Ben Affleck backs out of celebrity poker game

HollywoodNews.com: Forget about losing your chips at a poker tournament, how about getting a migraine?

Ben Affleck had to pull out of the World Series of Poker “Ante Up for Africa” at Rio in Las Vegas for that very reason. The event was established by Annie Duke, Don Cheadle, Matt Damon and Montel Williams.

Speaking to Page Six, Affleck exclaims, “This is the one poker event I go to each year, and I didn’t even get to play.”

But if there’s one game to never underestimate celebrities in – it’s poker. “American Pie” beauty Shannon Elizabeth came in second with $80,000 while professional poker player Phil Gordon drew $129,086.

If you ever get the chance, be sure to watch “The Mentalist” star Robin Tunney play whenever she’s on TV – the actress is quite the smooth operator at the game.
