Hell hath no fury like Jen Tilly on mega-tilt! The Oscar-nominated actress was among the latest batch of participants on the Poker After Dark reboot. New episodes have been airing this week on PokerCentral's streaming service a.k.a. PokerGO. The celebrity-heavy week was dubbed Moving Violations and included notable faces such as Jen Tilly and Don Cheadle.
The series is recorded live at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas and streamed on PokerGO.
In this particular tilt-worthy hand, Jen Tilly held Big Slick against Antonio Esfandiari. The magician took Queen-Jack suited into battle. Tilly turned a Wheel with A-K, but it put a second diamond on the board, which gave Esfandiari a flush draw. Esfandiari raised Tilly and she smooth-called.
Tilly knew something was up. Her Spidey-senses were tingling and the actress said, "I know you got an Ace! Then you pretended you have a six. Now you're magically pretending you have a full house."
Tilly folded and Esfandiari offered to show the hand to Tilly. She stood up and proclaimed, "I don't wanna see it!" Then she proceeded to toss Esfandiari's hand into the muck. The table erupted in chuckles.

And for a bonus video from PokerAfter Dark, check out Jen Tilly with pocket Aces. She flopped top set, but Don Cheadle flopped top two pair. Oh, and Esfandiari flopped a Broadway straight draw. Cheadle fired out $43K at the pot and Tilly shoved all-in for $103K.
"To gamble, or not to gamble!" lamented Esfandiari.
The turn was the seven of clubs and Tilly dodged a huge bullet. The river was a King. "Holy shit, I did it!" said a stunned Esfandiari after he rivered a Broadway straight gutterball. "I shoulda ran it twice," joked Tilly.
"I came to play," shrugged Esfandiari.
