partypoker's announcement of the Premier League VII dates arrived this week — the Playground Poker Club in Montreal will host from November 20th-26th, 2013. Tony G was the first player to confirm and is the only player that has played in every event!
The second player to confirm tops poker's all-time money list — Antonio Esfandiari — Esfandiari's confirmation for the event came in on Thursday. Esfandiari ended the last edition of the Premier League in third place.
"Very excited to be playing in the Premier League again," said Esfandiari. "Even more excited that it’s in Montreal at the Playground. Love Canada!"
Esfandiari's presence at partypoker's Premier League VII brings a face known around the world to the event; he has live tournament winnings of over $25.5 million, three World Series of Poker gold bracelets, and two World Poker Tour titles.
First place in the Premier League will take home $350,000! In March’s edition of the Premier League event, it was Dan Shak who took home $450,000 for taking down the title.
