Sinclair and Jackson make Day 4 at partypoker MILLIONS Russia

By Mad Harper

Amid a sea of largely Eastern European names, two British players are still in contention for the $1,000,000 top prize at partypoker MILLIONS Russia.

 

Monte Carlo Millions runner-up Paul Jackson and WSOP finalist Jack Sinclair (pictured) have both made it through to Day 4 but are short-stacked on 8,275,000 and 7,700,000 respectively. The current chip leader is Canada's Philipp Zukernik with 40,700,000.

 

partypoker’s second visit to Sochi in Russia has broken records for the country’s biggest ever live poker tournament. The $5,300 partypoker MILLIONS Russia Main Event, which is being held at Sochi Casino and Resort, attracted 999 entries – just one entry shy of the $5,000,000 guarantee. Day 3 starts today with just 53 players including Konstantin Puchkov, Vladimir Troyanovskiy, Jeff Lisandro and Dzmitry Urbanovich.
