James Woods – Just Your “Average Amateur Player” At The WSOP

Woods talks Chipgate, Bad Beat Jackpots and why he's done with Hollywood Home Games.

Big screen legend James Woods takes poker more seriously than most. Sure, he’s a Golden Globe and Oscar nominated actor, but in the halls of the Rio he knows he’s just your average amateur player who is hoping to win some hardware.

Woods gives Bluff Magazine a great on camera interview where he opens up about growing up with poker and enjoying the complexity of the game. Sure, he may not need the money, but he likes it when he wins – like the time he won the Bad Beat Jackpot at Foxwoods, or the time that he took a $1k prize home for being 2nd in chips at the Borgata Winter Open.

While he loves playing the Vegas and on the East Coast, Woods claims that he’s done with the Hollywood Home games where guys like Tobey Maguire would put “millions” in play without any protection. Check it out!
