This years World Heads Up Scheduled for 20th-25th Oct will go ahead but... unfortunately, looks unlikely to be televised. Despite our best efforts , we have guaranteed broadcasts in Spain, Germany and the UK on SKY Sports but still cannot get a sponsor for the event. All this despite having contacted over 40 potential sponsors, cut production costs to a minimum, signed a new production unit and guaranteed distribution...we can do no more. A sad state of affairs really considering how popular the event is, but It looks like tighter budgets in the marketing depts of the poker sites are starting to take their toll and This years World Heads Up is the first casualty. Sad

'Technically' won? Care to expand on that?

As you well no the money wasn't split, it was adjusted so the diff between first and second wasn't so big and we played for the rest. Not sure why u feel the need to publicise that (wrongly) on a forum.

Well done on spelling my first name right, about the only correct thing in that post

Now , Now Children....Jeff won fair and square and as you know Dan is a friend of mine.
The money was adjusted but.. Jeff was the "best player on the day" that`s all there is to it.

Soz, my post was just a joke. I obviously know you won, as you beat my sponsored pro DC in the final. Pretty sure James Atkin wasn't meaning to be insulting either.

Pete, it's a real shame it's not going to be televised or sponsorsed Sad

Lol, when I left Plymouth after the Gukpt last year I was grabbed by the night clerk at the hotel as John had done a runner owing the hotel just over a grand, he reserved with a card no longer in use and said he would pay in cash then run up room service. The night manager got me as he had seen us chatting.
