Partypoker has announced that 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event champion and Player of the Year Greg Merson has joined the $125,000 buy-in Premier League Poker VII Main Event at the Playground Poker Club in Montreal from Nov. 20 through 26.

Merson joined an all-star lineup that includes Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst, Tony G, Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Laak, and Jeff Gross.

“It is a privilege to be invited to the best super high roller event in the world," Merson told the partypoker blog.

According to partypoker, the 12 players will be split into two groups of six, each competing in preliminary heats to earn a spot at the final table. The eventual winner will take home $350,000 and join the likes of Juha Helppi, Andy Black, JC Tran, David Benyamine, Scott Seiver and Dan Shak as champions of the event, which will be anchored by Kara Scott and commentated by Jesse May.

Shak won the Premier League VI earlier this year for $450,000 after defeating Sam Trickett heads-up for the title.
