Some of the celebrities participating are: Jean Scott, writer; John Grochowski, radio host; Bill Burton, columnist; Dr. Don Catlin, gaming mathematician; Linda Mabry, columnist; Richard Armstrong, writer and Barry Sigismondi, actor. The GTC instructors who will figure in individual challenges against each other are: Dominator, Strikeman, Rock n' Roll, Mr. Finesse, Billy the Kid, Street Dog and Pit Boss.

The different World Championship Matches includes the Come-Out Championship; the Hard Way, the Ultimate Crapshooter, the 6 and 8, and the 4 and 10. The No Sevens, Make your Point, On the Hop, and In the Field are other championship matches lined up for the tournament. The Tournament of Champions on July 23 is considered as the main attraction.
