Hollywood actor James Woods is hosting a special online poker tournament to aid the victims of the devastating tsunami tragedy.

Woods is a spokesman for the website HOLLYWOOD POKER, and has decided to host a special event for members to raise cash for those affected by the 26 December (04) disaster, which primarily affected south Asia.

Woods explains, "Anybody who signs up on Hollywood Poker, we're gonna match every penny that's in that tournament.

"So if there's 10,000 people playing and there's $200,000 or $400,000 - whatever the money is - every penny of it, we're gonna put up. We're gonna give it to the tsunami-relief (efforts).

"And if you win anything, you're welcome to give some of that as well, or if not, you can keep it."
