PartyPoker European Open V starts tomorrow

Thursday, 5 February 2009

The PartyPoker European Open V will begin tomorrow and run for a week until Friday the 13th – unlucky for all but one, as there is a $200,000 guaranteed first-place prize.

Ones to watch entering the $7,000 buy-in, 72-runner event include Premier League III stars Annette Obrestad, Roland de Wolfe, Vicky Coren and Juha Helppi plus Poker Million finalists Ciaran O’Leary, Eoghan O’Dea and Liam Flood. Others signed up to play include Austin Healey, Ian Frazer, Surinder Sunar, Barny Boatman, James Akenhead, Padraig Parkinson, Julian Thew, Donnacha O’Dea, May Maceiras, Marc Goodwin, Thomas Bihl, Robin Keston, Neil Channing, Roberto Romanello and UK Open champion Michael Keiner.

The tournament features 12 6-handed seats and two turbo heats for runners-up. The two semi-finals are 7-handed and the final will be 6-max. The total prize pool is a cool $504,000 with the winner getting nearly half of that.
