888poker Super XL Series offering $3m in May

Posted on by RTR Dennis

888poker have just announced that they’re running the Super XL Series again from May 14-22. And what’s really exciting is that the guaranteed prize pool has been bumped up from $2 million to $3 million!

The May edition of the Super XL Series will feature 40 tournaments, beginning with an $88 buy-in $88,888 Crazy 8 Super XL Kickoff event.

This tourney will feature the same structure as the 2016 WSOP Event #54 $888 Crazy Eights 8-Handed NLHE tournament. Additionally, whoever wins the Super XL Kickoff will earn a free seat to WSOP Event #54.

Super XL will give players of all bankrolls a chance to participate in the action because each event features a Main, Mini and Turbo version. You can also look forward to different formats such as 6-max, 8-max, rebuy, multi-chance, knockout and Snap (fast-fold variant).

Featured Super XL Series Tournaments

Some of the big tourneys to look out for include the Event #5 $250k Opening Multi Chance ($160 buy-in) and Event #7 $200k Whale ($600 buy-in) on May 15, and the Event #15 $400k High Roller ($2,100 buy-in) on May 17.

As always, the $1,050 Super XL Main Event will highlight the cyber festivities on May 22. Featuring a $1 million guaranteed prize pool, the Main Event gives skilled players plenty of time to strategize with 20,000 starting chips and 20-minute levels.

Good Practice for 2016 WSOP

Anybody who’s planning a trip to Vegas for this year’s WSOP can use the Super XL Series to gear up for the event. WSOP champ and 888poker pro Dominik Nitsche plans to do so, telling his sponsor, “I will be playing on 888 a lot practicing and trying out a few new, different things I have been working on. I just heard there will be another XL series right before Vegas so that’s amazing news as it will give me a chance to get in some big tournaments before playing the $300,000 Super High Roller Bowl.”

Super XL Series Satellites

Does the $1,050 Main Event sound a little above your bankroll? If so, don’t worry because 888poker will be running Super XL Series satellites for this tournament and others. Just check the 888 lobby and navigate to the satellites area to win your XL Series seats for cheap. And keep your eye on May 22, when the $215 buy-in Mega Satellite will award 50 Main Event seats.
