Have a flutter on the NBC Heads-up Championship

Have a flutter on the NBC Heads-up Championship

Tuesday, 2 March 2010

According to SkyBet, Phil Ivey and 2009 NBC Heads-up Champion Huck Seed are favourites to win the event in 2010, with odds of 10/1 on both players. Next up are Chris Ferguson (12/1) followed by Antonius, Hellmuth and Dwan at 16/1 apiece.

In the televised NBC tournament, 64 players will play down to just one via a series of best of three heads-up matches. However, they are played with quite shallow stacks and fast blinds so the action could go any which way.
Personally, our bet is on Dario Minieri. At 25/1, we think the heads-up tournament specialist is well-poised to take down the event, and a small bet on him wouldn’t go amiss. Nor Tom “durrrr” Dwan at 16/1 or former champion Chris Ferguson at 12/1.

Online qualifier Andrew Wilson has had results in the poker tournament circuit beforehand, though, and he’s 150/1. Might be worth sticking a quid or two on.
