Bernard Lee is a very, very busy man and he's going to be much busier this year. Lee has served as the “Voice of the WSOP Circuit” during their Main Event final table live streams, he's celebrating the sixth anniversary of his hit radio show this month — The Bernard Lee Poker Show — and he just signed on as a part of Team RunGoodGear for the 2013 World Series of Poker.
“I’m honored to be a part of the RunGood team, and look forward to working with the company as it becomes the premiere apparel company in the industry,” Lee said.
In our "Where are they now Series" in 2010 we profiled Lee and this is as true now as it was then:
"In the world of poker we have the newcomers, the occasional player, people who play a lot, but consider themselves just a player, and we have professional poker players and professionals that play poker. Bernard Lee certainly isn’t a newcomer or just a player — what he is, is a media professional that plays professional poker."
Lee is a hit and has put his mark on the great game of poker — you may remember his 13th place finish in the 2005 World Series of Poker — and he's signed a new deal with RunGoodGear.com, an Oklahoma-based poker apparel company, that is also signing on as a sponsor of The Bernard Lee Poker Show.
“We are thrilled to have Bernard be part of the RunGood team this year. His addition brings a veteran element for on and off the felt. Plus, we hear he’s pretty good on a mic too,” said Tana Karn, the chief executive officer of RunGoodGear.com.
Before heading to Sin City to represent RunGoodGear Lee will be celebrating the sixth anniversary of The Bernard Lee Poker Show. The show airs in Massachusetts from 7-8 p.m. EST on Tuesdays and is simulcast on Rounders Radio during May. Lee will have four special guests to add to his celebration:
- Chris Moneymaker, the 2003 WSOP Main Event champion (who will discuss the 10th anniversary of his epic victory)
- 2012 WSOP Main Event fifth-place finisher Jeremy Ausmus
- 2012 WSOP bracelet winner Brent Hanks
- 2008 World Poker Tour (WPT) Player of the Year Jonathan Little
