Every month 888 Poker holds The Whale, a tournament with a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool. They hold it on the fourth Sunday of every month, which means that the next $250K Whale tournament is coming up in just about a few days: this Sunday, September 22, 2013.
Notice that because September 1st was on a Sunday this year, there are actually five Sundays this month. So this is the time to secure your seat in the event.
888 Poker’s $250K The Whale takes place at 18:00 GMT this Sunday for a $530 direct buy-in. Registration is open now. Players start with a 10,000 chip starting stack and the blinds go up every 25 minutes.
There’s still time to win your seat in this Sunday’s The Whale tournament through 888 Poker’s step satellite tournament series.
Step 1 has a $0.09 + $0.01 buy-in, is a rebuy/add-on event, and takes place all day, every day, at each event awarding one seat into Step 2
