Qualify to the 888poker LIVE Barcelona for Just $0.01
After two successful events this year in London and Bucharest, the 888poker LIVE tour heads to the Catalonian capital of Barcelona at Casino Barcelona for 13 days of poker action from May 22 to June 3.
The 888poker LIVE Barcelona is one of the most popular stops of the year due to the fantastic weather, rich culture, and huge poker room. It doesn't hurt that the casino is located just a quick walk away from the beach.
888poker LIVE Barcelona Main Event Details
PokerNews will be on hand to cover the highlight of the festival, the 888poker LIVE Barcelona €1,100 Main Event with a huge €550,000 guarantee which will run May 30 to June 3.
The tournament is a deep-stacked affair with players starting off with 30,000 in chips and blinds increasing every 45 minutes during each of the three opening flights on May 30 to June 1. The structure is further enhanced with the use of a 30-second shot clock and the single big blind ante.
Players unlucky to bust can hop back into the action to try to find a bag at the end of the day with each flight allowing for unlimited reentries. Those bagging chips will enjoy a deeper structure with the tournament moving to one-hour blind levels for the final two days on June 2-3.
Last year's Main Event smashed its €500,000 guarantee when 709 entrants generated a €709,000 prize pool and there is little reason to believe this year will be any different. Romania's Adrian Costin Constantin was declared the official winner after agreeing to a heads-up deal with Spain's Joel Isla where both players collected a six-figure payout of €114,025 ($133,323).
In addition to the Main Event, there are many other enticing events on the schedule including the €220 Opening Event on May 23-26 with a €150,000 guarantee, the €2,200 High Roller on May 29-30 with a €150,000 guarantee, the €330 The Whale with a €45,000 guarantee on June 2, and the €220 Ladies Event with a €2,500 guarantee on June 2.
