Organisers have confirmed the final line up for the forthcoming NBC Heads Up Poker Championship and there are a couple of very familiar faces from this side of the pond, namely Liv Boeree and James Bord.
The EPT San Remo and WSOPE Main Event winners join a top class 64-runner field that is a veritable who's who of TV poker talent and includes the likes of Phil Ivey, Huck Seed, Tom Dwan and Daniel Negreanu.
As usual there is a sprinkling of celebrities amongst the professionals including actors Jason Alexander and Don Cheadle and former NFL star Emmitt Smith.
The buy-in for invited players has increased this year from $20,000 to $25,000, which means that the first-place finisher will receive $750,000, up from $500,000 in last year’s competition and second place will take home $300,000, up from $250,000.
The complete line up is as follows:
