The Following Headline Is Not a Joke:
Shannon Elizabeth Among Elite 8 in NBC National Heads Up Championship

Shannonelizabeth_1Shannon Elizabeth, a woman, and Kristy Gazes, also a woman, are among the Elite 8 in the NBC National Heads Up Poker Championship.

Elizabeth's improbable run began when she defeated that creepy old guy married to Celine Dion in round 1. She then beat phenom Jeff Madsen. And then in what is possibly the biggest upset in the history of known man, she beat Barry Greenstein in the Sweet 16.

Elizabeth is joined in the Elite 8 by Kristy Gazes, another woman. Kristy defeated Clonie Gowan, a woman, Isabelle Mercier, a woman, and Scott Fischman, not a woman, to advance.

Huck Seed, our pick to win two years running, was eliminated by Humberto Brenes in the Sweet 16.

Today's match-ups are:

Shannon Elizabeth vs. Humberto Brenes
Paul Wasicka vs. Nam Le
Andy Bloch vs. Gavin Smith
Kristy Gazes vs. Chad Brown
