Will Big Fish return with Retro Week Series?
If you’re an 888poker lifer, you may remember the Big Fish tournaments which were very popular during their heyday. During Retro Week the $30,000 Big Fish returns on Sunday, March 20 with a $33 buy-in. There’s also a $20,000 Big Fish PKO tournament with a $33 buy-in on Friday, March 25.
If you’re looking for the high roller events with the $525 buy-in there are two, and they’re both called the $50,000 Whale. The first Whale is on the first day of the series on Sunday, March 20, while the second Whale closes out the series on Sunday, March 27. ( 888Poker Review )
If you’d prefer to go after the large guarantees on the Retro Week Series schedule, there are a pair of six-figure guarantees. The first six-figure guarantee is also on the opening day of the series, Sunday, March 10. It’s the $100,000 Sunday Challenge and it has a reasonable $90 buy-in.
The other six-figure guarantee is the Retro Week Series Main event. It is on the final day of the series on Sunday, March 27. The Main Event has a $300,000 guarantee and a $215 buy-in. If you can’t afford that there are plenty of cheaper ways to earn your way into the Main Even through satellite qualifiers.
