Following a successful year of online and live poker, 888poker has released a full schedule for its popular 888poker LIVE festivals across the upcoming 2023.
The operator’s LIVE tour was a big hit among European players in 2022, with live poker finally making a complete comeback and all the stops attracting great numbers and creating massive prize pools.
Next year’s schedule will be just as rich and packed as the one we saw in 2022, with 888poker planning five different festivals, each hosting several poker tournaments and non-poker events.
London, Madrid, Barcelona, Coventry, and Bucharest will be the host cities for 888poker LIVE festivals in 2023.
Besides the exciting Main Events scheduled for each stop, 888poker has also promised to feature the new Mystery Bounty format prominently across the tour because of massive interest among players.
These will be just the highlights of the 888poker LIVE tour in 2023, with a lot more action happening alongside. Let’s look at the five scheduled stops and expected dates.
888poker LIVE Madrid (13-23 January 2023)
Tournament players can experience the thrill of an 888poker LIVE festival as early as January 13, when the first stop of 2023 kicks off in the Spanish capital.
Casino Gran Via in Madrid will play host to 888poker LIVE Madrid 2023, with the Main Event offering a €300,000 guaranteed prize pool for a buy-in of just €888.
The Main Event will feature 50-minute levels on day one, which will escalate to 60 minutes on the final day, and players will have an opportunity for unlimited re-entries.
Satellites for 888poker LIVE Madrid are already running at 888poker, with less than a month left until the kickoff of the first LIVE stop of 2023.
888poker LIVE London (13-24 April 2023)
The 888poker LIVE festival will return to London’s legendary Grosvenor Victoria Casino (The Vic) as early as February 9 for a LIVE Weekend before the entire festival kicks off on April 13.
Once again, players will compete in a host of events with reasonable buy-ins and massive guaranteed prize pools, giving them plenty of reason to visit the UK capital.
If you have never played at the Vic before, the spring of 2023 could be the ideal time to do so and visit one of the most iconic venues where poker history has been made for decades.
888poker LIVE Barcelona (12-22 May 2023)
The end of spring will see players traveling back to Spain, but this time to the beautiful Catalonian capital of Barcelona, another epic poker venue.
Poker trips to Barcelona are typically something special for most players, as there is so much to do away from the tables that poker often becomes the secondary activity.
Whether you are looking for an exciting live poker festival or a nice vacation with some poker action on the side, the 888poker LIVE Barcelona festival in May has you covered.
888poker LIVE Bucharest (8-14 August 2023)
Amid the summer heat, 888poker will welcome players in the Romanian capital of Bucharest, a less frequented poker destination.
This could be your ideal opportunity to visit a city of incredible historical importance and beauty that you may otherwise miss on your travels.
888poker LIVE Bucharest will feature a robust schedule similar to the other stops, along with an opportunity to experience the culture, cuisine, and customs of Romania, the homeland of poker legend Daniel Negreanu.
888poker LIVE London (18-29 October 2023) ** Now RESCHEDULED to Coventry, UK running 20-29 October
The 888poker LIVE London stop that was scheduled for mid October, has now been rescheduled to take place in Coventry. The dates have also changed and the event will now run October 20 to 29.
