Now we know he’ll be in thick of the action for PartyPoker.com Premier League III we asked Phil ‘Poker Brat’ Hellmuth about his chances and his opinion of the players he’s got to beat if he’s going to win.

Peter Eastgate (6/1)

“Only a few weeks back, Peter broke my record as youngest world champion of poker in history at the tender age of 22. Talk about being on form. This kid won over $9 million when he took the WSOP Main Event this month. I’m looking forward to watching the way this young gun plays his hands in the Premier League.”

JC Tran (13/2)

“JC is one of the best Texas Hold’em tournament players in the world today and he is one of the five “young guns” in the Premier League. He has both a WSOP title and a WPT title.”

Nenad Medic (7/1)

“Nenad is right on form right having just finished fourth in a WPT event in Las Vegas in late October. Nenad has a WSOP win this year, as well as a big WPT win a few years back. Certainly one to watch.”

Annette Obrestad (15/2)

“Annette could be one of the greatest in the poker world. She is only 20 but already she’s won the main event at the WSOPE (at age 18) and millions of dollars playing online poker.”

Tom Dwan (8/1)

“Tom, or ‘Durrr’, has amazing talent. He has reportedly won many millions of dollars playing online poker and is barely 22. I have played with him many times in the real world and he plays super fast, and still manages to win.”

Phil Hellmuth (9/1)

“I never leave the house to play in anything less than a prestigious tournament and with any goal less than winning, period. I’m coming to London to win. I must say I am so impressed by the line-up of players that I’ll be battling along the way.”

Roland De Wolfe (9/1)

“Roland moved from reporter to contender in a very short space of time. He has tons of talent and even more personality.”

Devilfish (9/1)

“Devilfish is a world class, absolutely fearless poker player who has two WSOP bracelets, a WPT title and dozens of titles from all over the world. He won tournaments 10 years ago and still he wins today. Enough said.”

Tony G (10/1)

“Tony G was the Premier League II points leader. Tony is fearless, feisty and makes for great television viewing.”

Andy Black (15/1)

“Andy is long on talent, but short on closing the deal. However, he did manage it in Premier League II after he overplayed K-Q in a massive pot and outdrew his opponent’s Q-Q.”

Juha Helppi (15/1)

“Juha is a mathematical player with tons of success in the poker world. Juha played me heads up for my 10th WSOP bracelet in 2006, a match that I won. He got a measure of revenge when he busted me out in third at the first Premier League finale in 2007.”

Vicky Coren (20/1)

“Vicky is a well mannered, sophisticated and classy competitor who also is a presenter over here in the UK.”
