Phil Hellmuth will try to take down another Poker After Dark title this week.Tonight, another new batch of Poker After Dark episodes will air on NBC at 2:05 a.m., featuring players who have a reputation for being anything but quiet.

The self-proclaimed greatest player in the world, Phil Hellmuth, will take on five other vocal competitors — Todd Brunson, Phil Gordon, David Grey, Gabe Kaplan, and Cory Zeidman — with a winner-takes-all $120,000 on the line.

Not only are the six players known for speaking their minds, many of them have personal history with others at the table. Zeidman and Kaplan got into a feud after Kaplan criticized Zeidman’s play on High Stakes Poker, and Hellmuth and Gordon have never been shy of engaging one another when they’re at the same table.

Hellmuth and Kaplan are both competing for their third PAD title in a six-handed format, while it is Brunson and Zeidman’s first time on the show. Gordon is 0-3, while Grey finished second in his only previous appearance.

Last week, the new season of Poker After Dark debuted, featuring players who came close, but ultimately failed to win the World Series of Poker main event. Mike Matusow won the six-handed tournament, beating Andy Black heads up.

After this week’s new episodes, a set of reruns will air next week. The next batch of new episodes will premiere on Feb. 9, with an episode entitled, “Brilliant Minds,” featuring Chris Ferguson and Andy Bloch.
