Dennis Phillips, born 1953 is an amateur poker player from St. Louis, MO. Phillips came to the forefront of the poker world in 2008 when he headed into the final table of the WSOP Main Event as the chip leader, where he eventually finished third.
Phillips works as an account manager for Broadway Trucks, a commercial trucking company in St. Louis, and is known for his signature St. Louis Cardinals hat. His run in the 2008 WSOP was well documented by both poker and mainstream media alike, as Phillips won his entry into the main event on a $200 satellite at a local casino.
Despite frequent pigeon-holing as “the everyman”, since his 2008 finish Phillips has gone on to achieve extraordinary performance in other live tournaments, with over $5 million it total tournament earnings including a 45th place finish at the 2009 WSOP main event.
