Luke Schwartz Joins PartyPoker Premier League, Paul Foltyn Wins $1k Monday + more
Luke Schwartz Confirms for PartyPoker Premier League
One of the most watchable poker shows on TV just got a load more watchable. The star studded PartPoker Premier League IV in Las Vegas has just added Luke ‘Fullflush’ Schwartz to its line up. The controversial trash talking UK player will be joining the likes of Phil Hellmuth in the league format shootout show. Schwartz commented:
“I can’t wait to get to Vegas and crush the field in the PartyPoker.com Premier League. For sure there are some big names playing but I have to be a huge favourite. They need to know that I’m coming with my sharky hat on and it’s gonna be a whole week of soul owning from Full Flush.”
A PartyPoker.com spokesman said: “We did a lot of soul searching rather than soul owning before deciding to invite Luke into the Premier League. The fact is that he is a great player and he will certainly ignite the line-up and we haven’t even completed it yet! It will be particularly interesting to see how he comes off in a verbal sparring battle against the Poker Brat himself, Phil Hellmuth."
