Bernard Lee Signs With Foxwoods
February 9, 2022

Connecticut's Foxwoods Casino, North America's largest casino, recently announced that they have named poker pro and poker media personality Bernard Lee, their new official spokesperson for the property.

This new exciting title for the prolific Lee, is in many ways just one more of many hats to wear, as he is already not only an accomplished player but also the co-host of ESPN's Inside Deal; the writer of a weekly poker column; host of the Bernard Lee Poker Show podcast; and the author of two poker books- The Final Table, Volume I and Volume II.

"We're thrilled to add Bernard Lee to the Foxwoods team," said Mashantucket Pequot Gaming Enterprises (MPGE) President Michael Speller. "Bernard is such a compelling figure on the poker landscape, and we're certain that his expertise and talent will bring even more excitement and energy to the poker experience at Foxwoods."

Of all the major casinos out there, it makes sense that Lee would partner with Foxwoods.  Disregarding temporarily, his 13th place finish in the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2005, nearly all of Lee's major cashes happened in Mashantucket- as did all of his wins- including most notably, a first place finish in a $4,800 buy-in event in 2006, which landed him $368,919.

"If there is such a thing as home-court advantage in poker, for me it's at Foxwoods," Lee said. "I'm proud and humbled that Foxwoods would choose me to be their official spokesperson among the millions of poker players in the world."

As a result of this deal, Lee will now sport the Foxwoods logo at all participating tournaments and his podcast- part of the Rounders Radio Network- will officially be presented by Foxwoods.
