  7. 888poker is ‘Taking Back the Game’

    Online poker giant reveals its future ambitions for 2017 and beyond.

    The world’s 2nd largest online poker brand, 888poker, has launched a long term strategy under the bold new banner of ‘Taking Back the Game’, accompanied by a brand new TV campaign which will air on 11/05/2017.

    As a huge influencer in a fast-evolving market, the 888poker site is celebrated for its on-going commitment to supporting and enriching the experience of its players.

    888poker was the first to recognize a desire for change and a growing sense of frustration from players due to the direction in which the industry is developing; uneven matches, slow games and disproportionate VIP bonuses. The online poker room have now made it their mission to change this, so their players can enjoy a poker game worth playing.

    888poker is, essentially, ‘Taking back the Game’ on behalf of the players.
    Working towards this goal over the past year, 888poker has already launched a number of initiatives aimed at rekindling online poker players’ enthusiasm and love of the game, including:

    · The launch of a unique loyalty program which offers its recreational players a more beneficial structure and rewards system.
    · Exciting and original promotions which offer all players, no matter their skill level the chance to win more cash and prizes. For example, this year’s hugely popular ‘Treasure Quest’ which required players to complete daily challenges in order to reach the end of an online game board.
    · Exceptional, innovative and quick-paced poker variants to enhance players’ game experience. The extremely popular ‘BLAST’ poker is just one example of this – and players can expect some other exciting developments in this area very soon!
    · As exclusive sponsors of the World Series of Poker, the largest online poker event in the world, for the third year running, 888poker has made the WSOP more accessible to its players. This year 888poker will send over 250 players to Vegas through its online satellite tournaments and promotions, which offer buy-ins starting from just 1 cent.

    Several other initiatives and projects are also expected to be announced in the coming months.



    SVP Head of B2C at 888Holdings, Itai Pazner, spoke enthusiastically about the poker site’s ground-breaking new approach:
    “For many years, 888poker has been celebrated as a platform which welcomes members from all different levels of experience and ability; a place to call home for recreational and professional players alike.
    ‘Taking back the game’ is about going one step further for our players; it’s about moving forwards, not backwards, and shaping the future of online poker so that we give our players a better experience.
    We have a clear and positive picture of how we see 888poker developing over the next few years, both online and offline, and I personally can’t wait to see 888poker transform and revolutionize the way online poker is played!”

    A TV, VOD, pre-roll and digital display campaign will launch this new strategy. #Buzzkills, a campaign calling out all these negative elements about online poker and highlighting the changes that 888poker has made to create a more enjoyable game for a more diverse community of players.

    Four 30 second ads channel the frustrations players feel as ‘What a Buzzkill’ and reveal 888poker’s solutions – less waiting, more playing; fairer games; better chance of winning and exciting promotions for everyone, encapsulated in the endline: ‘888poker. Taking Back the Game’.

    888poker will continue to develop its exciting new initiatives in the coming year, whilst introducing a number of additional promotions and projects to further its ambitions for 2017. Watch this space!

  8. Poker Photography Comes to Life with ‘fabfotos’

    Nothing fans the flames on a memory of a great sporting event like a photograph.
    When we close our eyes to remember an event that rocked our very emotional foundation to the core it’s the photograph that is seared into our neural pathways.

    Who can forget the photograph taken by Neil Leifer of a young Muhammad Ali, standing over a defeated Sonny Liston, with that look of arrogance that would help him become the most talked about fighter in the history of the sport?

    The emotional intensity of the famous shot of a defiant Jesse Owens, standing on the podium of the 1936 Olympics in the midst of Nazi salutes and an on looking Adolf Hitler angered that a black man beat the unbeatable Aryan race.

    Sport is nothing without vision.
    For vision to last an eternity, we need someone standing in the right spot, at the right time, to take the right shot.

    The poker world is no different.

  17. In 2017, a crack poker unit is sent to Las Vegas by an online poker site for plays they did commit.
    These men and women promptly defy the odds to the make the final table. This is “The 8-Team”.

