You might be an old hand at Texas Hold 'Em, have memorized Phil Gordon’s poker tips and scored big in Vegas. So what? You’ve never taken down a champion. Now’s your chance — in Koreatown. On July 22, you can go mano-á-mano with Tuan Le, the 27-year old World Poker Tour Champion of no-limit Texas Hold 'Em, for just a $50 buy-in. Last tournament he played, he walked away with more than $4 million. This time it’s all for charity, with proceeds benefiting the Korean Immigrant Workers Advocates.

The winner (you, of course) and runners up will get luxe prizes, like a huge TV and a portable DVD player. Call to register for your spot (213-738-9050) or take a risk and hope there's still space for a few walk-ins when things get started at Buffet Land restaurant, 1925 Olympic Blvd, 6pm Friday. So, punk: Do you feel lucky?
