Some of the best heads up players in the world will be heading to The Vic in November for the latest World Heads Up Poker Championship, which this year is being run in association with GUKPT.

The two-handed series will run from 19th to 24th November with the eventual winner having to see off seven opponents in order to claim the title.

Organisers of the event have also confirmed that they have tied up a two-year deal with the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) with the Heads Up Championship being held as part of the GUKPT Grand Final that runs at The Vic from 18th to 28th November.

The buy-in for the World Heads Up is €2,000+€200 with a series of qualifiers and satellites running at and throughout the iPoker network.
