888poker for the second time in time for its anniversary in 2022 (20 years since it opened) has decided to collect old tournaments from different years into one series and include them in the regular room grid. A minimum of $1,400,000 will be drawn in just 27 numbered XL Retro Series events, as well as an additional $300,000 in 3 daily events.
For the second time this year, poker room 888poker is offering its players the opportunity to play in tournaments that were part of the regular schedule in different years but have since been cancelled. Retro Week $888K GTD was entirely out of them in March, and a new festival will soon follow similar principles:
The XL Retro Collection is scheduled to run from Oct. 9-24, 2022. More than $1,400,000 in guaranteed prize money in the 27 numbered tournaments in which it has participated.
This series is unlike any indoor championships this year:
Also, in addition to the old tournaments, two more events in the now popular PKO format – Mystery Bounty (with guarantees of $33, $215 BI and $20 and $200,000) will start on October 16. The random payout will begin after the late registration period ends.
On September 25, 2022, 888poker will host a first-of-its-kind tournament. A one-hundred-thousandth guaranteed, nearly doubled up. Players made 1,887 entries for $109. The 89th-place player wins the $10,000 grand prize.
Schedule the full XL Vintage collection:
The Main Event will be a single multi-day event.
16 races, XL Retro #27 with a $500,000 buy-in – $250 Main Event will run from October 20-24. Day 2 starts at 10 p.m. Moscow time on the final day.
As you can see, there are three different types of structure on Day 1: increasing blinds every 3, 6 and 12 minutes. Starting stacks were 166.7 BB in all cases, and on the last day they were left by 14% of registered players, or all players remaining at the table after the 18th level.
The satellite freerolls for the main tournament (three games a day, 21 tickets guaranteed) started on September 30. Later there will be qualifiers with steps and real buy-ins.
