Doesn’t winning €1,000,000 sound great? Well, that is the minimum amount that the MILLIONS Germany Main Event champion will walk away with, as well as their own little slice of poker history. Over eleven days in February, in Rozvadov on the Czech Republic-Germany border, one of the finest casinos in Europe will play host to the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Germany. With €12,500,000 in total guarantees across nine sensational tournaments, it’s going to be magnificent. And you can be a part of it.
There are a couple of ways to book your place in the Czech Republic. One is by buying in to the €5,000,000 guaranteed main event directly for €5,300. The other, more fun way is to win your way in through the myriad of satellites that are running now on partypoker.
Daily $0.50 satellites provide plenty of opportunities to advance to $22 Satellite Quarter Finals. Success in those will send players through to the $109 Semi Finals, with the final hurdle being the weekly $530 Finals, held every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. Winners will receive a €5,300 MILLIONS Germany Main Event seat, with the first 100 satellite qualifiers being given an extra $250.
Live €550 Main Event Mega Satellites will also be running in Rozvadov from the 12th-14th February, with a 225 seats in total being guaranteed across the five satellites.
Main Event Day 1A will shuffle up and deal on Wednesday 14th at 12:00, with Day 1B getting under way later at 17:00. With 40-minute levels and a 1,000,000 starting stack, there will be plenty of room for manoeuvre. Day 1C is on Thursday 15th at 12:00, with Day 1D starting at 17:00 the same day.
Survivors of the four Day 1’s will combine for Day 2 on Friday 16th, when the tournament will switch to 60-minute levels. The money should be reached on Saturday 17th’s Day 3, always a pivotal day in any MILLIONS main event, before the last players standing return on Sunday 18th to fight it out for glory and the MILLIONS Germany Main Event title. Oh, and the small matter of a million euros.
partypoker LIVE is nothing if not generous, with the top ten Main Event finishers each receiving a free $5,300 seat to the record-breaking MILLIONS Online event in December, which will boast a ridiculous $20,000,000 guaranteed prizepool. Not a bad little bonus!
MILLIONS Germany isn’t all about the main event, however, as there are eight huge side events that come with it. For players with the beefiest of bankrolls, MILLIONS Germany will include not one, not two, but an astonishing three Super High Rollers. The first of these two-day events will be held on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th, with a €25,500 buy-in.
Players who want another shot at the Super High Roller can enter the second edition, which starts on Sunday and concludes on Monday, and has an identical format to the first, with a single Re-Entry allowed. If that wasn’t enough, a €51,000 Super High Roller will begin on Monday and finish on Tuesday. The three Super High Rollers each have a €1,000,000 guarantee.
At the other end of the bankroll spectrum, the always-fun €220 Grand Prix will include four online Day 1’s among its nine opening flights, with the €500,000 guaranteed event concluding on Sunday 11th. Other side events will be the €1,100 Open, the €2,700 Warm Up, the €10,300 High Roller and the €1,100 Finale, all of which have €1,000,000 guaranteed.
The action all takes place at the luxurious King’s Casino Europe, which contains the largest poker room in Europe. King’s is well known for catering to player’s every need, and as such is the perfect venue to host such a prestigious partypoker LIVE event. It has previously played host to WSOP, WPT and partypoker LIVE tournaments, proving it is a fantastic place to host major tournament poker. For those wanting a break from the action at the tables, Rozvadov is within driving distance from the historic cities of Nuremberg, Prague and Munich.
All of the MILLIONS Germany players will be hoping to join the prestigious list of partypoker MILLIONS Main Event champions, such as Maria Lampropulos, Aleksandr Gofman and Sam Greenwood.
Who will be next? We can’t wait to find out.
