While many looked at the initial draw for the WPT Heads Up Championship Presented by Poker King and has visions of what maybe, possibly, could be a finals-flashback to days of the poker boom … well, you see, what happened was … in a pandemic-year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened.
From an invitational starting field of 32, poker legends and superstars Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius emerge to meet today in the Championship best-of-five match.
100,000 stacks to begin each game, 11 hands per level, the players sitting battleship-style across a table from one another in Cabo San Lucas, on mobile devices competing on the Poker King app.
Follow here for live updates (with no spoilers, highlighting major action) and watch the action on a one-hour delay beginning at Noon PST at Twitch.TV/WorldPokerTour.
