Cates and Schwartz Join Premier League

Cates and Schwartz Join Premier League

Tuesday, 19 February 2013

Two more names have joined the impressive roster of stars waiting to play this year’s Party Poker Premier League.

In the last 24 hours Daniel “Jungleman” Cates and Luke “FullFlush” Schwartz have been unveiled as the latest two stars to join the line-up.

Cates will certainly be looking forward to his chance at redemption after finishing second to Scott Seiver in last year’s tournament.

However, he’ll have stiff competition not only from Seiver, but from Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Laak and Tony G when the action kicks off on March 17th.

While Cates will be looking to go one place better, Schwartz will want to prevent the embarrassment of being the first player to hit the rail.

Indeed, the fiery Brit was the first to be eliminated last year, but this time around he is confident of his chances, “I cannot wait for the Premier League VI. From what I see, there isn’t a single shark in the line-up yet, so they’ll all be getting completely steamrolled. I’m a one-man pigeon police.”
