Apparently his contract expired and he decided he wanted to pursue other ventures.
"I no longer have any contracted obligations to the producers of Celebrity Poker Showdown, so I am ready to move on… After 42 episodes of Celebrity Poker, I just want to see people play in turn, bet more than $200 into a $5K pot, and know when they have the nuts. Nothing would give me greater pleasure than saying 'Phil Hellmuth loses another big pot, and it looks like he's ready to implode!' on national television."
