888poker’s Super XL Returns with $5 Million in Guarantees

The seventh edition of 888poker’s Super XL Series kicks off on 9 January, running until the 31 January. With $5,000,000 up for grabs – yes, count those zeros – players have a lot to be excited about.

888poker will host 63 events including a Main, Mini and Turbo version of each tournament.

Among the highlights are the $100K GTD Super XL Opening Event with a $109 buy-in, the $15K GTD Turbo Crazy 8, featuring a $55 buy-in and the $350K GTD: $2,100 High Roller, carrying a $2,100 price tag.

But, the piece de resistance is the $1,500,000 Main Event with a buy-in of $1,050.

Super XL Series VII Highlights

The series starts on 19 January with the $100,000 GTD Opening event featuring a $109 buy-in.

Super XL Series VI put up big numbers in this event last year – attracting 1,603 runners creating a prize pool of $351,000, including re-buys. This number easily surpassed the $300,000 guarantee.

On Sunday, 22 January, the biggest day for online poker tournaments, the 888poker Whale tournament will get a fresh coat of paint. The guarantee will be bumped up to $250,000 GTD with the $600 buy-in staying intact. The Sunday Challenge also gets a boost with a $100,000 guarantee for a $90 buy-in.

But, of course, everyone will be looking forward to the event happening on the following Sunday, 29 January – the much-anticipated Main Event. With a $1,050 buy-in and a $1,500,000 guarantee, you can bet that players will be packing into this event like sardines. 888poker ambassador’s Dominik Nitsche and Chris Moorman have already signed up with other big names more than likely finding their way to this poker player-friendly event.
