05Satellites

As always in partypoker LIVE tournaments, you can play the PPL Dollars satelittes. If you do not know what is this, please, follow this link to detailed explanation (Russian language).

Briefly: if you used to play a qualifying tournament, for example, for $22 to win a ticket to a tournament for $215, now players are given the opportunity to play for whole packages with T$ – if you win a package with 200T$, you can either play several tournaments cheaper or one dear. Dispose of it as you wish. Tournament dollars will be stored on your account for 12 months.


You can start your journey at partypoker with just $ 2.20. Thousands of tournament dollars are played in dozens of satellites with various buy-ins every day. You can find a new T $ selection grid in the partypoker lobby. Select the POKER – partypoker LIVE – Region “Tourney Dollars” section:

To participate in any SPF Final tournament, simply win the required amount of T$, then go to a special rack in the casino and register for the tournament you need


More than that, all participants of the upcoming SPF Final is waiting for an interesting innovation: the satellites are included in the schedule, in which you get a ticket to the target tournament, having filled a certain number of chips. At the same time, if you still have a stack, then you can continue the game, and try to fill one more entry!

For example: tournament #7, December 20 at 10:30. This is a satellite to the Warm Up tournament with a buy-in of 4,200 rubles. For this money you will be given a stack of 10,000 chips. Suppose after a while your stack has become 135,000 chips. You exchange 100,000 of them for a Warm Up ticket, and the remaining 35,000 remain in the game, and you can try again to win entry — you will need to fill in another 100,000 chips. Repeat to infinity.

 

06Online days

For fans of playing on the Internet, online days of the Grand Prix Russia tournament with a buy-in of 15,400 rubles are provided. Each of these days will start from December 11 to December 15 inclusive at 21:00 Moscow time.

Players who remain in the tournament at the end of the online day will automatically be considered winners of the tournament. The minimum prize money will be credited immediately to the partypoker account.

You can play any number of Days 1 online or offline, but on Day 2 only your largest stack from Day 1 will pass. Thus, in the Grand Prix Russia tournament you can enter the prize area up to 13 times in a row!

You can find online days in the partypoker client in the POKER – partypoker LIVE – Region: “Russia and CIS” section.

07Location

EAPT Grand Final will be held in the best casino in the post-Soviet space – Sochi Casino. It offers a five-star complex, which includes several rooms for playing poker, hundreds of slot machines and dozens of tables for card games and roulette.

In addition to gambling, guests of the Casino Sochi are waiting for Brunello’s signature cuisine restaurant, the Royal bar, a banquet hall, Velvet cabaret theater and a conference hall.

08How to get there

First and obvious variant – by plane.

Sochi International Airport is among the ten largest airports in Russia. Regular flights from Moscow arrive in daily; with a flight time of approximately two hours. Most major cities in Russia also serve Sochi. Transfers from the Airport to Casino will take about 30 minutes.

Flight to Russia and Moscow are available from almost all major international airports.


If you travel by train, your terminal – Adler railway station. Then you need to take the “Lastochka” train.

The comfortable “Lastochka” train departs from Sochi and Adler train stations, and also the Sochi Airport, and terminates at either the Esto-Sadok station. Please note that the train’s schedule varies depending on the season.

The Casino is two kilometers away from train stations and can be reached by taxi or bus #105, #105с and #135.


If you travel to Sochi Casino by personal car (or you rent a car) you need to go to A-149 “Old Krasnopolyanskoe highway” or “New Krasnopolyanskoe highway” and move 42 kilometers to the resort “Gorky Gorod”, then turn left onto Kashbaza street and go straight.

The old road is more winding and goes past the airport and through the villages of Krasnaya Polyana and esto-Sadok. That new road is Expressway, built for the Winter Olympics 2014 and it will take you to the resort faster. But be careful, the drivers often overtake on the opposite line and not respect the speed limit, although work in the area of the camera.
