>> New National Heads-Up Poker Championship Set

Phil Hellmuth Returns as Previous Champion

January 25, 2006 (written by Haunted Poker)


Phill Hellmuth returns to set the stage for the 2nd annual National Heads-Up Poker Championship, which will be once again aired on NBC and CNBC. Going a different route, this tournament focuses on the more intimate heads-up format in which players square off one-on-one in No-Limit Texas Hold'em. The structure of the event is much like March Madness with brackets and seedings.


This is an invitation-only event for 64 of the top poker players in the world going head-to-head until an eventual champion is crowned. Actually, make that 63 and one lucky online satellite winner. Last year, it was Phil Hellmuth - the outspoken 9-time WSOP bracelet winner - taking it all. It will be held at the new Caesar's Palace poker room in Las Vegas in March and will air on the NBC networks in April.


Last year I took a look at this event on television but was disappointed that they only focused on one or two matches between the most interesting players to the network rather than actually show all the action. That and I think that the World Poker Tour was on the other channel. This year, I'll set up TiVo for both.