    Big changes are in store for the 2017 World Series of Poker, which will once again be sponsored by 888poker.
    Yesterday, WSOP officials revealed both a new television deal and the retirement of the Main Event November Nine, instead opting to play it out in July.
    Following in their footsteps of big announcements, we’re happy to reveal “The 8-Team”.

    We’ve managed to build five amazing teams, each from a different country and featuring a team captain, wing man, and a qualifier.
    The teams – which are comprised of the UK, Germany, Canada, Brazil and Sweden – will all participate in the 2017 WSOP Main Event.
    The qualifier that does the best (determined by who reaches the highest spot in the tournament out of the 5 tram qualifiers) will win a 2018 WSOP ME Package.

    For the second year in a row, 888poker will not only serve as an official sponsor of the tournament, but we will see one of our own, 888poker Ambassador Dominik Nitsche, test his skills against some of the best poker players in the world.

    Kara Scott, Nitsche’s fellow 888poker Ambassador and hostess of the SHRB, recently spoke to Nitsche about this year’s event.

    “I’m very excited to play; it’s a lot of fun,” Nitsche told Scott. “Basically, it’s just a home game of all our friends.
    Everyone knows each other. The atmosphere is probably going to be quite relaxed at first, but I can imagine it getting quite tense at the end simply because it’s a $300,000 buy-in, and that’s a lot of money.”

    “zinkAA” and Anton “anteen” Bertilsson both won WSOP packages.
    Find out all the details in our Champion of Champions recap.

    Cristian “progree69” Sampaoli Wins XL Inferno Champion of Champions
    By: Chad Holloway

    On Wednesday, the XL Inferno Championships, which was comprised of 197 events over 14 days, came to an end with the prestigious “Champion of Champions.”
    The tournament was restricted to those who won titles during the series, and 110 of them ended up participating.

    Those who finished 6th through 40th received a $55 888poker ticket, and some of the players who banked a ticket were Robin “Inho” Ylitalo (40th), “PulledPorker” (32nd), “Xandee1991” (25th), “Mindcruhers” (16th), and “PuntSonPunt” (6th).

    Meanwhile, Brazilians “F1oba” and “jxangai” each received a $600 ticket for finishing in fifth and fourth place respectively.
    That ensured the final three were headed to the 2017 World Series of Poker, but the only question was what events would they be playing.

    For Sweden’s Anton “anteen” Bertilsson who won Event #36 $50,000 High Roller for $116,974, the answer was Event #60 $888 Crazy Eights as was awarded a side event package after finishing in third place.
    Likewise, runner-up “zinkAA,” who hails from Ukraine and won Event #91 $30,000 Sunday Lightning, received a buy-in to the same tournament but also a $1,050 Main Event qualifier seat.

    As for the Champion of Champions, after six hours and 21 minutes, the title went to Argentina’s Cristian “progree69” Sampaoli, who you might recall topped a field of 543 players to win the XL Inferno Event #178 $30.000 Saturday Challenge for $5,720.

    Sampaoli actually got off to a quick start in the XL Inferno when he placed 24th for $538.50 in the first event.
    He went on to notch seven total cashes including sixth in Event #46 $20,000 Monsoon for $1,638 and fourth in Event #57 $20,000 Crocodile for $3,687.75.
    Four days later, he actually final tabled the Crocodile again, finishing eighth for $895.50.

    In the live realm, the Argentinean has just four cashes totaling $15,235.
    The first two came in his home country back in 2014 and 2015, with the better of the two being $8,493 for placing 11th in the 2015 Circuito Argentino de Poker Grand Final Main Event in Rosario.
    In 2016, he attended the WSOP International Circuit in Punta del Este, Uruguay and cashed twice including a runner-up finish in Event #2 $400 No-Limit Hold’em Turbo for $3,450.

