2010 NBC Heads Up TrophyOne of the most exciting, fun poker tournaments of the year is less than 24 hours away, and CardPlayer.com wants to help build the excitement and give our readers an extra reason to root on their favorite players.

The 2010 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship is tentatively scheduled to kick off Friday at 1 p.m. PT, and we’re hosting a free NBC Heads-Up bracket contest for our readers to submit their predictions. What’s more, whoever makes the best picks and tops the leader board can win a share of around $1,000 in prizes. The top 10 finishers on the bracket leader board will snag prizes. (See the full list of prizes below.)

We’ll periodically announce the leader-board leaders in our live updates, so you might see your name (or screen name) in our live coverage! You also can visit our NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship landing page to get information about the event and view previous years’ brackets for players’ track records in the event.

RULES:

Go to the bracket website here and click “Predict It!” in the upper-left to submit your bracket

The tournament is scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. PT on Friday, March 5, so that’s the deadline for bracket prediction submissions. (If the event starts earlier, brackets submitted after the event starts will not be counted.)

All you have to do is pick a winner for each single-elimination match. (Since they’re single-elimination, you don’t need to type in anything in the “Score” field.) The final heads-up match is a best-of-three game, so please enter a score there to be used as a possible tie-breaker.

Chris Ferguson Winning the 2008 NBC Heads UpEach bracket’s score is determined by adding 1 point for each correctly predicted first-round game, then doubling for each additional round (for instance, 2 points for second-round games, 4 points for third-round games, and so on). In the event that multiple people end with the same leader-board score and the same tie-breaker answer, the winner will be determined by the bracket that had the most correct players in the Final Four (and, if still tied, the Elite Eight, and so on). If that final step doesn’t resolve a tie, the tie will be broken through a random drawing.

It's not even the best heads up competition let alone anything else. This single elimination format ensures that it relies mainly on luck. At least in a double elimination a player can get a run of bad cards and still have a chance in the loser's bracket. Even the PKR Heads Up Slam was really deep stacked so there was masses of play, this is a non-event for me and not living in the US I won't even get to see it anyway.
