Monday, 17 November 2008

The line-up for PartyPoker.com Premier League III is becoming more and more formidable by the week. The latest to be added to the all-star line-up and strongest field in the Premier League's history are Peter Eastgate and Tom 'durrrr' Dwan.

This pair are the hottest young guns on the circuit and they join Tony G, Dave 'Devilfish' Ulliott, Annette Obrestad, Roland de Wolfe, Andy Black, Juha Helppi, JC Tran, Nenad Medic and Victoria Coren in the line-up. There is now just one more name to confirm.

Peter Eastgate, made history just last week, winning the 2008 WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas scooping $9,152,416 to become the youngest ever Main Event champion and he is making his first post-WSOP appearance at PartyPoker.com Premier League III.

Eastgate said: "This is my first event since the WSOP Main Event final table so I am delighted to be part of a world class line-up. I am the man in form and want to show people why I am the World Champion."

22-year-old Tom 'Durrrr' Dwan is undoubtedly one of poker's hottest talents and is one of the circuit's most respected players with estimated online winnings in 2008 believed to exceed $6 million. On 26th October 2008, during a session of $500/1000 No-Limit Hold'em, Dwan played the biggest pot to date in online poker, $723,938, losing with KK versus Urindanger's AA. Originally from Edison in New Jersey, Dwan is quite simply a high stakes legend and one of poker's most feared players
both online and offline.

Dwan said: "I'm really excited about coming to play the Premier League and am honoured to be invited. The line-up is simply world class and I am coming to London determined to win."
