Today on my poker radio show, The Final Table, while I was sitting at a table at Harrah’s St. Louis, Dennis Phillips was on the phone from the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.
As play got under way today, he took time away from the Main Event to talk with me, Joe “The Poker Coach” McGowan, and our friend Larry Conners, the dean of St. Louis anchorman (he’s on KMOV-TV-4), who also plays a lot of poker. Larry was in a game at Harrah’s today hoping to hit the bad beat jackpot, which is over $410,000!
We talked about the WSOP Circuit Event that Harrah’s will host in April, as well as some changes at a Bellagio tournament this spring that will be made up of nothing but re-buy events. Then, as Dennis went back to play, Joe and I answered e-mail from a listener who wanted to know how he could have avoided running into trouble when he flopped trip jacks.
