Qualifiers begin for Party Poker's Premier League IV

GIBRALTAR (PRESS RELEASE) - 17th December 2009 - PartyPoker has introduced online qualifiers for February's Premier League IV, which is to be held in Las Vegas for the very first time! The latest news also sees the confirmation that JC Tran will be back to defend his title!

There are a number of different ways to qualify for Premier League IV from as little as $2. This year are running qualifiers to find a total of 16 players who will all fly out to Las Vegas to play in a Premier League Poker play-off to see which one of the 16 will be lucky enough to join 11 professional players in Premier League Poker IV. The lucky online qualifiers will play a short series of play-off sit & go's in Las Vegas and the eventual winner will win a $100,000 buy-in to take part in the main Premier League event! Both the play-off and the main event will be filmed for TV and shown across the world.

A spokesman said: "One amazing element of this promotion that provides a truly fantastic opportunity is that one of the 16 qualifiers will be chosen by PartyPoker to receive a $100,000 Team Party contract to be a sponsored player. This decision will be made by PartyPoker within two weeks after the event takes place. We will only get a flavour of who we want to sponsor once we have had a chance to meet and interact with the 16 players that make it out to Las Vegas."
