NBC Heads-Up Championship Under Way


The 2nd Annual NBC National Heads Up Poker Championship got underway at Caesars on Saturday and will draw to a close Monday, March 6. Click on the above image to get a closer look at some of the epic round 1 pairings as well as brackets that are guaranteeing this to be a first-rate championship. Kudos by the way to 21-year-old Josh Lochner of Ft. Lauderdale who won the NBC Heads-Up online tourney to earn a seat among the world's best poker players. For those who can't wait until the 6 episodes air on NBC, starting April 16 through May 21, head over to CardPlayer.com for live action updates. As we type, they are down to the Sweet 16.

For those who don't want any spoilers until it airs on TV, well, then we won't tell you that Phil Hellmuth, the defending champ...

... flamed out in the first round against the great Chip Reese.

disappointingly i didn't get to it in time...altho i was predicting that hellmuth would flame out before round 3, ferguson would represent again and that someone like Barry G, Huck Seed, or Allen C. would take the title, but only if hot streak players like the Grinder and Tuan Le could be stopped early. would have been interesting to see who i would have had in my final four if i had done so in time.
