partypoker Is Closing Out 2018 In Style With Multiple Huge Events

The partypoker LIVE MILLIONS UK is the first of several massive series and events that partypoker is behind in the coming months. The World Poker Tour and partypoker LIVE have teamed up for the WPT Montreal Festival, an exciting series that features combined guarantees of $8,165,000 CAD. The centerpiece of the whole series is the $5,000,000 CAD guaranteed, $5,300 CAD buy-in no-limit hold’em main event, which will run from Oct. 28 – November 4.

Next on the agenda is the massive Caribbean Poker Party (CPP), which is set to take place from Nov. 9-18 at the Baha Mar Casino & Hotel in Nassau, Bahamas. There are 13 events set to take place during the festival, but the whole affair is centered around two gigantic tournaments: The $10,000,000 guaranteed $25,500 buy-in MILLIONS World and the $10,000,000 guaranteed $5,300 buy-in Caribbean Poker Party Main Event.

“There are many coveted titles in poker, from the EPT and WPT Grand Final titles, to WSOP and WSOPE Main Event and Players Championship bracelets, and not forgetting our own MILLIONS Grand Final crown,” said partypoker LIVE president John Duthie. “However, a $10,000,000 guaranteed, $25.5K buy-in tournament is just as important as any of those. We can’t wait to hand the trophy over to our first winner in November. Let’s hope it’s one of the 100+ online qualifiers partypoker will be sending, as that would be quite some story."

Following on the heels of that huge series in the Carribean will be the MILLIONS Online. As previously mentioned, the $20 million guaranteed $5,300 buy-in online event will run from Nov. 25 – Dec. 5 and is expected to be the biggest online tournament ever, with $2.5 million going to the eventual champion.
