The event starts tomorrow, and we'll likely have anywhere from 20 to 40 of the best limit hold'em players in the world playing heads up matches. I'm really excited about this event and will be posting the bracket and results as they come in.

No John Hennigan? i've always considered him one of the best limit holdem players in the world if not the best. curious why he didnt play in the event.

Erik Sagstrom is just too much of an excellent player. 21 years old and supposed 10mill on starts....hmmm. I think he's got prlly the best chance for this...and if now be sure to see him again and again and again. But Daniel will get the lock for player of the year.Sorry Dan, think u'll get some more competition next year with Erik123 if he plays all tourns.
