Stunning Sochi 

MILLIONS Russia takes place between the 3rd and 14th August at the five-star Black Sea resort destination, Casino Sochi, who were announced as a long-term partner of partypoker LIVE only a few months ago. Casino Sochi is used to very high stakes poker, and as recently as last week’s WSOP-Circuit Russia, saw a high roller cash game with pots of over $2,500,000 in the fabulous Onyx VIP room.

Huge cash games expected

Last year’s MILLIONS tournament in Casino Sochi saw two partypoker Live strategic partner casinos, Kings Casino and Dusk Till Dawn, hire private jets to bring players from Europe, and boasted guarantees of more than RUB600,000,000. This year’s edition is going to be even bigger, and the atmosphere even more exciting. Huge cash games are expected, along with players from all over the world including the USA, Canada, Asia, Europe and Russia, in what could be the biggest group of High Rollers and VIPs ever playing together. Jason Koon and Ike Haxton from partypoker have both confirmed their attendance, with Haxton saying:

"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."

Jason Koon spoke to us about his incredible recent run. He couldn't be more excited to head to Russia. 

"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."

Triton’s Richard Yong is as excited as the players, saying: "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."

Casino Sochi is one of the best casinos in the world and the perfect place to play poker, you can see exactly why it has become a haven for poker players by heading to their official site and reading all about them!
