Hershiser Attempts to Brush Back World’s Top Poker Pros

I know, I know. It just seems odd, doesn’t it? Nice guy Orel Hershiser just doesn’t seem to be the type of guy to bluff and challenge the world’s top poker pros, but that’s exactly what he will be doing at the 2008 National Heads-Up Poker Championship. NBC has announced that the tournament will once again take place at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas from February 29 through March 2, 2008. This just seems to be something that you’d see Jeff Kent doing.

But apparently his “Bulldog” nickname fits his poker personality as well! Check out this great blog post from a guy recounting his experiences with Orel at a 1-2 NL game. Just reading this makes all of us at salivate in anticipation of a back and forth trash-talking match with Phil Hellmuth at the end of the month.
