888Live plans a huge schedule for 2018 with events right across the globe including London, Sao Paulo, Berlin and Las Vegas.




MainEventTravel is again the Official Travel Partner for 88Live and will be looking after the travel needs for hundreds of 888Live qualifiers worldwide.


The new season kicks off tomorrow with the 888poker LIVE 2018 Kick-off Event at Aspers Casino. The £440 buy-in Main Event comes with a £120,000 guarantee and begins next Thursday with the first of four start flights at 6pm. Flight 2 is on Friday followed by two start flights on Saturday, February 10. The final day is on February 11. 888Live also plans to host a bunch of local events at Aspers in June, August, and November.

Also taking place this month is 888Live Bucharest, which will run at the Marriot Hotel from February 28 through to March 4.

The stop also includes a single day €88 buy-in Ladies Event, where the winner will receive a package for 888Live Barcelona which is taking place at Casino Barcelona from May 23 to June 4.

Over the summer, 888Live – and MainEventTravel – will be back in Las Vegas once again to join forces with the World Series of Poker for both the 888Live WSOP Crazy Eights and the 888Live WSOP Main Event.
