$1,5M GTD XL Spring Series at 888Poker

Author: Vargoso Published: 17.05.22

888Poker announced the second seasonal tournament this year: XL Spring Series; like the winter festival, it has the same total guarantee for one and a half million dollars but fewer events. In this article, we will study all the details.

$1,5M GTD XL Spring Series at 888Poker

Spring Series

In 2022, 888Poker again decided to hold the spring series on the border of two seasons, and its second half of the schedule will be on "summer."

From May 22 to June 7, 888Poker will guarantee $1,500,000 across 37 XL Spring Series events.

Curiously, compared to the same event last year, nominally, the guarantee increased by a third, but at the same time, the average prize pool per tournament remained the same (about $40k), while the average buy-in doubled (from $64.5 to $133).

This is, of course, not surprising after 888Poker left Russia and lost part of their MTT audience. They have also considered the seasonal decline in traffic to avoid overlays.

Another notable change was the addition of two more tournaments (besides the main event) with a six-figure prize pool:

  1. XL Spring #01: $120,000 Opening Event for $109. Last year its guarantee was 2.4 less at $55
  2. XL Spring #17: $120,000 Tuen Up on May 30 for $109

Main Event

XL Spring Series Main Event 2022

There will be only one tournament with this name this year:

XL Spring #37 – $500,000 Main Event for $250 will be held from June 2 to 6. It features ten starting flights.

Hence, the tournament remained the same, but they made it multi-day. Each Day 1 has the following structure:

  • Starting stack: 10,000 chips (166.7 BB)
  • Up to 3 re-entries
  • 60 minutes late registration
  • The blinds grow every 12 minutes
  • The game ends after level 18 or if 14% of the registered players are left at the tables

Satellites to the main have already started. So far, there is one tournament available in the lobby for $15, guaranteeing two tickets (there are also steps from 1 cent). By tradition, freerolls with $250 tickets should be added later.
