POKER INFO - PROILE - Ben Affleck

Loved him in Gilli.

Ben has lost a lot of money playing poker. But a few days ago he won the California State Poker Championship, beating 90 other players. Among the players he beat were Stan Goldstein, Jimmy Tran, and Amir Vahedi. Ben Affleck won $356,400 in the championship and has qualified for the World Poker Tour Championship next April in Las Vegas.

I can't figure out what's worse, his poker game or acting skills. Without Matt Damon this guy would never have had the bucks to give away in tourneys. His recent win out here only proves anybody can win.

I'm adam the moron 06-27-04 06:00 PM

Can you believe this guy won the Cali State poker championship? I guess he needs more money for those hair plugs.

flush80 06-28-04 06:00 PM

people let him win so the casino gets some good publicity, make no mistake, he is shit at poker

poker kitten 06-28-04 06:00 PM

He is the sexiest man alive. I love him and I want to marry him. Anyone know his e-mail address? Please.

Can't stand the guy but... 06-29-04 06:00 PM

Who cares if he is bad at poker?!?... at the end of the day, he is very rich, average enough at poker to make it to a final table and famous... come on guys! jealousy is not a good look on anyone... lol

tbone 06-29-04 06:00 PM

affleck is supposedly a very good poker player. hes been tutored by annie duke and use to be tutored by amir vahedi. they both say he is a world class player

jeff 06-29-04 06:00 PM

if hes a world class player im stu ungar. By "tutored" annie means she took his money from him in high stakes ring games.

curious 07-04-04 06:00 PM

Have any of you actually played with him?

sorry 07-06-04 06:00 PM

I have played with himtwice, both times at foxwoods. Nice guy, bad player, man do I have some stories. Let me know if you are interested? Actually, prove to me you are interested, seeing as I don't know you and this is some interesting shit.

james 07-08-04 06:00 PM

HMMM. LETS SEE HERE. HE WON THE CALI STATE Championship. I DON;T SEE ANY OF YOU WINNING ANTTHING LIKE THAT. DON;T HATE ON SOMEONE U WISH U COULD BE.

Roy Batty 07-08-04 06:00 PM

hahaha what a dope.He's lucky he's rich otherwise he'd be sweeping up the casino instead of playing high stakes poker.

herman007 07-14-04 06:00 PM

Affleck is and will always be a fish. The pro's rub their hands together when he strolls in. DEAD MONEY.

curious 07-15-04 06:00 PM

I'd love to hear your stories sorry. I love hearing great poker stories if you got them. Though I don't know how I can prove I'm interested. I am interested is all I can honestly say.

bens ok 07-17-04 06:00 PM

matt damon is better

Unregistered 07-19-04 06:00 PM

He is great for the poker main stream. Glad he puts a legitimate spin on it.

Unregistered 07-25-04 06:00 PM

Leave him the hell alone. If he wants to play poker let him play poker. He's won before and it's not like he's just playing because it shows that he has money to lose. He likes the game and that's a good enough reason to play.

zman 07-28-04 06:00 PM

Ok Lets See Here Calculate All The Times Hes Played Of Course Hes Finally Going To Win A Big Tourmenent He Plays All The Dam Time If I Had The Money To Play All The Time Id Win A Tourmenent Geezeeee. Lance Armstrong Won The Tour De France 6 Times In A Row I Bet No One Will Win The Wsop Final 6 Times In A Row Lol. Reality Check.

romanblue 07-30-04 06:00 PM

If you never played a hi stakes poker tourmenent you have no idea what it take to win one give the man his due cali champ

shady 07-31-04 06:00 PM

Played with him last year and couldnt wait to get on a table with him again as he was playing loose. Then he met Annie Duke. The next time I played with him after she gave him lessons it was like he had been playing for years. Proves that if you want to learn and get the right teacher you can be the best. Now if he is on the table i say hello and keep walking. Thanks Annie u didn't have to teach him that much LOL..

Quit Acting You Suck At It 08-01-04 06:00 PM

Im Sure He Plays Poker Better Then He Acts Cause I Always Fall Asleep During his Movies Hopefully He Will Quit Acting And Donate Money To Hellmuth And Other Top Player

AcesLewy 08-11-04 06:00 PM

I'm no Ben Affleck fan but jesus you people need to get off his nuts! How many bad players have you been up against? Do you sit around and talk about how bad they are? I don't even know if He's a bad player my estimation is he has to be pretty decent since hes being taught the game by Annie. Just because you hate his movies doesn't mean you have to be a critic to EVERYTHING the guy does. I don't even like his movies but you people are just pathetic.. GET A LIFE!

Shaun. 08-14-04 06:00 PM

Good to see a serious poker discussion! You guys are terrible. If the man wants to play poker it is his right to do so. If you spent as much time on your game as you do complaining, you would find yourself across the table from Affleck! And here I am wasting my time! I need to get back to my tourney!

artist 08-15-04 06:00 PM

I play him last month the guy went all in on J5 os he lost what a loser

get over it 08-16-04 06:00 PM

Leave him alone, you people are such losers yourself, your jealousy and lack of talent propel you to put down others. It's pathetic. Stop worrying about Afflecks game and start worrying about improving your own.

artist 08-17-04 06:00 PM

(Get over it) you suck !!!!

Ricky 08-19-04 06:00 PM

ben sucks at poker so much

Marina 08-20-04 06:00 PM

I've been reading over most of these comments, and it seems to me that all the comments bashing Mr. Affleck don't give any real reason behind each comments' hostilities towards him. "Ben sucks at poker"... "Affleck's a fish"..."Matt Damon is better"... None of you give any cold hard facts nor have a real basis to back up your negative thoughts. While you're entitled to your opinions, keep in mind that there will always be better or worse players than Mr. Affleck, who by the way was good enough to win the California State Poker Championship, as stated by A. Jackson. Phil Gordon I believe has said that Mr. Affleck is a decent player, and, if Annie Duke has taken the time to teach Mr. Affleck how to play "real" poker, then she must see something good in him. Why can't most of you? I don't see or hear of any of you winning any state poker competitions let alone anything else.
