888poker Celebrates 20th Anniversary with Busy LIVE Madrid Festival


888poker is heading to the Spanish capital city of Madrid as part of the online poker site's 20th anniversary celebrations. 888LIVE Madrid takes place at the Casino Gran Madrid in Torrelodones from November 10-20, and everything points towards it being a massive hit with everyone that jets off to Spain.

The Madrid stop marks the second time 888LIVE has called off in Spain, following the successful 888LIVE Barcelona festival in May. The Main Event there was a €1,100 buy-in affair that drew in 334 entrants. Italian Sandro Hauser came out on top and returned home with €56,800 for his efforts.

888 dropped anchor in Madrid in February 2020, and the Main Event was huge. It cost €888 in 2020, and some 1,067 players exchanged that sum for the chance to become a poker champion. Marco Biavaschi of Italy emerged victoriously with a monster-sized €150,000 top prize.
