Jennifer Tilly - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

On June 27, 2005, Tilly won a World Series of Poker bracelet (and $158,625) in the Ladies' No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em event, outlasting 600 other players. This was especially astounding because it was not a celebrity open, and she is the first celebrity to win a World Series of Poker event. She followed up this accomplishment on September 1, 2005 by also winning the third World Poker Tour Ladies Invitational Tournament held at the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles.

In a television interview, Tilly stated that at this point in her career she is more interested in pursuing poker than acting.
