I think Phil Gordon is cool too... Don't see too much of him on TV and stuff but I think he's got it set!

LOL, the only place I know Phil Gordan from is from celebrity poker showdown. He is one of the anouncers, the other announcer I don't think knows anything about poker, but is just there as entertainment. I like watching some of the awfull players who play there. I'll tell you this, hobits can't play poker. The actor who plays the blond hobbit in Lord Of Th Rings has to be the worst poker player I've ever seen. Phil Gordan, and me too, thought he was trying to bluff (at a bad time too) but when Phil talked to him, he actually thought he had a hand.

Haha...I completely forgot about celebrity poker! That's a nice show, it's fun at times cuz the actors are cool. Yeah not such a big fan of the cohost. He seems too feminine to be on tv! haha

I bet people are gonna send me hate mail for my remark!

Celeb poker rules!! Some of them end up playing quite well...but I think if I had to pick a horrible player, it was Colin Quin. First he is a horrible comic then a horrible player in poker as well!! He called EVERYTHING, no matter what! He actually almost ended up winning the entire tourny which would have been a shame, thank god his luck ended and he lost.

I think the hosts do a really good job with the show, the show has nice production values all around. I just wish they showed the %s, for some reason they leave that out.

If you listen closely, Phil Gordon usually gives the percentages as part of the commentary.

I Phil.

If you're interested, here's a recent article about Phil. Gives some background on his new DVD and information about him. (They could have picked a better picture though, IMHO).

Chris Katan (sp) from saturday night live.. he didn't know what was going on...

Colin Quinn was playing fine.. old school... and he made no bones about the fact that he just didn't care...

I think Phil Gordon is a solid player.. consistant...

And occasionally has better one liners than his cohost....oh wait, he is the cohost, right.. ??

Phil Gordon seems like a very interesting guy, more interesting than his book though (with writers it's usually the other way around). I hope he writes another book because I bet it would be better than the first one. He's led a very interesting life.

He actually has another book coming out very soon. Friend of mine has seen an advance copy and says it's great.
