1. Hello,

    The 888poker-sponsored 2017 World Series of Poker (WSOP) is nearing the halfway point, and it won’t be long until the $10,000 buy-in Main Event is upon us.
    We previously announced our “The 8-Team” promotion, which will see five different teams compete in the WSOP Main Event.

    Each team, which is comprised of a captain, wingman, and a qualifier, represents a different country -- UK, Germany, Canada, Brazil and Sweden.
    Whichever qualifier who performs the best, meaning whoever goes deepest in the tournament, will not only win a $12,500-prize package into the 2018 WSOP ME, but also the pride that comes with representing their country on a world-wide stage.

    Captains and wingmen, who will serve as advisors for the qualifiers, have been revealed, and you can read more about them here.
    The online qualifiers for each team will be determined by June 27th.

  2. Hello,

    Online Poker Giant introduces Shot Clock to 888Live Festivals
    888poker has announced that it will implement a Shot Clock during its 888Live Festivals, starting with its upcoming 888Live London Festival at Aspers Casino, running October 4th -16th.
    The online poker room is extremely excited to launch the game changing feature, which is due to be included in future 888Live events.

    The introduction of the Shot Clock is in line with 888poker’s new strategy and tagline to ‘take back the game’ for its players, as it prevents the ‘buzzkill’ of slow waiting times and encourages a more fast paced and exciting game environment.
    To start with, the Shot Clock will be implemented in two events during the London Festival – the Main Event and the High Roller Event.

    SVP Head of B2C at 888Holdings, Itai Pazner, spoke enthusiastically about the bold new feature:
    “We believe that implementing Shot Clocks in our 888Live Festivals, is one more step towards us improving our games through cutting waiting times and creating a more even-handed poker experience.”

    Russia’s “EvnomiYa” wins over $35,000 at 888poker’s The Whale.

    Parker “888tonkaaaa” Talbot makes a top 3 appearance at the Sunday Challenge.

    Ukraine’s “YsoSerious7” and Argentina’s “Dejavu.turn” were 2 of of 888poker’s biggest winners, chopping this week’s Mega-Deep for $17,884 & $15,115,
    an incredible return for both on a $215 investment.
    The Whale & Mega-Deep

    441 players signed up for the $100,000 GTD. Mega-deep tournament, each paying $215 for the chance of winning BIG.

    Within the top 20, we saw familiar faces such as Brazil’s “keybr” and Argentina’s “sonmonedass” not managing to make it to the top 8 and leaving the spot for “YsoSerious7” and “Dejavu.turn” to claim the massive 1st and 2nd place prizes.


    The special edition of the Whale continues to be extremely successful at providing us with unbelievable action, with 107 players participating and rebuying 34 times, in 888poker’s high-stakes Sunday tourney.

    We saw 4 (!) Swedes making it to the top 11 but it was Russia’s “EvnomiYa” who managed to prevail claiming 1st place for a staggering $35,250!
    Sunday Crocodile

    The mini High-stakes tourney provided great action poker. It took “Satchless” 8 hours and 45 minutes to beat 196 players to claim 1st place and an incredible $6,450.

    “Satchless” managed to overcome UK’s “HinduKrush”, one of the most interesting players at 888poker with 2 previous wins in the same tournament, this time settling in for 5th place.
    Sunday Breeze

    446 players opened their Sunday with a Breeze, joining the $55 dollar entry tourney.
    3 tough German players made it to the final table, but only 1 of them managed to take the 1st place prize.

    It was “Kalle1968” who managed to secure 1st place and a breezy Sunday!
    Sunday Challenge 1R

    After close to 11 hours of play we saw “iBustYa888” manage to overcome this Sunday’s Challenge.
    He went up against 470 players, who made a total of 656 entries (each worth $90) to take home 1st place and $12,000!

    Our very own 888poker ambassador Parker “888tonkaaaa” Tallbot made a very impressive run, finishing at a very respectable 3rd place. WP Tonka!!
    Turbo & Mini Mega Deep

    In one of 888poker’s closing tourneys for Sunday, The Turbo Mega-deep,
    we saw Denmark’s “Burgerfrans” taking the fast-paced poker tourney for a solid $8,600!


    The Mini Mega-Deep saw a familiar face in 9th place, as Ukraine’s “YSoSerious7” unbelievably made it to both the Mega-Deep and the Mini Mega-Deep final tables.

    At the end we saw “GDigital14” and “tim” make it to the top 2 and closing on a deal to split the wealth, each cashing in for over $5,000!

