Dennis Phillips was the chip leader heading into November 2008 World Series of Poker finale where he will be seated with eight other players who managed to advance from a pool of several thousand.

Phillips - a 53-year old truck salesman from Cottage Hills, Illinois  - is already driving away from this year's WSOP a millionaire.  The transplant from St. Louis, Missouri is an obvious St. Louis Cardinals fan, evidenced by the cap he wore throughout the tournament. 

"I'm ecstatic. What more could you ask for?"

If Phillips had his way, he'd finish it this week. But under a new format, the World Series is waiting four months. "I am so hyper and ready to go. I've been on a roll here lately. I would love to continue it," said Phillips. "But I understand it.…I don't have any problem with it."

Dennis Phillips only previous win at a major poker tournament was $2,386.00 at the 2007 WSOP Circuit Event - Grand Casino Tunica - where he placed 9th. 

He won his way into the Main Event through a satellite at Harrah's Casino in St. Louis.

But is Dennis Phillips bad for the World Series of Poker?  That's what the guys over at WickedChopsPoker seem to think:

Listen, Dennis Phillips may be the nicest guy in the world. He may have 12 super hot college-aged daughters who give b*** j*** to all house guests. He may have created the polio vaccine. He probably stormed the beaches at Normandy. He could very well be a great U.S. American.

But if Dennis Phillips ends up the winner of the 2008 WSOP Main Event, that would probably be Bad for PokerTM.

Again, no offense to Phillips. He could've invented the Internet for all we know. Or at least Internet porn. Perhaps he gives really sensual foot rubs. With lots of oil. Then softly kisses your neck. Caressing your hair...while blowing...in your ear.

Oh Dennis! You are such a bad, bad boy!

Wtf.

But Phillips has more of that earthy "just won the lottery now going to buy a 14 acre farm in Iowa" than that "let's go pop bottles with models for the next year and promote poker like a rock star" kind of look.

Whatever the case, we'll know in four long freaking months soon, as Phillips looks primed for a final table appearance, currently stacked over 11M.
