Ian Frazer Takes Down Heat 5
UK TV tournament specialist Ian Frazer has reminded us why he is such a prolific TV shootout player, with a win in the 5th heat of the PartyPoker Premier League in Las Vegas. Frazer needed a big result to get into contention to make the final and with this result he broke into the top 4 with one heat to go. He defeated Luke Schwartz heads up who is also knocking on the door of the final, currently in 5th place.

“This is the interview I’ve been waiting to do – a winner’s interview!” said Frazer, who has 26 points from his four matches. “The game plan in these things is patience – I knew I had to get in the top three to get into the heads-up but now I’ve won this heat, I could end up in the final anyway.”

The final heat takes place on today where Luke Schwartz will be aiming to cement a place in the top four and the final table, with those placed from fifth to eighth facing heads-up matches to take the final two spots

A PartyPoker.com spokesman said: “As we go into day six, every single player is mathematically still in it! It is going to be amazingly exciting but the pressure is seriously on Daniel Negreanu, Vanessa Rousso, Phil Hellmuth, Roland De Wolfe and Tony G. All the bottom five play on Wednesday!”

Ian Frazer Wins PartyPoker Premier League Heat 5, GUKPT Club Championship Results 101

GUKPT Club Championship Results
Last weekend the first ever GUKPT Club Championships took place in Grosvenor Casinos in Blackpool, Leeds, Swansea & Thanet. It wasn’t the best attended seroes, with just 10 players in Leeds, 19 in Blackpool, but a more impressive 38 in Swansea and 42 in Thanet. This will no doubt be largely due to the UKIPT Manchester event taking place the same weekend, which is good news for the four winners as they also bagged an extra value seat in the £150,000 Champion of Champions event at the end of the year.
