LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 24, 2010) - High Stakes cash game legend Phil 'OMGClayAiken' Galfond recently joined the crew of PKR TV to commentate on some of the best ring game poker action on PKR.com, including footage from a special 'Galfond TV Cash Game'.

The three episodes are now scheduled to go out across 27 European countries on The Poker Channel from March 8-21, 2010. In the UK and Ireland, the airtimes are (GMT) 22:00-23:00 and 01:30-02:00 Monday through Friday and 00:00-01:00 Saturday and Sunday. In Europe, the shows can be seen Monday thru Friday at 19:00 – 20:00 and from 02:00 – 03:00. On the weekends, the shows air at 13:00-14:00 and again at 01:00-02:00.

Renowned for his prowess in high stakes cash games Galfond, also known as 'jman' on the 2+2 Forums, shared his poker wisdom on both the regular PKR cash game table and a high stakes special where players sat down with buy-ins of $1,000 to $5,000.

Beside his cash success, Galfond also has six World Series cashes and a WSOP bracelet to his name. Having founded the BuefirePoker.com training site with Billy Murphy in January 2009, Galfond and his team of pro players provide in-depth poker strategy analysis through instructional videos. In March 2009 they signed a partnership deal with PKR.com with the next-gen online poker site taking the role of exclusive European partner.

Marketing Manager Erika Schwartz said, "It was fantastic to see Phil in action in the PKR TV studios. Players and spectators alike will really enjoy his commentary, and possibly pick up a trick or two. We are very excited to be able to offer this to all our European viewers.'
