Play the $9m Sochi Millions via 1c Qualifiers on partypoker
After massively successful festivals earlier in this year, Sochi, Russia, has become a bit of a hot spot for poker tournaments all of a sudden.
It hasn't even reached its peak, though, as its next big event - partypoker MILLIONS Russia - is set become the largest poker tournament in CI history.
With $9 million guaranteed across the 11-day festival, it's going to worth your while regardless - as will the experience of playing poker in Russia's biggest and most glamorous seaside resort.
The partypoker MILLIONS Russia festival will run Sept. 3-14 and, as mentioned, will payout a least $9m over its duration.
The pinnacle will of course be the $5m MILLIONS Russia main event Sept. 6-14.
The live partypoker MILLIONS Russia festival will be held at Sochi Casino and Resort famed for its mountainous coastline, endless beaches and bustling nightlife.
It also, you might remember, played host to the 2014 Winter Olympic games.
