Super High Roller specialist adds two new events to action-packed line-up
Elite Super High Roller brand, Triton Poker has again partnered with partypoker LIVE to add two new events to the MILLIONS Russia schedule, cementing the partnership between the world’s most prestigious Super High Roller brand and the world’s biggest poker tour.
Known for its heady high stakes action, Triton Poker’s newly incorporated High Roller and Super High Roller NLH tournaments add sparkle to a comprehensive schedule at MILLIONS Russia, which sees the return of usual MILLIONS favourites.

MILLIONS Russia takes place between August 3-14 at the five-star Black Sea resort, Casino Sochi, who were announced as a long-term partner of partypoker LIVE only a few months ago.
The venue is no stranger to high stakes action, having just recently played host to last week’s WSOP-Circuit Russia. The event was witness to a High Roller cash game boasting pots in excess of $2,500,000, played out in the confines of the fabulous Onyx VIP room.
Looking forward to another great event
Last year’s MILLIONS Russia instalment brought together two partypoker LIVE strategic partner casinos in Kings Casino and Dusk Till Dawn. Adding to the overall VIP High Roller experience players were flown in by private jet, while on the tables guarantees exceeded RUB 600,000,000 (~ $9.5m).
This year’s edition promises to be even bigger, and the atmosphere yet more electric.
Players are expected from all corners including the US, Canada, Asia and Europe, set to battle against a sizeable home turnout. With partypoker heavyweights Jason Koon and Ike Haxton also confirming their attendance alongside Richard Yong from Triton, it has the makings of another High Roller feast in Russia.
Speaking of the exciting collaboration, Ike Haxton said “This partnership brings together the two brands doing the most exciting things in the live tournament world right now. I can’t wait to see what partypoker and Triton can do together,” while Jason Koon commented “The partypoker LIVE and Triton Poker partnership is extremely exciting as they both try to do as much for the players as they can. Triton is incredible at catering for the Super High Roller players and creates such an amazing atmosphere at their venues, which are generally smaller, so the intimate, personal vibe they look for can be implemented. I’m sure with the amazing versatile space at Casino Sochi they will recreate this unique experience for everyone at partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Russia.”
Representing Triton, Richard Yong added “Triton Poker are looking forward to heading to Russia for the first time in their history and are very excited to work with partypoker LIVE on this prestigious event. I am sure our Chinese customers will love the VIP experience that Casino Sochi can offer.”
$100,000 Last Longer and discounted buy-in
As an added bonus the first 100 players who purchase their MILLIONS Russia Main Event seat using partypoker LIVE $ will be automatically seated in an exclusive last longer tournament promising $10,000 for the winner, on top of any tournament winnings.
Alternatively players can buy-in directly to the MILLIONS Russia Main Event for $5,000, a saving of almost $130 on the full buy-in.
pp LIVE $$$ is a flexible currency that can be won in online partypoker satellites and used to pay for event buy-ins, travel, hotels and even visas. pp LIVE $ have a two year expiry and participating players can even win their share of $1,000,000 via the pp LIVE $ Leaderboard which runs throughout the 2018-19 poker season. At the end of the season the entire prizepool will be divvied up between the top 100 players.
What’s more weekly pp LIVE $ satellite guarantees will more than double to $250,000 from June 10th, 2018, giving players ample opportunity to secure their place at MILLIONS Russia.
Triton Poker sets sights on Jeju
Next up for Triton Poker is the wonderful resort of Jeju in South Korea, from July 23-31. Here the high stakes outfit will again play host to the next round of Short Deck tournaments that are currently taking the industry by storm.
Triton’s last event at the Casino Maestral, Montenegro created a prize pool of $12,344,397 from 103 entries, and saw Team partypoker’s Jason Koon record a career high with a $3,579,914 win after seeing off a mixed field made up of recreational businessmen and seasoned pros.
