Features of the series

888Poker wasn't the first poker room to announce a tournament series in the new year; however, they presented the players with a revamped festival under an already familiar brand:

From January 16 to 31, the XL Winter Series will take place at 888Poker, guaranteeing a record $2,500,000.

Such a boost in the guaranteed prize pool compared to 2022 ($2,000,000) was due to a change in the structure of the schedule: besides changing numbered events (28 instead of 44), it also includes more regular tournaments.

  • The buy-in range has noticeably increased: from $5.5 to $2,100, although most MTTs have entries of up to $11-$55
  • The spread in the prize pool is quite large: $5k to $500k. Numbered events feature guarantees $20k-$50k, and daily from $6k-$15k
  • There will be only four events with six-figure prizes:
    • $100k Opening for $109
    • $100k Super High Roller 6-max for $2,100
    • $200k Mystery Bounty 8-max for $160
    • $500,000 Main Event for $250

The main format of the series will be Mystery Bounty.
