With the tournament just over two weeks away the roster for the Party Poker Premier League VI is starting to take shape, with well over half of the 16 total participants now confirmed –11 players have reserved their spots at the Party Poker Premier League VI tables. The invite-only $125,000 buy-in event will begin on March 17th, 2013 during the European Poker Tour (EPT) London tournament series, and will likely be one of the most talked about events of the year.
The Premier League uses a unique format where players earn points in preliminary rounds before moving on to a more standard final table: 16 players will be split into two groups of eight with each player participating in four league matches with the top three from each group automatically qualifying for the final table. The final spots will be determined by heads-up matches between fourth and fifth place finishers.
So far the confirmed players run the gamut from well-known poker pros to young guns, and even a poker playing celebrity added to the mix. Here is a look at the roster as it currently stands:
- Scott Seiver
The returning champion, Seiver is among the top young talents in the game.
- Daniel Negreanu
Perhaps the most famous poker player in the world, Negreanu is returning to the Party Poker Premier League for the first time in a number of years.
- Tony G
The Party Poker spokesman is a fixture at the Premier league.
- Phil Hellmuth
Another player returning to the Party Poker Premier League after a hiatus, Hellmuth has been among the top performers in tournament poker over the past couple years.
- Phil Laak
One of the more entertaining players, Laak will join his good friend Antonio Esfandiari, and his girlfriend, actress Jennifer Tilly at the Premier League tables.
- Antonio Esfandiari
Antonio’s stock is soaring after his One Drop win, which he followed-up with a WSOP bracelet in Cannes.
- Daniel Cates
Considered one of the top online players, Cates has had little success in live events up to this point in his short poker career.
- Luke Schwartz
A brash-talking Brit, Schwatz is a regular at Party Poker events, and is a favorite of Tony G.
- Marvin Rettenamier
Rettenamier joined Party Poker in May of 2012 and since that time he has been one of the most successful tournament players in the game.
- Jennifer Tilly
Tilly will likely be considered the soft-spot at the Premier League, but she has proven over the years to be willing to mix-it-up with the boys.
- Dan Shak
The high-stakes poker player will be making his Premier League debut, and will be wearing his IveyPoker.com patch, which seems to have brought him recent success considering his Super-High-Roller scores at both the PCA and Aussie Millions.
