For players looking for a higher buy-in to test their skills, the €2,200 buy-in €100,000 guaranteed two-day High Roller runs right before the start of the Main Event with late registration and unlimited re-entry available all the way up until the start of Day 2.

Finally, the 888Live Main Event caps off the series, starting on Thursday, May 18. The €1,100 buy in €500,000 guaranteed tournament carries three starting flights and wraps up with a live streamed final table on May 22.

Satellites for the full schedule are currently running on 888poker.com for all players looking to qualify for what will be a fantastic series at a discounted rate.

Along with the packed schedule filled with massive guarantees, the 888poker roster will be out in force. Some of the players scheduled to attend include Natalie Hof, Sofia Lövgren, former PocketFives #1 Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman, Dominik Nitsche, and 888’s newest team member, Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot.

While CasinoBarcelona does not have a hotel directly on its property, there are many hotels in the immediate area to book accommodations including Pullman Barcelona Skipper, Hotel SB Icaria Barcelona, and Hotel Miramar Barcelona.

There are few cities in the entire world that love poker more than Barcelona and this series should be nothing short of another smashing hit for the 888Live Series.
