Posted at 10:20 2010-02-11

The PartyPoker.com Premier League IV is back with the M Resort Spa Casino playing host!

The elite $100,000 buy-in event will be held at Las Vegas’ newest casino from February 12th-18th with players such as defending champion JC Tran, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Roland de Wolfe, Luke Schwartz, Phill Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu, Vanessa Rousso and David Benyamine all in the line-up.

Team Party’s newest member in Tony G will also be attending the Premier League IV, but for those Texas Dolly fans, Doyle Brunson has unfortunately pulled out but will be replaced by Phil ‘The Unabomber’ Laak.

“This is the most money I have ever wagered against the toughest field I have ever face,” stated Laak before continuing, “collectively my opponents have over $45 million in tournament winnings. This will be the best ride ever. Full stop!”

Laak’s humorous and entertaining banter was at its best when discussing his rivals, “I hear Tony G has a bike now. I hope he doesn’t send me off on it! As for Full Flush there will be free sandwiches. Negreanu and Hellmuth . . . ranked two and four on the all time money list. Vanessa Rousso is always thinking while Roland De Wolf is full of sharp wit and is amazingly entertaining always.”

This year the M Resort in Las Vegas will be the home of the main event boasting over 92,000 square feet of gaming and an intimate fourteen table poker room. “Premier League Poker has been incredibly successful. This event is uniquely set-up and attracts some of the top players in the world. We’re looking forward to hosting it this year,” spoke Executive Vice President and COO of the M Resort Joseph Magliarditi.

Both the play-off and main event will be filmed for TV and shown across the world. PokerNews is also a major sponsor of the event and will be providing live coverage with their logo appearing on all the tables and via the flop cameras.

For those that were fortunate enough, PartyPoker.com ran qualifier to find a total of 16 players who are all playing in a play-off to see which one of the 16 will be lucky enough to join the 11 professional players in Premier League Poker IV. The lucky online qualifiers will play a short series of play-off sit and goes with the eventual winner winning the $100,000 buy-in to take part in the main event. An amazing promotion by Party Poker is that one of the qualifiers will also be chosen to receive a $100,000 Team Party contract to be a sponsored player.
