From November 13th to the 17th Party Poker will be at the Playboy Club London in Mayfair for the PartyPoker.com Premier League Poker Mixed Game Championship. The Premiere League is an invitation-only event featuring a hefty $25,000 buy-in that will appear on Sky Sports in the UK, and elsewhere across the globe. The disciplines that will be featured will be Pot Limit Omaha, Pot Limit Holdem, and No Limit Holdem.

The 2011 roster of 12 players has been split into two groups of six, and boasts some of the biggest names in poker. Here is a look at the two heats that will compete in the Party Poker Premiere League:

Heat 1: Tony G, Luke “FullFlush” Schwartz, Max Pescatori, November Niner and 4th place finisher in the 2011 WSOP Main Event Matt Giannetti, Jennifer Tilly, and James Dempsey

Heat 2: Mike Sexton, online qualifier Ben Carpenter, Andrew Feldman, 2010 BLUFF Player of the Year Sorel Mizzi, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, and reigning WPT Player of the Year Andy Frankenberger

At the end of the “heats”, the top 3 players from each group will advance to the final table (which comes with at least $25,000 in prize-money as well as an invite to the 2012 Premiere League). Here is a look at the complete payout structure for the event:

* 1st place — $100,000

* 2nd place — $65,000

* 3rd place — $45,000

* 4th place — $35,000

* 5th place — $30,000

* 6th place — $25,000
