    While it was revealed that Mads Mikkelsen was becoming a card shark for his poker scenes as Le Chiffre in Casino Royale, Pokermagasinet Ace reports that the actor has won a real life tournament against a Danish pro player (and several others).

    Playing in an exclusive tournament arranged by Bet24, Mikkelsen went ‘all in’ against Danish full time pro, Theo Jorgensen, and won with, ironically, the same hand he wins against Bond with early on in Casino Royale: pocket Jacks.
