It is fair to say that 888poker does not aim at competing with such giants as GGPoker and PokerStars in terms of tournament guarantees. We can assume that while PokerStars and GGPoker try to gain dominance in the mid-stakes and high-stakes poker market, 888poker tries to appeal to lower-stakes players. The new XL Autumn Series is a great example as it has quite a lot of cheap events.
