Players who buy directly into Day 1 will receive 1,000,000 in tournament chips and blinds will start at 2,500/5,000 with a 500 ante.

  2. Montreal and the Playground Poker Club play host for the second time to one of poker's largest series when partypoker LIVE MILLIONS comes to town. From April 21-May 2, the scope of the poker eye moves north of the United States border. Season 2 of partypoker LIVE starts with a bang with a C$10 million guaranteed prize pool for a C$5,300 buy-in. The top two finishers are guaranteed at least C$1,000,000. This number holds to form with previous partypoker LIVE events of similar guarantees. The 2017 rendition of this event drew an international crowd of 1,168 and put close to C$6 million in the prize pool to surpass the C$5 million guarantee. Canadian Jean-Pascal Savard emerged victorious over a strong final table featuring Ari Engel, Niall Farrell, and Matt Waxman to win C$956,050 ($696,169). Bigger and Better This year's partypoker LIVE festival features strong guarantees outside of the Main Event. partypoker's success in drawing the high rollers in at Barcelona hopes to be carried over at Playground. On the schedule of events for the MILLIONS North America series is a trio of C$1,000,000 guaranteed tournaments. The first on the list is a C$10,300 High Roller that kicks off the series on April 21 and features two starting days. A C$1,100 event follows on the schedule with two starting flights to put approximately 1,000 runners in the field to meet the guarantee. A similar event at Fallsview in February as part of the Fallsview Poker Classic drew 1,387 entrants for a C$1,100 buy-in. Finally, the big boys get in the action with the C$25,300 Super High Roller that opens on April 23 and wraps up on April 24. Main Event Across Canada The partypoker standard of including online Day 1s holds to form in Montreal (and technically, around the world). Day 1 flights are running on partypoker.com with players able to "bag" and advance to one of two Day 2s. There are five Day 1 flights at Playground and depending on which Day 1 they advance from, players return on either April 28 or April 29 for their respective Day 2. Playground is partnering with another member of the Canadian poker family for live Day 1s. The Deerfoot Casino in Calgary, Alberta is hosting $C5,300 buy-in Day 1 and Day 2 flights. Day 1 in Deerfoot is April 17 followed by Day 2 on April 18. All Day 1s at Playground carry 60-minute levels with the exception of Day 1E, which is reduced to 40-minutes. Any player who bags after Day 2 at Deerfoot earns $1,200 expenses to head to Playground for April 30th's Day 3 where the full field is to be assembled. The Main Event wraps on May 2 on Day 5 with a live-streamed final table exclusively on partypoker.com. Post-Lims Galore The seven-figure guarantees are far from over when the Main Event starts. There are two more C$ 1,000,000 prize pools that take place starting on April 30. The C$1,100 Turbo opens with two starting flights spread across April 30 and May 1. The final table plays out on May 2 with 30-minute levels for the duration of the tournament. It's not called a "High Roller" but the $10,300 Finale carries the same buy-in as is predecessor along with a seven-figure guarantee. There is only one Day 1 for the Finale followed by Day 2 on May 1 and the final table on May 2.
