Following the launch of the new partypoker LIVE tour, partypoker has just announced the first partypoker Million National event in Sochi, Russia taking place in March. The newly-opened, glamorous Sochi Casino and Resort will host the biggest live poker tournament in CIS history with a $1m guaranteed prize pool – and $200k for first place.

 

A standard feature of partypoker LIVE is that players can take part in online Day 1s. These start Sunday, March 12 - with the $1,100 live event running Friday, March 24 to Monday, March 27.

 Sochi Casino and Resort is a unique location for Russia, and aims to match the very best casinos in Las Vegas. Sochi hosted the Winter Olympics and has long been a popular holiday destination in Russia. The city is surrounded by amazing nature including world-class ski slopes and is located just 30 minutes from the Black Sea which boasts stylish new hotels, bars and clubs.

 

partypoker’s Group Head Tom Waters said: “Hosting the first partypoker Million National event in Russia is a truly exciting opportunity for partypoker and our players. We will be the first global poker operator to offer live poker at the brand new Sochi Casino and Resort, crowning our inaugural partypoker Million National champion.”
