Stars from the world of TV, film, sport and poker were on hand at Bally's in Las Vegas on Saturday for the The One Step Closer Foundation’s Seventh Annual All-In for Cerebral Palsy Celebrity Poker Tournament.

Hosted by former WSOP Main Event winner Jamie Gold and Cheryl Hines (Larry David's on-screen wife from Curb Your Enthusiasm), the event raised over $50,000 for sufferers of cerebral palsy.

Over 100 players took to the felt including former World Champ Joe Cada, Noah Schwartz, Jennifer Tilly and hip-hop star Coolio. The tournament was won by Ultimate Fighting star Roy 'Big Country' Nelson who topped a final table that included Phil Laak and Robert Mizrachi to take the $10,000 first prize.
