Question Phil Hellmuth on Celebrity Poker Showdown

What do you think of Phil Hellmuth as the poker pro on CPS? I liked Gordon better. He was a better foil for the Dave Foley. I just don't find him as engaging.

I think he needs a haircut.

I've only watched one episode so far, and I wasn't really impressed. He seemed really stiff, like he was watching what he said, etc.

Besides, no one can replace Phil Gordon...
Whether he likes it or not, a mans character is stripped at the poker table; if the other players read him better than he does, he has only himself to blame. Unless he is both able and prepared to see himself as others do, flaws and all, he will be a loser in cards, as in life. ~Anthony Holden

I keep trying to have an open mind about him. Knowing his behavior from tournaments, though, it's hard not to think of that while watching CPS.
With all the personable poker players, I just can't help but wonder why they chose him...

Wow, I totally did NOT see this post. Sorry BBP for making a duplicate. But it seems like you already found it and deleted it. Thanks.

YEa, I like Hellmuth better. WHy? Not sure. Probably just b/c he's more popular. He doesnt really get to improv much. i think he's just reading cards most of the time. I like that show though. I love to see how BAD the celebrities are at poker.!! HAHA.

I like Hellmuth better, he seems to go more depth with the poker aspect of the show. Of course he doesnt have the same kind of chemistry with Foley but I think that will come once they do more shows together.
