Kicking off with a first ever trip to Madrid, Spain, 888 Live has scheduled its series of events for the year, including a 2020 WSOP Main Event package guaranteed for each 888 Live Festival Main Event winner courtesy of 888poker, who return as a sponsor for the 2020 World Series of Poker.
The first stop in Madrid runs from 23 January to 3 February at the Casino Gran Via, with an €800,000 guaranteed, €888 buy-in main event starting on 30 January.
That’s followed by the 888 Live London Weekend from 5-9 February, held to coincide with the 2020 London Affiliate Conference (LAC).
The action takes place at the Aspers Casino in Stratford, where players will be treated to a wide array of tournaments, including the much-anticipated main event.
Then it’s on to Bucharest from 23-29 March, followed by Barcelona from 14-25 May.
The World Series of Poker Main Event runs from 1-14 July and is sponsored for the sixth year in a row by 888poker.
Next stop is Sochi from 6-14 August, with Tallinn from 1-7 September and then the Battle of Malta festival in October, which is sponsored again by 888poker.
One of the biggest live tournaments of the poker season, outside of Vegas, the Battle of Malta boasted a massive €1,000,000 guaranteed main event in 2019 and that figure was smashed with an impressive 2,691 players and 4,657 entries building a gigantic prize pool of €2,258,645.
The 888 Live London Festival brings the series to a close at Aspers Casino in Stratford from 16-29 November.
In addition to the 888 Live events in 2020, 888poker is also continuing its partnership with the Circuito Nacional De Poker (CNP) for five local stops in Spain at Valencia from 17-23 February, Malaga 20-26 April, Sevilla 15-21 June, Alicante 7-13 September and Madrid 13-23 November.
