Pumped up guarantees. Five main events ranging from $5 buy-in to $1k. Free tickets to daily qualifiers. A full 2017 WSOP Main Event prize package.
If you’re looking for a reason to play a few online poker tournaments over the next 11 days, 888poker has a lot of them.
The 7th edition of the 888poker Super XL tournament series starts today with a massive schedule catering to all bankrolls and with higher payouts than ever before.
The total guarantee for the 63-event series has been raised another full million to $5 million and $1.5 million will be the minimum total payout for the Super XL main event alone.
Events for All Bankrolls
With 888poker a mecca for recreational players there’s no pricing out of the action. To accommodate for lower buy-in players many events will have an added version at only about 1/10th of the buy-in.
The Main Event, for example, is available in five different versions:
Event #58, $1050 Super XL Main Event, $1,500,000 guaranteed
Event #59, $160 Super XL Mini Main Event, $200,000 guaranteed
Event #60, $5 Micro Main Event, $15,000 guaranteed
Event #62, $109 Turbo Main Event, $30,000 guaranteed
Event #63, $75 Super Turbo Main Event, $15,000 guaranteed
All of the main events run on January 29 which is the last day of the series.
Other highlights of the series include the $2,100 Super High Roller with $350,000 guaranteed, the $300,000 Guaranteed “Tune Up” and the $250,000 guaranteed Super XL edition of The Whale.

Nitsche, Moorman On the Hunt
While rec players abound in most events you might run into some stiff competition in the major events as 888poker Team pros Dominik Nitsche and Chris Moorman (aka the most successful online tournament player of all time) will definitely be playing.
“I’m excited that 888poker is pumping up the guarantees and putting more money into online poker,” said Moorman. “It’s awesome to have multiple series throughout the year that gets everyone on the virtual felts for a couple of weeks.
“The Super XL series is at the top of my list of must play poker events. Now I just need to win one!”
“Without a doubt,” Nitsche adds, “the highlight of the schedule is going to be the last Sunday. Not just because of the Main Event, but also because of all the side events we got going on around then.
“It’s by far the best day and certainly one you can’t miss if you are serious poker player.”
Nitsche also said there’s a good chance he’ll be live streaming his High Roller play on Twitch.tv
