Heads Up Poker Tournament on NBC

The major networks are starting to cash in on the poker bonanza as NBC has announced that it will air the 2005 National Heads-Up Poker Championship in May. The tournament will pit 64 of the best poker players against one another in a heads up tournament. Once everyone gets done with their college basketball brackets in March and April, they can start filling out their poker brackets for May. Gambling on other people gambling, now that sounds like some good clean fun. I wonder how they determine the brackets, if its just random seeding, or if the players are somehow ranked. I wonder how much more publicity promotion poker can sustain before people get bored and move on to the next big thing. Anyway, check out the article from the Las Vegas Sun.
