    This special tournament is only available to players who created their PokerStars account via PokerNews.

PokerStars is running one of its Championship events in Sochi, Russia where the Main Event has a massive RUB 150 milllion (approx. $2.6 million) prize pool. The buy-in for PokerStars Championship Sochi Main Event weighs in at RUB 318,000 (approx. $5,590) but thanks to PokerNews, you could be heading to Russia for only $1.

Keep your schedules free on Apr. 8 because this is the date the PokerNews-exclusive Sochi Package tournament takes place. Kicking off at 9:05 p.m. CET on Apr. 8, the Exclusive PokerStars Sochi Package tournament guarantees at least one player will win a package to the PokerStars Championship Sochi Main Event despite the tournament only commanding a $1.10 buy-in.

The PokerNews-exclusive event sees you sit down with 3,000 chips and play to blinds starting at 10/20, which increase every 10 minutes, giving you ample opportunity to play your best poker and, hopefully, win the amazing package to Sochi.

Whoever takes down the Excluisve PokerStars Sochi Package tournament wins:

  • A seat to the PokerStars Championship Sochi Main Event
  • Hotel accommodation in Sochi

PokerStars will also assist you in getting to Russia including offering invitations required to obtain the relevant visa.

All you need to do to get involved in this value-packed $1 tournament is to have created your account via PokerNews links (and have used our marketing codes) and you'll be eligible to play. Those of you who already have a PokerStars account should be able to register right now, if you don't have a PokerStars account, you have until Apr. 7 to create one using our marketing code "PNEWS" and making a deposit using the code "STARS600." Completing these simple steps now only gives you access to this special tournament but you'll also receive a 100% up to $600 first deposit bonus.
