Today sees the last chance to qualify online for the famous PartyPoker.com Million. The $600+$40 online satellite takes place at 16.15 ET.
The eight day PartyPoker.com Million VI from the 3rd - 10th May 2008 will sail from Venice in Italy, stopping in Bari, Olympia/Katakolon in Greece, Izmir and Istanbul in Turkey and Dubrovnik in Croatia . The cruise will then return to Venice. The ship, the MSC Poesia, is a state of the art cruise liner packed with facilities and most of the cabins are now full. On board there will be restaurants, bars, tennis courts, mini golf, pools, spas, discos, shopping and more…and not forgetting a massive 24/7 card room.
The PartyPoker.com Million VI package is worth $12,000, comprising $8,200 buy-in for the no limit texas hold'em main event, $2,700 for the accommodation and the cruise and $1,100 spending money. The action will be filmed for broadcast worldwide.
Previous winners of the PartyPoker.com Million include Kathy Liebert, Howard Lederer, Erick Lindgren, Michael Gracz and Mike Schneider. The first PartyPoker.com Million was a huge breakthrough for poker being the first hold'em tournament to offer a $1,000,000 first prize, the first tournament to combine direct buy-ins with online qualifiers and the first to hold its finals on a cruise liner. The result was momentous too, with Kathy Liebert's victory marking the first major tournament win by a woman.
Qualifiers for Sunday's main $600+$40 main satellite started from as little as $1 promising a $12,000 package for every twenty players taking part and a guarantee that five packages will be won. PartyBets.com will offer online betting options for the poker on the high seas nearer the time.
