Win your way to the PokerStars Championship Sochi

We'll admit to being a little curious about what to expect when the PokerStars Championship reaches Sochi next month. We've heard great things about the magnificent views of the mountains, the coastline, and the City itself, which hosted the Winter Olympics back in 2014. All of which makes us eager to get there and see for ourselves next month.

You might even be thinking the same, in which case we'd like to give you the chance to join us.

Next week we're running a series of special freerolls that will send one PokerStars player to Sochi absolutely free. We scratched our heads to come up with something to this idea, but finally settled on the "PokerStars Championship Sochi Giveaway Freeroll". We think that puts it best.


Here's how it works.

Every day between May 1 and May 6 we're running two daily global freerolls on PokerStars at 14:00 and 17:00 ET. Each of those events will award the top 25 finishers a seat to the "PokerStars Championship Giveaway Final" on Sunday May 7 at 14:00 ET.

The winner of that will receive a Sochi prize package worth $7,500. Players finishing in the top 25 meanwhile will receive some PokerStars goodies.

If you're thinking that makes this a long shot, well, that's fair enough. But we've never met a winner of an event of this type who has said anything other than "I figured I'd have some fun and give it a try", all while soaking up an unforgettable PokerStars live event experience.

So that's two events every day starting next Monday. What's more you can play as many times as you like to reach the top 25.

It's worth noting that visa restrictions apply when travelling to Russia, which varies depending on which country you're playing from, and the event itself is only open to countries operating certain PokerStars licenses.

Aside from that, good luck. We hope to see you in Sochi for an amazing PokerStars experience.
