The $888,000 guaranteed Retro Week series is almost upon us with 888poker ready and waiting to welcome thousands of poker players to its site for the week long festival. Retro Week runs from March 20 through to March 27, featuring 26 action and value-packed tournaments from yesteryear.

Four huge events kick off Retro Week in style, one of which gives you the chance to showcase your silky poker skills on the increasingly popular 888poker Twitch channel.

Log into your 888poker account at 4:00 p.m. GMT on March 20 if you want to get involved in Retro Week’s first event. It is a $33 buy-in Big Fish tournament, which comes with a $25,000 guaranteed prize pool. The tournament used to run regularly at 888poker and was part of their Fish & Chips series of MTTs.