    Not only did Sampaoli earn the bragging rights that come with being deemed the 888poker XL Inferno Champion of Champions, he was awarded a seat into the 2017 WSOP Main Event, which could potentially lead to millions of dollars.
    Final Table Results
    1 Cristian “progree69” Sampaoli (Argentina) WSOP ME Package
    2 “zinkAA” (Ukraine) Crazy 8 Package & $1,050 ME Qualifier ticket
    3 Anton “anteen” Bertilsson (Sweden) Crazy 8 WSOP Side Event Package
    4 “jxangai” (Brazil) $600 ticket
    5 Fábio “F1oba” Maritan (Brazil) $600 ticket
    6 “PuntSonPunt” (N/A) $55 ticket
    7 “mikazika986” (Moldova) $55 ticket
    8 “pvss10” (Brazil) $55 ticket
    9 “1LevelAbove” (Sweden) $55 ticket

    The XL Inferno finished strong when the Main Event surpassed its advertised $1.5 million guarantee by creating a $1.755 million prize pool, the largest prize pool ever on 888poker.
    All told, 121,000 players participated in 197 events spread over two weeks.
    During that time, we put up $7.5 million in guarantees, but thanks to such a strong turnout, $11,207,274.44 in prize pools were actually up for grabs during the series.

    For those looking ahead to 888poker’s next big poker series, mark your calendar for September, which is when the sky will be the limit with the XL Eclipse Championship. Then, in January 2018, there will be no time to chill as we’ll be hosting our XL Blizzard Championship.

    WP Sofia!
    Ukraine’s “Sambist1990” was one of 888poker’s biggest winners, winning this week’s Mega-Deep for a staggering $20,000, an incredible return on a $215 investment.
    530 players signed up for the $100,000 GTD. tournament, each paying $215 for the chance of winning BIG in 888poker’s Mega-deep.

    Within the top 20, we saw familiar faces such as German’s “bossamitsch1” and Canada’s “PulledPorker”, but it was players from the Ukraine and UK who finished up top.
    Our top 2 bagged together close to $35,000!


    The special edition of the Whale (with a $1,050 entry and new structure) provided some intense action with 121 players participating in the high-stakes tourney.

    We saw our 888poker ambassador Sofia Lovgren managing to get a strong opening to her upcoming Vegas run, finishing 2nd and cashing out with almost $27,000.
    It was Swiss player “fishermen90” who finished as this week’s top dog after taking home a whopping $38,640!

    Sweden came out on top, once again!
    After repetitive strong finishes by Swede players in 888poker’s Crocodile, we saw “KURDEdersim” continue this blue and yellow heater finishing up top.

    Sunday Lightning 6-Max

    174 players, who made 91 rebuys, entered the rapid 6-max tournament.
    At 6th place we saw Russia’s online poker pro “MAMOHT_T”.

    When the dust settled, it was Croatia’s “Karabaja7” who managed to stand strong and capture 1st place alongside a worthy $6,360.
    Sunday Challenge 1R

    After close to 11 hours of play we saw “Benettinho” manage to overcome this Sunday’s Challenge.

    Turbo & Mini Mega Deep

    In one of 888poker’s closing tourneys for Sunday, The Turbo Mega-deep,
    we saw Austria’s “Oduvanchik15” taking the fast-paced poker tourney for a solid $9,589!


    The Mini Mega-Deep ended the Sunday strong for our Brazilians with four (!) Brazilian players making it to our top 10!

    At the end we saw 2 of those Brazilians- “raphaelvgc” and “vonBaranow” make it to the top 2 and closing on a deal to split the wealth, each cashing in for over $5,500!

    The duo managed to sweep this amazing amount for a mere $22 investment.

  28. Hello,

    Tournaments starting with a $25,000 buy-in are increasing in popularity - and with them a new hierarchy of stars, the likes of which we haven't seen since the heady days of televised high stakes cash games.

    Lee Davy and 888poker collected data from a decade of high-rollers, running from January 2017 to December 2016.

    There have been 238 tournaments globally with buy-ins of $25,000 or higher between the data points described, averaging 24 events per year.
    But the increase in events has risen dramatically in the past two years, with an average of 62 events per year, an 88% increase since Jan 2007.

  29. Hello,

    On Friday night, the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada was rocking as 888poker Ambassador Chris Moorman, the most decorated tournament player in online poker history, won his first WSOP Gold Bracelet.

    The win brought Moorman’s lifetime live earnings up to more than $5.1 million, although that doesn’t take into account over $14M he’s won playing online.

    After years of success at the WSOP, all of us here at 888poker were thrilled to see Chris grasp that coveted Gold Bracelet at last.
    Well done sir!
