List Released For NBC Heads-Up Invitational
Group Consists Of Poker Professionals And Celebrity Players
The list of poker players for the 2013 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship was released Friday. Some of poker’s biggest names will be at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Jan. 24 to compete in a single-elimination bracket.
The bracket for the 64 entrants will be determined, at random, the evening of Jan. 23.
Here’s a look at the players:
|2||Jean Robert Bellande|
|17||Will “The Thrill” Failla|
|22||Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier|
The TV episodes will begin airing in March and run for six consecutive weeks.
Phil Hellmuth won the first running of the event in 2005, followed by Ted Forrest (2006), Paul Wasicka (2007), Chris Ferguson (2008), Huck Seed (2009), Annie Duke (2010) and Erik Seidel (2011). Forrest, Wasicka, Ferguson and Duke will not be returning this year.
The event did not run in 2012 in the wake of online poker’s Black Friday.
Players not on the list either declined their invitation or weren’t offered a seat. After the list was announced, poker pro David Sands took to Twitter in frustration.
Very annoyed that I didn’t get invited to play in the NBC heads up event. Absurd to me that they don’t auto-invite the top 10 in the GPI
