This week on the Final Table radio show, Dennis Phillips and I were in the Harrah’s St. Louis Poker Room to talk about his experience in the Canadian Poker Open in Calgary and a tournament at the Hollywood Casino outside of Cincinnati. We also discussed the heated feud between the Poker Players Alliance and the Commerce Casino over the online poker legislation passed earlier this month in Barney Frank’s congressional committee.
Our guest today was Matt Jarvis, another one of this year’s November Nine for the Main Event of the World Series Of Poker. Since Matt was at the Canadian Poker Open with Dennis and won the $5,000 buy-in heads-up event, we talked about that before delving into how he hung on to make the November Nine, who he has helping him prepare for that final table, and how he almost didn’t play in the WSOP at all because his father got seriously ill.
Finally we reveal the results of some online research to figure out which poker pro has won the most, and who has lost the most, over the six seasons of “High Stakes Poker.” Got a guess?
