    THIS WEEK: Feb 27th 2017

    UK’s “Tom38x” was this Sunday’s biggest winner, taking home an incredible $30,706! An unbelievable return on a mere $109 investment.

    A record breaking 1,818 players joined the Mega-Deep tournament for just $109 – less than half the regular entry buy-in!
    The huge number of entries smashed the guaranteed prize-pool which reached a whopping $181,800, generating a $30,000 1st prize.

    The popular Mega-deep Tournament offered a 20 minute blind level in a freeze-out structure, reminding us all how awesome “classic” poker is.

    Another tourney to look out for from yesterday was the High-Stakes Baby-Whale.
    A buy-in of just $320 allowed players to enter the tournament and compete for over $21,500!


    Sunday Sale Crocodile – The $80 buy-in was one serious investment for Germany’s xxmkayxx, who took home over $17,000!
    The enormous prize-pool was created from almost 1,500 players.
    The prizes were settled in HU, when “xxmkayxx” and “SMVD1” reached a deal, splitting the wealth.


    Sunday Challenge– A $50 entry was worth $17,761 for Russia’s “Crazy_Freak”.
    The popular tournament drew in 1,551 players who rebought a total of 502 times.

    Mini Mega-Deep– Close to 2,000 entries and rebuys were made, creating a staggering $38,980 prize-pool.
    When getting down to heads-up, we saw Canada’s “omgjefmonier” strike a deal with “klauniq”, which secured them both over $5,000.

    In fact, this is one genre that teaches newbies all about forming the different types of poker hands.

    If you haven't tried this poker genre, 888poker has an easy 8-Step poker rules guide to show you how to play Omaha.

  18. Welcome to 888poker’s Weekly Deal, with all the best news, results and insights from the past week.

    THIS WEEK: April 2nd 2017

    Classic poker:

    We saw an evening of classic poker last night, with close to no deals.

    Sweden was on top with “Trollkonst8” and “perrymejsen” taking down the two big GTD tournaments and cashing out with $28,882 and $29,116 each accordingly.

    PLUS, PSMO is just around the corner and the Swede’s are getting fired up!

    888poker Ambassador, Dominik Nitsche made his 3rd Final Fable within the last 2 weeks, finishing 8th in The Whale.
    A massive 787 players registered to the Mega Deep, helping to create a staggering $157,400 prize-pool which smashed the $130K GTD.
    With three Swedes reaching the final 10, it was hard not to see one of them take it down – “Trollkonst8” managed to finish above all.

    The Whale saw over 250 players investing in a $600 entry ticket, all gunning for that 1st place prize just shy of $30,000!

    One of the final 10 was our very own Dominik Nitsche who continues in good form a week after a close back to back Octopus, and showing he means business in the upcoming XL Inferno.

    When the dust settled it was Sweden at the top again(!) with “perrymejsen” beating Argentina’s “germaxii “, whilst “doctor877” finished in 3rd place.

    Sunday Crocodile

    Germany made it to the on top!

    It took 10 hours and 53 min for Germany’s “kabotajoe” to take down the tourney and win over $13,000 after a hard fought Final Table!

    It was “gingerspew” who finished as the runner up, blocking Germany’s “s4lb31p3st0” (3rd place) from closing Germany at spots 1 + 2.
    Sunday Lightning 6-Max + Sunday Breeze

    The popular 6-max format drew 270 players, who made 153 rebuys to create a $42,300 prize-pool, well surpassing this Sunday’s increased GTD of $30,000.

    Romania’s “V.BlomFan60” finished off 30 days of some unbelievable achievements by striking a deal with “kozirok_bel” for over $8,000 each! The Romanian ended this 30-day heater with close to $35,000 profit!

    702 players paid $55 entry ticket to kick off their Sunday with a Breeze.

    Mexico’s “pokerfan77” stood tall, taking down 1st place to add to his remarkable Sunday. On top of winning Breeze’s 1st place we saw “pokerfan77” also winning the $25K GTD. Tornado and finishing 3rd in the $15K GTD. Swordfish, taking home a prize of almost $15,000!
    Sunday Challenge 1R

    After 11 hours of play, Canada’s “edbtzuk” took home a whopping $17,392 for a $90 investment!

    Ukraine’s “777BMW777” and Norway’s “ShipGold” finished as runner-ups claiming $9,383 and $12,416 respectively.
    Turbo & Mini Mega Deep

    The Mini Mega-Deep drew 1,466 players who made 457 rebuys, creating a $40,260 prize-pool for a mere $22 investment!

    We could see three Brazilians within the top five, but it was “pokerkid92” who managed to come first earning a well deserved $6,844!

    In the Turbo version for the popular Mega-Deep, we saw “89rhino89” claiming the win and over $9,000!
    What to watch out for this week:
    Join 888poker Ambassador, Parker “tonkaaaa” Talbot in his Home-Game!

    The tournament will take place on upcoming Wednesday, 19:30 GMT.
    A mere $12 entry for fun-packed poker with the Twitch star!
