Highlights from 888poker Live Barcelona

The €1,100 Main Event allows players to get in on the action for pennies via online satellites and qualifiers. Direct registration for a satellite is also available for $109.

Qualifier winners score a $2,200 package to 888poker LIVE Barcelona. The package includes:

  • $1,250 buy-in to the 888poker LIVE Barcelona Main Event
  • $550 for three nights’ accommodation from May 19-22
  • $400 travel money paid into the winner’s player account
  • a 888poker LIVE kit

Players in Barcelona will find four starting flights and the tournament features big blind antes and “shot clocks.” 888 will stream the four-day event on the site’s official Twitch channel.

Beyond the Main Event, a €5,300 High Roller is also on the schedule and should attract interest among higher stakes players.

What to expect in Barcelona

Barcelona is located in the northeast region of Spain called Catalonia, a great place for a poker vacation. The city boasts renowned structures like the Sagrada Família. Designed by famed Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, the building is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The city also features museums and beautifully manicured city parks. There’s also plenty of nightlife, bars, and clubs to keep players entertained.

For sports fans, FC Barcelona also offers a long sporting tradition. The club is one of the largest and richest in the world.

Casino Barcelona has also hosted 888poker LIVE in the past. In 2019, Italy’s Gabriele Rossi walked away with the Main Event prize of €110,000 ($123,121) and the winner’s trophy.

Here’s a look at the complete schedule.
