Jennifer Tilly has surpassed $1 million in total poker winnings

Jennifer Tilly is currently taking part in the World Series of Poker, and with her cash yesterday has officially made over $1 million in poker winnings (don't ask how much she's lost though).

For non-poker players, most poker tournaments pay out when a certain amount of people are left in the game. So the last 50 players might start making money (the number depends on the number of players and the amount of money in the pot). "The bubble" is when they are just about to make the money, so when they get close to that number people play much more carefully. In this video Jennifer says she doesn't want to be the "Bubble Boy", which is a nickname for the last person to lose before reaching the money.

In case you were wondering how she likes her Pop Tarts:

Her boyfriend, professional poker player Phil Laak, has also been playing.

When did you make your first million playing poker? What are your favorite types of Pop Tarts?
