Importance of IPO and 888poker Online Series

The Italian Poker Open has run for 31 live events. The first one was held in February 2011 at Casino Campione (Italy) and the last in San Marino in January 2020. The 31 series have attracted a whopping 44,136 total entries with a total of €22,074,300 distributed overall prize pools.

Andrea Rocci, CEO of EMS, and owner of PkLiveEvents website, commented:

“Due to the current state of affairs, we had to give up two especially important IPO live events. We are deeply sorry for not being able to offer our players tournaments. However, the circumstances have provided us with a perfect opportunity to allow players to enjoy playing poker during these challenging times via a great online platform such as 888poker.it.”

He continued, “We never stopped working, trying to propose an alternative. We have chosen an online platform that reflects our idea of always aiming for the best with a live poker brand that has made poker history in Italy.

“For this reason, the choice could only be one of the largest online poker rooms in the world, 888poker.it."
