NBC Heads-Up

On Thursday, Jan. 24, 64 invited poker players will take to action for the 2013 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship. On Wednesday night, the draw party was held to determine the first-round matches. The competitors were divided into four regions, appropriately deemed Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts and Spades, and PokerNews will be recapping the rounds as they go.

Please note that, on Wednesday, Daniel Negreanu opted out of playing the event, making room for the addition of David "Doc" Sands. Jennfier Harman has also pulled out of the competition, and Tom Marchese will be filling her slot.
