Second National Heads
Up Poker Championship
Premieres
In two short years, the National Heads Up Poker Championship has captured
the attention of not only the poker community but the television audience as
well. Last year's No Limit Hold'em event, broadcast during the month of May,
drew an average of four million viewers over the six hours that were
broadcast. The two hour finale, which featured the stirring battle between
Chris "Jesus" Ferguson and eventual champion Phil Hellmuth, was watched
by over six million viewers. NBC, thrilled with the success of the first
tournament, will launch the airing of the Second National Heads Up Poker
Championship starting this Sunday from Noon-1PM (Eastern Time).

Indicating their commitment to the tournament, the coverage by NBC has
been expanded to ten hours this year and the series will continue until the
two hour final match up on Sunday, May 21st. The format has also seemed to
be a winner with poker fans worldwide as a field of 64 players battle in
heads up matches. The players are placed in a four bracket arrangement,
much like the NCAA Basketball Championship, and play until two survivors
meet in a best two out of three series to determine the champion.

The premiere on Sunday will feature competition in the first round between
many of the greats in the game today including defending Heads Up
champion Phil Hellmuth, 2005 Heads Up runner-up Chris Ferguson, and 2005
World Series Ladies Event and WPT Ladies' Night Champion Jennifer Tilly.
Other professionals involved in the play of the first broadcast will be Paul
Phillips, Josh Arieh and current Player of the Year leader Michael "The Grinder"
Mizrachi.

While the first episode will feature the play of these poker legends, the
inaugural broadcast will also highlight the players that will be playing
throughout the event. Such luminaries as Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chan, Barry
Greenstein and acclaimed actor/poker player James Woods will be featured
during the broadcast of later episodes. The broadcast will also follow the
journey of the "wild card" qualifiers who played in the event, including online
tournament winner Josh Lochner, the 21 year old who earned his way into
the event and found himself among the giants of the poker world.

It seems that there is poker, poker everywhere for the viewers this Easter
weekend in the United States! Over the next six weeks, everyone will have
the opportunity to see just what happened when the National Heads Up
Poker Championship played out at Caesars Palace last month. For more