    The duo managed to sweep this amazing amount for a mere $22 buy-in.

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

    THIS WEEK: July 2, 2017


    Mega Dozen 4th year Anniversary

    Yesterday, we ran a special version of our most popular low buy-in Sunday tournament – “The Mega Dozen Celebration” – to mark the Mega Dozen’s four-year anniversary.

    The $12 buy-in tournament usually features a $25,000 guarantee, but we doubled it for the special edition.

    That was smashed when 6,263 entrants (2,651 rebuys) took to the felt and created a nearly $100,000 prize pool! After 11 hours and 11 minutes, Romania’s “BehindSpace” finished as the last player standing to capture a $11,853 first-place prize.

    If you recall, back in May, “BehindSpace” finished third out of 873 players in the XL Inferno #35 $20,000 Monsoon for $4,234.
    “DuduPa1986” Wins Mini Mega Deep

    Meanwhile, the $22 buy-in $30,000 Mini Mega Deep attracted 1,262 runners (564 rebuys) and saw Canada’s “DuduPa1986” receive a nice return on investment by winning a $6,208 prize.

    Back in May, “DuduPa1986” finished runner-up in the XL Inferno #89 $15,000 Tornado for $3,694, which was actually more than the $3,559 winner “Toilet_Po8L” received thanks to a heads-up deal.

    “DuduPa1986” also finished eighth in the $320 buy-in $80,000 Baby Whale for $2,637.
    Japanese Pro Akira “Clutch_Hero” Ohyama Claims 2 Titles

    The $109 buy-in $20,000 Sunday Lightning 6-Max drew 167 players and surpassed the guarantee by creating a $24,600 prize pool. It took Japan’s Akira “Clutch_Hero” Ohyama eight hours and 19 minutes to claim the title and $5,904 first-place prize.

    Amazingly, he’d go on to notch an even bigger score when he topped a field of 203 players to win the $320 buy-in $80,000 Baby Whale for $18,898.50!

    Back in 2015, Ohyama has a big year. First, he was name an 888poker Ambassador in May, and then six months later hit $2 million in career online MTT winnings.

    When it comes to Japanese online poker players, they don’t get much better than Ohyama.
    Emil “Ejsenhoven1” Ohlsson Wins Sunday Breeze

    The latest $55 buy-in $20,000 Sunday Breeze attracted 493 players and created a $24,650 prize pool.
    That was distributed to the top 63 players including “tcavallin” (27th for $147), who was chosen as the qualifier to join Parker “tonkaaaap” Talbot and Griffin Benger on Team Canada in our “The 8-Team” promotion at the 2017 World Series of Poker.

    Emil “Ejsenhoven1” Ohlsson defeated “Sarkus89” in heads-up play to take down the $4,683 top prize.
    Ohlsson’s last win on 888poker came back on October 27 when he won the $55 buy-in $12,000 Monsoon for $2,941.
    The “icebearrr” Roars at Mega-Deep

    Argentina’s “FacundoG19” claimed a “Fish ‘N’ Chips Series” title on Sunday when he came out on top of a 1,006-player field to win the $30 buy-in $25,000 Sunday Deep-stack Swordfish for $4,979.
    “FacundoG19” Claims Title for Argentina

    Argentina’s “FacundoG19” claimed a “Fish ‘N’ Chips Series” title on Sunday when he came out on top of a 1,006-player field to win the $30 buy-in $25,000 Sunday
    Deep-stack Swordfish for $4,979.
    What to watch out for:


    The “Champion-Chips” micro series, which will feature buy-ins ranging from $1-$50, is right around the corner!
    For the second year in a row, 18 events from July 23-30 will offer $150,000 in guaranteed prizes.

The top 12 spots were paid, with “root4deuces” and Jack “lrdvoldemort” O’Neill missed out on the final table by finishing 12th and 11th respectively, both for $3,025.

    Making an appearance at the final table was “jnevanli,” who finished in eighth place for $4,235. If that name sounds familiar it’s probably because you remember him as the winner of the 888 Super XL Series VI Main Event for $182,635.

    In the end, Brazil’s Mathias “joao_mathias” Baumgarten emerged as champion to win $33,275. The win comes just two months after the Brazilian topped a field of 1,108 players to win the XL Inferno Event #49: $35,000 Wednesday Challenge for $8,642.
    Germans Battle It Out in Mega Deep

    The July 9 edition of the $215 buy-in $80,000 Mega Deep saw 409 players take to the virtual felt, and after just shy of 13 hours Germany’s “CllsDntMttr” defeated fellow countryman “aryL86” in heads-up play to win $15,697.

