Heat 4 of the partypoker Premier League 7  is now on in the city of Montreal. If you missed it Jeff Gross won Heat 1 and then we saw Jason Koon take Heat 2   after that it was Sorel Mizzi taking down heat 3. The Premier League 7 features 12 players playing six eight-handed heats, with each player competing in a total of four league matches.

Players are awarded points based on their finishing position, each point is worth $2,000. And the top four points earners progress to the final table, while the next four places square off in a series of best-of-three one-on-one matches for the last two spots in the six-handed grand finale.

Them Side Bets

A common theme from this event has been the side bets, as if the poker wasn’t enough the players are loving having a little something extra on the side. With questions from ‘how many push ups’ do you think Brian Rast could do in a minute’ to “how much days in jail could Phil Laak do..” it’s never a dull moment on the Premier League 7.  We’ll report more as we hear it.
