Heads-Up Coming Up!

The arena
Mob rules.

We're mere moments from the start of the heads-up match for the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event and the Penn & Teller Theatre here at the Rio is buzzing.

Thousands have come to witness 21-year-old online pro Joe Cada take on 46-year-old Maryland logger Darvin Moon with $8.5 million dollars on the line and this place is going to get loud.

Cada holds 135,950,000 chips to Moon's 58,850,000 but there's still some poker to be played.

Both players rode a wave of tremendous luck to get here, so it's anybody's ball game.

Moon and Cada have taken their seats and will be introduced to the crowd in a few minutes, but if you want to know what's going through their minds right now, get it from the horses' mouths here and here .

PL.com will let you know when they make the call to shuffle up and deal and be on the scene providing live updates throughout.

Get ready folks - the battle for the 2009 WSOP Main Event title is next!
