The dates for the PartyPoker.com World Open V have been released.

The event will take place from Sunday Oct. 11 to Thursday Oct. 15 at the Palm Beach Casino in London, England and some of the best players in the game will be on hand competing for a piece of a $480,000 prize pool.

Those already confirmed for the 48-person field include Andy Black, and Neil Channing.

PartyPoker's newly sponsored grassroots players Remy Biechel, Felipe 'Mojave' Ramos, Ian Frazer and Bodo Sbrzesny are also expected to play.

The $10,000 buy-in televised tournament features a series of sit-and-go style heats where winners move on to a seven-handed final table with a $250k first place prize on the line.

Entry is traditionally by invitation only, but this year PartyPoker is offering players on the site a chance to qualify online.

The main $650+$50 satellite takes place every Sunday at 2:15 p.m. ET with one package awarded for every 20 players entered.

Daily qualifiers start as little as $3 and there is a satellite into Sunday's main satellite Monday through Saturday at 2:25 p.m. ET and Sunday at 12:55 p.m. ET.

Other changes to the event include triple starting stacks and the heats playing eight handed.