  3. partypoker’s award-winning tournament, MILLIONS North America, returns to the Playground Poker Club on April 21. The festival is headlined by an inviting CAD $10,000,000 guaranteed Main Event with a $5,300 buy-in. If the mere total prize pool wasn’t enough to get players adrenaline spiking, it’s a certainty that, at a minimum, the top three finishers in the event will all walk away with at least CAD $1 million. Three instant millionaires. CAD $10 MILLION Guaranteed As partypoker continues to expand on their "player’s first" agenda, they find themselves offering some of the most ambitious tournaments of the year. A CAD $10 million guarantee may not be an easy number to hit. In fact, even though they have five starting flights (beginning on Tuesday, April 24) they are going to need 2000 runners in order to cover the guarantee. That’s great news for players - if they get there or even surpass it, there’s a massive prize pool. If by chance they happen to miss, there would be some added value in overlay. Either way, if players have ever been inclined to make it to Montreal - partypoker MILLIONS North America is the tournament to enter. Qualify for MILLIONS North America Online In order to help them hit such a lofty attendee milestone, partypoker is running non-stop qualifiers on their site. Buy-ins start for as little as $0.50. Players can step their way through the satellite tree and wind up with a ticket that will have them seated in one of the largest tournaments of the year. MILLIONS North America Centrolls: a $0.50 satellite that guarantees at least five tickets to the $22 level. MILLIONS North America Quarter Finals: $22 buy-in. Those who make it through bring their stack with them to the Semi-Finals. Players who make more than one Semi-Final bring their largest stack forward. MILLIONS North America Semi-Finals: $109 buy-in. Same concept as the Quarter Finals. Build a stack to bring forward to the Finals. MILLIONS North America Mega Satellite: $530 buy-in. Win or buy your way into the Sunday satellite where no fewer than 10 seats will be guaranteed. Players can win multiple seats which can either be used for multiple entries or even sold. Like most step satellites, players can jump into the process wherever their bankroll allows. Sign-up for a Mypartypokerlive.com account today and you'll get a $22 tournament ticket credited to your account so you can start trying to qualify for free! In Person Mega Satellites In addition to the non-stop online qualifying action, players who make it to the Playground Poker Club early will have a number of opportunities to win their way into the Main Event. Beginning on Sunday, April 22, the card room will be running a series of two-step mega satellites. Buy-ins begin at CAD $110 + $10 and they will feed, in total, a guaranteed 65 total seats to the Main Event. As value hunters, trophy seekers and shot takers descend on the Playground Poker Club in Montreal beginning on April 21, players have plenty of opportunities to win their seats at a fraction of the price. The path to partypoker MILLIONS North America starts for just $0.50 with qualifiers running right now around the clock online and in-person satellites starting on April 22.
  4. “If you’re a poker player, come to Montreal in April. We’ve got about 1,000 people to be qualifiers. Very soft field! Thank you very much!” Playground Poker Club's Phil Sabbah, pointing to the sky, was fired up as he accepted the American Poker Award for last year's partypoker MILLION North America event at his Montreal-based club. Why wouldn’t he be? Despite the APA's being sponsored by PokerStars, partypoker’s new “players first” narrative helped overcome some long odds to take home the trophy for Event Of The Year. The tournament was so well-received in 2017, partypoker LIVE is doubling down in 2018. They've increased the guarantee of the upcoming MILLIONS North America Main Event to an enormous $10,000,000 CAD (~ $7,650,000 US) and they are doing everything they can to make this year even better than the last. MILLIONS Main Event The $5,300 Main Event of the partypoker MILLIONS North America follows in the footsteps of their other recent Main Events. Starting on Tuesday, April 24 players have up to five starting flights to choose from, each one allowing for a single re-entry. Sixty-minute levels (except for Day 1E which is paired down to 40 minutes) and starting stacks of 100 big blinds make it so players have some wiggle room but also moving swiftly enough to ensure that plenty of players will be busting out in the first few levels. The prize pool, a minimum of CAD $10,000,000, is going to require no less than 2000 runners to reach the guarantee. That could be a tough number to hit. Helping to bring players through the Playground Poker Club doors though will be, for a lucky few, the promise of a seven-figure score. Each of the top three players at the final table will walk away with a cash of CAD $1,000,000 or more. But unlike the World Poker Tour Argentina stop - only the last player standing will get to hoist the partypoker trophy. Win And You’re In partypoker is looking to make MILLIONS North America one of the biggest events of the year by packing the field with qualifiers. If they have it their way, there will be almost half who found their way to a seat by paying a fraction of the buy-in by winning seats via satellites. Online, partypoker is offering their Phases tournaments to help people win their way into the Main Event, starting for as little as $0.50. Players can work their way up the ladder or buy directly into the $530 MILLIONS North America Mega Satellite tournaments. Taking place on Sundays at 4 pm EST, each of the mega satellites guarantees at least ten seats to the Montreal Main Event. Multiple seats won can be used for re-entry. A Festival Of Events Though the Main Event is the major focus of the MILLIONS North America tour stop, it’s not the only event on the calendar. The entire festival takes place from April 21- May 2 and includes a CAD $25,000 Super High Roller, a CAD $10,000 High Roller, two CAD $1,000 events, and also a CAD $10,000 MILLIONS Finale, just in case players need a trip saver. In total, the schedule guarantees CAD $15,000,000 over the six total events. All of the action takes place at one of the world's premiere card rooms, the Playground Poker Club, just 20 minutes outside of Montreal. The CAD $1,000 Opening Event kicks off on April 21, with Day 1A of the Main Event getting underway on April 24. Follow the Action from Home If you're not lucky enough to win an online package or simply want to be able to follow the action as some of poker's top tournament players chase down a seven-figure score, you can sign up for Mypartypokerlive.com account now and get access to exclusive live updates, videos and the final table live stream. You'll also get a free $22 tournament ticket just for signing up.
