Skiing in Austria; golfing in Marbella; wine-tasting in Tallinn.
Every year 888poker spices up its 888Live events with a day of additional "off the felt" activities for its online qualifiers.
Those above were just a few of the excursions enjoyed last year by recreational players from around the continent.
At the upcoming stop on the Costa Brava in Spain in May, it’s all about the sea.
And you could win an exclusive $1,700 prize package with 888poker and PokerListings for a fun-filled weekend of poker and water sports.

The PokerListings Shortcut
You can qualify for all 888poker events through the 888 steps system. The lowest buy-in in these is just 1c but of course it’s a long road to make it all the way into the direct qualifier and then the actual event.
If you want a shortcut, here’s your ticket.
Create an 888poker account via PokerListings, deposit a minimum of $30 before April 20 and you’ll be eligible to play in the Pokerlistings Exclusive 888Live Costa Brava giveaway.
The winner of this qualifier gets a full $1,700 prize package for 888Live Costa Brava consisting of the $400 buy-in, four nights at the hotel plus $450 for travel costs.
If you come second or third there’ll be a consolation prize of $200 and $100, respectively.
