well that's a nice idea that i am like 99% sure will work out just great, russians love to gamble and surely this event will attract plenty of fellas with lotsa cash, there will be massive drinking involved, lotsa hot melons around and also pretty intense gambling... ahhh sounds like paradise, paradise in sochi.
Massive drinking for sure but Sochi is happened to be set very far from the quality russian night life so the hot melons... I do not think so going to be there. By the way I don't know anybody who would say that they want to go compete on a poker tournament in Russia after they are already everywhere on every online site all the time.

I am thinking about trying to go there, not having the biggest bankroll, but in our country we do not get many chances to play in such big tournaments and russia is not far from lithuania and i know russian language well enough, maybe i will play there.
I certainly live in Sochi Russia but quite far away from me ... 2334 km ... so I certainly do not go there ... it was closer to where I would have thought about the trip .. and in general I prefer to play online
Finally it happened!!! The Russian poker community have been waiting for this for many years, after the poker was recognized in our country illegally .This is a real feast for the Russian grinders. Take my word for it that in Russia a lot of very good players. Both online and offline. I know many strong online players who regularly participate in offline events ( EPT, WSOP,PCA, etc.). They are happy to take part in this event on their land. I will make every effort to qualify for this event. My bankroll does not allow me direct entry.

Sochi is THE anew venue in Russia and it would be very interesting to visit and see what it all feels like. I guess it will feel pretty sterile at the moment but over time this I am sure will change and the resort will grown and grow and offer a little of something for everybody. Give it a go.... you may like it!

Newly opened Sochi Casino and Resort in Russia looks pretty good - classy but not too flashy. The joint effort of PartyPoker and Sochi Casino and Resort will attract many Russian residents as well as generating decent revenue or profit for both enterprises.
