Friday, 8 March 2013

The stacked field at this month's PartyPoker Premier League has got even tougher with the news that Sam Trickett is joining the line up.

Britain's most successful tournament player will be joining the likes of Daniel Negreanu, Antonio Esfandiari and Phil Hellmuth at Aspers in East London in the $125,000 buy-in event.

“It’s an incredibly challenging format that is completely unique and different to all other tournaments but I’m going to have a blast,” said the WSOP Big One for One Drop runner up.

The Premier League runs from17th to 23rd March 2013 and will feature 16 players split up into two groups of eight. Each player will compete in four league matches with the top three finishers from each group going through to the final table. 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. Qualifiers are up and running at PartyPoker.
