Party Poker Live MILLIONS 2019 schedule announcedJanuary 8, 2019 1:37 pm
The partypoker Live MILLIONS tour has announced their tournament schedule for the rest of 2019.
This year’s schedule looks different than the 2018 slate, as two tournament locations have been bumped and replaced with new venues and new countries.
Gone from the 2018 schedule are MILLIONS stops in Russia and the UK. Taking their place are tournaments in Brazil and the Czech Republic.
The first event announced is the new series in Brazil. The MILLIONS South America will be played at the Copacabana Palace Hotel in Rio de Janeiro from March 15 to 24. The announced buy-in was $10,300 and there is a guaranteed $5 million prize pool.
After enjoying the warmth of South America in March the Live MILLIONS tour heads north for the more tepid Canadian spring. MILLIONS North America will be played at the Playground Poker Club in Montreal, Quebec, Canada from May 22-27.
The announced buy-in was $10,300 Canadian, and a $5 million guaranteed prize pool. At press time that was just over $7,700 US, but we’ll have to see what conversion rates do between now and then.
Last year when the MILLONS North America event in Montreal had a buy-in of $5,300 Taylor Black outlasted a 1,954-player field to $1.3 million.
The Live MILLONS only stop in Europe this year is at the MILLIONS Europe event at the King’s Resort Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic from August 10-18. The buy-in is €10,300 with a €5 million guaranteed prize pool. Currently that converts to almost $12,000 US.
The last stop on the Live MILLIONS tour is the Baha Mar Resort in the Bahamas. The MILLIONS World tournament, formerly called the Caribbean Poker Party, will be played there from November 15-24. The tournament will have a $10,000 buy-in and a $10 million guaranteed prize pool.
Last season the Caribbean Poker Party main event had a $5,300 buy-in. Filipe Oliveira topped an 1,815-player field to cash $1.5 million.
