    Phil Gordon went back to playing full time...

    Phil Hellmuth is a World Series of Poker champion and nine time bracelet winner. I don't like him as much as Gordon, but it might take a while for Dave and the new Phil to get a good chemistry going.

    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."
