We ended 2023 with a bang with the 888pokerLIVE Coventry Festival, which crushed the Main Event guarantee and delivered an entertaining player experience. As we bring in the new year, 888poker up the LIVE tournament action with our 888poker LIVE 2024 series schedule.
888poker LIVE focuses on the player and their enjoyment. We’ve carefully crafted each event to ensure everyone feels at home and welcome.
Join us in these excellent destinations for affordable buy-in tournaments. And if rubbing shoulders with poker personalities is your thing, our team of 888poker ambassadors will be at every event.
And, if you happen to be on the virtual rail, catch the live streaming of the Main Event feature tables, including special influencer SNGs on the 888pokerTV Twitch channel.
Our 2023 live tour smashed it, and we’re planning to do it all over again in 2024.
