The PartyPoker.com Premier League IV hits Channel 4 starting Monday 4th October 2010. Check out this hot promo video:
The fourth edition of Premier League Poker took place at the M Resort Casino Spa in Las Vegas with a star-studded field competing for the $1.5 million prizepool.
Defending champion JC Tran was joined by Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Vanessa Rousso, Roland de Wolfe, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Phil Laak, David Benyamine, Luke Schwartz, and Tony G.
Ian Frazer won the battle between the Team Party pros to take the 11th seat, while Italian online qualifier Giovanni Safina claimed the final spot in the $100,000 buy-in tournament. Debutant Daniel Negreanu said that “every show should be like this one”, while Premier League stalwart Tony G called it the “the greatest show in poker”.
The explosive mix of players provided classic moments both on and off the table, with Luke “Full Flush” Schwartz’s bluff against Yevgeniy Timoshenko already causing a stir when posted on the internet.
Every fortnight, Matchroom Sport and PartyPoker will be releasing exclusive footage from the ground-breaking event leading up to it hitting the airwaves.
”The Partypoker.com Premier League IV is quite simply the greatest poker show ever made,” said Matchroom Sport managing director Eddie Hearn. “The World’s best players and biggest entertainers playing deep stack poker and battling it out for $1.5 million. The play was on another level to anything I ever seen before and the intensity of the competition and growing rivalries make the PLP compelling viewing. The world is in for a real treat in 2010.”
