'I am looking forward to playing in the Premier League.'

11-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth has been added to the PartyPoker Premier League IV line-up.

“I am looking forward to playing in the Premier League and starting the new decade off on the right note,” said Hellmuth. “After being points leader in the Premier League in 2006, 2007 and 2008 I was relegated, and it is time to step up and claim a title.”

The event is set to take place in Las Vegas Feb. 12-18 with 12 players vying for piece of a $1.5 million prize pool.

Last year J.C. Tran won the coveted title and $300,000 first-place prize defeating a final table that included Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Juha Helppi, Tony G, Roland de Wolfe and 2008 WSOP Main Event champion Peter Eastgate.

This year, 11 top pros will be joined by one PartyPoker qualifier in the field.

A total of 16 qualifiers will fly out to Las Vegas to play in a Premier League Poker play-off to earn the $100,000 buy-in.

Both the play-off and the main event will be filmed for TV and one of the 16 qualifiers will be also chosen by PartyPoker to receive a $100,000 Team Party sponsorship contract.

Country specific qualifiers are still available on PartyPoker.
