James Woods is best known as a star of stage and screen, as the well-known Hollywood actor has appeared in countless films and television shows during a storied career under the spotlight. Woods also loves a good game of poker, having become a regular on the tournament circuit in recent years, so we weren't surprised to see him here today mixing it up with the seniors.

Kevin O'Donnell made his bones back in 2006 when he went deep in that year's World Series of Poker Main Event en route to a 21st-place finish. The Arizona native parlayed the $494,797 he won for that accomplishment into a successful bar and restaurant operation in his home state, but he has also continued to grind away on the circuit, registering numerous WSOP cashes in the years since he almost won poker's most prestigious tournament.

The man known as "KO" to his friends is also here today competing in the Seniors Championship, and with his experience against open fields all around the country, he should have no problem building a big stack against this amateur-heavy field.
