The calendar has turned, and with the start of a new year begins a whole new round of epic poker events. 888 poker’s first event of the year is less than a month away now, and it is looking like something that you won’t want to miss. The event, named “Snow Limit Poker”, is set to be a full three days of skiing and poker in the Alps of Austria. It will be held at one of the most magnificent ski resorts in the world, the Innsbruck Igis-Patscherkofel resort. The main event will be a $50,000 tournament with a $400 buy-in.
The best part of all, though, is that 888poker is holding an online tournament as well, with a prize package that includes a VIP ticket to the snow limit poker event.
