If you ever watched Celebrity Poker Showdown on the Bravo Channel, you would know that actor-comedians David Cross and Michael Ian Black are enthusiasts of the game, each making it to the show's championship round. Today, put on your best poker face and see if you can take down Cross, Black, and This American Life's Ira Glass at An Honest Elimination Poker Tournament, a benefit for the creative writing program for children at 826NYC. The game is Texas Hold 'Em, and you can potentially win an autographed tournament trophy and the glory of saying you beat two wily actors and a radio wonk.
