After a successful 2019 season, 888poker has announced the dates and locations for their 2020 888poker LIVE tour.
This year, 888poker will be making at least seven stops around the world including a return to popular poker spots in London, Bucharest, Sochi, and Barcelona. The tour will also return to Tallinn, Estonia for the first time since 2016 and kick off the entire tour by holding their first-ever Main Event in Madrid, Spain.
In addition to providing players unique poker experiences on their own tour, 888poker announced their continued sponsorships of some of the most popular poker series in the world. 888poker will be on hand as a partner with CNP Spain, The Battle of Malta in October and, of course, the 51st Annual World Series of Poker taking place this summer in Las Vegas.
First Leg Of The Tour
The action kicks off when 888poker travels to Madrid for the first time from January 23- February 3. 888poker is holding nothing back for their first stay at Spain’s Casino Gran Via by bringing a €1M GTD series with an €800,000 GTD Main Event and the promise of getting the opportunity to play alongside a host of their ambassadors. Expected to be on hand are 2014 WSOP Champion Martin Jacobson, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Chris Moorman, Vivian Saliba, Sofia Lovgren, Ana Marquez, Daria Feschenko, and Dominik Nitsche.
Literally two days after the Madrid stop is in the books, the team returns to the UK from February 5-9 for the first of their stops at the Aspers Casino in Stratford for the 888poker LIVE London Weekend.
From there, the tour returns to Bucharest from March 23-29 for their popular stop in Romania’s capital. Last year, local grinder Darius Neagoe picked up the first recorded cash of his career by taking down the Main Event for over $69,000 and a trip to Las Vegas to play in the World Series of Poker Main Event.
Barcelona then provides the backdrop for the tour’s fourth stop of the year as players enjoy the action on and off the felt from May 14-25 at 888poker LIVE Barcelona.
The Main Event
Then, in the middle of summer, 888poker plans to be on hand as a premier sponsor of the biggest event of the year, the 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event.
As a key sponsor, 888poker is one of the only place players can win a seat to the Main Event online. Not only is 888poker providing direct satellites and all-encompassing packages to the Main Event, but they are helping players win a seat to their own branded $888 Crazy Eights event at the WSOP.
A Strong Second Half
After players recover from the summer grind in Las Vegas, the 888poker LIVE tour continues with a return to Casino Sochi in Sochi, Russia from August 6-14.
Then, it’s a return to Tallinn from September 1-7. It will mark the first time 888poker has brought a Main Event to Estonia since 2016.
Right after Tallinn, in October, 888poker will once again gather their ambassadors and fight in one of the biggest live tournaments of the year, The Battle of Malta.
Finally, 888poker ends their year with the 888poker LIVE London Festival from November 16-29 on their home turf in London at the Aspers Casino in Stratford.
All of that action coincides with 888poker’s partnership with CNP Spain and their five live tour stops taking place all across Spain from February to November.
