Bummer - No NBC National Heads Up in 2012

The poker show that got the best ratings and visibility in the non-poker market was just canceled for 2012. NBC indicated it may consider re-instating the championship in 2013 but with the two main sponsors, PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, out of consideration, the show wasn't feasible.

I always thought it was a good set with big poker stars, even if the structure wasn't the greatest it seemed to produce really good players who won (Phil Hellmuth, Chris Ferguson, Erik Seidel, and Huck Seed)

It's gunna really suck to see a lot of the tv programming cancelled now that the online sponsorship money isn't out there. We're gunna be back down to just the WSOP and WPT.
