Phil “Poker Brat” Hellmuth Jr is going to be facing off with FS1 Host Nick Wright in High Stakes Poker Duel scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, July 28th.
The reason this match-up is so compelling is that FS1’s Nick Wright is not a professional poker player. Phil has no idea how he plays, what he’s capable of nor does he have a history with Nick Wright. So this time around, Phil Hellmuth will have to come ultra prepared against a mysterious opponent in Nick Wright.
