The 2019 XL Eclipse on 888poker is less than a week away! From September 12-22, the festival will feature 34 events offering up more than $1.4 million in guaranteed prize pools. There will be traditional no-limit Hold’em as well as 6-max, 8-max, Deep Stack, and the popular Progressive Knock Out (PKO) variant.

The XL Eclipse will culminate in a $250 Main Event that offers a $500K GTD. Last year, Roman “Romeopro33” Romanovskiy topped a 709-entry field to win that tournament for $187,500.

This year’s XL Eclipse offers a wide range of buy-ins from as low as $5.50 all the way up to $320 for Event #17: $100,000 High Roller. While not everyone has the bankroll to fire the bigger buy-ins, the great thing about any XL schedule is that it allows for plenty of play even on a limited budget.

For instance, if you wanted to play all XL Eclipse tournaments with a $33 buy-in or less – and there are 17 of them on the schedule – it’d cost you just $353.30 to fire them all!

Take away the five $33 buy-in tournaments, and that means you can play all 12 of the $16.50 buy-in or lower tourneys for the low price of $188.30!

Must-Play Low Buy-In Events

Two low buy-in tournaments you don’t want to miss are the $16.50 buy-in Event #11: $50,000 Mini Tune Up on Sunday, September 15 at 7 p.m. and the $33 buy-in Event #33: $50,000 Mini Main Event on Sunday, September 22 at 6:30 p.m. Of all the lower buy-in tournaments, these two offer the biggest guarantee at $50,000 apiece!

All the other tournaments offer guarantees ranging from $10,000-$20,000, so still plenty of value. Speaking of which, Event #12: $10,000 Micro Tune Up on Sunday, September 15 at 7:30 p.m. costs just $5.50 to enter – the smallest buy-in of all the 2019 XL Eclipse tournaments – and boasts a $10k GTD. Last year, that tournament drew 1,916 entries and saw Albania’s “thejoker841” turn his small investment into a $2,370 payday!

Likewise, on Sunday, September 22 at 7 p.m. the $5.50 buy-in Event #34: $15,000 Micro Main Event will take place. Last year’s Micro Main Event had a $33 buy-in and still attracted 1,363 entries. Now with the cost of entry being a fraction of that, you can safely assume the turnout is going to be much larger.
