Kelly Hu on Celebrity Poker Night

celebrity poker | Kelly Hu
Kelly Ann Hu is an American actress and former fashion model who held the Miss Teen USA 1985 and Miss Hawaii USA 1993 titles. When it comes to poker hotties, it doesn’t get any better than Kelly Hu‘s Chinese, Hawaiian, English and Filipino features. She has also starred in such films as X2, Cradle 2 the Grave and The Scorpion King.

Hu, a member of CAUSE USA, an organization which encourages Asian Americans to participate in the democratic process, was instrumental in creating the innovative PSA The Least Likely. This clip purports to be a promo for a typical fantasy-adventure movie, only to reveal its message at the end. It aired on MTV and other networks with appeal to young people and Asian Americans.

Kelly Hu is an avid fan of poker and a dedicated poker player, and has frequently taken part in World Series of Poker and World Poker Tour competitions (amongst others), most recently taking part in the WPT Celebrity Charity on March 3, 2008. She has taken part in HollywoodPoker.com's "Celebrity Poker Night" (May 30, 2006), and in July 2006 she placed in the top 200 in the World Series of Poker Ladies Tournament, besting nearly a thousand other competitors. Her celebrity teammates included Mimi Rogers, Victoria Pratt, Anne Heche, Mena Suvari, Jean Smart, and Ricki Lake.

Kelly currently lives alone in Brentwood, Los Angeles, and she has never been married. Hard to believe, given the good looks and talent of this poker hottie.

Shannon Elizabeth: Top Celebrity Poker Player

poker hottie - shannonPerhaps best known for her starring turn in Hollywood's American Pie series of teen comedies, Shannon Elizabeth is beginning to make a name for herself in the poker world as well. Although most people associate Shannon Elizabeth with acting, she is also an avid poker player that has made quite a career out of the sport. In fact, Elizabeth considers poker to be her “second career” and many have referred to her as being “one of the leading celebrity poker players.”

The Texas-born actress has established her table presence in a number of celebrity tournaments, including the 4th edition of Celebrity Poker Showdown and the 1st Annual Nicky Hilton New Year's Eve Poker Tournament at Caesars Palace, in which she outlasted 91 other celebrities and poker professionals to claim first place and the largest chunk of the $120,000 prize pool.

Elizabeth got her start playing poker at a young age, playing stud and draw games with her family in Texas. It wasn't until she'd established herself in Hollywood, however, that the actress was introduced to Texas Hold'em - and she hated it. Turned off by the lack of opportunities to discard or draw new cards, Elizabeth didn't warm to the game until 2003, when she befriended poker professionals Antonio Esfandiari and Phil Laak (along with fellow-actress Jennifer Tilly) and began to hone her skills under the tutelage of some of poker's best teachers.

During the 2006 WSOP, Elizabeth competed as the newest representative of Full Tilt Poker, joining the company of 47 professionals in whose company the actress is looking more and more at home. Underlining her commitment to the sport, Elizabeth signed a poker marketing representation agreement with Poker Royalty, the poker world's foremost player marketing and representation agency.

At this time, Elizabeth is busy juggling her acting and poker careers while also working actively with the charity Animal Avengers.

Joanna Krupa: Poker Supermodel

hot poker girl | Joanna KrupaJoanna Krupa is a supermodel from Poland was a big fan of poker and usually plays online poker on her free time. Joanna’s first experience with poker actually turned out to be her first big win. She had previously done a photo shoot for Donald Trump’s magazine Trump World and was invited to the Trump Towers in Atlantic City. When she got there, she was invited to sit down to a charity tournament against the magazine’s editors and the cast of The Apprentice. To her surprise, first time player Joanna won the $1 million charity tournament.

In 2006, she was signed by TitanPoker.com to be their official spokesperson. She played regularly on Titan and used the site to sharpen up her skills for her first big tournament, the World Series of Poker. Despite having only played poker for about a year prior to the event, Joanna made an impressive show at the WSOP Main Event. Sporting a TitansPoker t-shirt, she advanced far into the second round, beating out 5,000 competitors and outlasting celebrities like Jennifer Tilly, Shannon Elizabeth, and pros like Greg Raymer. It was only her second tournament to ever play in and she garnered some respect by making it through eleven grueling hours during the second round before being knocked out. She stated that her looks did not help her at all because most of the players were concentrating on their hands and not being distracted by the people around them.

Due to busy schedules and travels, Joanna doesn’t usually have a lot of time for live play. But lucky guys everywhere can still catch her playing online at TitanPoker.
