Poker Den begins Monday

Phil Hellmuth will stick around in London to play in the Poker Den.

Even after the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event final table wraps up today in London it won't mean the end of big-money poker in the city. On Monday, the Poker Den will begin filming its 24-hour cash game.

"All eyes are still expected to be on Phil Hellmuth as many pros insist that they would travel from Mars to take on the world's greatest tournament player in a cash game," said the spokesperson.

Hellmuth has a record 11 WSOP bracelets, and though he failed to get a 12th in the World Series of Poker Europe, he still made a lasting impression when he showed up to the Main Event with a bevy of 12 women dressed as cops to escort him into the room.

The one extra woman to represent the gold bracelet he hoped to add to his wrist wasn't enough to make it come true, however.

Now he'll have to work on proving himself at the Poker Den filming instead. He certainly made an impression in the inaugural Poker Den.

"After failing to win a significant pot for 12 hours last time around in the den, the Poker Brat was probably trying to find Jesus," said the PartyPoker spokesperson. "This time, if he needs divine intervention, he'll only have to look to his left or right and find Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, but who he's more likely to find is his old sparring partner, the Devilfish."

Joining the players will be Jesse May, who will lead the commentary with a selection of the pros joining him throughout the 24-hour game.
