2011 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship Complete Field

Liv Boeree is one welcome addition to this year's NBC Heads-Up field...

The NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship announced its complete 2011 field today.

As always, there’s some “Way to get that right, nice call” additions and some complete head-scratchers.

A couple first-timers that fall into the welcome addition bucket would be the man the myth the legend, Black Phil Ivey, Big Sldick, the one and only Dwyte Pilgrim as well as Daniel “Jungleman12″ Cates. Pilgrim should infuse some much needed trash talk/fun to the show, and Cates is just a flat-out sick heads-up player.

Somehow still getting invites are former WSOP champs like Greg Raymer and “Salty” Joe Hachem, and high-stakes TV regulars like Eli Elezra and non-high stakes TV regulars Allen Cunningham and (albeit a great TV personality) Phil Gordon. And while you won’t find a person with a bad thing to say about Eugene Katchalov (auto-qualifier?) and Kara Scott, not sure the value they’re adding.

The one element that would add some increased buzz to the event is the celeb factor. Now, this is more challenging than you’d think, as the aforementioned celebs need to be available from Thursday March 3rd through Sunday March 6th and be willing to potentially drop at least a portion of the buy-in.

Regardless, there’s only so much Don Cheadle and Gabe Kaplan an audience can take. There’s plenty of younger Hollywood talent/personalities that could inject more mainstream interest in the field/broaden the audience for the show. Or get NBC to put stars from their properties in the event (surprised this hasn’t happened yet, actually).

Other positives for this year’s event: the buy-in has increased from $20,000 to $25,000, meaning that first will receive $750,000 (as opposed to $500,000).

    There are tons of laws found to be unconstitutional every
    year, concepts I call unc laws. When this happens, the round is essentially over, as
    the miner can no longer dig, and the scrolling
    screen quickly overtakes him. A smaller replica of the Statue
    of Liberty is placed in the village Visnes where the copper was mined to make the original statue.

    Hello would you mind letting me know which web host you’re
    using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different
    internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.

    Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I in finding this
    topic to be actually one thing which I think I’d by no means understand.
    It kind of feels too complex and extremely large for me.
    I am looking ahead on your subsequent post,
    I will attempt to get the grasp of it!

    The leading performance measurement companies (e.g.
    Frank Russell within the USA or BI-SAM 1 in Europe) compile aggregate industry
    knowledge, e.g., showing how funds typically performed towards given indices and peer teams over varied
    time intervals. The specialist efficiency measurement firms
    calculate quartile and decile knowledge and close attention would be paid to the (percentile) ranking of any fund.