    Others to cash the event were “popsnpoker” (4th for $6,544), “FL1PM4ST3R” (9th for $1,357.88), and “Fukuruku” (31st for $490.80).

    A Trio of Brits in Mini Mega Deep

    As for the $22 buy-in Mini Mega Deep, the $30,000 guarantee was surpassed when 1,247 players accounted for 574 rebuys to create a $36,420 prize pool. The final table contained three players from the UK, and one of them, “JBHInfinity,” walked away with the title and $6,191grand prize.

    The other two UK players were “dyetii” and “Roden.H,” who finished third and fifth for $3,456 and $1,802 respectively.
    “ImJ01” Takes Down Sunday Lightning

    The $109 buy-in $20,000 Sunday Lightning 6-Max attracted 162 players who accounted for 82 rebuys, which created a $24,400 prize pool. That was distributed to the top 18 players including “alexxabest” (15th for $317.20), “DeepInCidurr” (8th for $793), and “Sarkus89” (4th for $2,074).

    After 10 hours and six minutes, “ImJ01” defeated “HuliVamNadaA” in heads-up play to take down the $6,344 top prize. Back on October 16 of last year, “ImJ01” bested a field of 251 players to win the $20,000 Sunday Tornado for $7,648.
    Former WSOP Main Event Champ Cashes Sunday Breeze

    The $55 buy-in $20,000 Sunday Breeze drew 481 runners, which surpassed the advertised guarantee by creating a $24,050 prize pool. Among those to finish in the top 63 and earn a payday were 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Pius “AMasta89” Heinz (58th for $105.82), “heyfreddy” (16th for $192.40), and “GoFighTer” (10th for $288.60).

    It took a little more than eight hours, but eventually Norway’s “naien123” beat “greenseer1” to lay claim to the $1,875.90 first-place prize.

  11. Hello everyone,

    Just moments before we crown our next WSOP Main Event Champion, we wanted to remind you there’s always a losing side…
    Check out this fascinating piece by Michael Kaplan, with his thoughts on finishing in 2nd place.

    “When I interviewed poker icon Stu Ungar, just months before his motel-room death in 1998, he told me that he had no tolerance for second place.
    He likened anything but first place, in just about anything, to being synonymous with losing and finishing at the bottom.

    “People tell me that I should be a good loser,” he explained, enjoying a brief moment of clarity before he sunk back into the narcotic haze that dogged him for much of his later life.
    “But if you’re a good loser, you’re still a loser. It’s not something that I can ever take.” “

    The $55 buy-in, $20,000 guarantee Monsoon attracted 487 players and created a $24,350 prize pool. Some of the 63 players to cash were “Mr.Fonzi” (39th for 121.75), “T.NAPOLEAO” (15th for $243.50), Anton “B.Mitchell” Wigg (5th for $1,339.25), and “vitola99” (4th for $1,899.30).

    After seven hours and 21 minutes, the tournament came down to Germany’s “durrrrchfall” and Russia’s “Nikas3274,” and it was the latter who prevailed to claim a $4,626 prize. It marked the second time in less than two months that “Nikas3274” won the Monsoon, having done so on June 8 by topping a field of 299 players for $2,673.
    “gioriz” Wins Turbo Mega Deep

    The $215 buy-in Turbo Mega Deep attracted 138 players who accounted for 54 rebuys, which surpassed the $30K GTD by creating a $38,400 prize pool. Among the 18 players to get paid were Sweden’s Robin “Inho” Ylitalo (17th for $787.20), “Annyjar” (11th for $864), “floatmasta” (7th for $1,536), and Anton “B.Mitchell” Wigg (4th for $3,456), who was at his second major final table of the day.

    Given it was a turbo event, it took “gioriz”, just over four hours to take down the $8,832 first-place prize.
    “kiskutya23” Rides a Lightning Bolt

    On Sunday, the $109 buy-in Sunday Lightning drew 168 players who accounted for 108 rebuys. That surpassed the advertised $20,000 guarantee by creating a $27,600 prize pool, which was distributed among the top 24 finishers. Among those to cash were XL Inferno Event #155 champ “Fukuruku” (19th for 262.20), “MacGyver888” (11th for $483), and “prebzzz” (5th for $1,794).

