|The Prima Network has guaranteed the largest prize pool in European poker tournament history. Monte Carlo Millions will offer a $3 million prize pool with $1 million designated for the champion. |
Only poker's best and brightest players will fill the 120 seats available at the luxurious Sporting d'Hiver in Monte Carlo, Monaco from November 20-23. The tournament attracts top professional, celebrity and online players from around the world by bringing together the enchantment of the French Riviera, the extravagance of Monte-Carlo and the excitement of poker.
In 2004, the Monte Carlo Millions played host to such poker idols as Phil Ivey, Howard Lederer, Dave Ulliot, Chris Ferguson, Phil Laak, Tony Bloom, Mel Judah, and The Hendon Mob. Last year's Monte Carlo Millions is currently broadcasting on pokerzone TV – Sky Channel 226 in Europe and Kanal5 in Sweden and Denmark. Additional broadcast partners in the U.S., Canada and Australia will be announced shortly.
Seats at the Monte Carlo Millions are acquired in only one of two ways: by personal invitation from world-renowned Tournament Director, Matt Savage, or by winning a satellite tournament. The online tournaments are available now on Prima's network of card rooms through www.montecarlomillions.com.
'There is nothing comparable to playing poker in Monte Carlo,' said Tournament Director Matt Savage. 'Monte Carlo Millions puts you eye-to-eye with the best players in the world, competing for the biggest prize pool in the most luxurious and exciting setting in Europe. It's everything you ever dreamed poker could be, and more.'
