NBC Releases Heads-Up Broadcast Details

NBC Releases Heads-Up Broadcast Details 0001

NBC has released more information on its upcoming series of broadcasts of the fourth annual NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, which was contested at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas early last month. The latest release includes both the specific air times for the six consecutive weeks of heads-up action, plus a listing of the "featured" match-ups for the first two episodes, which cover the opening round of 64.

This year's championship was won by Chris Ferguson, who won a best-of-three final against Andy Bloch. The series will also likely feature on the deep run made by former LA Dodgers great Orel Hershiser, who advanced to the quarterfinals before being eliminated by Bloch.
