Matthew Perry has joined Friends co-star David Schwimmer as a TV poker loser.

The actor was the third of four celebrities who went bust in the second series of CELEBRITY POKER CHALLENGE, which aired in America last night (17JUN04).

Perry, who was playing for charity LILY CLAIRE FOUNDATION, was knocked out of the new competition at THE PALMS casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, by MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE star Chris Masterson and actress Lauren Graham, who went on to win a place in the final, which takes place next month (JUL04).

Perry admitted he has ongoing problems with his poker playing, because he hums to himself if he has a good hand.

The actor stated "If I have good cards, I start humming KANSAS' DUST IN THE WIND and I'm just trying to get away from that." Schwimmer was eliminated from a show during the first series of Celebrity Poker Showdown earlier this year (04).

Meanwhile, another loser in Perry's poker challenge was Lord Of The Rings star Sean Astin, who was the first to be eliminated after going bust.
