Actress Cheryl Hines seen at Poker Tournament

by Poker Team

Cheryl Hines, who stars as Larry David’s wife on the hit HBO comedy series Curb Your Entusiasm, took a break from shooting a new film in Connecticut to play a poker tournament at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Hines is not a newcomer to the sport, seen regularly at poker tournaments across the country and at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. In fact, Hines plays home poker games regularly in Los Angeles with other celebrities including Ray Romano, Ellen DeGeneres, and Teri Hatcher.

According to the, Hines was knocked out of the tournament early on Monday, May 5th. “I love the strategy of poker,” she explained. “I love being able to wait out bad cards for good cards. And I like the psychology of the game. I really like trying to figure out what (other players) have, and the adrenalin rush you get when you’re right.”

Cheryl Hines was the only celebrity poker participant of the 775 tournament entrants. With celebrity poker players regularly playing at live events in the past several years, this was a bit surprising.
