Full Tilt Poker Promotion - Moscow Millions Tournament
Poker has just been declared a sport in Russia a couple of months ago. That means, none of the restrictions applicable for gambling in Russia will apply for poker. With the US sticking to its dubious UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act), and completely disregarding all WTO (World Trade Organization) claims and recommendations in the process, the balance of power may soon shift to the east, at least as far as poker is concerned.
Full Tilt is definitely on to the trend. I’m sure you’ve already heard of the Moscow Millions, the famous poker tournament (the biggest ever in Russia) to take place between October the 20th and the 22nd of this year. Well, if you were wondering how you could get there, and play in it, FullTilt Poker might just have the answer for you.
The best way to qualify to play alongside names like Howard Lederer and Chris Ferguson is to participate in one of the FullTiltPoker satellites. Remember, Americans are welcome too at Full Tilt, so besides playing poker you might even guarantee yourself a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the Russian capital, in all its splendor (and believe me, it’s gorgeous).
All you have to do is participate in one of the Moscow Million Qualifiers, which run weekly (on every Saturday) through September 22nd.
The prize that you can win in one of these satellites, is a $15K complete package, which not only includes the trip to Moscow and the tournament fees, but also televised appearance beside all those big poker names mentioned above.
Naturally, when a prize like that is involved, the buy-ins for the satellites are also pretty steep. You can either pay $300+$22 to register, or you can choose to fight your way to the top, literally, starting with smaller sub-satellites, like the $4+$0.4 one.
If you don’t even want to sacrifice that much money for the whole deal, Full Tilt gives you the possibility to register for the $4+$0.4 sub-satellite, for only 50 Full Tilt poker points. If you’re a really good player, and if you’re really lucky too, it is possible – at least in theory – to make it to the Moscow Millions without paying a single cent.
