Kinda disappointed that Patrik Antonious is not participating, but he actually doesn't seem like great heads up player. It would be fun to see Helmuth vs. Dwan.

Patrick is on that list, look at the end of the forth line! You better buy some glasses with your next big win. Big Smile I believe Chris Ferguson can surprise some of the players and get to a good position, but, one thing is for sure, there are many pros going there. Gus Hansen, Daniel Negreanu, Patrick Antonius, Allen Cunningham... this will not be easy for anyone!

Definitley one to watch! They need to get Isildur on their to spice things up a lil bit! Big Smile regardless there's alot of great players taking part, so def looking forward 2 this one!

Antonius is on the list, but never did anything in the last years there. Fergusson is a very good heads up player who will be one of the big favorites. Unfortunately the tourney is all about luckboxing in the first few rounds.

good luck all and be happy Smile

Leeann Tweeden wow shes hot.
Still thats some line up they have got there,yeah thats gonna make good watching. Some big names going head to head...thats something you dont see that much any more, i mean the fields are so big now you dont normally see the pro's have it all there own way, so getting them all (some good ones) together will fire up the action.... and they all think there great heads up so should be great T.V.
 GeneYuss01/03/2010 02:17:20 GMT
Ya, Leeann Tweeden is hot Smile

How do they decide on the list? They should poker babe headsup poker championship Smile
