The much-anticipated 888poker tournament series, the XL Eclipse is back from 12-22 September – and we are more than excited! Players can take advantage of any, some or all of the 34 events, boasting an overall $1.445 million prize pool.

The first tournament, the $109 buy-in Opening Event $50K GTD, kicks off on 12 September at 18:00 GMT. As is the tradition of the XL Series, there are Mini/Micro ($16.50 buy-in) and Late ($55 buy-in) versions on the same day.

The Crowning Glory of the XL Eclipse Series

The jewel in the crown of the series, though, is the $500K guaranteed Main Event. That happens on the last day of the series, 22 September, with a very affordable $250 buy-in.

It’s backed up by the $50K GTD Mini Main Event with an even more price-conscious $33 buy-in followed up with the Micro Main Event and its minuscule $5.50 buy-in.


Here’s your best opportunity to play in a series with huge guarantees and buy-ins that you can afford, with great structures!