    After seven hours and 43 minutes of play, “kiskutya23” bested “GramNaKartke” in heads-up play to capture a top prize of $4,567.80. It was a bit of redemption, or at least a nice score, for “GramNaKartke,” who back in May stone bubbled the XL Inferno $2,100 High Roller. As for “kiskutya23,” it was another win following his March 23rd victory in the 2,000 Super Turbo Swordfish.
    Kafrou “Kafrou” Thessaloni Slays Crocodile for Greece

    Another tournament that surpassed its guarantee on Sunday was the $160 buy-in Crocodile. Instead of the $25K GTD, a $34,500 prize pool was on tap as 230 players took to the virtual felt. Just 36 players earned a piece of it including “MalakiasCF” (31st for $258.75), the aforementioned “Fukuruku” (27th for $293.25), XL Infernon Mega Deep runner-up “cuadrado12” (6th for $1,552.50), and Brazil’s “R.nahntanoJ” (3rd for $3,898.50).

    In the end, Greece’s Kafrou “Kafrou” Thessaloni beat out Sweden’s “IAmWelfare” to win the title and a $7,055.25 first-place prize.
    What to watch out for:


    The “Champion-Chips” micro series, which features buy-ins ranging from $1-$50, kicked off on Sunday and will host 18 events with $150,000 in guaranteed prize prizes through July 30. Simply look under “Tournaments” to find the “ChampionChips” tab for all events and satellites.

    WSOP Bracelet Winner Cashes Sunday Lightning

    The $109 buy-in Sunday Lightning drew 175 players who accounted for 103 rebuys. That surpassed the advertised $20,000 guarantee by creating a $27,800 prize pool, which was distributed among the top 24 finishers. Among those to earn some cash were Michael “AcesJoker88” Acevedo (20th for $264.10), 2016 Super XL Series Main Event champ “Gr33nApples” (14th for $347.50), and Chris “NigDawG” Brammer (8th for $834).

    Brammer is barely a moth removed from topping a field of 505 players to win the 2017 World Series of Poker Event #45: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em for $527,555 and his first gold bracelet.

    After just over eight hours, the title came down to Russia’s “powerpoke99” and the UK’s “pketazezbaby.” The latter ended up coming out on top to capture a $6,672 top prize. Back in March, “pketazezbaby” finished runner-up in the $20,000 Saturday Challenge for $3,309.

    “LeshiyAS” Turns $30 Swordfish Buy-In Into $5K Prize

    With 1,018 players, the $30 buy-in $25,000 Deepstack Swordfish surpassed its guarantee by creating a prize pool of $27,995. Among the players to go deep were XL Inferno Eent #197 champ “Mindcrushers” (32nd for $109.18), “Jishington” (18th for $153.97), “Scampi76” (7th for $839.85), and “firefish” (3rd for $2,687.52.

    After a marathon 11 hours and 15 minutes – remember, this was a deepstack event – Estonia’s “LeshiyAS” bested Croatia’s “UNSTOPPABLE1” to win $5,039. It’d been a long time since “LeshiyAS” graced the top of the payouts. In May 2015, he came out on top of a 152-player field to win the $25 buy-in $2,500 GTD DeepStack for $771.42.

    One thing is for sure, “LeshiyAS” knows how to turn a small buy-in into big scores.

  15. Hi, I don't know if you can help but I've had an account with 888 for over 10 years and a couple of days ago they just decide out of the blue to disable my account and ask for ID to be uploaded. Anyway, I uploaded it to the link provided and the account is still locked. Pretty annoying timing because I wanted to play that championchips tournament last sunday too. Can you get it unlocked for me please? My account name is 8ROM, same as on here.

    THIS WEEK: August 06, 2017



    Kenny “SpaceyFCB” Hallaert Completes Online Triple Crown

    Kenny “SpaceyFCB” Hallaert, arguably one of the hottest players in all of poker right now, took down Sunday’s biggest buy-in tournament on 888poker, the $120,000 Whale. The $1,050 buy-in event attracted 117 players who accounted for 60 rebuys, which created a $177,000 prize pool.

    Among those to earn a portion of it were Andreas “KURDEdersim” Samuelsson (3rd for $23,010), Rocco “sephir0t” Palumbo (5th for $11,505), Thomas “WushuTM” Muhlocker (7th for $7,522), Johannes “TrollKonst8” Korsar (8th for $6,195), Rafael “keybr” Wantanabe (9th for $4,867), and Troy “S.Janowski” Queneville (10th for $4,248).

    After 9 hours and 18 minutes, Hallaert defeated fellow countryman Sebastian “iknowmybody” Saffari to claim the title and $44,250 first-place prize. Saffari earned $30,090 for second place.

