Phil Gordon To Leave Celebrity Poker Showdown

The rumors were true. All In magazine reports that Phil Gordon is officially leaving Celebrity Poker Showdown

The only question left now is, "What poker show will we continue not watching?"

Gordon1_1Actually, the real question is, "Who will replace the affable co-host?"

Word on the street (and by "street", we mean "All In" magazine) is that Phil Hellmuth could be "filling" in for Gordon. 

Tiltboy Gordon said his reasons for leaving the show included the amount of time and energy required for him to run for President of the United States of America in 2008*.  He also suggested that any of the writers for Wicked Chops Poker would make a fantastic replacement for him on Celebrity Poker Showdown**.  That way, as he says, "They can deal with idiots like Scott Stapp every week, cause I'm freaking over it."

*Completely false. / **Also false. / ***Quote made up but likely true anyway.
