partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Russia Main Event won by Anatoly Filatov for $886,200

Tags: Anatoly Filatov, partypoker.
Posted on 15 August 2018 by "T".

partypoker ambassador Anatoly Filatov emerged victorious in this year's partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Main Event held in Russia after he defeated fellow player Gor Kazaryan in a heads-up battle for the massive first place prize worth $886,200.

Only a few weeks ago, Sochi, the Russian town located on the coast of the Black Sea, played host to the FIFA World Cup. This time, it was poker's turn to shine after the soccer craze thanks to the very successful tournament series called partypoker LIVE MILLIONS.

The US$4,700 (RUB 318,000) Main Event just finished after five days of play. The field reached to almost a thousand entries and with that the prize pool grew to a sweet $4.4 million.

Some of the notables who participated in the action were Bertand "Elky" Grospellier, Maria Lampropulos, and two Russian partypoker ambassadors, Dzmitry Urbanovich and Anatoly Filatov.

Filatov entered the Main Event on Day 1B, and he landed with a modest 2 million chip count. But by the end of Day 2, he was one of the bigger stacks in the tourney, and things went pretty well for him as time passed by - he entered the 8-player final table 5th place in chips.

Eventually, he went up against fellow Russian Gor Kazaryan in a heads-up battle for the trophy and the prize of over $886,000. Filatov actually wasn't in the lead when it boiled down to just the two of them on the table, but he managed to turn things around in his favor pretty quickly.

After a grueling hour of heads-up action, Filatov turned the nut straight versus Kazaryan's two pair. They both went all-in, with the river changing nothing, thus making Filatov the winner of this year's partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Russian Main Event.

We can see that all the winners were from russia.
I wonder how many flew there to participate from other countries Smile
A very nice return for that 4700 USD buy in, for the first place.
Not that the rest had a bad return.

Many congratulations to Anatoly on winning this partypoker event and the first prize of $886,200. It must be even sweeter for him because he is a Party Poker ambassador as well

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.
