Have you got what it takes to be a Party Pit Dealer? In the day before taking his seat in the Main Event, Smith hung out with Hellmuth at his house a bit to learn some tips and strategies. The first level began smoothly and Smith picked up some pots to build his stack a bit. Midway through the second level of play, Smith picked up and called a small raise to see a flop with three others and it brought.

Things were looking great for no. He was sitting with three of a kind, and he tried to keep his cool. A player checked and Smith bet 1, The players in the cutoff and button folded and the original checker called.

Smith moved 15, chips in the pot and his opponent called again. The river brought the and Smith moved all in with his full house. His opponent tabled for an even bigger full house. It may have been a disappointment, but he took it in stride. Smith took the full house over full house well after hitting the rail. He figures he may not be cut out for so long a stretch at the table anyway.

I can't sit around here in Vegas for a whole week if I make it that far. So forget it, I might as well just enjoy the moment, which I did. When the Cowboys were winning those titles in the s, Smith says he and his teammates played cards regularly — just not poker.

There was plenty of action, however, with big bills and bets flying into the pot. While he may not play as much poker anymore, the running back legend has taken to bicycling and Pat and Emmitt Smith Charities put on a major ride each year in Dallas, the Emmitt Smith Gran Fondo.

As part of the event, he tries to promote living a healthy lifestyle. The Gran Fondo features a highly-competitive mile ride, but also a K, mile ride, a mile ride and a short family ride. While he can look back and laugh a bit about his Main Event experience, this father of five is serious about his efforts for charity. Look for Smith hitting the road, but not hitting the tables in Las Vegas anytime soon.
