The king of the TV shootouts, UK player Ian Frazer, has secured the final spot in the Party Poker Premier League. He puts himself in the 12 player $100,000 buy-in Premier League IV alongside JC Tran, Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Vanessa Rousso, Roland de Wolfe, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Phil Laak, David Benyamine, Luke Schwartz and fellow Team Party member Tony G. Also in the field is 44-year-old Italian lawyer Giovanni Safina, from Palermo, who takes his seat in the elite event after qualifying online at http://www.partypoker.it/ for just 100 euros!
“I’ve really got a feeling I can win this and I am so delighted that I have made it into the Main Event” he commented.
The first heat of the PartyPoker.com Premier League IV Main Event takes place tomorrow with Frazer joining JC Tran, Daniel Negreanu, Luke Schwartz, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Roland de Wolfe, Phil Laak and Vanessa Rousso on the felt for heat one. Last year’s winner Tran goes in as favourite to take down the tournament as a whole. TV specialist Frazier might not be as well known as some of his opponents but this is his format and well worth a punt.
