888poker Freezeout Series Underway through June 29

888poker Freezeout Series Underway through June 29

It seems that every online poker tournament these days offers rebuys or reentries. The move toward reentries has become much more common in recent years, and players now have a harder time than ever finding freezeout tournaments. Every player buys in once and busts or wins.

Ahhh, the good ol’ days.

888poker listened and developed a tournament series with those players in mind. The 888poker Freezeout Series offers 24 tournaments from June 14-29, complete with $665K in guarantees.

Freezeout Series Schedule

This new series began yesterday, Sunday, June 14. Technically, the Main Event began, as it offers so many flights that 888poker had to begin running those a week before the rest of the series gets underway. The actual first event of the Freezeout Series actually begins on June 21.

Those Main Event flights began yesterday and one flight is on the schedule each day through the rest of the series. Then, on Monday, June 29, all surviving players compete on the final day of action. (That Main Event offers a $200K guarantee.)

Of the 24 tournaments in the series, not one allows reentries. There are still guarantees on the prize pools, though, and it will all culminate in the aforementioned Main Event.

Without further ado…
