I had no idea, but apparently there is world class poker in Russia. And I’m not even talking about Moscow or Saint Petersburg, but a city of Sochi. Yes, that very Sochi that hosted the Winter Olympic games in 2014. There is a casino there, called Sochi Casino and Resort, and it started to host regular big name tournaments. The very last festival they had, The WSOP Circuit Sochi, that ran from 13 to the 30 of May, 2018, brought a fairly big turnout. And the big European Poker Tour Sochi that ran in March of 2018 was even televized.
