partypoker dethroned PokerStars from being the ‘Poker Operator Of The Year’ at the recent EGR Awards ceremony and the online poker operator is continuing to take major steps to restablish its brand and become one of the top online poker websites in the world. partypoker introduced its partypoker LIVE tour in 2017 and has been very impressed with the response so far.

The online poker operator has decided to go ahead with another live tour in 2018 and has released its partypoker LIVE tournament schedule which has more than $100 million in guaranteed prize money. partypoker will be taking its live poker festival all across the world and will be making stops in Russia, Canada, Spain and the Czech Republic. We take a look at the eight tour stops that have been confirmed so far.

Partypoker Stopping At Canada, Spain, UK and Russia

The first partypoker stop will be the Caribbean Poker Party festival which takes place in November and will have over $10 million in guaranteed prize money, the second and final stop before the end of the year will be the popular MILLIONS Online event that takes place from Dec 2 – 6 and will have $5 million in guaranteed prize money. The first stop in 2018 will take place at the Kings Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic with the MILLIONS Germany stop taking place from Feb 10-18.

partypoker will then head to Spain for its MILLIONS Grand Final: Barcelona that takes place from April 21-29 and has a guaranteed prize pool of $7.9 million. The tour will then head over to Sochi, Russia for the MILLIONS Russia, Sochi which takes place from Aug 4-12 and will have $5 million in guaranteed prize money. The next stop will be in the United Kingdom when the MILLIONS UK: Dusk Till Dawn takes place from Sep 20 to Oct 9 and has a total of $6.5 million in guaranteed prize money. The final stop for 2018 will be the Caribbean Poker Party that will take place from Nov 10 – 18, 2018 and once again have $10 million in guaranteed prize money.

John Duthie Happy With partypoker LIVE Response

One of the key changes partypoker made was to bring on Mike Sexton as its chairman and John Duthie as its LIVE president. Duthie started his role from Jan 2017 and has done a great job so far in developing and promoting the LIVE tour.

Duthie said that one of the main reasons why the LIVE tour has turned out to be so successful and popular was because the company kept its commitment to make it all about the players. The LIVE brand and the partypoker MILLIONS series have been exceptionally well received and Duthie is confident that the increased prize pools will bring in more players in 2018 and make it a very exciting time for the partypoker brand.

The events which have $10 million guarantees will see 250 players cashout with a minimum of $10,000 while 3 players will walk away with over $1 million.
