Hot—and She Plays Cards, Too!

Shannon Elizabeth is not just the hot chick from American Pie: She took second place in the World Series of Poker’s annual charity tournament, Ante Up for Africa.

We’re hoping her morphing into a respectable poker player doesn’t means she’ll start to look like Greg Raymer. That would be tragic.

Poker pro Phil Gordon won the July 3 tournament, which raised $275,000 for charity. It also drew celebs Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Brad Garrett, Montel Williams, David Alan Grier, Evander Holyfield and Jerome Bettis.

You’d think Damon would’ve done better than Elizabeth just by being in a better poker movie than her 2008 Deal. He got to relive Rounders and Ocean’s 13 moments that night when he and Cheadle dined at Martorano’s at the Rio and the restaurant played clips from the films on the dining room’s televisions.
