Dennis Phillips to Commentate NACPT Final Table
Top Pro Set To Give Commentary on Dec. 11 Final Table Live Broadcast
Note: This story originally reported that Robert Williamson III would commentate on the final table. He can no longer make it to be a part of the live broadcast.
The Native American Casino Poker Tour Choctaw $1,000 no-limit hold’em main event is set to begin on Dec. 10, and CardPlayer.com will host a live-streaming broadcast of the first ever NACPT final table on Dec. 11. Multiple cameras will bring you all the action as the final players battle it out to win the title, the money, entry into the 2012 WSOP Circuit Choctaw and the bragging rights of being featured on the cover of Card Payer magazine.
2008 World Series of Poker main event third place finisher Dennis Phillips will be there to help provide live commentary during the final table broadcast.
Phillips has lifetime earnings of just under $5.1 million, but after being thrust into the limelight as a member of the inaugural November Nine, has spent a lot of time as an ambassador for the game. He co-hosts a radio show called “The Final Table” with Paul Harris on Tuesdays, 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. CT on 590 The Fan KFNS/St. Louis, which has had 148 episodes.
“I’m excited to come down,” said Phillips, “I’ve known Choctaw’s Director of Poker Ken Lambert for years, and I know that it will be a quality production with Choctaw teaming up with Card Player.”
With Phillips providing analysis, it is sure to be an exciting final table broadcast. Go to the NACPT landing page on CardPlayer.com on Dec. 11 to follow all the final table action.
