The opening round of the10th Anniversary World Heads Up Poker Championship began Friday at noon at London's Victoria Casino.  A maximum of 128 entrants were allowed to play the £2000+£200 buy-in event.

The formula is simple. Win five straight heads up matches and win the first prize. The winner will also earn a seat in the GUKPT Champion of Champions event.

The opening day survivors will return at noon on Saturday for rounds three and four with the quarter and semi finals scheduled for Sunday. The final pair will square off for the title at 5pm on Monday evening.

The quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals will be broadcast live on pokerineuropelive.com.

Last year, Bambos Xanthos defeated Irish Open champion James Mitchell to pocket the £65,000 first prize.
