The roster for the Party Poker Premier League IV is mostly set with PartyGaming's announcement on January 28th, 2010 that poker legend Doyle Brunson, is the latest addition to the roster of eleven poker pros and one online qualifier who will participate in this special poker event.
"Dolly" joins a top flight group that will gather on Las Vegas on February 12th, 2010-February 18th, 2010 for this one-of-a kind $100,000 buy-in event. Doyle Brunson, a 10-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner, leads this formidable line-up, which also includes some of the best poker players like Daniel Negreanu, David Benyamine, Phil Hellmuth, Vanessa Rousso, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, JC Tran, Luke Schwartz, Roland d Wolfe and the newest member of Team Party, Tony G.
Brunson said that he is very proud and happy to be a part of such an impressive group. Brunson said that he is also excited about testing his skills against some of the best poker players in the world. Aside from announcing the final participant in Brunson, PartyGaming also announced that PokerNews.com will be the main sponsor for the main event.
PokerNews Editor-in-Chief Matthew Parvis said that they are proud to be a sponsor for the PartyPoker.com Premier League IV. Parvis said that not only the tournament format is exciting but the roster of players is second to none. Parvis added that there is no other poker event where you can see the best poker players battle it out on the poker felt.
There are still two remaining slots for this event. One spot will go to an online qualifier while the other will go to the champion of a mini-Premier League play-off between members of Team Party. Participating in the event will be Poker Hall of Fame inductee Mike Sexton, Ian Frazer of UK, Felipe "Mojave" Ramos of Brazil, Remy Biechel of France and Bodo Sbrzesny of Germany.
A special invitation into the Team Party shootout has been granted to Dragan Galic, a German poker pro with Croatian connections who was recently nominated for European Player of the Year and is regarded as one of the best poker players in the European circuit.
