Go Head-to-Head With Annie Duke at UB

Share this
One of the famous women in poker, Annie Duke, kicked off 2010 with her victory at the 2010 National Heads-up Championship . Although she hadn't been a familiar face at the tables much of last year, Duke still was in the news thanks to her appearance on "The Celebrity Apprentice" and her exceptional work with the charity, Ante Up for Africa.

In March, Duke hit the tables in Los Angeles. Showing she still had what it takes to win, she finished in 19th-place at the WPT LA Poker Classic main event. From there, she entered the 2010 National Heads-up Championship, where brimming with confidence from her win in LA, she proceeded to prove she was a force to be reckoned with in the three-day event by walking all over the likes of Andy Bloch, Darvin Moon, Jerry Yang, Paul Wasicka and Dennis Phillips. When it came down to just her good friend, Erik Seidel, it was Annie’s pocket queens that made a straight and busted Seidel’s pocket nines to give her the title and a $500,000 payday.

To celebrate owning the National Heads-Up Championship title, Annie Duke and UB Poker are giving players the opportunity to see if they have what it takes to take down the National Heads-Up champ! On the last Sunday of every month, UB is throwing Annie into the ring to defend her title in a $128K Guaranteed heads-up tourney where she'll go head-to-head with anyone who thinks they are good enough to take her on! Not only will there be a huge prize pool on the line but the player who knocks Annie Duke out of the tourney will also win a seat in the following Sunday's $150k Guaranteed tourney at 2pm ET!

And the best news is you can win your seat to the Annie Duke Heads-Up Challenge for FREE!

UB will give away four $128k Heads-Up seats a month in their special FreeRolls and $1 buy-in heads-up tourneys. Plus, if you make your way into the $128k Heads-Up tourney through either a FreeRoll or any $1 buy-in event and manage to send Annie to the rail, you will receive a special bonus of $1,500 in Tournament Dollars on top of the bounty prize!

The first Annie Duke Heads-Up Challenge will take place this Sunday, April 25th at 1pm ET. Players can choose to buy-in directly for $1,000+50, play the Sit n' Go Heads-Up Satellite for $525+20 or, play in one of the many Daily Satellites starting from just $8+.80. But you would rather get in FREE right? Then you need to play in the FreeRoll this Saturday, April 24th at 1pm ET where the winner will receive a seat in the Annie Duke Heads-Up Challenge that will be held this Sunday! And if you can multitask and multi-table, you can double your chances of winning by playing in the $1+.10 buy-in tourney which runs at the exact same time as the FreeRoll and also awards one seat to the Heads-Up Challenge event.

And for those that just can't clear their calendar this weekend, then plan now to be there next month when these satellites kick off:

•    May 23 - FreeRoll and $1+.10 buy-in both run at 1pm
•    May 29 - FreeRoll and $1+.10 buy-in both run at 1pm  

The winners in each of these events will win a seat in the second Annie Duke Heads-Up Challenge which will be held on May 30th. But you better plan now, because if you are going to play in the $1 events, seats are limited to only 1,024 players! See if you have what it takes to take down the first woman ever to be crowned the NBC National Heads-Up Poker champion!
