  1. Just when you thought the schedule of major online poker tournaments was about to take a breath, here comes this Sunday’s slate of events in 888poker’s Millions Superstorm Series. Online grinders take note: September 27 is one of the biggest days in 888poker’s month-long, $8 million guaranteed Millions Superstorm Series. On this one day, there are 15 tournaments, promising nearly $400,000 in total prize money, two of which boast six-figure guarantees. So even though the World Series of Poker Online may be over and the World Championship of Online Poker has crowned its Main Event winner, poker players looking for value and the opportunity to take home a title still have more to play for. Six-Figures On The Line Of course, Sunday is the biggest day of the week in online poker, and this week 888poker is offering a pair of tournaments fit to be a part of the Sunday Majors. The first is the 888 Millions Sunday Special, a $215 buy-in tournament with a $100,000 guarantee. With long levels and 50,000 in starting chips, the Sunday Special promises to live up to its name. Plus, for recent depositors, there is a 30 seat freeroll satellite taking place the day before, so players who plan on making an effort to play in this one can plan ahead and take a shot at a free ticket. Starting just one hour later, is 888poker's marquee weekly tournament, the $109 buy-in $100,000 Mega Deep. The schedule staple often provides five-figure paydays for those that make it to the end and savvy players know that, on occasion, this tournament has the possibility to provide players a little bonus in the form of an overlay. Mid-stakes Menu While it’s true that the biggest buy-in events carry the biggest guarantees of the day, mid-stakes players have more than their share of bankroll boosting opportunities this Sunday. Seven of the 15 tournaments on tap have a buy-in between $20-$55, all with healthy guarantees. But perhaps the best value of all of those tournaments is the $55 buy-in, 888 Millions Mini Sunday Special with its $50,000 guarantee. Even if $55 is slightly out of reach, 888poker is running plenty of $5 satellites to help lower stakes players find their way into the Mini Sunday Special. Plenty of PKOs 888poker has also packed its Sunday schedule with a number of their popular Progressive Knock Out tournaments. Bounty hunters can stay in action all day by playing in any or all of the seven PKO tournaments on the schedule. For those that enjoy playing on the high side, the $88 buy-in PKO 8-Max offers a $15,000 guarantee and the biggest bounties of the day. But, for those who want the same PKO action but at a smaller price point, check out the $7.50 PKO 8-Max with $6,000 up for grabs. The guarantee is roughly half of the larger tournament but at less than 1/10th the price. While Sunday is indeed the biggest day of the week, players can participate in the 888poker Millions Superstorn all the way through Sunday, October 11. 888poker Millions Superstorm Sunday Schedule [table id=108 /]

  3. In January, the fourth edition of the 888poker Super XL Series exceeded all expectations, covering all of its guarantees by an average of 210%. Due to its popularity, the site is bringing the series back in May, this time guaranteeing $3 million over 40 events, including a $1,050 buy-in, $1 million guaranteed Main Event. The series, which runs from May 14-22, will continue its tradition of offering a Mini, Turbo and Main version of each event. Entries start as low as $5 and max out at the $2,100 buy-in, $400,000 High Roller Event scheduled for Monday, May 16. With its $3 million guarantee, 888poker is upping the ante from its previous series, which boasted just $2 million in guaranteed cash. The first event on the docket, the $88,888 Crazy 8 Super XL Kick Off, is an $88 buy-in tournament featuring the same structure that will be used in the $888 Crazy Eights 8-Handed No-Limit Hold'em event of the 2016 WSOP. The winner of 888poker’s version will not only receive the largest chunk of the prize pool, but will also be rewarded with an entry into the WSOP live event. "I will be playing on 888 a lot practicing and trying out a few new, different things I have been working on," said 888 pro Dominik Nitsche. "I just heard there will be another XL series right before Vegas, so that's amazing news as it will give me a chance to get in some big tournaments before playing the $300,000 Super High Roller Bowl." Super XL satellites are already running on 888poker and are offered as low as $0.01. Players will additionally have the chance to qualify in two mega satellites. The first costs $160 to enter and takes place on Sunday, May 5 at 18:35. A minimum of 15 seats will be up for grabs in that tournament. The second is a $215 buy-in satellite which takes place on Sunday, May 22 at 15:05 and will award 50 seats. The January edition of the series proved a major success for 888poker and Finland's ‘jnevanli’ bested the UK's ‘carmen.1957’ in the Main Event, taking home a $182,663 payday.

