This week on my poker radio show, The Final Table, Dennis Phillips and I were back together at Harrah’s St. Louis for the $5,000 main event of the World Series Of Poker Circuit Event that got underway Tuesday. There were 129 entrants, which is more than showed up for the main events in Tunica and Council Bluffs combined. We recapped some of the earlier tournaments that made up this WSOPC over the past two weeks, which also had a very solid turnout, and hope to see it return to St. Louis next year.
One of today’s players, poker pro Bernard Lee — co-host of ESPN’s Inside Deal and spokesperson for Foxwoods Casino — joined us to talk about the NAPT event Dennis just returned from at Mohegan Sun, and we did a strategy session about how many players are afraid to be bluffed because their egos can’t take it (fyi: Joe “The Poker Coach” McGowan couldn’t join us this week, but will be back for our next show). We also answered a listener e-mail about why Dennis revealed my cards to the other players on “High Stakes Poker.”
