Jennifer Tilly's poker career took off like a rocket back in 2005 when the won the WSOP Ladies Even for $158k. After that win Tilly took a break from her acting career and put all focus on playing poker together with her boyfriend Phil Laak, who probably doesn't need a closer presentation. Anyhow, Tilly's poker career has been like a yoyo since the win in 2005 and her live tournament winnings today are about $700k.
But according to many poker players, her poker winnings haven't been greater than the money spent. In an interview on The Late Show with Craig Ferguson 2 days ago, Tilly said that she wants to quit poker and return to her career as actor. This might confirm the rumors and also be a strong indication that she's running out of cash.
Perhaps not running out of cash completely, as I believe there is always someone behind this very famous persons who keeps an eye on their money, so they don’t spend more than a certain limit. Who doesn’t have someone to take care of his/her savings, it just cant think clearly about the value of money they possess. It will be nice to see her in the big screen, cute face!
Any professional poker player will tell you, that being successful comes down to being able to exploit any tiny little edge you may have over your opponents. Jennifer Tilly had 2 pretty huge edges she coulda been exploiting. Maybe we'll be lucky to see her in another scene like she was in during the movie bound
