We’re back with Part 2 of Mike Sextons thoughts on the Premier League V and with literally days before the event starts things are really starting to heat up we can tell you. Yesterday Mike went over his thoughts on TonyG, Andy Frankenberger, Erik Seidel and Luke Schwartz; today let’s hear what he’s got to say on a few more poker legends:

Phil Laak – The “Unibomber” is one of the most likeable guys in poker and is famous for making the hooded sweatshirt so popular.  He also plays a pretty good game of poker, but against this line-up, pretty good won’t cut it.  I’ll tell you this – Phil Laak is as much fun to play poker with as anybody in the world.  He always entertains everybody at the table and is always great for TV poker.

Eugene Katcholov was born in the Ukraine but grew up in New York. He’s very smart and very quiet, but deadly (to others) on the poker table. He has a WSOP bracelet, a WPT title, & a PCA High Rollers title to his credit. In 7 years playing tournament poker, he’s accumulated over $6M in winnings! His feel for the game is uncanny

Tom ‘Durrrr’ Dwan –  He’s certainly one of the top young guns in the world.  His performance in the ultra stake cash games have impressed everyone.  I’ve played in some BIG games with Durrrr and I can tell you, he is “wowing” to watch.  His chips are always moving and most of the time, he ends up with the biggest stack at the table.  I can tell you this – you can’t count on one hand the number of players in the world that are more fun to watch play poker than Durrrr.  If you like action, keep your eyes on him.

That’s part two over, come back for more in part three for Sextons thoughts on Sam Trickett, Daniel’ Jungleman’ Cates and Patrik Antonius. What’s your thoughts so far on the line up let us know below…
