3 years ago ● Rob Godmon

The World Series of Poker is coming to Russia! The first ever WSOP Circuit event on Russian soil will take place from the 18th to the 27th May at the fabulous Casino Sochi.

There will be plenty up for grabs in Sochi, with no less than seven Ring events, with the victor in each winning a prestigious and coveted WSOP Circuit Ring. The event is sure to be a festival of poker suitable for all bankroll sizes, with over $4,000,000 in guarantees across the seven events. 

The Main Event will have a buy-in of ₽66,000, equivalent to around $1,100, with a guaranteed prize pool of ₽120,000,000 or around $2,000,000. With Ring Event buy-ins ranging from $275 in the Colossus and Closer events to $5,300 in the Super High Roller, there's something for everyone in Sochi.

The Main Event will have eight Day 1s, giving you plenty of chances to get involved. Two Online Day 1s will take place on partypoker on Sunday May 13th, and Sunday May 20th, before the Live Day 1s kick off on Tuesday 22nd May.

The Colossus will also feature Online Day 1s on partypoker, as well as an Online Day 2 on Thursday 17th May. Live Day 1s begin on Friday 18th May, with the Live Day 2 running on Monday 21st May. Both the online and live fields will converge for the third and final day on Tuesday 22nd May. Satellites to the Main Event will also be available on partypoker soon.

Once you arrive at Casino Sochi, you will understand just why it has quickly become the premier destination for live poker in Eastern Europe. Poker players are the priority, and casino staff work hard to ensure your every need is catered for. The interior of the Casino is visually stunning, and with the Gorky Gorod ski resort right on Casino Sochi’s doorstep, you’ll never be short of anything to do when away from the red-hot action at the felt.
