2010 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship Bracket

Despite a lackluster field (too many online qualifiers), there are still some good Round 1 Match-Ups.

Lots more to come from the 2010 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship draw party from last night, but for now, click the above image to view the draw.

Some interesting first round match-ups include: Peter Eastgate vs. ElkY, Gavin Smith vs. Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu vs. Jason Mercier, Phil Gordon vs. Tom Dwan, and Howard Lederer vs. Phil Hellmuth.

UPDATE: Here are some tweets from players on their bracket/draw:
Barry Greenstein (accidentally tweeting instead of texting Phil Ivey, who wasn’t there):

You play Gavin Smith in your first match. Plays a lot of small ball, limping style, which plays right into your strength. I’ll tell you …

Daniel Negreanu:

Super tough match for me in Jason Mercier. I have a tough bracket Gavin Ivey Scotty Hachem Chan Durr Laak Juanda Sexton de Korver.

Phil Hellmuth:

Enjoying chatting poker tactics w Cantu, the Maven, Ted Forrest, and Huck Seed! @realkidpoker right, I needed to learn “New school Hold’em”

Brian Balsbaugh:

Overheard at NBC HU draw party: I just realized if a bomb went off here, Larry Flynt would be the best poker player in the world
