Erik Seidel and Full Tilt Pros Accused of Collusion

Moneymaker Seidel 206x300
Erik Seidel has had an epic 2011. Since the beginning of the year, he has taken down two major high-roller events and the NBC National Heads-Up Championship to take over the all-time money list lead. However, there are now allegations arising that are beginning to cast doubt as to whether these wins were indeed legitimate. It all started with a post on the TwoPlusTwo forums a couple of weeks ago when poster "CrownWatchdog186" posted that the fix was in for both the $100,000 Challenge match and the $250,000 buy-in Super High Roller event.

Erik Seidel Wins Me $100 - And He Also Won the NBC National Heads-Up Title

Moneymaker Seidel
The 2011 NBC National Heads-Up Championship has now concluded and I figured I would take a few moments to comment on the weekend. First, I realize that I got my initial overall pick wrong. Ivey disappointed me with an early first round exit, but my back-up pick of Erik Seidel came through. So apparently this wasn't the year Mizrachi had a deep run in the bracket.

Phil Ivey Sucks - Erik Seidel to Win NBC National Heads-Up Title

Seidel National Heads Up 199x300
Things were going pretty well for me until the last bracket last night. The first three brackets saw 5 out of 6 of my picks for the elite 8 advance. Then disaster struck during the spades bracket. Phil Ivey fell to Dan Cates.

My NBC National Heads-Up Championship Predictions

4 March 2011 , By: compncards
National Heads Up 367x300
The NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship kicks off today at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Normally, I don't go too deep in covering this type of event other than giving whom I think will win. This year is different since I actually have some money riding on this thing. I'm currently part of the little bracket contest that @kevmath is holding for the event.
