Winner - Ted Forrest

Ferguson runner-up 2 years in a row. I'd rather lose to Forrest than Hellmuth, though.

Although I am proud of my Jesus to get the 2nd again I wanted him to win it this time very badly. This back to back 2nd place finishes for him though prooves my point perfectly though about heads up play. It's all about patience, and if you watch Ferguson play poker he is one of the most patient players ever. He just waits out his oponents and causes them to play into his style of slow play. Then he charges at them in the big pots. Congrats to Jesus and next year he should hopefully pull it all off big.

There were many talented players in the tournament but I'm not sure that they are all skilled headsup players. It's definitely a new game when it's HU. I remember last year was pretty good, when is this one going to be aired?

I enjoyed watching this in the past, but never remembered that it was on. I probably won't this year either. If I catch it on, I'll watch. It's always interesting to see others play heads-up to improve your own game.

Maybe there should be some type of spoiler alert here. I would think some people would rather wait until it airs to find the result of these type of events. Or maybe its just me...

I was thinking the same thing. I wasn't too mad since I'm probably not going to watch much of it.

Nice summary of the big matchups. I would be interested to she who Phil H. played. Any game heads up with the poker brat is good TV.

I really hope Tong G. lost. While Phil H. is bad, atleast he can be at point likeable. Tong G. has to be the slimest player out there.
