Orel Hershiser to Shuffle Up & Deal at the 2010 National Heads-Up Poker Championship

 For fans of the Dodgers that also love to play a little poker from time to time, I wanted to mention that it was just announced that Orel “Bulldog” Hershiser is back (along with 63 other celebrities, poker pros and qualifiers) in the 2010 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, taking place March 4 through March 7 at Caesar’s Place in Las Vegas.  Before you count him out, know that Hershiser made it all the way to the quarterfinals in 2008.

Hershiser goes into the  tournament on a bit of a roll, finishing second in a celebrity charity poker tournament to kick off the new North American Poker Tour.  The tournament benefited Three Squares, a Las Vegas charity that provides food to more than 270 organizations around the great Southern Nevada area.  Model Joanna Krupa also participated, so I included a photo of her as well (you’re welcome).
