November 12, 2008

Six of the past eight World Champions have all hailed from the USA but this year it wouldn’t be a seventh as heads-up play is to be contested by a 22-year old Dane in Peter Eastgate and a 27-year old Russian in Ivan Demidov. With play due to start at 10pm local time there would be some delay as Erick Lindgren was presented with his 2008 WSOP Player of the Year Award; a custom Harley-Davidson Motorcycle. Starting heads-up play with only 57,725,000 chips in comparison to Eastgate’s 79,500,000, Demidov would take down the firs
