November Nine Chip Leader on Ebay?

by Poker Team

The odds-on favorite and chip leader heading into the WSOP final table this November, Dennis Phillips announced today that he’s seeking a corporate sponsor to help spread the word about the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. How is he going to connect with this potential sponsor? Ebay,of course!

While his press release states that the auction is set to begin today, it’s not yet listed at the time of this writing. Regardless, it’s an interesting method to gain a new corporate sponsor. The winner of the auction will gain prominent placement on his jersey, which he will wear for the duration of the televised final table, come November.

A long-time proponent of MS research, Dennis first found his passion to support funding to fight the illness when his brother was diagnosed 10 years ago. Having already committed 1% of his winnings to the “Put a bad beat on Cancer” organization, which will be matched 100% by Poker Stars, he’s also donating 100% of the proceeds of this sponsorship to the National MS Society.

It would be nice to see other members of the “November Nine” such as Chino Rheem make such an offer. Time will tell if the remaining members of the final table will follow suit.
