888Live Poker Series Moves On To Estonia
It is great news for poker players from around the world as the 888Live tournament series now moves on to Tallin, Estonia. This will be the third stop as the live tournament series makes its way around Europe. These events are hosted by 888Poker, who have taken control of creating, managing, and organizing their own events, rather than use a third party service to do the work for them; it has been working out very well.
888LIVE Events Operations Manager Mouhcine Jalili told PokerNews, “We have already held one in Austria called ‘Poker on Ice’ in January, and one in Marbella, Spain in April. In September we [are] in Tallinn for a third one – and in December it will be time for a Grand Finale that I can already promise you will be an event to remember.” They have taken a more open stance to organizing live tournaments due to the fact that the card game is synonymous with it now, especially with the big success other tournaments like the WSOP and WPT have had over the years.
This is not the only good news that 888Poker has to offer, as they continue to make vast improvements to welcome in new players, as well as keep the players they already have. This is why at their online poker room; they have decided to raise the Sunday guarantees. This means they will offer players the chance to win even more money than before during their Sunday tournaments. Here is a list of the Sunday events and the raise on their guaranteed prize pool.
|Tournament||Buy-In||Old Guarantee||New Guarantee||% Increase|
|The Sunday Challenge||$90||$75,000||$100,000||33.3%|
|The Mega Deep||$215||$100,000||$120,000||20%|
|The Turbo Mega Deep||$215||$40,000||$50,000||25%|
|The Sunday Breeze||$55||$20,000||$25,000||25%|
|The Sunday Lightning 6-Max||$109||$15,000||$20,000||33.3%|
These are the guaranteed prize pools for the events running in September, so be sure to stay up to date with any new tournaments that may occur in the following months. You can notice that players will now have chances to win more money than before, each week. This shows how 888Poker and 888Live is taking their players desires seriously. We would hope all poker rooms were this involved with their players.
