888poker has announced that it will be running a week-long Summer ChampionChips tournament series, with 18 different events all based on athletic competitions.
In the light of the Olympic Games in Rio, 888poker’s tournament series will run from the 14th till the 21st August, offering buy-ins ranging from merely $1 to $55 for the high roller event, as well as a $50,000 guaranteed Main Event on the 21st August, with a buy-in of only $30.
The Summer ChampionChips will include a lucrative leaderboard which will award prizes to whoever makes the top 200 during the series. If a player tops everyone else on the leaderboard by the end of the series, they will take home an impressive $1,000.
Only points from the 18 Final Tournaments will be calculated in the Summer ChampionChips leaderboard, and all points are calculated and updated automatically at the end of each tournament.
The series offers a bit of everything, from boxing, wrestling and weightlifting to synchronised swimming, trampoline, hurdles, long distance, and more.
Players who wish to get a head start in the tournament can do so by playing in 888’s Free Summer ChampionChips Qualifier Tourneys, which began on the 6th August and will be running until the 13th August.
888casino will also be exhibiting at Malta’s biggest iGaming summit of the year, SiGMA16. If you’re interested in coming to watch 888casino along with the many other exhibitors in November, click here to register today.
