The sick televised cash frenzy that is the PartyPoker Big Game V is back at a new home. Taking place April 15-17 this year it will take part at the home of UK poker, Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham. The 48 hour cash game is set to feature Tony G, David ‘Viffer’ Peat, Annette Obrestad, Neil Channing, Jennifer Tilly, Roberto Romanello, Robert Williamson III, James Bord and Toby Lewis.
One other player confirmed is the in-form Sam Trickett. “I'm really looking forward to playing in my home town of Nottingham – Dusk Till Dawn is a fitting venue for a prestigious event like the 48 hour cash game,” said Trickett. “The line up is even sicker than last year, so I'll have to be on my A-game!
Simon Trumper, live poker room director of Dusk Till Dawn, said: “Dusk Till Dawn is Europe’s premier poker venue with 45 all dealer dealt tables and 24 plasma screens. Having won two awards for Cardroom of the Year in the last 12 months we are delighted that PartyPoker.com has chosen our venue for the Big Game this year and look forward to welcoming the world’s best poker players to Nottingham.”
