Celebrity Poker switches Phils

I've seen some promos recently on Bravo for the new season of Celebrity Poker Showdown, and I'm dismayed to report that likable colorman Phil Gordon is out in favor of poker bad boy Phil Hellmuth.

Change is not unprecedented on the show, which dumped Kevin Pollak (and his ridiculous hat) for Dave Foley early in the going, but I'm sad to see Gordon go, though it was reportedly of his choosing, not Bravo's.

I can only guess that Phil Hellmuth will be on his Sunday best, reminiscent of his post-elimination turn at the play-by-play table of the 2002 World Series of Poker. However, it's just a matter of time before he totally loses it when a 10-4 sucks out on the river over pocket kings. Maybe he'll even punch Foley.
