May 2014 is the seven year anniversary month for The Bernard Lee Poker Show. Since 2007 the famous poker professional and media personality has been entertaining listeners with a multitude of interviews with players and other familiar industry names. The show airs weekly at 6pm Eastern Time, with radio replays on Thursday and Saturday, and an online replay on Friday; it is sponsored by Foxwoods Resort Casino.

A Month of Celebration

Lee has been re-tweeting anniversary congratulations from his followers. On 6 May 2014 he also tweeted a link to the Casino Times article about the celebrations. The article highlighted the forthcoming sponsored World Series of Poker (WSOP) interviews which have been arranged specially, in honor of the occasion.

  • 6 May 2014 – Phil Hellmoth talking about his victory over Johnny Chan as a 24-year-old in 1989.
  • 13 May 2014 – Greg Raymer remembering his fossils and sunglasses WSOP win in 2004.
  • 20 May 2014 – Joe Cada reflecting on being the youngest ever WSOP Main Event winner in 2009.
  • 27 May 2014 – Ryan Reiss speaking about his 2013 championship.

The Man Behind the Magic

New York born Lee first came to the attention of poker aficionados in 2005 with his 13th place finish in the WSOP. Since then he has been a regular poker columnist for the Boston Herald. His media experience also includes working for Poker; he co-hosts their weekly poker show ESPN Inside Deal.

Away from the media spotlight Lee now lives in Boston with his wife and two children where he also makes a living providing private poker instruction.

A Win to Mark the Anniversary

In a display of very good timing Lee had his latest victory on 1 May 2014. The vastly experienced professional was delighted to celebrate his first WSOP Circuit gold ring. This success added to career wins in excess of $2 million. Lee’s success seems to have been assisted by his positive attitude and undoubted intellect.

The Harvard graduate, who went on to gain an MBA at Babson College, left a profitable career as a Senior Marketing Manager to make a life in poker. Despite all his success at the tables, and his continuing media career, Lee still manages to have a life outside of the game. He is a major feature of the world of poker but his world as a lot more in it.
