Kevin Smith Plays Poker Too

Model actress Kim Smith (above) shares the same last name as writer/director/producer Kevin Smith.

Since Clerks came out, Kevin Smith hadn't made a movie worth seeing for about 15 years (ok, fine, we'll listen to your Dogma arguments, but we won't listen to your Chasing Amy ones, a movie that fell apart in an epicly bad way in its final 30 minutes). Then Zack and Miri Make A Porno dropped last year, which while not spectacular, was solid and worthy of repeat viewings. So hey, Smith's back on the [Entity] radar. More Zack and Miri and less Jersey Girl, please.

Anyway, like Christian Vieri, Smith is also taking up poker, although not in a professional pursuit kind-of-way.

And like any true poker player, Smith is active on, where he recently tweeted:

I feel like playing some poker. Full Tilt, anybody? I play the six-handed sit&go's. Name's askewsme. Please don't identity-theft me.

Apparently his stats aren't that good, but whose are on Tilt? Russ Hamilton could super-user on Tilt and still probably get two-outered enough that he'd be like, "You know what, fuck this shit. I'm going to go play slots."

    Kevin has been playing poker for years, actually. He’s run home games at his NJ & LA comic book stores, which my friend once attended and won. He told me that it had a terrible blind structure, and once Kevin busted out, he dealt and increased the blinds whenever he felt like it.