  5. The partypoker LIVE MILLIONS series hits its North American stop in Montreal in late April for a CAD $10 million guaranteed event. The buy-in for the event is CAD $5,300 but New Jersey online player Dan 'dazedace' DiZenzo is playing for one-tenth of that amount. DiZenzo earned his seat via satellite on partpokerNJ and is one of close to three dozen players from New Jersey to earn a qualifying seat. Familiar With The Territory The traveling pro has cashes in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Nevada so far in 2018 and could not miss a chance to win a seat to one of the largest events in the world. Between October, the month when he won the PokerStarsNJ NJCOOP Main Event, and his satellite seat finish, DiZenzo had not recorded an online cash, according to PocketFives. Sometimes it can take players a couple tries to win a satellite seat but DiZenzo claimed his on the first try. DiZenzo says he ran well during the middle stages of the tournament and “cruised” to the final table. DiZenzo has been a part of the New Jersey online ecosystem since play opened in 2013. A veteran of his experience recognizes the impact qualifiers can have on growing a player pool and looks forward to future offerings. “Having qualifiers, in general, is always a good thing for bigger buy-in MTTs,” DiZenzo said. “We all play MTTs to have that one massive score and satellites offer that experience for all players. Having these satellites in New Jersey is super convenient for us, and shows that people are willing to play if they simply offer them to us.” Second Chance On The Way? A massive score like the one DiZenzo speaks of almost happened for him in November of last year. DiZenzo took eighth place in a field of 1,061 at the partypoker Caribbean Poker Party Main Event in Punta Cana won by Sam Greenwood for $1 million. The $70,000 score for DiZenzo might have been more were it not for pocket kings getting cracked right before the final table. The cash was the fifth-largest in a career that includes almost $2 million in combined live and online earnings. Although he fell short in a painful fashion of a life-altering win, DiZenzo had a positive enough experience with the partypoker brand to be hyped for the upcoming Montreal event at the Playground Poker Club. “I am pretty excited. Punta Cana was my first partypoker MILLIONS event and I was impressed with how everything was run there. My expectations for the event in Canada is that it will be just as good if not better, given the hype around the $10 million guaranteed.” DiZenzo logs his share of miles every year but this is the first time he is traveling beyond the wall to play in Montreal. An avid foodie as well as a poker player, DiZenzo looks forward to all that the city has to offer. “I have talked to all my friends who have played there in the past, and they all seem to tell me it is one of the best rooms to play in,” DiZenzo noted. “I haven't really looked too much into the city and what they have to offer outside of poker, but I have heard good things about the restaurants in Montreal.” More Online in the Future MILLIONS North America marks one of the final events for DiZenzo before he makes the annual trek for a summer in Las Vegas. In that time, it is possible that the online pipeline between New Jersey, Nevada, Delaware, and possibly Pennsylvania will officially open. Is that pipeline enough for DiZenzo to cut back on his travel and play more online? He’s weighing the options. “I am looking forward to when more states start combining liquidity and growing the player fields and prize pools. I would definitely play more than I have been playing once the player pools start to grow with new states coming on board.”
