The Super XL Series is returning September 17-25 right here on 888poker!

For the 6th Edition of the Super XL Series, we're upping the ante by offering $4,000,000 in guaranteed prize pools, up a million from May's series and double that from January's Super XL Series IV. In addition, for the first time ever, the Main Event will feature a $1.5 million guaranteed prize pool!

Once again 40 different events are on the schedule, with each offering a Main, Mini and Turbo version of each tournament.

"I can't wait to play the upcoming 888poker Super XL Series," says Chris Moorman, the most accomplished tournament player in online poker history. "There is a great selection of tournaments every day with great structures and a wide variety of tournament types to keep it fresh. I'm hoping I can take one down as the newest 888poker ambassador. "

The series will kick off on Saturday, September 17 at 18:00 GMT with Event #1: $100,000 Crazy 8 Super XL Kickoff, an event with the same structure and concept as one of the summer's most popular tournaments, the 2016 World Series of Poker's Event #54: $888 Crazy Eights 8-Handed No-Limit Hold'em.

Other highlights throughout the week include a $2,100 buy-in, $500,000 guarantee High Roller Event; $215 buy-in, $100,000 GTD Quarterback Event; and $160 buy-in, $75,000 GTD 6-Max Event. Then, on Sunday, September 25, the series will culminate with the headliner $1,050 buy-in Main Event. Traditionally that tournament has boasted a $1 million guarantee, but we're so confident this will be the biggest and best one yet that we've upped it to $1.5 million!

In addition, there will be Mini, Micro, Turbo and Super Turbo Main Events offering a combined $210,000 in guaranteed prize pools!

"I am very excited to be playing every event but if I had to pick a favorite it would have to be the $2,100 High Roller followed by the Main Event," says 888poker Ambassador Dominik Nitsche. "I just think it's a great series scheduled at the perfect time. In my opinion scheduling is the most important factor for any online tournament series. For a lot of other players and myself, there is just not very much to play in September so the XL Series fits in very nicely. A lot of people will be at home and will have a chance to compete for big prizes. The satellite system is also great as it gives a lot of lower stakes players a chance at big money."

Back in January, the fourth edition of the 888poker Super XL Series covered all guarantees by an average of 210%, while the $1.2 million Main Event prize pool ended up being the highest MTT prize pool ever offered on 888poker. Finland's "jnevanli" defeated UK's "carmen.1957" to win the title after striking a heads-up deal.

May's Super XL Series V -- the first-ever to run in the Spring -- was an even bigger hit with 1,268 players participating in the Main Event, which created a $1.268 million prize pool. Sweden's "Gr33nApples" took home $183,869 after a three-way deal with "BOLAGET.NU" and "Vocaaas," who secured $159,691.28 and $150,832.46 respectively. 

"888 did a great job of listening to the players," adds Nitsche, who actually won May's Event #37: Mini Main Event for $36,541.50. "There is clearly a lot of demand for more mid-to-high stakes tournament series on the Internet, especially during times that are a bit quiet for live poker like last May. I'm sure this XL Series will be the best yet and I can't wait to make a deep run in a big event and possibly stream it on Twitch."

Daily qualifiers for the Super XL series are running now. Here's what you can expect for each day of the week:

Mondays -- Win entry to $1.5M Main Event on 9/25 + $750 prize pool for runners-up

Tuesdays – Win entry to $50,000 Mini Opening Event on 9/18 or Entry to $15,000 Micro Main Event on 9/25

Wednesdays – Win entry to $1.5M Main Event on 9/25 + $750 prize pool for runners-up.

Thursdays – Win entry to $300,000 Opening Event on 9/18

Fridays – Win entry to $1.5M Main Event on 9/25 + $750 prize pool for runners-up or entry to $150,000 Mini Main Event on 9/25

Saturdays – Win entry to $1.5M Main Event on 9/25 + $750 prize pool for runners-up

Sundays – Win entry to $1.5M Main Event on 9/25 + $750 prize pool for runners-up

The latest Super XL Series is sure to draw some of the biggest names in the game including Moorman and Nitsche, as well as fellow Ambassadors Bruno Politano, Bruno Kawauti, Akira Ohyama, Dominik Nitsche, Sofia Lövgren, and Kara Scott.

"I think the growth of the Super XL Series shows the demand there is for poker," says Moorman. "People want to play big events for big money online. I'm so glad 888poker is helping to fulfill this."
