888poker's 888live Series Kicks Off on Friday

Though 888poker is generally not known as a sponsor of major live poker events, the site does in fact dabble in live poker every now and then, mostly through its 888live Series, which hosts a number of interesting and challenging events in various attractive locations world over. The 2016 edition of the Series kicks off today, Friday, February 5, 2016, in Innsbruck, Austria. The Innsbruck stop, hosted by the Casino Innsbruck, will culminate in a Main Event which features a $400 buy-in and a $50k guarantee. Last year, this same Main Event turned out to be a major success: no fewer than 115 players put up the buy-in, leaving the €40k guarantee in the dust. The eventual winner, Thorsten Facius, pocketed a $15k top prize. This year, organizers are expecting still more players to show up, which means the prize-pool will be bigger as well.
Register an 888poker account now and use their online qualifiers to make your way into one of the 2016 888live Series Main Events.

The lineup of celebrities for the tournament is rather impressive as well. The host will be Tatjana Pasalic, and players like Sofia Lovgren and Dominik Nitsche will be at the tables. The location of the poker tournament is obviously nothing to scoff at either and everyone - even those who bust out early - are guaranteed to have fun.
Before the green felt battles get going, the 888live crew will make sure their guests partake in a great skiing/snowboarding experience at the Ski resort Innsbruck Igls. In the wake of the first event, players will be able to socialize at the Blue Chip Club, where drinks will be free.
In addition to the Main Event, there will be a $5k Special Bounty Freeroll as well, meant as a sort of consolation tournament for those who bust out of the Main Event.
