Shane Warne

We've talked a lot today about the celebrities in the field, and another we've yet to feature is Australian cricket legend Shane 'Warney' Warne. For those who don't know, Warne, who retired after the 2006-07 series, was the Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1994, One-Day International Player of the year in 2000, and Test Player of the Year in 2006.

Warne has also co-authored three books: Shane Warne: My Official Illustrated Career, The Complete Shane Warne, and Shane Warne: My Own Story. He may not be the biggest name in the States, but believe us when we say that Warne is a big a celebrity as they come in the Asia Pacific region.

Since 2008, Warne has been keeping his competitive spirit alive by playing in poker tournaments around the world. His biggest cash to date back in August 2010 when he took third in the Victorian Poker Championship A$10,000 No-Limit Hold'em High Stakes Event for $35,899. He is still looking for his first WSOP cash.
