Dynamo To Perform At WPT Venice
The €4,950 buy-in World Poker Tour Venice Main Event gets under way on Monday, Feb. 6 at 1300 CET and it promises to be one of the most memorable tournaments in Europe. Some of the biggest names in European poker are expected to descend on the most romantic city in the world, but there will be no love lost between the likes of James Akenhead, John Eames, Roberto Romanello, Jake Cody and PartyPoker sponsored pros Tony G, Kara Scott and Giovanni Rizzo.
In fact, the entire World Poker Tour production team, complete with the beautiful Royal Flush Girls, has gotten the city buzzing, but it's a young man from Bradford, West Yorkshire, England who is causing an even bigger stir. Steven Frayne, better known to millions as Dynamo, is regarded as one of the very best magicians in the entire world and has performed for the likes of Jay Z, Diddy, Will Smith and Chris Martin of Coldplay!
By the end of the week the WPT Venice participants will be able to add their names to that exclusive list, because Dynamo is going to give them a private 90-minute performance absolutely free! Check out the short clip below to sample some of Dynamo's mind-blowing trickery!
The PartyPoker team will be reporting on all the action from the WPT Venice Grand Prix Main Event so if you want to follow the progress of your favourite poker players then head over to the PartyPoker blog right now.

Tony G Winds Up Max Pescatori
During the PartyPoker Premier League Mixed Game Championship last November Tony G and Max Pescatori shared plenty of banter and trash talk at the tables and it seems to have continued in the run up to WPT Venice.
Pescatori, who is affectionately known as "The Pirate," starred in a short video replying to Tony G's comments but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears as Tony G almost instantly replied stating he was going to make Pescatori walk the plank and even use Dynamo to make him disappear all together!
