This will be ElkY’s first appearance in the Party Poker Premier League, and he seemed very excited about the event in a statement from the press release: ElkY said, “This will be the first time I have taken part in the Premier League and I’m super excited to compete with all those great players in such a unique and interesting format.”

The tournament will take place in Vienna, Austria, and will be the precursor to the World Poker Tour (WPT) Vienna Main Event. Party Poker has also announced that poker’s premier tournament director, Matt Savage, will be running the event itself.

I have long been a fan of the format as it brings together some of the world’s best players with the greatest personalities in the game. WPT Vienna has quickly turned into a must-attend poker festival and its importance on the global poker calendar will only continue to grow.”
