Breaking Down the 888poker XL Blizzard Schedule

XL Blizzard
Sharelines
  • Check out the full schedule of the upcoming #888poker XL Blizzard series.

The XL Blizzard series takes place online at 888poker between Jan. 18-28 and features 34 exciting tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $5 up to $2,100. Combined guarantees weigh in at almost $3 million.

Although there is a wide range of buy-ins during the XL Blizzard series so that as many 888poker players as possible can get involved, not everyone is going to be able to afford to play in all the events, so PokerNews has broken down the 34-tournament schedule into three different buy-in levels so you can plan when and what you will be playing.

There are three promotions running during XL Blizzard. The first gives you the chance to win $1 million in cash! Take down two XL Blizzard events and 888poker will give you $1,000. Triumph in three and $10,000 is all yours. Win four events and you’ll receive $100,000 and if you do the unthinkable and win at least five XL Blizzard events your bankroll will be boosted by one million dollars!

You can also compete in the Champion of Champions event. Earn points by playing in the XL Blizzard events and if you are one of the top 50 points earners you get a seat in the Champion of Champions tournament where some awesome prizes await.
