partypoker MILLIONS Russia Returns to Sochi with $5M Gtd Main Event
After a successful inaugural event last March, partypoker LIVE returns to Sochi, Russia for MILLIONS Russia with a schedule that boasts $9,000,000 in guarantees including a $5 million guaranteed Main Event. In March, Dmitriy Chop outlasted a field of 1,170 to win the €1,100 buy-in Main Event for $225,000. Satellites for this September’s partypoker MILLIONS Russia are already running on partypoker with chances to qualify and win packages to attend the live event at Sochi Resort and Casino, the Black Sea’s five-star poker destination.
The online-live hybrid Main Event consists of Phase 1s and Day 1s available both live and online. Day 1 flights have a buy-in of $5,300 for 1 million chips and will take place online on Aug. 27 and Sept. 3 and live at Sochi Casino and Resort from Sept. 9-11. The Phase 1s feature a smaller buy-in of $550 which gets players 100,000 starting chips. These flights have been running online on Sundays and will also be held live Sept. 6-10. Day 2 onward will be played live from Sept. 11-14 until a winner is declared.
The exciting series also features four side events with $1,000,000 guarantees. Like in the Main Event, players in the $1,100 buy-in EAPT Grand Final can choose between online and live Day 1 starting flights. The High Roller, Super High Roller, and 8-Max events will all be played live.
