Since we’re not above running something that “Pardon The Interruption” beat into the ground a week ago, the following Associated Press story comes courtesy of Jon Solomon who writes “may nothing here be a spoiler for Season 2 of ‘Tilt'”.

Actress Jennifer Tilly won the Ladies no-limit Texas Hold ™Em event at the World Series of Poker ” the first time a celebrity has won an event at the famous tournament.

Tilly™s skillful play and admitted good luck earned her $158,625. She beat 600 players to capture first place in a two-day event featuring some of the top female professionals in the world.Tilly, 46, said she™s learned plenty of pointers from her boyfriend, poker player Phil œUnabomber Laak.

œWhen you™re living with Phil, you kinda learn by osmosis, Tilly told œEven in the middle of the night, he wakes up screaming out poker terms. Most guys scream out other girls™ names.

(Laak, hours after convincing Ms. Tilly that “Marilyn” is a poker term).
