Online poker players are going to have a very good time in the coming weeks and months as a number of terrific new promotions, tournaments, and live events have been announced across the online poker world.
Among the stories we’ll examine this week is PokerStars latest milestone promotion leading up to their historic 800,000,000th tournament, dubbed the Carnival of Tournaments. We'll also take a look at Vanessa Selbst tossing her hat into the ring for the Party Poker Premier League VII, Sky Poker’s coverage of the EPT London as well as the latest from Bet365 Poker and Terminal Poker.
The roster for the Party Poker Premier League VII is now up to five players, as Vanessa Selbst has officially been added to the list of players who will be attending: Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Laak, Tony G, and newly inked Jeff Gross.
The Party Poker Premier League will once again be hosted by bwin.party (the combination of Party Gaming and bWin) but for the first time it will be held in Montreal, at the Playground Poker Club on November 20th.
Each of the 16 players in the round-robin format tournament will put up a $125k entry fee, except for the qualifier from bWin and Party Poker, who after a tough qualification process will get a shot at the pros in Montreal, and if you don’t think these qualifiers have a chance look no further than Premier League IV qualifier Giovanni Safina, who finished in third place and walked away with €120k.

Leading up to their historic 800,000,000th tournament PokerStars has announced their Carnival of Tournaments promotion. All throughout the weeks-long promotion PokerStars will be giving away some $700,000 in added money, not to mention the $2 million in guaranteed prize money that is up for grabs.
But the big event will take place on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 1 PM when PokerStars hosts their 800,000,000th tournament, a $109 buy-in tournament with $1 million guarantee. As an added bonus PokerStars will be randomly giving away $100,000 to random tables during the opening hours of the tournament.
The Sky Poker reporting team is currently over in London, England for the European Poker Tour (EPT) London tournament series, and several interviews and videos have already been posted on the Sky Poker YouTube channel. Among the interviewees that had the Sky Poker microphone thrust in front of them were poker superstars Liv Boeree, Jonathan Duhamel and Daniel Negreanu (all Team PokerStars Pro players by the way), along with Hendon Mobber and UK poker legend Barny Boatman.
