Partypoker On the Offensive with New Super High Roller Tournament in the Bahamas

Millions World is now in direct competition with PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship—both with eight-figure prize pools.

Millions World and the PSPC will play out within a month of each other. Partypoker is guaranteeing $10 million, whereas PokerStars has so far committed to adding $9 million in Platinum Passes and added prize money for its PSPC event.

Partypoker has announced a new $25,000 buy-in “Millions World” tournament to be held as part of the Caribbean Poker Party at the end of the year.
