888poker LIVE Heads to England, Last Chance to Qualify for Spain

888poker’s rapidly expanding LIVE local series heads to Milton Keynes, England this weekend while players have one more chance to qualify for the Marbella, Spain event.

As more and more players jump on the LIVE train, 888poker is proving just how much potential there is in regional live poker tournaments with affordable buy-ins.

The Milton Keynes event is right around the corner for any interested players in the area.

There have already been four 888poker LIVE events since January and all of them have met enthusiastic feedback from the players.

888poker LIVE is returning to Great Britain after a successful tournament in London in late January.

The venue will be the Aspers Casino at Milton Keynes, which is just northwest of London. The casino prides itself on being “simply the best casino and leisure destination in MK”.

There’s a good chance the Milton Keynes event will actually be one of the smaller 888poker LIVE events (around 200 players) so anyone looking for a more intimate feel will definitely want to check it out.

The tournament will have two starting days on Friday (March 27) and Saturday (March 28), and will play down to a winner on Sunday.

The tournament features a guaranteed prize pool of £25,000 with a buy-in of only £220. There are still live satellites every evening at the venue.

However, you’ll also have the chance for a single rebuy per starting day and the late registration will be open for eight levels so there is plenty of time to buy in.

The starting stack is 25,000 so even latecomers will still have a good chance to make it to the second day.

Last Chance to Qualify for Picturesque Marbella

Fancy a bit of sun and beach fun? Here’s an idea.

The next action event by 888poker LIVE will be the “Swing into Action” event in Marbella in southern Spain.

Time to Swing into Action.

It’ll take place in the great Casino Marbella, where players will have a chance to enjoy the full glory of the Sun Coast while teeing off on some beautiful golf courses.

Yes, golf. It’s the featured activity, outside of poker, for Marbella and considering the wealth of golf courses it's pretty much the perfect location for it.

If you win one of the $2000 packages you’ll get to play, and additional golf lessons, all for free.

The complete event will run from April 8-12, with one day of golf and two days of poker. The main event is a €440 buy-in NLHE event with no less than $50,000 guaranteed!

Oh, and don’t miss the Farewell Party at the Aqwa Mist Club on Saturday night.

Sounds like a nice way to spend the weekend? Then hurry up, because the last direct online qualifier is this Sunday, the 29th, at 9:09 PM GMT. The buy-in is $160, but you can also satellite into it and the satellites are running all the time.

One $2000 package is guaranteed in each satellite. The prize package includes:

  • Four nights in the 4* H10 Plaza Hotel, breakfast included
  • $550/€440 buy-in to the main event
  • $500 travel expenses
  • Bounty freeroll ticket
  • Exclusive golf activities
  • 888Live Merchandise kit
  • Special prizes during the Main Event and the Bounty Freeroll
