Ivan Demidov is not able to attend the NBC Heads-Up event at Caesars’ Palace this weekend due to visa issues. Hevad Khan will take his place, which was announced by Mori Eskandani on Gary Wise’s podcast on Rounders Radio.
I can’t believe we didn’t think of him as a person missing from the line-up. Bring it on, Hevad. Is it wrong for me to say I’m kinda hoping for the non-stoic version of RaiNKhan?
On second read … visa issue, huh? Standard Russian poker player stuff … like he’s been here too long … or is there more to it?
No idea, Mori just mentioned visa issues, I think he said he got the wrong type of visa, but I could be wrong there. Khan took his place because it was the replacement of a Pokerstars player for a Pokerstars player. When Gary asked why David Chiu (WPT Championship winner) didn’t get an invite, he mentioned he was first alternate in case someone else can’t make it.
I think the only way you get the old Hevad is if he wins the thing.
I was thinking 4 or 5 of those 5-hour energy shots in whatever decaffeinated beverage he’s drinking oughta do the trick.
