888poker Ups Mega Deep Guarantee to $500,000 on Nov. 27

mega deep 5 anniversary

It’s a special anniversary at 888poker and, as usual, that comes with benefits for 888 players.

The 888poker Mega Deep is a $215 weekly tournament and one of 888poker’s Sunday majors.

It also has a long tradition, considering how young online poker is. The Mega Deep was first played on January 1, 2012, so it’s now been played every Sunday for five years.

It usually comes with a guarantee of between $100,000 and $150,000, but on November 27 it will be raised to a cool half million.

"A Must-Play for Any Player"

Overall player numbers at 888poker are climbing, which was recently proven by the highly successful sixth edition of the Super XL series in September where the guarantees reached $4 million.

Just as in the Super XL series there will be plenty of big name players joining in this one, including 888 pros Dominik Nitsche and Chris Moorman.

"With the amazing structure allowing for great flexibility of play, the Mega Deep has always been one of my favourite tournaments of the week," said Moorman.

"Upping the prize pool to half a million dollars makes this a must-play for any aspiring or professional poker player."

Last weekend Malta-based player que_te_crio won the event for almost $25k, but on the last Sunday in November the first prize will be more than twice as much.

"The Best Structured MTT Across All Major Sites"

"I will certainly be looking to play this event," said Jonathan "jgjg3000" Gill, who back in 2015 made the final table of the Mega Deep an astounding three times in six weeks.

"The Mega Deep is a special tournament. Realistically it is what I believe to be the best structured MTT across all major sites, which I believe is partly the reason for my success in it.

"Weekly it attracts many players, whether online regulars or recs who have satellited in. It is hard to find a better weekly tournament."
