  • 40 Events, $4m GTD in Sept. Super XL Series on 888poker

40 Events, $4m GTD in Sept. Super XL Series on 888poker

Nine days. 40 events. At least $4 million in pay-outs. Some of the best poker players in the world.

888poker’s largest tournament series is back from Sept 17-25 and it will be its biggest series yet.

This will be the sixth edition of the 888poker Super XL Series and for the first time the main event has a $1.5m guaranteed prize pool.

Something for Every Style

40 events with buy-ins from $5 for the Mini Turbo Snap event to $2,100 for the High Roller event -- that’s the range you’re looking at.

Most of the events will be available in three versions – regular, mini, and turbo – so there’s something for every playing style and bankroll size.

Does the name “Crazy 8s” sound familiar? There’ll also be a tournament in the series that follows the concept and structure of WSOP Event # 54.

That was called the $888 Crazy Eights 8-handed No Limit Hold’em event and it drew one of the largest player fields of the summer – 6,761 players. It was sensationally won by a nail studio owner from Ohio.

For the Super XL Series the “Crazy 8” will come in two versions - an $8.80 and an $88 buy-in – and will be the opener of the series. Further highlights:

  • $250k Guaranteed “Whale”
  • $75k Guaranteed 6-Max
  • $200k Guaranteed Mega Deep

There will also be several tournaments with starting times that suit American players more than Europeans. Look for the Americas Events. Check below for the complete schedule.

Nitsche, Moorman Ready to Go

Because of the steadily growing success of the series 888poker will host its flagship series three times within a year for the first time. XL series IV ran in January and XL Series V took place in May.

In Chris Moorman and Dominik Nitsche 888poker now has two of the most renowned poker players of the world in their pro team and both were fast to respond to the good news.

Nitsche, who is German but now based in Edinburgh, has fond memories of the last XL series as he won the Mini Main Event for over $36k.

"888 did a great job of listening to the players," he says. "There is clearly a lot of demand for more mid-to-high stakes tournament series on the Internet, especially during times that are a bit quiet for live poker like last May.

"I'm sure this XL Series will be the best yet and I can't wait to make a deep run in a big event and possibly stream it on Twitch."

"I am very excited to be playing every event but if I had to pick a favourite it would have to be the $2,100 High Roller followed by the Main Event. I just think it's a great series scheduled at the perfect time. A lot of people will be at home and will have a chance to compete for big prizes. The satellite system is also great as it gives a lot of lower stakes players a chance at big money."

"I can't wait to play the upcoming 888poker Super XL Series," adds Moorman. "There is a great selection of tournaments every day with great structures and a wide variety of tournament types to keep it fresh."

Satellites are already running everyday on 888poker and you can not only qualify for the main event but also for the opening events.

Check the lobby for more satellites and register. The Mini Opening event already has over 330 players.
