Larry Flynt made news recently when it was announced that he was opening a "Hustler"-branded online poker room.

The 68-year-old pornographer, who publishes "Hustler" magazine and operates the Hustler Casino, a card room in Gardena, California, debuted the Hustler online poker room at www.hustlercasinola.com on April 15.

Flynt is known to be a poker aficionado himself, even competing in the fabled World Series of Poker (WSOP).

But despite fancying himself as a top-notch poker pro, just how good a poker player is he really?

Not too good, Gambling911.com has discovered, at least according to the record.

According to official tournament statistics, Flynt has finished in the money in a live poker tournament only once in his life.

And that was 11 years ago!

According to the stats, porn king Flynt finished in eighth place in a limit seven-card stud tournament at the 2000 WSOP in Las Vegas.

The tourney had a $5,000 buy-in and 101 entrants.

Flynt earned $10,1000 for the eighth-place finish.

It's the only time in his poker career he's finished in the money in a live poker tourney.

Considering his personal success (or lack thereof) at the poker table, here's a word of advice for Larry:

Don't give up your day job!