    By winning two other online tournaments elsewhere during the week, Hallaert’s Whale win gave him a coveted online poker Triple Crown.

    “Completed my Triple Crown today in style,” he tweeted. “It was a good 10 day grind. Couple of days off now.”

    The win was another impressive result on his poker résumé. Back in April, he won our $15,000 Crocodile for $4,588, and over the summer he nine cashes at the World Series of Poker including a third-place finish in Event #36: $5,000 NLH 6-Handed for $238,855 and finishing 64th in the Main Event for $101,444. The latter result came a year after he made the WSOP November Nine, placing sixth for more than $1.4 million.
    Sweden’s “1LevelAbove” Claims Third Major Title in Less Than Four Months

    What many consider our premiere Sunday event – the $215 buy-in, $100K GTD Mega Deep – once again surpassed the guarantee by attracted 516 participants, which created a $103,200 prize pool distributed to the top 72 players.

    “DoffDavi” (45th for $433.44), “prebzzz” (39th for $546.96), “imabarista” (15th for $1,032), “heyfreddy” (9th for $1,382), and “AAorKK403” (4th for $7,740) were all among those to make deep runs. Meanwhile, three players notched five-figure cashes. “aRigold780” and “Leqenden” earned $10,526 and $14,293 for finishing third and second respectively, while Sweden’s “1LevelAbove” came out on top after nearly 12 hours to take the grand prize off $19,504.

    It was another impressive win for “1LevelAbove,” who back in June won the Sunday Lightning 6Max for $6,084 and a month before that won the XL Inferno Event #182 $45,000 Sunday Breeze for $9,000.
    Germany’s “Konrad115” Wins Turbo Mega Deep

    Meanwhile, in the $215 buy-in, $35K GTD Turbo Mega Deep, 150 players rebought 71 times to create a $44,200 prize pool. Among the two dozen players to get paid were Whale finalist Johannes “TrollKonst8” Korsar (20th for $552.50), Joao Mathias “joao_mathias” Baumgarten (10th for $994.50), “StuntSoHard” (6th for $1,989), and Zachary “DuduPa1986” Korik (3rd for $5,304), who you’ll read more about below.

    In the end, after just 4 hours and 42 minutes, Germany’s “Konrad115” toppled “windiswild” to claim the title and $9,613 prize. Last September, “Konrad115” finished fifth in the Super XL Series Main Event for $86,130. That was the same tournament that 888poker Ambassador Dominik Nitsche finished third in for $206,400 after a three-way deal.
    XL Inferno Champ Claims Lighting 6-Max Title

    The $109 buy-in Sunday Lightning 6-Max surpassed its $20K GTD by attracting 186 players who rebought 101 times. That created a $28,700 prize pool that was distributed to the top 24 places including “E_Dub” (17th for $358.75), XL Inferno champ “Magnf1cious” (11th for $502.25), and Zachary “DuduPa1986” Korik (4th for $2,439).

    After “Gwonkel” fell in third place for $3,587, Sweden’s “Thanilo” and Romania’s “V.BlomFan60” squared off for the title and a $6,888 first-place prize. After 9 hours and 5 minutes, the latter came out on top to capture the Lightning title.

    Back in May, “V.BlomFan60” won the XL Inferno Event #20 $160 Crocodile, a tournament that attracted 309 players, for $8,968.
    Germany’s “DrKoRn718” Breezes His Way to a Win

    The $55 buy-in, $20K GTD Sunday Breeze saw 447 players take to the virtual felt, which resulted in a $22,350 prize pool offered up to the top 63 finishers. Among those to cash were “ImBillieJean” (20th for $134.10) “msksevart” (15th for $223.50), and “_Kapec75_” (11th for $268.20), just to name a few.

    “Odyseus58” Takes Down the Mega Deep

    The popular $215 buy-in Mega Deep offered its 492 participants a $100,000 prize pool, which was reserved for the top 64 players.

The win came just over a week after “E_Dub” finished runner-up in the August 4 edition of the $8,000 Swordfish for $1,228.

  30. Just wondering what the reason is for 888 scores taking so long to be added to P5's profiles vs other poker rooms? Not that i actually care all that much as it's clear some just wont get added at all. Just seems a bit weird to me when the likes of SharkScope and PokerProLabs are readily available and don't miss any cashes and have them added, usually, within 24hrs. Again, not crying about missing scores but just wondering why even some guys huge scores are only added long after the fact, sometimes even 3+ months.

    Cheers,

    Flop
