Major poker gaming is on its way to 888poker this April. The online poker platform has teamed up with WPTDeepStacks to provide three separate festivals to players located around the world. The global platform, Iberia and Italy platforms will all provide access to the action.
From April 18-26, players will be able to compete for over $3 million in total prize money. The WPTDeepStacks London will feature 16 events and provide the bulk of prize money with over $2 million on offer.
Details of the Festivals
The WPTDeepStacks will take place in several regions, giving players from around the world a chance to play in the many festival events. The London festival will take place on the global platform. The WPTDeepStacks Iberia will be open to players in Portugal and Spain. With the WPTDeepStacks Italy, the event is of course, open to players in that country.
The Iberia series will offer over €400,000 in prize money. The Italy series will have €350,000 spread across its many events. Due to the location of the global client, more players will have a shot at competing, which required the need for a much larger prize pool.
Highlights of the London Series
The London seirs will provide players with a chance to compete in events with buy-ins as low as $16.50. On the high end, buy-ins grow to $2,100. Guarantees are quite large with the biggest being $1 million. The Main Event features this big prize total with players able to buy-in directly for $1,050.
The tournament will have 11 opening flights. These flights will take place on March 28, April 4 & 11. They will also be set for each day from April 18-25. Players will compete with 20-minute blind structures. All players who survive from Day 1 will move on to the final day of the competition on April 26.
The by-in to the Main Event is quite large and many poker players cannot afford it. To compensate, the online poker platform is providing satellites and feeder tournaments. These options start at just one penny, making it affordable for everyone.
There is also a way to earn a seat at no cost. Each day, 888poker is providing a no-ticket freeroll. Players who take part in this event can then win tickets to satellites and feeder events. The site plans on giving away over $200,000 in free tickets via the freerolls.
