The quarterfinals of the Littlewoods Poker World Heads-Up Poker Championship are happening now, and you can watch it live on PokerinEuropeLive.com .There were 16 players remaining for round 3 of the Littlewoods Poker World Heads-Up Poker Championship at London’s Grosvenor Victoria Casino yesterday but that field would be halved by end of play.Firstly, the cameras were pointed at Paul Zimbler versus Richard Gryko , but after an hour they were moved to the side to allow others some screen-time. Over time Gryko built up a lead, and finally the two got it all in with K-9 versus pocket sixes. Gryko’s K-9 beat Zimbler’s sixes and he moved through to the quarter-final. He said, “I knew it would come down to a race in the end.”Bambos Xanthos then took on Sorel Mizzi in what turned out to be the longest match of the day. Xanthos moved out in front early on and created a 3 to 1 chip lead, but then Mizzi flipped things and decreased Xanthos’ stack to 5,000, a quarter of what they started with, with pocket aces versus Xanthos’ flopped pair and flush draw.Xanthos came back once more and eventually his pocket sixes crippled Mizzi’s A-Q. A few hands later, and almost four hours in to their match, Mizzi’s remaining 300 in chips made the trip across the table when his K-8 was slaughtered by Xanthos’ A-K.After his win, Xanthos said, “I have been a poker cash game player for the past 30 years and I have a lot of patience.”Thor Drexel beat Robert Price in the next match. The ultimate hand came when on a flop of Q Q 3 , Price shoved all in with 9 3 and was called by Drexel holding J 7 . Drexel hit runner runner to make a diamond flush and took the match down.Victor V. Ilyukhin also made it through to the quarter-finals, as did Laurence Houghton when he beat Bryan Pellegrino. Houghton said after that he had spent some money on watching Pellegrino’s video tips and that it was well worth it.Tony Cascarino is another player making his way to the quarter-finals today. He faced Steven Wilmot and took it down when his Q-J made a straight on the 10-9-8 flop in the final hand. Cascarino said, “I got lucky and Steve is a good player. I was fortunate to hit the nuts, but my heads-up game has improved of late.”The final match saw two young but powerful poker players battle it out. Albert Iversen had twice Dario Minieri’s stack at one point but in the end it was the Italian who took the final spot in the quarter-final.The quarter final matches taking place at 1 p.m. (local time) today are:Victor V.
