Main Event Satellite With 40 Tickets Guaranteed
The Festival Online Main Event is a slightly more expensive tournament with a $215 buy-in, but luckily 888poker offers several qualifiers with a much lower buy-in. The biggest of these tournaments starts today at 21:00 CEST. The tournament is called Main Event Feeder and guarantees 40 tickets to the Main Event and has a buy-in of just $22. The event is designed to not take too long. It has a turbo structure and allows re-entries only during the first hour.
