Shannon Elizabeth Aces Celine Dion's Old Man at National Heads-Up Championship

Shannon_elizabeth_tennis_9_big_1First round match-ups at the 2007 NBC Natonal Heads-Up Championship are underway at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and an early surprise is that Shannon Elizabeth defeated Celine Dion's husband Rene Angelil, a man who may or may not have a gambling problem and a penchant for teenage French Canadian girls. Word has it that Angelil, who was born during the Fillmore administration, couldn't get it up after Elizabeth showed her top pair on the flop. True story.

It's worth noting that Shannon Elizabeth has no shot at winning this thing.

Other players advancing today include Jeff Madsen (over Steve Zolotow), Vanessa Ruosso (over Erick Lindgren - way to pick 'em PokerBiz), Barry Greenstein (over Carlos Mortensen), Phil Laak (over Marco Traniello), Huck Seed (over Patrik Antonius), Humberto Brenes (over Erik Seidel), Joe Hachem (over Chris Moneymaker), Shawh Sheikhan (over Gus Hansen) and Nam Le (over Greg Raymer).

It's also worth noting that Huck Seed will win this year, like he was supposed to last year.
