PartyPoker's 48-hour marathon cash game is headed back to the UK this Spring and is bringing a few of the game's hottest players with it.

The Big Game V will go off April 15-17 at Dusk Till Dawn poker club in Nottingham, UK.

Those already pencilled in to play include Annette Obrestad, Tony G, Neil Channing, Jennifer Tilly, Roberto Romanello, Robert Williamson III, James Bord, Toby Lewis, David ‘Viffer’ Peat and a red-hot hometown hero in Titan Poker pro Sam Trickett.

“I'm really looking forward to playing in my home town of Nottingham," said Trickett, who has had a blistering start to 2011 collecting $2,952,291 in live tournament earnings so far.

"Dusk Till Dawn is a fitting venue for a prestigious event like the 48-hour cash game. The line up is even sicker than last year, so I'll have to be on my A-game.”

PartyPoker is also offering its online poker players a chance to win one of nine $15,000 packages to the event, which includes a $13,000 buy-in and $2,000 in spending money.

To win a buy-in for the Big Game V, players must opt-in and compete in one of three points races running March 21- April 3.

In 2010, the Big Game IV took place in London with David "Viffer" Peat booking the biggest win at £147k. He sat through the entire 48-hour session.