  6. The partypoker MILLIONS keeps making promises that their live tour is going to raise the bar for live poker events around the world. They proved it this week in Montreal with the partypoker MILLIONS North America event paying out three seven-figure scores in the Main Event alone and at the end of it all Taylor Black was standing tall with a career-best score and his first major title. Tommy Nguyen raised to 12,000,000 from UTG+1 before Black raised to 35,000,000 from the hijack. The flop came [poker card="8h"][poker card="5d"][poker card="3c"] and both players checked. After the [poker card="8c"] turn, Nguyen bet 27,000,000 and Black called. The river was the [poker card="6s"], Nguyen checked, Black moved all in and Nguyen called all in. Black showed [poker card="jd"][poker card="8s"] for trip eights while Nguyen turned over [poker card="9d"][poker card="6c"] for a rivered two pair and was eliminated in eighth place. Black only had a supporting role in the next elimination just 38 minutes later. Black raised to 15,000,000 from UTG, Anthony Ruberto called from UTG+1 before George Lagos moved all in for 85,000,000 from the small blind. Black tossed his cards into the muck, but Ruberto called and showed [poker card="9d"][poker card="9s"] which put him ahead of Lagos' [poker card="7d"][poker card="6d"]. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="jd"][poker card="5s"] flop gave Lagos a flush draw which the [poker card="8d"] turn completed. The river was the [poker card="3d"] though, giving Ruberto a better flush and sending Lagos home in seventh. Just 40 minutes later, Black went back to work in sending players home. Demosthenes Kiriopoulos moved all in for 59,000,000 from UTG and Black called from the cutoff. Kiriopoulos showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="2s"] while Black was ahead with [poker card="5d"][poker card="5s"]. The [poker card="6c"][poker card="4s"][poker card="3c"] flop produced no relief for Kiriopoulos. Neither did the [poker card="8c"] turn or [poker card="9d"] river and he was eliminated in sixth place. Nearly two hours passed before another player was sent packing. Markus Prinz limped from UTG for 10,000,000, Charles La Boissonniere moved all in from the cutoff for 147,000,000 and Ruberto moved all in over the top of everybody for 555,000,000 and Prinz folded. The board ran out [poker card="9s"][poker card="7h"][poker card="5d"][poker card="9c"][poker card="3d"] to end La Boissonniere's run in fifth. Prinz's tournament ended just a few minutes later in a blind vs. battle scenario. Action folded to Prinz in the small blind and he moved all in for 158,000,000 and Darryll Fish called from the big blind. Prinz showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="5c"] but got bad news when Fish happily showed [poker card="jc"][poker card="jd"] and then could only watch helplessly as the [poker card="9c"][poker card="8s"][poker card="3d"][poker card="8d"][poker card="2d"] runout did nothing to save him. The final three players were all guaranteed at least $1 million CAD and it took just over an hour to go from three to two remaining players. Ruberto raised to 25,000,000 from the button, Fish folded the small blind, but Black made it 85,000,000 to go and Ruberto called. Black then checked after the [poker card="jh"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4d"] flop, allowing Ruberto to bet 25,000,000. Black re-raised to 135,000,000 and Ruberto called. The turn was the [poker card="8c"] and Black check-called after Ruberto moved all in for 439,000,000. Black showed [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"] for top set while Ruberto had just ace-high with [poker card="ac"][poker card="7h"]. Black started heads-up play with a nearly 4-1 lead over Fish but that didn't stop the former WPT champion from attempting to mount a comeback. Over the three hours and 20 minutes of one-on-one play, Fish did briefly take the lead but Black erased that deficit quickly and eventually eliminated Fish. On the final hand of the night, Fish made it 45,000,000 from the button and Black re-raised to 140,000,000 and Fish called. After the [poker card="9d"][poker card="6h"][poker card="4h"] flop, Black fired out a bet of 130,000,000 and Fish moved all in for 354,000,000. Black called and quickly turned over [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"] while Fish showed [poker card="qs"][poker card="9s"] for top pair. The [poker card="6s"] turn took away Fish's draw to two pair. The [poker card="qh"] river cruelly gave Fish two pair but eliminated him in second place giving Black the first major win of his poker career. Final Table Payouts Taylor Black - $1,400,000 CAD Darryll Fish - $1,200,000 CAD Anthony Ruberto - $1,000,000 CAD Markus Prinz - $800,000 CAD Charles La Boissonniere - $600,000 CAD Demosthenes Kiriopoulos - $400,000 CAD George Lagos - $302,500 CAD Tommy Nguyen - $215,000 CAD
