    Monday, January 18th, 2010 by t2admin

Party Poker recently announced that Phil Hellmuth will be participating in the upcoming Premier League IV. This edition of the Premier League will take place in Las Vegas in February with the Main Event taking place on the 12th through the 18th.

Hellmuth will be one of many poker pros that will be participating in the Premier League IV. Hellmuth commented on his participation in the upcoming event by stating: “I am looking forward to playing in the Premier League and starting the new decade off on the right note! After being point’s leader in the Premier League in 2006, 2007 and 2008 I was regulated, and it is time to step up and claim a title!”
This year Party Poker decided to make a change to the event. the online poker room ran qualifiers to find sixteen players who would fly to Vegas to play in the Premier League Poker play-off. The winner of the event would join the eleven poker pros in the Premier League Poker IV. The winner of the play-off will earn a $100,000 buy-in to take part in the Main Event.
One of the sixteen qualifiers will earn the opportunity of a lifetime as Party Poker is giving one player a $100,000 Team Party contract to become a sponsored player. The main qualifiers are already finished but players can still qualify via country specific qualifiers.

The Premier League event last year was won by poker pro J.C. Tran. The poker pro won the $300,000 first place prize when he outlasted the other poker pros at the final table. The other pros who made the final table were Tom Dwan, Juha Helppi, Roland de Wolfe, Peter Eastgate and Tony G.

The play-off and Main Event of this year’s event will be filmed for television and will be able to be viewed by poker fans that cannot make it to Vegas to watch the competition.
