The partypoker Premier League 7 continues with Heat 5 from the wonderful city of Montreal. Jeff Gross won Heat 1 followed by Jason Koon taking Heat 2  then we saw Sorel Mizzi taking winning Heat 3 and yesterday we saw Dan Colman crushing Heat 4. With the Premier League 7 we’re featuring 12 players all 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 and 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.

Hand 28

As usual Jesse May is doing a terrific job in the commentary box and joined today by Sorel Mizzi who we caught up with for an interview earlier. Not a whole ton of action so far with Phil Gross our current chip leader and of course Phil Laak is up to his usual tricks of attempting his mind tricks. Here in the meantime are some chip counts after 28 hands:

DAN COLMAN 234,000
DANIEL CATES 223,500
JASON KOON 300,000

PHIL LAAK 223,500
DAN SHAK 355,000
BRIAN RAST 351,000

The Action – Welcome to the (Concrete) Jungle.

You know even before the action started today Dan Jungleman Cates was $30,000 up after he won a prop bet against Antonio Esfandiari. The bet? Could the Jungleman standout side in the cold winter air of Montreal in -17c without his shirt for 20 minutes. We’re glad to say we we’re there to get pics:
