It's time to break out your bathing suits and bikinis and put on your poker face because the second stop of the 888Live tour is heading to Costa Brava, Spain, for four exciting days of poker, water sports, and entertaining nightlife from May 18-22.

The highlight of the beach-themed 888Live Costa Brava poker festival is the two-day $400 Main Event, coming complete with a $50,000 guarantee. This event will take place from May 20-21 at the Gran Casino Costa Brava. The tournament is a single-reentry affair and provides plenty of deep-stacked action. Players will start off with 25,000 in chips and play 30-minute blind levels.

For even more action, 888Live Local will also be hosting its series at the same casino May 21-22.

Among those to be in attendance as both a poker host and player will be one of the newest 888poker ambassadors, Kara Scott. Scott previously nailed down a final table at the 888Live Local at Aspers Casino in London, and she hopes to improve on her success in Costa Brava in May.

"I'll absolutely be playing the tournament," Scott shared with 888poker eMagazine. "I'm lucky that I'll be in Spain to host the event, but there should also be enough time for me to sit down at the tables and try my luck. Have you seen the trophy? I want it! After doing so well in London, I'm gunning to make 2/2 final tables as an 888 Ambassador. Hey, a girl can dream.”

The stop in Costa Brava is the second on the 888Live tour following the heels of the success of the ski-themed 888Live Austria. France's Eliot Hirn took down the opening 888Live Main Event of the season, outlasting a star-studded field which included 888poker ambassadors Sofia Lövgren and Dominik Nitsche, and Alec Torelli. Hirn took home the top prize of €8,610.

When not on the felt, players will be able to enjoy one of the best seasides located on one the Mediterranean's most beautiful coasts. There will be plenty of water activities available and a rich abundance of nightlife after the sun goes down.
