NBC National Heads Up Poker Championship: Cancellation of the tournament
After seven very successful editions, the edition 2012 of the tournament NBC National Heads Up Poker Championship will not happen. This news announced by the new communications director of the chain, Adam Frefeild will certainly disappoint fans of the circuit. Indeed, the NBC Heads'Up Championship is a popular television event series that took place in the poker room of Caesars Palace and every tournament brought together the best 64 players. Each edition of the tournament offers to viewer an unprecedented show because the tournament faced two players in duel. The inaugural stage won by Phil Hellmtuh took place in 2005. The event has always brought together top players and the winners of the various editions were always professional players like Ted Forrest, who won the victory in 2006, Paul Wasicka in 2007, Chris Ferguson in 2008, Juck Seed in 2009, Annie Duke in 2010 and Erik Seidel during the last edition.
Many celebrities as Jason Alexander, Brad Garrett, Shannon Elizabeth, Rene Angelil, Gabe Kaplan, James Woods, Jerry Buss, Don Cheadle, Orel Hershiser and Emmitt Smith were also among the regulars of the circuit. The Black Friday and the problems faced by online poker rooms, sponsors of the event were the reasons of the cancellation. Note that two other poker shows including Poker After Dark and The Big Game has been canceled this year. Fans still hope the return of these events in the coming years.
