April 23, 2010 21:44 ET Celebrates Annie Duke's National Heads Up Poker Championship Win With $128K Guaranteed Heads Up Challenge's New Monthly $1000+50 Buy-In Heads Up Match Will Be Hosted by Team UB's Annie Duke, and Gives Online Poker Players a Shot at Dethroning the 2010 National Heads Up Poker Champion

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - April 23, 2010) -'s monthly Annie Duke Heads Up Challenge returns this Sunday, April 25th at 13:00 ET, to be hosted by Annie Duke, the recently crowned 2010 National Heads Up Poker Champion. To coincide with the six-week telecast of the 2010 National Heads Up Poker Championship ("NHUPC") on NBC during April and May, UB is giving away 4 seats to each of the $1000+50 buy-in $128K GTD Heads Up Matches on April 25th and May 30th.

"It was an amazing experience to win the live Heads Up event against some of the best names of the game, including good friends Andy Bloch and Erik Seidel," said UB's Card Room Consultant Annie Duke. "I'm equally excited to host the monthly Heads Up event online at UB, and the higher buy-in and top prize money is guaranteed to attract a quality field of online players too. I can't wait to get my heads up on UB." 

To celebrate Duke's history-making NHUPC win, UB players can vie for one of four $128k Heads-Up seats in April and May through freerolls and $1 buy-in heads-up tourneys. Plus, any player who knocks Duke out of the April or May $128k Heads-Up tourney and who made their way into it through one of these special events, will receive an extra $1,500 in Tournament Dollars on top of the usual bounty prize, a $500+30 seat at the following Sunday's $150K Guaranteed tournament at the leading online poker site.

Miss out on one of these special event seats, and there's still two ways to take a swing at Duke; players can pony up the $1000+50 to buy-in directly, participate in one of the many daily satellites with a buy-in of $100+9 starting at 16:10 ET, or try their luck in one of the cheaper qualifiers from as little as $8+.80, which kick off at 10:30 ET every day.

Online poker players looking for a piece of the Annie Duke Heads Up action should check the "Events" Tab in the tournament lobby, with qualifiers listed in the "Satellites" Tab.
