888poker has announced that its LIVE series will make its next stop in Spain. The 888poker Live Festival Barcelona is set to run from May 12th to May 23rd. Players will have a chance to join the €1,100 Main Even running from May 19th to May 23rd. With this announcement, 888poker LIVE continues its resurgence. 

In order to brighten up the festival, 888poker decided to invite all of its ambassadors and Twitch streamers to the party. On top of that, the organizers will also invite some special guests to play poker such as Dan “Jungle Man” Cates, Maria Ho, and Michael Mizrachi. 

This festival marks the 20th anniversary of the 888 company, therefore it will include several special events. Online poker players are going to have numerous opportunities to participate in the action as well. Read on for more details and the full 888poker LIVE schedule. 

888poker LIVE Barcelona Highlights

As mentioned previously, the 888poker LIVE Barcelona will be headlined by the €1,100 Maun Event. Even though this tournament has a large buy-in, players have an opportunity to qualify for pennies via online satellites and qualifiers. 888poker also offers direct registration for a satellite for $109. Players that come out on top in the qualifiers, will be awarded a $2,200 package to 888poker LIVE Barcelona. The package is promised to include a $1,250 buy-in to the 888poker LIVE Barcelona Main Event, $550 for a three-night stay in Barcelona from May 19th to May 22nd, $400 for traveling, and an 888poker LIVE kit. 

Poker players in Barcelona will be offered four starting flights with tournaments featuring big blind antes and “shot clocks”. Spectators can watch the live stream of this four-day event on the 888poker official Twitch channel. 

Another tournament worth mentioning is the €5,300 High Roller. This event is probably going to attract quite a lot of interest among higher-stakes players. 

Barcelona will be a perfect place for a poker vacation. Located in the northeast region of Spain by the name Catalonia, Barcelona boasts several architectural masterpieces like the Sagrada Familia designed by Antonia Gaudi. This monumental attraction is one of the most popular UNESCO World Heritage Sites. On top of that, poker fans will be able to enjoy museums and a number of beautiful parks in the city. Not to mention plenty of nightlife, bars, and clubs to check out. Football fans can visit Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, which is home to one of the largest and richest clubs in the world FC Barcelona. 

As a reminder, Casino Barcelona has already hosted the 888poker LIVE festival in the past. In 2019, it was Italy’s Gabriele Rossi, who took home $123,121 for his Main Event win.
