Team Partys very own Ian Frazer took down the fifth heat at the Party Poker Premier League IV at the M resort in Las Vegas. Frazer qualified for the tournament through a Team Party qualifier and now has a chance at making the final table and a guaranteed place in the play off.

This became one of the most intriguing heats yet with three handed play between Ian Frazer, Giovanni Safina and Luke Schwartz.

Frazer said: Go on the Raiser! That was one intense battle it was murder three-handed and just as intense heads-up. Im so happy I am back in contention for the PartyPoker Premier League.

Giovanni Safinas third place finish means that hes guaranteed to make the final table, however a win by Roland De Wolfe could change things. Safina appears to have been a revelation in the tournament after qualifying for just 100 on the Italian Party Poker site. He was subject to verbal onslaughts from Schwartz.

Safina said, That was tough but I have the final table in my sights well just have to see how it goes on Wednesday.

When asked about Schwartzs verbal volleys he seemed unconcerned: hes just a little boy, he added. It seems that Safinas limited English could have been an advantage as the pressure grew!

The next heat sees Laak, Venyamine, Schwartz, De Wolfe, Rousso, Negreanu, Hellmuth and Tony G go to the tables. The pressure is on and were sure to see lots of tactical play that the Premier League is so famous for.
