Best known for his role in Sex and the City, Willie Garson has been testing the poker waters for a few years now as well. He's now made a big splash, however, as he won last week's Canadian Poker Night tournament at Hollywood Poker.

Canadian Poker Night is part of Hollywood Poker's three weekly celebrity events that give players a chance to ante up with some of the site's regular celebrity players. Some celebrities also have a bounty on their heads for the player who knocks them out of the tournament.

Garson had nothing to fear in the Canadian Poker Night, however, as he dominated the tables and took out beebo0x for the win. According to Hollywood Poker, beebo0x is a regular on the site and has many celebrity bounties under his belt.

The final hand came when beebo0x had suited connectors against Garson's A-K. Both players paired an ace on the board, but Garson had the better kicker for the win.

Garson also managed to knock out several fellow celebrities on the way to his win. His casualties included Christopher Rich, Kato Kaelin and Ken Howard.

"It was a good day and the cards were on my side," Garson said. "It felt great because there are so many really good players on the site."

Canadian Poker Night plays each Tuesday at 10 p.m. (EST). The $5+50¢ buy-in tournament has seen more than $100,000 in bounties paid out since it was created.

Other weekly tournaments include the Celebrity Classic, which takes place Sundays at 2 p.m. (EST) and has a $20+$2 buy-in. This tournament offers celebrity bounties up to $2,000.

The Michael Woods Celebrity Invitational plays Saturdays at 2 p.m. (EST). Its buy-in is $10+$1, and it offers up to $1,000 in bounties.
