Celeb Moneymaker "Bets" His Way To The Top!

World champion poker player Chris Moneymaker is number one in Trading With The Stars! He knocks Willie Garson out of first place--taking the lead for the SECOND time in the competition.(thanks to producer Lori Spechler for pointing this out). He was number one back on April 3rd. BUT is it a "bluff?"--only $2,590.29 separates the two players. So, there could be more trading places in the days ahead. Here's a breakdown:
