Bord and Boeree make NBC Heads Up line up

Thursday, 24 February 2011

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.
