  • Time to book your ticket. The schedule for the 888Live Barcelona Festival is up.

With a total guaranteed prize pool over €700,000, 888Live heads to its next destination, Gran Casino de Barcelona, for 12 days of poker at the 888Live Barcelona Festival.

The festival, which runs May 11 through May 22, comes just after the completion of the 888Live Kings Festival in Rozvadov.

Cate Hall is expected to attend along with William Kassouf, Michael Mizrachi and 888poker Ambassadors Bruno "Foster" Politano, Kara Scott, Dominik Nitsche, Bruno Kawauti, Nicolau Villa Lobos, Sofia Lovgren and Natalie Hof.

888poker is offering qualifiers to the Main Event and the Opening event with a $30 buy-in and a $12 buy-in, respectively. Players can also win their way into the festival in satellite tournaments, with buy-ins as low as $0.01.

Since prior to the festival's start in October 2016, the average live prize pool for a Main Event was $55,412, according to 888poker. Now, since the festival kicked off with 888Live Festival in London with a $250,000 guaranteed pool, 888Live has significantly grown to ensure at least $500,000 in this May festival in Barcelona.

In the latest festival in Rozvadov, Catalin Pop won the 888Live Main Event, granting him a seat in the Barcelona tournament. He said he hopes to walk away with the title, but he also has advice for other hopefuls.

"Have patience, be aggressive, and don't be afraid to bust," he told 888poker.
