NFL All-Pro Uses New Xbox Live Vision Camera to Take on Gamers in World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions as Part of the Latest Xbox Live ‘Game with Fame’ Session

Kansas City Chiefs’ Running Back, Larry Johnson who amassed one of the single greatest seasons in NFL history in 2005, will raise the stakes in Activision’s World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions as part of the latest Xbox Live ‘Game with Fame’ session. Fans interested in tackling LJ on Xbox 360® should keep an eye for the Xbox Live ‘gamertag’ LJ27GWF on Friday, September 22 between 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. PST/ 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. EST to challenge the superstar in a game of poker via Xbox Live playing Activision’s World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions for Xbox 360.

Johnson, currently in his fourth season with the Chiefs, rushed for more than 1700 yards last season, ranking him third in the league and earning him his first ever Pro Bowl selection. As one of the most dynamic backs in the NFL, Johnson blends a mixture of speed and power to run through defenses throughout the league. His 21 total touchdowns placed him at second best and he topped the century mark in rushing during each of his nine starts this year. A prominent figure on and off the field, Larry has become the first NFL player to be sponsored by an urban brand apparel, signing a major endorsement deal with Jay-Z’s Rocawear® clothing label.
