A very good series for the players of this poker room and i liked to play in a few smaller tournaments. In the past i did this thing and i finished in the money, but i haven't advanced too much. The prizes are beautiful and the battle is strong but it's worth a try.

Hey CALICUL, in 2019 Romania and Argentina had an Inferno tournament´s prize! who knows if this year we can make one for each one? Only to keep the tradition...hahaha This kind of tournament is good for my skill. Once I make an ITM in one similar of it. I wait to see the satellites of the main tourney, and how many steps you have to makes to win a ticket. Maybe easy...

To be honest, i don't know anything about these awards received by our countries. I have several hobbies and i didn't pay attention to these things. This year we can achieve something beautiful in any game but for that we will have to play insistently.

Very nice series of tourneys ,coming back for once more on 888poker . Good opportunities to make money , also I can see many ways to get cheap on these tourneys . You can play 1 cent or 2.20$ subsatellites , or the 22$ satellite to get the seat very cheap for the tourney . Also with qualifiers tourneys or depositors freerolls you can get a seat for thse tourneys , exremely cheap , you can go for a big payday only with pennies Smile Well done 888poker Smile

I have to seriously think in start to play some cheaps or free satellites, because my loved freerolls have starting to disappear! First Winamax complete remove it of his main lobby. After it 888poker start to reduce the awards. Bankroll Mob annulled his daily 888poker freeroll. Now, Grey Snow remove three of their five daily tournament...It´s a really sad stage!
