The XL Inferno spring tournament series from 888poker is currently underway with a guaranteed prize pool of $1.4 million spread over 34 tournaments. The online series concludes on 26 May.
There is the usual mix of events with buy-ins starting at $5.50 and going up to $320 to appeal to players of all abilities. There will be three Main Events with all of their buy-ins significantly down on last year in a bid to make them accessible to all types of poker players. The $250 Main Event guarantees $500,000; the $33 Mini guarantees $50,000 and the $5.50 Micro comes with a guaranteed prize pool of $15,000.
If you are still wanting your fix of all things 888, you can catch up with the 888poker team on Poker After Dark this week.
Elsewhere 888poker is putting a squad together for the World Series of Poker. Chris Moorman, Kara Scott, Martin Jacobson, Dominik Nitsche, Vivian Saliba, Sofia Lovgren and Ana Marquez will make up the team that will also work with recreational players who have won their way into the Squad via the 888 Road to Vegas promotion.
There are qualifiers running every Sunday and satellites running daily for players wanting to win their way onto the Squad and join the team in Vegas.
