  • $150,000 is guaranteed to be won across 18 events during the 888poker ChampionChips Series.

888poker is setting out to show the poker community that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to win big in its poker tournaments by creating the ChampionChips series, which runs from July 27-30 and guarantees at least $150,000 in prizes.

Featuring 18 events with buy-ins starting at only $1, the 888poker ChampionChips guarantees $150,000, plus there is an extra $3,000 to be shared among the top 200 players of the series via the ChampionChips Winner’s Gallery.

The ChampionChips series kicks off at 4:30 p.m. GMT on July 23 with the first three events. The $10,000 Opening Ceremony 6-Max gets the series underway for only $5 and that is followed by a $12 buy-in tournament with a huge $25,000 guaranteed event before a $1,500 turbo tournament costing $1 brings the curtain down on the opening day’s proceedings.

Although all 18 events look to be solid value, the $50,000 guaranteed Main Event, which only costs $30 to buy into, looks like a must-play tournament. Satellites from only $0.50 can be found in the 888poker lobby now.
