PartyPoker Premier League VI:  Jonathan Duhamel, Antonio Esfandiari Hot

The PartyPoker Premier League VI featured some big name poker players among the leaders with Dan Shak, Jennifer Tilly, Phil Laak and Jason Mercier topping the Group B overall standings and Jonathan Duhamel along with Antonio Esfandiari topping the Group A overall standings heading into Friday.

From PokerNews.com:

A win for anyone in the last Group A heat will guarantee an automatic spot in the final while a second-place finish for any of the top six should also be enough for an automatic bid.

The top three automatically qualify for the final, with each point they earn equating to 10,000 chips in the final. The players that finish fourth and fifth will have to play heads-up to earn their spot in the final. The player who finishes fourth in Group A will play against the fifth-place finisher in Group B, and the fifth place finisher in Group A will play against the fourth-place finisher in Group B.
