So far i cant remember seeing such a game, to honor a poker player's birthday. There are a few satellites in order to get a ticket for the main game. Much cheaper than buying in directly for 1100 euro. You can also buy in directly from your party poker account... Wondering how many participants this one will have.

Fans of Tony G will watch his play a little of course. This player is not always at the poker tables and deserves to be watched sometimes when he playing. Maybe this game will have around 300 players if the satellites are strong with many entries. You guys should play if the satellites are not over.
Posted by doubletop777: It's nice to see them doing this and, if anyone deserves it, Tony G really should be honoured. He has been a force of nature over the years and i have always really enjoyed watching him
At this point in life he is just a glorified $hit-talker for me tbh.
Okay, I give them some props 'cause it was a PLO tournament after all and I like that kind of poker to be honest but one can only wonder then why would party make a big deal from somebody's birthday who stopped being a professional poker pro some time ago. Name recognition, probably...

TO CELEBRATE TONY G'S ANNIVERSARY the party gave a 200k dollar gift tournament, rather than recognition for cervisos rendered to the poker community. This is a great gift for me to see and many years to come for this very emblematic figure in the games and cash game tables always watch this crazy

Indeed, i always wondered how come he did get away with all his talk and his actions. You can say that the rules of the game, save someone like that from this behavior. Well at least so far. Cause if he continues like that, you never know what is going to happen in the future
