There’s a clue in the name as to why the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series is unique, but that distinction is about to change after partypoker declared an intention to enter the market.
partypoker associate, and Dusk till Dawn (DTD) owner, Rob Yong, declared on Twitter that the MILLIONS brand would expand to High Roller only events in 2020 with the creation of the MILLIONS Super High Roller Series.
It’s unclear whether the series will become a fixture in the poker calendar. Still, we do know that the MILLIONS Super High Roller Series ambushes the Casino Sochi in Krasnodar, Russia in March.
March 6-15 are the dates, with buy-ins ranging from $25,000 to $250,000, leaving those with slightly smaller purses sobbing into their saucy Sochi saucers.
An official press release is yet to hit the poker media airwaves, but Yong did declare that partypoker would partner with Poker Central on the project.
The schedule is still under lock and key, with the likes of Jason Koon and Ike Haxton strangling any waste from it. Reacting to a question from the former WPT & EPT Champion Andrey Pateychuk, to see the schedule, Yong responded that they would release it in January.
High Stakes Partnerships
partypoker and Poker Central had partnered before, most notably in November when partypoker allowed Cary Katz and his team to run the inaugural Super High Roller Bowl (SHRB) Bahamas as part of the MILLIONS World festival.
After several years of limiting themselves to a Las Vegas base with the SHRB, Poker Masters and the US Poker Open, Poker Central expanded into Asia with an SHRB China, before coupling the British Poker Open (BPO) with the SHRB London. The first Australian Poker Open and SHRB Australia take place in January.
Two players seem to be committed to the event include Jonathan Depa and Dan Smith. Depa is turned on by the promise of high stakes Short-Deck action, and Smith for the No-Limit Hold’em tournaments and snowboarding.
