NHUPC Round of 16

by , Mar 6, 2010 | 6:13 pm

They’re in the money at the National Heads-Up Championship. Everyone’s brackets have turned to shit — I’ll update that situation as soon as I put this post up here — and Jerry Yang’s crew is apparently rolling old-school Hevad Khan, getting all up in Jennifer Harman’s grill. (Jennifer of all people!)

Everyone left guaranteed at least $25k in pursuit of the $500k first prize.

The payout breakdown:

Champion $500,000
Runner-Up $250,000
3rd & 4th Place $125,000
5th – 8th Place $75,000
9th – 16th Place $25,000

Click here for how they got to this point. WSOP Main Event champs representing. Where’s Varkonyi!

Coming up:

Chris Moneymaker vs. Erik Seidel
Peter Eastgate vs. Jamie Gold

Scotty Nguyen vs. Gabe Kaplan
Eli Elezra vs. Dennis Phillips

Jerry Yang vs. Barry Greenstein
Doyle Brunson vs. Annette Obrestad

Phil Laak vs. Jason Mercier
Annie Duke vs. Paul Wasicka

By my count, that’s six Main Event champs, one Main Event-Europe champs, and one guy who thinks he was main event champ.

    … or has capitalized a 3rd place finish in the WSOP Main Event the best.

    In the live updates yesterday, there was talk of Yang slowrolling Matusow, and someone in his area flipping off Matusow.

    Maybe Yang is tired of getting ripped.
