888Poker Ambassadors are looking forward to the XL Eclipse

Without doubt, there will be a lot of big names in poker that will be competing for XL Eclipse titles during the series. These will include the 888Poker Ambassadors Chris Moorman, Dominik Nitsche and Martin Jacobson.

He added that this would be a great time zone for him since he will be able to go out in the morning for workouts and go out for dinner when the day ends. He pointed out that he usually travels with a monitor which makes it easy for him to play in more tables and that in the next couple of weeks will be practising to make sure that he is prepared for the series.
