Two more big names have been added to the line up at next month's PartyPoker Premier League in London.
First up is poker's $18m man Antonio Esfandiari. The Magician followed up his victory in the $1m Big One for One Drop by winning a WSOPE bracelet and added even more cash to his bulging bankroll with a final table appearance at WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic.Joining Esfandiari at Aspers will be Phil Hellmuth. The Brat will be hoping to continue his excellent recent form which saw him bag seven-figure scores in the Big One for One Drop and the WSOPE Main Event (which he won). His heads up play is none to shabby at the moment either, finishing runner up to Mike Matusow in the recent NBC Heads Up Championship.Esfandiari and Hellmuth join Daniel Negreanu and defending champion Scott Seiver who have also confirmed their participation.The $125,000 buy-in PartyPoker.com Premier League takes place at Aspers Westfield Casino, London from 17th to 23rd March 2013 and will feature 16 players split up into two groups of eight.

The fourth and fifth seeds will square off in a series of heads-up matches (best of three) for spots in the eight-handed finale. The East London venue will also play host to the WPT National London from 15th to 19th March 2013. The £1,500 buy-in event will be a re-entry tournament with two opening day flights.
