Event #35 - $10k NLHE Heads Up Championship Day 1 complete

Saturday, 19 June 2010

One of the most eagerly awaited events of this year's WSOP, the $10k NLHE Heads Up World Championship, got under way yesterday. A total of 256 players bought in with 64 players returning for day two.

Among the survivors are ElkY, Phil Gordon, Gavin Smith, Max Lykov and Antonio Esfandiari. Andrew Feldman is on course to pay back some of his recent court fees after an impressive opening day. Fellow Britons Darren Woods and Chris Moorman will also be back for the next round of matches.

Tom Dwan will have to wait at least one more event to take a bracelet after losing to Andrew Rosskamm in the second round. Joining Durrrr on the rail were the likes of John Juanda, Joe Cada and John Duthie. Spare a thought too for Michael 'The Grinder' Mizrachi. His $10,000 investment lasted a total of two hands after his pocket nines couldn't outrun Phil Ivey's AJ.

Winners of the next set of matches will make the money. The full draw is as follows:
