LAS VEGAS - A weekend poker tournament stretched into early Monday before poker champion Phil Hellmuth defeated rival Chris Ferguson to win the inaugural National Heads-Up Poker Championship, tournament officials said.

It was 3:23 a.m. when Hellmuth won the $500,000 first prize in the $1.5 million event at the Golden Nugget hotel-casino in downtown Las Vegas.

The made-for-TV tournament was taped for telecast by NBC in May.
