A lot of newcomers looking to win big and experience insane poker action are also expected to be in attendance.

The 10-day poker festival will feature a total of eight events played in no-limit hold’em and short deck formats, with buy-ins starting from $25,000.

All eyes will be on Poker Central’s record-breaking Super High Roller Bowl Russia, the most expensive poker tournament organised in the country, which comes with an entry fee of $250,000. It will be a three-day affair, kicking off on March 13, and will be streamed exclusively on PokerGO.

Another highlight of the festival is a $100,000 short deck event taking place in partnership with Triton Poker, and is scheduled to run on March 11-12.

Casino Sochi manager Artur Voskanyan said they are excited to welcome participants from all over the world and let them experience the beauty of Sochi.
