Heads Up Grand Slam Draw Revealed

November 13, 2009 |

The draw for the inaugural PKR Heads Up Grand Slam is complete, with poker fans in for a real treat.

Highlights of the draw include online poker pros such as 2008 WSOP Champion Peter Eastgate versus his Premier League rival, EPT London winner Vicky Coren, while Academy Award nominated actress and WSOP bracelet holder Jennifer Tilly will take on the ‘The Mouth from Down Under’ Tony G.

An all British clash is in the works as John Tabatabai tackles the might of the Devilfish, and Luke ‘Full Flush’ Schwartz will have his work cut out against WPT Champ Yevgeniy Timoshenko. But perhaps the most mouth watering combination of all sees Tom ‘Durrrr’ Dwan battle it out with WSOP Heads Up runner-up John Duthie. If Dwan is successful, the dream matchup could be on against bitter rival Luke Schwartz in the semi finals.

Managing Director Eddie Hearn commented “There are some really exciting clashes lined up for the first round of the PKR Heads Up Grand Slam, but it’s also interesting to see what could happen as the tournament develops.”

“In the top half of the draw, if Annette can overcome Ian Frazer and John Tabatabai can defeat the Devilfish, then they could meet in the second round for a rematch of the 2007 WSOPE final. The winner could face WSOP Champ Peter Eastgate in the quarter finals whilst Tony G and Ilari ‘Ziigimund’ Sahamies could face off in the other quarter final. In the bottom half, Phil Laak or James Sudworth could face a tough test in the second round against Ivan Demidov, and Full Flush and Durrrr may well meet in the semis. The connotations are endless but each match will carry plenty of drama.”

The event will take place from the 8th–10th October in London’s 3 Mills Studios.
