"Cant-Miss" Online Event

As this is the most important online series of the year for 888poker all the ambassadors will be at the tables competing.

"I'm very excited about this year's Super XL Series which in all likelihood will set records on 888poker," says German ace Dominik Nitsche.

"Very few online events are 'can't-miss' but the Super XL Series is definitely one of them. I'll most likely be playing in all the big events and I'm expecting big things in the Main Event, which is going to be one of the best tourneys ever."

Nitsche won't be the only 888 pro trying to snatch victory away from you.

Look out also for Swedish poker phenom Sofia LövgrenJackie Glazier from Down Under, the Brazilian trio Bruno KawautiNicolau Villa-Lobos and Bruno Politano and Japanese player and coach Akira Ohyama.
