Lee's poker show celebrates one year on air

Bernard Lee

Poker pro Bernard Lee will celebrate the one-year anniversary of his poker radio show in Massachusetts this month with the help of special guests starting May 6.

The Bernard Lee Poker Show plays on 1510 AM The Zone in Massachusetts and will also premier on Rounders Radio this month, the largest streaming poker radio station in the world.

Stars from the poker world will be joining Lee on his show this month starting with J.C. Tran on Tuesday during the 6 p.m. ET live broadcast. Tran had an incredibly successful year in 2007 with four World Series of Poker cashes as well as a World Poker Tour win plus two other WPT final-table finishes.

This year Tran was one of the players featured on NBC's 2008 National Heads-Up Championship and narrowly missed making another televised WPT final table, going out in seventh place in the Bay 101 Shooting Star event.

On May 13, Lee will be joined by former WSOP champion Chris Moneymaker, who is celebrating the five-year anniversary of his win this year.

On May 20 Canadian poker pro and Team PokerStars member Daniel Negreanu will be the focus of a two-part interview.

The Bernard Lee Poker Show airs live from 6 to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and is replayed at 9 p.m. on Thursdays and 10 p.m. on Saturdays in New England, plus it airs online at 1510thezone.com.

Starting with the May 6 edition, the show will also be simulcast on RoundersRadio.com and be replayed at 3 p.m. ET on Wednesdays.

"Rounders Radio is pleased to add The Bernard Lee Poker Show to its solid list of poker programming available online," said Managing Director Ace Jones. "Bernard Lee is well-known in poker circles as a successful gentleman player with a cerebral approach to the game who can break things down for even the most casual player."

Lee is a Wayland, Mass., resident who first got his turn in the poker spotlight when he finished 13th in the 2005 World Series of Poker and became the top New England finisher. Pocketing $400,000 at the time, Lee has since built up his tournament earnings to more than $1.3 million.

Along with his poker career and poker talk show, Lee has been an instructor for the WPT boot Camp and a poker commentator and poker columnist for the Boston Herald and ESPN.com.

Lee will be releasing his first book in June, titled The Final Table Volume I, which is a compilation of his Sunday Boston Herald poker columns of the same name.
