Today on our poker radio show, The Final Table, Dennis Phillips and I talked about his trip to Miami for Super Bowl week, including a stop at the Playboy Golf Tournament and Pool Party, a charity poker event with Jim Carrey, and a visit with Darvin Moon (2009 WSOP Main Event runner-up and huge New Orleans Saints fan).
Then Joe “The Poker Coach” McGowan joined us as we replied to a listener who e-mailed his objection to the use of the phrase “That’s poker!” when used to refer to someone sucking out with a one- or two-outer.
Next, we talked with poker pro Bernard Lee, host of ESPN.com’s Inside Deal, who has just signed a unique deal with Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut, making him the first poker player we know to get an endorsement contract from a brick-and-mortar casino. Bernard — who has made over $1.35 million in tournaments, won 3 WPT titles, and finished 13th in the 2005 WSOP Main Event — offered some advice for players who plan on taking part in the WSOP Circuit Event that’s coming to St. Louis in April. If you’ve only played in tournaments with 30-60 players, you should pay attention to what he says about playing in the much larger fields that Circuit Events always draw.
