Final Table #40: Phil Hellmuth


This week on my poker radio show, The Final Table, Dennis Phillips and I talked with Phil Hellmuth, owner of 11 World Series Of Poker bracelets, who is coaching Jeff Shulman in his attempt to win the final table of the 2009 WSOP Main Event this weekend.

Hellmuth revealed the methods he's using to help Shulman, what he thinks his friend Phil Ivey's strategy will be, and his thoughts about the other members of the November Nine.

Dennis also asked Hellmuth for advice on playing "High Stakes Poker," which they both will be part of in at least one session next week, and I asked him whether players at the table ever have a piece -- a percentage -- of each other, which could make things awkward. And we discussed Hellmuth's criticism of Harrah's moving into the online poker business.

Then Dennis and I talked with Joe "The Poker Coach" McGowan for more analysis and all of our predictions of who will win the main event finale. Dennis and Joe will be in Las Vegas for all of the final table action, and will report on it from there for our show next Tuesday.
