CHARLOTTE, N.C. — PokerTek, a manufacturer of automated electronic poker tables, is rolling out a two-player PokerPro Heads-Up table at a trade show in Las Vegas.

The table is the first designed for automated heads-up play, according to Poker Tek.

“The idea is simple,” said James Crawford, PokerTek’s president. “Poker players love to play heads-up poker and casino operators are constantly looking for new ways to meet their customers’ needs. In the past, it’s been hard to find a casino that would deal a heads-up game for regular players. Now, PokerPro Heads-Up offers casinos a profitable way to spread heads-up poker.”

The PokerPro Heads-Up also requires only 20 percent of the floor space needed for a traditional table.
