888poker’s popular 888Live tour heads to Barcelona May 11 and features more than a dozen events across 11 days, including a €500,000 guaranteed 888Live Barcelona Main Event. While the buy-ins are affordable, for the most part, it is possible to win your way into both the Opening Event and Main Event for a fraction of their cost via online and live satellites.

Online satellites for the €100,000 guaranteed Opening Event and the €500,000 guaranteed Main Event are running at 888poker right now.
The Opening Event runs from May 11-14 and costs €220 ($235) to enter. Freeroll satellites run every day at 888poker and these feed into $12 buy in satellites, which in turn award Opening Event entries worth $235.
Those players wanting to win their way into the €1,100 buy in Main Event can do so for as little as $0.10. These Step satellites eventually feed into a $30 satellite where at least one €1,100 seat is guaranteed to be won.
888poker understands that some poker players prefer to play satellite tournaments in a live setting so 888poker has added several satellites to the 888Live Barcelona schedule.
Head to the Casino Barcelona on May 11, May 12 and May 13 armed with €50 if you want to win one of 30 seats to the €100,000 guaranteed Opening Event, and on May 17, May 18 and May 19 to try and win one of 18 seats worth €1,100 each for only €110.
