The 2011 NBC Heads-Up Championship is down to the final 8 and we've got the updated bracket for you right here.
The remaining players are long on talent with WPT winner Olivier Busquet against reigning world champion Jon Duhamel, 2003 world champion Chris Moneymaker against high-stakes shark David Oppenheim, young online gun Andrew Robl will take on old-schooler David Benyamine and Vanessa Selbst, arguably one of the best female players in the game is up against living legend Erik Seidel.
Our official pick is the venerable Erik Seidel. He's hot lately and no one left has anything close to his level of live major event experience. Bet the farm on Seidel to win.
These eight are set to play today and by the end of the night we'll have a champion. Hit our poker news section tomorrow for the wrap-up story. It'll tell you everything you need to know.
