The partypoker Premier League has rolled out news of the next edition of the partypoker Premier League! The highly anticipated Premier League VII kicks off at the Playground Poker Club from November 20th-26th, 2013, in Montreal and 12 poker superstars will highlight the $125,000 buy-in event. One of those 12 is a favorite of ours — Tony G!
In typical Tony G fashion, he's either in or he's out, and he's definitely in — the first player confirmed for the Premier League — and the only player that has played in the Premier League every season. The G is never short on words and tells it like it is. “People say I am not qualified to play this event," said Tony G. "Actually, I am the most qualified!"
Get ready to tune in and enjoy the show with the improved structure of the Premier League which partypoker attributes the change to player feedback. There are six eight-handed heats of poker in the event and the 12 players will battle it out in four league matches. The Premier League standard is to award $2,000 for each point earned with the top four finishers receiving an automatic 'in' to play at the final table. A series of heads-up matches will be played off between fifth through eighth place to decide who fills the last two seats.
First place will take home $350,000. Dan Shak stacked $450,000 by earning the title in the last edition of the Premier League. Anchor coverage will be provided by the ever-talented Kara Scott and Jesse May will keep you entertained and updated with lead commentary.
