Of course it is good situation when party poker live tournament that is going in russia is win by Russian player. And i think prize money for first ppace almost one millions of dollars is very serious money, so i think this tournament is successful for organizers
886k is still not a million dollar in my book but whatever. Way too many russian 'ambassadors' are affiliated with Party for my taste, especially in contrast with the financial restrictions associated with Russia from the EU and US. Interesting...

There are 7 Russians and another player from Belarus. Is a separate country, they speak ethnic Belarusian and russian. It is not strange that the Russians dominated this tournament because the good world of poker loses more time in las vegas. Anyway the Russians are good poker players and they proven this for many times. Congratulations to the players of final table, they earned nice money.
August 15, at 21 MSK, subscribers of Anatoly in the instagram will be able to join the joy of Filatov and a piece of the Sochi poker prize. After all, generous and happy Anatoly will play the following dollar prizes: "5000 $, 2 × 1000 $, 4 × 500 $ and 10 × 100 $" It's really cool

Wow, turning $4,700 into $886,200 is an amazing payday and it would sure change my life. But for starters, I couldn't afford the buy-in so I guess he's doing quite alright anyway. But still, such a huge win must feel really good for sure!
As have been said before, it would be interesting to know how many people flew there to participate.
