Chris Ferguson, who won the 2008 NBC Heads-Up Poker Championship after runner-up finishes in previous years, will host the tournament.

A maximum of 64 players will be allowed to compete in the tournament and no byes will be issued. If more than 32 players signup but the field doesn’t reach 64 the first 32 will be seated in the tournament while those who signed up afterwards will be given a refund. Full Tilt Poker is encouraging players to sign up early to guarantee themselves a seat.

Not everyone will have to pony up the $25,000 buy-in, as Full Tilt Poker will be offering $500 + $35 qualfiers on Thurday, May 22 and Friday, May 23. The qualifiers will start at 3:00 PM EST on both days.

Full Tilt Poker pros Jennifer Harman, Phil Ivey, and Howard Lederer have confirmed that they will be participating in the event. Recordings will be made of the most important hands and matchups in the tournament with commentary to be provided after the event by Phil Gordon and Ali Nejad.

This will prove to be one of the most entertaining and unique tournaments in the history of online poker.
