888poker Releases 2020 LIVE Schedule
888poker has finally announced the schedule of its LIVE events for 2020.
Players wanting to take a shot at tournaments with massive guarantees should now include Tallinn, Sochi, Bucharest, London and Madrid in their 2020 travel itinerary as these cities will host many of the 888poker LIVE events.
888poker also remains as partner of the prestigious World Series of Poker (WSOP), so expect plenty of WSOP-related events to be hosted by the site.
This year, the 888poker LIVE tour will for the first time, drop by Madrid, Spain. The festival will take place at the Casino Gran Via in the Spanish capital on January 23 to February 3, offering €1 million in guarantees. The main highlight of the festival will be the 888poker LIVE Madrid Main Event which is set to give away €800,000 in prize money.
The online poker operator is also giving players the opportunity to take part in the event for a fraction of the price through satellites and feeder tournaments which are currently running on the site. Buy-ins start at $0.01.
The tour’s next stop will be at the Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford City in London on February 5-9. The festival is expected to attract massive fields as it runs simultaneously with the 2020 London Affiliate Conference (LAC), one of the biggest conventions in the gaming industry.
After London, the tour then heads over to Bucharest on March 23-29, providing exciting poker action for seven days. Romanians will get the chance to follow in the footsteps of Darius Neagoe, who topped a record field of 505 entrants to capture the Main Event for €62,000, alongside a 2019 WSOP Main Event package worth $12,600.
From there, the tour returns to Barcelona, Spain on May 14-25, with the action taking place at the Casino Barcelona. The venue is located right on the beach, so players will have some great time basking under the sun away from the tables.
Between June and July, 888poker will be busy sponsoring the hugely popular Crazy Eights tournament, and will also host a series of qualifiers for the 2020 WSOP Main Event at the Rio in Las Vegas.
The following month, 888poker will be in Sochi Russia to host a major festival running on August 6-14 at Casino Sochi. This year also marks the tour’s return to Tallinn after three years. It will be one of the huge poker events scheduled to take place in the Estonian capital this year, and will run on September 1-7.
Once again, 888poker will be sponsoring the Battle of Malta which will take place at Casino Malta in October. The event will build on its massive success last year, with the Main Event generating €2,258,645 in total prize pool, more than doubling its initial €1,000,000 guarantee. The tour’s last stop will be at Aspers Casino in London on November 16-29.
