It’s Celebrity Sunday on PokerStats!
James Woods isn’t just a “poker playing celebrity” … he’s a poker player who just happens to be a Hollywood actor.
Woods recently participated in the L.A. Poker Classic poker series presented at the Commerce Casino in Los Angeles where he collected the second win of his career on the live tournament circuit, besting a 88-player field on the way a title in the $1,100 buy-in Omaha 8 or Better event. The Top 12 included a pair of circuit veterans in Owais Ahmed and John Holley.
The 1987 Golden Globe Award winner collected a grand total of six scores during the LAPC, a very impressive feat.
This past summer, Woods made poker headlines final tabling a No-Limit Hold’em Shootout event at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. World Top 10 ranked player Nick Petrangelo would go on to win the event; Woods would bow out in 7th position.
