Big stacks are good

There's a chance that a certain blonde bombshell will be going Down Under to play in one of the biggest poker tournaments of the year.

Several celebrity gossip sites are reporting that Pamela Anderson will make the trip to Melbourne to get her poker on at the Aussie Millions.

The former Baywatch star has a long history in poker, and even launched her own online poker site at the 2006 WSOP. was a sister site to, but was shut down after the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act was passed later that year.

Anderson was also briefly married to film producer and poker player Rick Salomon. Anderson mentioned on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that the two began seeing each other after Salomon agreed to pay off some of her poker debt.

This is actually the second year it's been rumored that Anderson will play the Aussie Millions. Last year she dropped out of the tournament for unknown reasons, although celebrities like Michael Vartan (Alias) and Shannon Elizabeth filled the tournament's actor/poker player quota.

The 2009 Aussie Millions main event will take place Jan. 18-24. Last year Russian player Alexander Kostritsyn outlasted 778 players and then won a hard-fought heads-up battle against Team Full Tilt member Erik Seidel to take down the $1.4 million first-place prize.
