The PartyPoker European Open IV will see its strongest field so far when the action begins on Friday.

The first heat will see a rematch between Surinder Sunar.

Liam Flood will return as well to defend his European Open IV title. Last year, he triumphed over a final table that included former World Open champion Pippa Flanders and John Magill.


The European Open is set up to run in 12 heats, with the winner of each heat moving on to the semi-final stage. This year the runners-up will also get a second chance to move on as they battle for the remaining two seats in the semifinal during "last chance" turbo heats.

According to PartyPoker's sister site, PartyBets, the odds are on Hellmuth to walk away the winner this time around.

"There is a lot of excitement about this year's European Open, and Hellmuth is sure to add value in the commentary box," said a PartyBest spokesman.

"It will be interesting to see the rematch between Obrestad and Tabatabai, but there are so many players to look out for who have had success in this format. The money has been for Hellmuth, but the likes of Helppi, Frazer and Flood have all been well-backed in recent hours."
