NBC Finals
The folks on another "poker news" website posted an article debating who had the tougher road to the NBC National Heads-Up Final. For those of you that don't know or don't care, Erik Seidel faced Chris Moneymaker in the finals. I figured I would give my opinions on who had the tougher route to the finals. These were Moneymaker's opponents: Round 1 - John Racener Round 2 - Daniel Cates Round 3 - Doyle Brunson Quarters - David Oppenheim Semis -  Jonathan Duhamel   These were Seidel's opponents: Round 1 - Allen Cunningham Round 2 - Jen Harman Round 3 - Phil Gordon Quarters - Vanessa Selbst Semis - Andrew Robl Let's look at Seidel's opponents first.

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.

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

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.
