Jennifer Tilly can add another item to her impressive resume; she is now a poker champion. Tilly, who has stared in several movies including House Arrest, Liar Liar, and The Haunted Mansion, defeated a record field of 601 ladies to win her first gold bracelet.

When play started at the 9 handed final table, Jennifer's chip stack was 3 times larger than all 8 of her opponents' stacks combined. Needless to say she was able to cruise to a dominating final table victory that paid $158,335.

Anh Le finished in 2nd place and earned $83,540. Cecilia Mortensen, wife of World Champion Juan Carlos Mortensen, finished in 4th place and won $38,220. Female poker superstar Kathy Liebert just made the money with a 52nd place finish.
