888poker is also hosting a number of satellite events in April that have extremely low buy-ins in order to allow as many online poker players the opportunity to take part in the Super XL Series. One of those players who will take part will be 888poker pro Dominik Nitsche.
In a statement, Dominik Nitsche said “I will be playing on 888 a lot practicing and trying out a few new, different things I have been working on. I just heard there will be another XL series right before Vegas so that’s amazing news as it will give me a chance to get in some big tournaments before playing the $300,000 Super High Roller Bowl.”
888poker will roll out a similar structure to previous Super XL events and feature a mini, turbo and main version of each tournament in a number of different formats such as snap, multi-chance, six-max, eight-max, rebuy and knockout.
