The 888poker LIVE festival will be heading to the Catalonian capital of Barcelona, Spain for 11 days of exciting poker action at the Casino Barcelona. The festival features plenty of tournaments and satellites with combined guarantees of €1 million on May 22 to June 3.
The first big event on the 888poker LIVE Barcelona schedule is the €220 Opening Event on May 23-26 featuring a healthy €150,000 guarantee. There are four opening flights in the tournament on May 23-25 with players starting off with 30,000 in chips and allowed to re-enter up to two times.

Surviving players will play down to a winner with 40-minute blind levels on May 26.
The next big event is the €2,200 High Roller on May 29-30. The tournament allows for unlimited re-entries during the late-registration period and boasts 45-minute blind levels throughout.
