nbc.jpgThe NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship kicks off today, with 64 of the most skilled and talented poker players competing to be the last one standing. The matchups for today’s opening matches were revelealed last night at the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship Pairing Party, held at the nightclub Pure, in the Caesar’s Palace casino. There are four brackets in the competition, 16 players to a bracket. The hearts bracket begins at 10:15 a.m, the diamonds bracket at 1:15 p.m., the clubs bracket at 4:15 p.m and the spades bracket at 6:45 p.m. There are a few celebrities mixed in with the professional poker players, and will probably be the easiest competition to overcome, although they will not be assured victories as tehy all come with poker skills of their own.
