Welcome to the latest edition of the PartyPoker Weekly, your one-stop shop for all the latest PartyPoker news and promotions. This week we bring you the views of poker legend Mike Sexton, details of the Premier League, how to win a WSOP seat and how to get your hands on some free cash. Interested? Then keep on reading!
Mike Sexton Reviews Premier League Players
The PartyPoker sponsored pro Mike Sexton is one of the most experienced poker players in the history of the game. He has seen the likes of Stu Unger emerge from a nobody and turn into a World Series of Poker champion and has rubbed shoulders in some of the biggest games around with some of the most established names in the business. So when Sexton gives his opinions people usually sit up and take note.
The Premier League V kicks off this week in Vienna and Sexton has given his opinions on each of the players who are registered in the $125,000 buy-in main event. Who do you think he describes as the most "wowing to watch" or which player does the legend call the best No Limit Hold'em player of the past year? Check out the links below to find out.
Part 4/4 will be released later this week so make sure you keep checking back into the PartyPoker Blog for that. Also, the PartyPoker live reporting team are in Vienna bringing you live updates from the final heats and the actual Premier Legue. They can be found here.

Pokerfest II Online Just Around The Corner!
The eagerly anticipated Pokerfest II Online gets underway on Apr. 22 and it promises to be bigger and better than ever before. The second edition of the online festival boasts at least 47 events between Apr. 22 and May 22 with $3,500,000 in guarantees and a massive $1,000,000 guaranteed Main Event!
Along with the 47 tournaments there will be multiple side events taking place between April 22 and May 6, meaning PartyPoker is the place to be when it comes to tournament poker.

Daily Dollar Side Events
Every day during Pokerfest II there will be two tournaments, each with a $1 buy-in, running at 13:45 and 16:00 EDT that have what PartyPoker say is "a twist." The reason for the inverted commas is the fact nobody knows what these twists will be and they will only be revealed in the lobby at the last minute! What these twists are only PartyPoker know but we expect them to be different formats with added prizes and value.
