Former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was eliminated in a celebrity-studded charity poker tournament with more than 40 players remaining after he lost his all-in bid to YouTube personality Casey Neistat. 

The online tournament took place on Gambling911.com-endorsed Americas Cardroom and was hosted by none other than Ben Affleck.

54 other big names took part with a $10,000 buy-in.  Adam Sandler, Bryan Cranston and Sarah Silverman joined two of the game's biggest names: Doyle Brunson and Phil Hellmuth.  Brunson was once the face behind Americas Cardroom, which at that time was known as DoylesRoom.

Life coach and professional poker player Ebony Kenney walked away the winner.

Affleck announced the virtual competition would help raise money for Feeding America, which is the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States.  The tournament raised over $1 million prior to Saturday's play.
