PokerNews has announced that it will be the official sponsor of the PartyPoker Big Game IV which is scheduled to take place April 11-13 at the Les Ambassadeurs club in Mayfair, London.
Including branding at the event, random pots throughout the game will be dubbed "PokerNews Pots," in which those pots will see an extra $1,000 added to it for the winner. Also, walk-ons to the game will come through the crowd to their own music, if you have any musical suggestions for players, let us know on our forums.
The 48-hour cash game will feature some of poker's best, including PokerNews' own Tony G, Luke "Full Flush" Schwartz, Phil Laak, Neil Channing, Jennifer Tilly, Issac Haxton, and more. Tony G has also extended an invitation to online poker phenom Isildur1 to come and participate in the game. Not just that, Tony has also offered to stake Isildur1 for the game and Isildur1 has accepted the offer! Now in its fourth season, the Big Game has become one of the most popular poker series on TV in the UK and throughout the world.
"This is a great opportunity for PokerNews. We're thrilled to be the official sponsor for the PartyPoker Big Game IV," PokerNews Chief Robbie Davies said. "The Big Game is such a high profile event that keeps getting bigger every year."
