Spa, near Palm Springs, California. Registration has begun at playboypokercamp.com .

"Chris Moneymaker has built the strongest brand in poker today, and we are thrilled to team up with him to create an incredible poker camp such as this," stated Sarah Haney, vice president, licensing, Playboy Enterprises, Inc. "We’ve enjoyed such success with our co-branded poker products that we wanted to bring something more to the table for poker aficionados everywhere."

Moneymaker said he’s still on a roll since winning the World Series of Poker three years ago.

"I’ve been living a dream since winning the 2003 World Series, and I want to give my fans a taste of that," said Moneymaker, co-founder of Moneymaker Gaming. "Playboy Poker Camp will offer a once in a lifetime chance to play alongside the best players in the world, hang out with Playboy Playmates, and compete for more than $100,000 in prize money. This will be the ultimate poker experience."
