WPT: The Five Diamond World Poker Classic
The first ever World Poker Tour event was played at the Bellagio and was called the Five Diamond World Poker Classic. The tournament was a huge success and helped in making stars of the likes of John Juanda, Freddy Deeb, Scotty Nguyen and eventual champion Gus Hansen. It has been almost ten years since that event and since then, the Five Diamond World Poker Classic has continued to be one of the most prestigious tournaments of the year.
In 2011, the Five Diamond World Poker Classic returns to the world famous Bellagio, taking place from Dec. 6 to Dec. 11 and as usual, Party Poker is the best place to win a WPT tournament package.
Five Diamond World Poker Classic $14,000 Tournament Package
- $10,300 Main Event buy-in
- 7 nights’ accommodation in the luxurious Bellagio hotel rooms.
- $2,000 spending money
Last year it was Antonio ‘The Magician’ Esfandiari who went into the record books as the champion of the Bellagio, taking home a massive $870,000 when he bested the 437-player field. Join Esfandiari as a Five Diamond World Poker Classic Champ and take to the felt his December!
Make sure you head to Party Poker now and start winning your way to the Bellagio. There will be at least one $14,000 package guaranteed every Sunday and plenty of qualifiers for that event throughout the week.
Tony G Talks Premier League
The line-up for the PartyPoker.com Premier League Poker Mixed Game Championship was announced last week and of course, Tony G had something to say about each and every one of his opponents.
A full rundown of what was said can be found on Tony G’s Blog, but we thought we would pick some of our favorites.
Matt Gianetti: “He’s good but not as good as Martin Zasko. Hellmuth loves him too much, he talked about him every second in the live stream at WPT Malta. I’m not sure that’s a good thing Matt.”
Andrew Feldman: ”He used to be a paper boy – I gave him his break in tv poker. Don’t try and bum hunt me online at 4am in the morning Andrew.
Sorel Mizzi: ”Is he cut from the top or bottom of the pack? He could do with the guiding hand of Tony G.
The Premier League is set to take place from Nov. 13 through Nov. 17 and we expect to hear from Tony G after the event on his Party Poker blog.
