Rob Yong’s followers choose Millions venue
PartyPoker is making preparations to hold the third season of its flagship series Millions. Rob Yong has already announced that entry to all Maine Events will cost $10 000 and the guarantee will be equal to around $10 000 000.
This is not the only change in the series: PartyPoker leaders are ruminating about the new venue for this poker festival. Any interested player is able to express his opinion on the issue since Yong created a poll related to the new location for holding the series on his Twitter page.
Season III 2020-2021 of @partypoker MILLIONS will be minimum $10K buy-in & $10M GTE [1,000 entries], Bahamas & Vegas are already locked in - - we start to look at locations next week - which location do you think would be must suitable for this size of Main Event;— Rob Yong (@rob_yong_) 17 августа 2019 г.
Yong has offered three options for the Millions venue: Barcelona, London and Cyprus. Within 10 hours after the poll was created, London came in top place getting 39% of the votes. Barcelona is ranked second (36%), and Cyprus is in the third place - 10%.
Around 15% voted for the fourth option - "Other" place and specified their choice in the comments. Most players believe Paris would be a good location for the festival. Large poker series have not been held in France for a long time, and at the end of this year, a few prestigious poker clubs will open in Paris.

Another venue to carry out the Millions is Australia. The Aussie Millions is the most popular series on this continent, and it regularly attracts about 900 players to the tournaments costing 10 000 Australian dollars. The absence of taxes and is the main advantage of this place.
Locations that host inexpensive poker series such as Malta and Dublin were proposed in the commentaries as well, but they are unlikely to collect such a guarantee.
