Party Poker: Two live events you shouldn't miss out on!

Two of Party Poker's heaviest events are just around the corner. First up is PartyPoker Premier League V, a televised tournament in which 14 poker pros buy-in for $125,000 each and $200,000 is added for the final table. The tournament will be running April 4-10 and the field includes the following players: Tony G, Erik Seidel, Patrik Antonius, Like Schwartz, Sam Trickett, Ian Frazer, Vanessa Selbst, Andy Frankenberger, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Tom Dwan, Phil Laak, Daniel "Jungleman" Cates, Eugene Katchhalov and Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier.

"ElkY" signed up for the tournament as late as yesterday and he seems to be excited about his first Party Poker Premier League.

"This will be the first time I have taken part in the Premier League and I'm super excited to compete with all those great players in such a unique and interesting format," Grospellier told the PartyPoker Blog on Wednesday.

Party Poker Big Game VI
As soon as Party Poker Premier League V comes to an end, the 2-day-long cash game event Party Poker Big Game (also televised) kicks off in Vienna. The tournament will run around the clock for 48 hours alongside the WPT Vienna Main Event. Confirmed players for this event so far are only Andrew Robl and Tony G. But hopefully many of the Premier League participants will stick around and play in the Big Game as well.

At the Party Poker Big Game last year we got to witness Tony G taking home the biggest pot of his career. Another highlight was an all-in between Tony G and Phil Hellmuth. Check out the videos below!

I believe this is nice to watch but just in the show format. How can a 14 player field tourney lasts for 6 days? Even if the blinds don’t go up much often and they start with lots of chips, pros like this would easily go all-in in several situations. I don’t know if anyone will create a poll around here about these tourneys (suggestion given) but, about PartyPoker Premier League V, I will leave my bet: Patrik Antonius!

just interested do those pro's really put up their own money at stake or is that money from sponsors- and the big names are here to generate enough publicity. anyway i do not see these sort of tournament as interesting as they were a few years ago- probably ist's just become too boring to see same faces, same combinations etc.
