In a segment that aired this morning on ABC’s Good Morning America, Phil Hellmuth and Annie Duke appeared to play poker with one of the show’s anchors, George Stephanopoulos. It’s “Living the Dream” week on the show where each of the anchors aims to cross one thing off of their bucket list. Stephanopoulos’ dream was to play poker against the pros.
He got his wish when Hellmuth and Duke, along with 2009 November Nine finalist Steve Begleiter and Jason ‘Jaspuduf’ Lee, sat down with him at a poker table in Harrah’s Atlantic City. On the line was the “Good Morning America” Poker Showdown trophy. Stephanopoulos outlasted Begleiter and Lee but succumbed to Hellmuth who went on to beat Duke heads-up.
After the recorded segment aired, Stephanopoulos told his co-hosts, “it was so much fun. They were all terrific.”
