888poker XL Inferno

The XL Inferno series takes place at 888poker from May 10-20 and there are 34 events scheduled during this time. More than $2.8 million will be awarded by the time the curtain comes down on the festival and there is a tournament for everyone with buy-ins from $5 up to $2,600.

888poker has tried to make the XL Inferno series accessible to as many of its players as possible by creating a schedule with a wide range of buy-in levels. The tables below should be more useful to you than a full schedule because we have broken down the XL Inferno schedule into three buy-in categories, which could help you manage your bankroll and make it easier to find events that you would like to take a shot at.
