The partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Russia festival is set to be the biggest poker event in CIS history thanks to $9 million being guaranteed across five tournaments.
The bulk of the guaranteed prize money will come from the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Russia tournament. $5 million will be won by the time the $5,300 buy-in tournament plays down to a winner on Sep. 14, and $1 million of that huge sum is locked up for the champion.
LIVE MILLIONS Russia has several live and online Day 1s to choose from in addition to some Phase 1s. The Phase 1s cost $550 to enter and anyone progressing from them moves to a $5,300 Online Day 1.
