“Taking back the game” is 888poker’s current slogan and they’re doing everything they can to make poker fun for the recreational player.
They’re not only taking the game back — they’re also bringing it back to the German capital.
You can now qualify on 888poker for the highly renowned World Poker Tour Deepstacks and the first joint venture will take place in early January in Berlin.
WPT Deepstacks Berlin, January 5-8
There hasn’t been an event of one of the big poker series in Berlin since the WSOPE in 2015. Thanks to this new cooperation, that’s going to change in 2018.
The WPT Deepstacks Tour is the WPT main tour’s little brother. It has lower buy-ins and is occasionally used to kick off larger festivals.
That will also be the case in Berlin where the WPT Deepstacks will directly be followed by the European Championship Main Event.
Dates: January 5-8; two starting days
Start times: Day 1A – 4 PM; Day 1B – 2 PM; Day 2 – 2 PM; Day 3 – 3 PM
Buy-in: €1,350 + €150
Qualify for 1c on 888poker
You can now win your seat for the WPT Deepstacks main event on 888poker and you can do so for just 1 cent.
888poker runs direct satellites every Monday and Thursday, both as Seat-only and full package satellites. Every full package has a value of $2,400.
The satellites cost $109 and $160, respectively, but you can use 888poker’s well-established steps system to get into them.
This is a six-step system starting at a 1 cent buy-in where you can work yourself up to getting tickets for higher buy-in online or live events.
