I’ve watched my fair share of poker on television—although, I must admit, I still find it weird that poker is on ESPN. While there are some real rough looking guys and some total goobers sitting around the poker tables, poker has recently had a surge of hot women joining the ranks amongst the top poker players in the profession. What I find most surprising is the number of Hollywood actresses that have joined in on the fun. The following cinematic babes have given a whole new meaning to the term “double threat.”
Jennifer Tilly is possibly the most prolific actress/poker player. Not many women can tout that they are an Academy Award nominee and a winner of a World Series of Poker Ladies’ Event bracelet winner. In 2005, Jennifer Tilly won her World Series of Poker bracelet—with it came a nice purse of $158,625. In the same year, she won her third World Poker Tour Ladies Invitational Tournament.
