PartyPoker Big Game in London Next Month
The luxury Les Ambassaduers club in Mayfair, London will host the next PartyPoker Big Game IV. The televised cash game that is a huge hit over here will play for 48 hours straight! Tony G, Luke Schwartz, Phil Laak, Neil Channing and Isaac Haxton have all confirmed for the show so far.
For the first time ever there will be an element of tournament in the cash games, whereby every 2 hours players will vote for which player they want to be evicted, big brother style, from the game and replaced. No doubt if someone like Sammy George makes it down to the game, the chances of him being evicted at any time are about the same as pigs flying.
Tony G has offered to stake internet legend Isildur1, even if that means the nosebleed star has to wear a disguise to protect his anonymity.
“We are delighted to be returning to Les A for the PartyPoker.Com Big Game IV” said Eddie Hearn, managing director of Matchroom Sport. “The event has become one of the most popular televised events in the calendar and this season looks to be the most exciting yet with a whole host of top names and the introduction of the all new player elimination process. Les A has become the central hub for high stakes poker in London and we are excited to be working with Craig and their team again.”
“We have been in contact with Isildur1 and would love him to join the game - if he wants we will even make special arrangements so that he doesn’t have to reveal his identity to anyone. We are quite happy to let him play wearing a mask or in disguise!
“Tony G has even offered to back him, so come on Isildur1 – Tony may even lend you his Kermit the Frog outfit if you choose! We are very serious about this offer and look forward to hearing from him soon.”
The show will be on Channel 5 later this year.
