PokerStars Platinum Pass up for grabs in Sochi

By Mad Harper

The EPT is heading back to Sochi this week with an unmissable poker event in this gorgeous Black Sea resort. One of the highlights of the festival will be the special “Moneymaker’s Road to PSPC” tournament awarding the winner a coveted Platinum Pass to the Pokerstars Players Championship next August in Barcelona. This is an unbelievable chance to win a Platinum Pass worth over €26,000 for a tiny buy-in of just RUB 10,300 (approx. $160).

The EPT Open Sochi Main Event runs October 9-13  at Casino Sochi with a RUB 133,000 buy-in and guarantee of RUB 70,000,000. (approx.. $1 million). The EPT Open Sochi High Roller takes place October 12-13 with a RUB 258,000 buy-in (approx. $4,150). The two-day “Moneymaker’s Road to PSPC” event starts October 11. The packed schedule features 24 tournaments in all including several No Limit single re-entry events, two Pot Limit Omaha tourneys and a Weekend Deepstack event.

Sochi is known as the “gateway to the Russian Riviera” and is the perfect place to enjoy a great Autumn poker festival. It’s one of the very few places in Russia with a subtropical climate, which means warm to hot summers and mild winters.

Off the felt activities including the official Players’ Party with a Live Band Show taking place on October 11 at 21:00 in the Casino. For all EPT players, the free bar will be open from 22:00 until midnight. There will also be a special bowling competition, a 'Battle of the Best' Karaoke competition and the chance to meet Team PokerStars Pro and former WSOP Main Event champion Chris Moneymaker.

Please note that some players may need a visa to enter Russia, so please check your status before packing your bags!
