NBCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 5th Annual National Heads-Up Poker Championship presented by GoDaddy.com airs the finale episode this Sunday, May 17 at Noon – 3PM ET (Check local listings for PT).
The final table features former World Series of Poker main event champion Huckleberry Seed (yes, his real name) taking on former law student turned poker pro Vanessa Rousso. Rousso is the first female competitor to reach the final table. She was recently signed as a GoDaddy spokesperson, alongside Danica Patrick, and appeared in an advertorial for the 2009 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
The National Heads-Up Poker Championship, which was taped at the Caesars Palace Poker Room March-6-8, features 64 top poker players competing in a series of heads-up (one-on-one games of No Limit Texas Hold’em) matches to determine the best heads-up poker player in the world. This tournament has a unique, single-elimination, bracket-style format modeled after college basketball’s championship tournament, except that the finals are the best of three.
