Huck Seed will face some extremely tough competition as he attempts to retain his Heads Up crown.
Organisers have announced the 64 players who will be battling for this year's National Heads Up Championship. The field includes no fewer than 12 former WSOP Main Event champions, numerous bracelet winners, cash game legends and a sprinkling of celebrities.There are a few notable names that are missing though. There's no place for recent PartyPoker Premier League winner David Benyamine, WPT Championship Yevgeniy Timoshenko or double WSOP Final Table finisher James Akenhead. Perhaps wanting a quiet life, organisers haven't invited Luke Schwartz either. Double bracelet winner JP Kelly is the only Briton to be invited to the party."The lineup of competitors for this year’s event is the best yet,” says Jon Miller, executive vice president of NBC Sports. "Continually bringing together the best of the best to compete in this unique format has made the National Heads-Up Poker Championship one of the most anticipated poker events of the year."The action takes place at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas from 5th to 7th March and will be televised later this year. The winner will take home a first prize of $500,000.The full line up is as follows:Patrick Antonius Eric Baldwin Andy Bloch Doyle Brunson * Joe Cada Johnny Chan Don Cheadle Allen Cunningham Pieter De-Korver Annie Duke Tom Dwan Peter Eastgate Eli Elezra Antonio Esfandiari Sam Farha Chris Ferguson Ted Forrest Jamie Gold Phil Gordon Barry Greenstein Bertrand Grospellier Joe Hachem Gus Hansen Jennifer Harman Phil Hellmuth Orel Hershiser Jesper Hougaard Phil Ivey John Juanda Gabe Kaplan John Paul Kelly Phil Laak Howard Lederer Erick Lindgren Mike Matusow Jason Mercier Dario Minieri Chris Moneymaker Darvin Moon Greg Mueller Daniel Negreanu Scotty Nguyen Annette Obrestad Brock Parker Dennis Phillips Greg Raymer Vanessa Rousso Kara Scott Huck Seed Erik Seidel Mike Sexton Gavin Smith Jennifer Tilly Paul Wasicka David Williams Leo Wolpert Jerry Yang They will be joined by seven Internet qualifiers. *Though invited to participate Doyle Brunson won't actually be taking part this year due to health reasons.
