Following on from the hugely successful partypoker LIVE Sochi event in March, which smashed its $1 million guarantee, the partypoker blog is delighted to announce the next partypoker-run tournament at the Sochi Casino and Resort will take place between September 1-11 and see the prize pool swell to $5 million* with $1 million* locked up for the eventual champion.
Like the MILLIONS event at Dusk Till Dawn, players can get into the partypoker MILLIONS Russia tournament a number of ways. Players have the facility to buy into live and online Phase 1 tournaments for $550*, directly buy into a live Day 1 for $5,000* or qualify on partypoker from April 2.
partypoker LIVE President John Duthie said: “After the hugely successful first event in Sochi, partypoker LIVE will be coming back! This event was received so well by the Russian community its clear there is an appetite for poker in this region. So we will be returning in September for the $5,000,000* guaranteed event and making one player a millionaire!”
Artur Voskanyan, the founder of the Poker Club Management said: “The feedback we have had from our players have been astounding that we only want to build on this success. Bringing partypoker LIVE back to this five-star location in Sochi with a $5,000,000 *guaranteed prizepool and $1,000,000* for the winner shows the commitment to the players that we are dedicated to make poker great again.”
One player who we should expect to see at partypoker MILLIONS Russia is the latest addition to the Team partypoker roster, Anatoly Filatov. A Russian native, Filatov will be playing his A-game throughout the $5 million* guaranteed event and attempting to keep the monster-sized first place prize on home soil.