[caption width="640"] 888 is looking for player feedback in the form of a town hall this Saturday.[/caption] With competition in the New Jersey online gaming market on the rise, Garden State operators are working diligently to promote their US brands and fine-tune their products to keep current players happy. 888, for its part, is taking a novel approach to gathering feedback from customers and plans to hold a New Jersey town hall meeting Saturday, May 21. "Online gambling in New Jersey has grown to be a $150+ million industry in just over 3 years," the company said in a press release. "888 was one of the first movers in the market, and its software powers 888poker/casino, WSOP.com and Harrah’s online casino in the Garden State." The inaugural meeting is being held at The Fireside Grill on 135 S. Main St. in Marlboro, NJ from 1-3pm. Attendees will enjoy complimentary refreshments and have the chance to pick up some 888poker swag. Players are encouraged to attend and discuss their experience on the site, and offer their thoughts and ideas about how the product can be improved. “We want to know what we are doing well, what we need to improve, and what new things players would like to see,” continued the release.

[caption width="640"] 888poker is giving players around the world the chance to star in their own poker story video.[/caption] Many poker players just want to maximize their profits when they sit down at the poker table.

They want to see their name in lights. They want to be TV stars. They want to be famous.

They’ve just got to play. 888 recently introduced a personalized video program that takes the last week of a player’s activity and turns it into a statistic-diven video that can be shared via social media with friends and family around the world. "888 was looking for a way to engage players in a new and powerful way in order to retain them. By using their stats and behavior and creating a personalized TV poker series; with a new episode each week, each player can see their progress and compete against themselves and other players,” the company said in a press release. Some of the 21 different data points that appear in the video includes an aggressiveness meter, a loose-tight meter, the number of knockouts recorded in tournaments and the nemesis for each player. As the player continues to create weekly videos the story will continue to expand to include more data including national rankings, gender and even playing patterns. If you want to become a star of your own poker video, sign-up for 888poker and get $88 free. "Poker is a skill game with a lot of statistics, so we can generate very personal and engaging content that can be interesting to the player and even improve [their] game," the company said. It’s also easy to share the video with friends and family around the world. Each video includes built-in share buttons meaning that putting the video on Twitter, Facebook or even WhatsApp is just a single click away. If you’re dying to be the star of your own poker video series, you might have to be patient. The program was initially rolled out to 10,000 users and quickly expanded to 20,000 users, all in English-speaking markets. As the program becomes more successful and popular, more users and more languages will be added. To learn more about the personalized video program visit 888poker.com
  6. [caption width="640"] Chris Moorman won over 0,000 in November playing live events in the United States[/caption] Chris 'moorman1' Moorman is easily the most decorated player in PocketFives history. He's the only player to earn more than $10,000,000 in lifetime online earnings and has more than $4,000,000 earnings than any other player. He's won the PocketFives Triple Crown a record 25 times and he's been the #1-ranked player in the world 13 times. With all of that success on the virtual felt, do not sleep on Moorman's track record on the live tournament scene. Over the last three weeks he has managed to add three more cashes to his resume, including the fifth runner-up finish of his career. The 31-year old 888 poker Ambassador started the month off by being part of a group of 17 players that qualified from The Commerce for December's SoCal Poker Championship. Moorman outlasted 3,498 other players in the $350 SCPC qualifier at The Commerce Casino to make his way to the SCPC Main Event which takes place at The Bike December 14-15. He followed that up two weeks later with a second place finish in the2016 LA Poker Open, also at The Commerce. The $1,650 buy-in event had a field of 345 and Moorman was able to outlast all of them except for Scott Stewart, the eventual champion. During heads up play, the final two players agreed to a deal that added $10,000 to second place, allowing Moorman to walk away with $85,510 for his efforts. As if putting in a dominating performance on the West Coast wasn't enough, Moorman then hopped a plane and headed to Florida to play the Seminole Rock N Roll Poker Open where he found himself at yet another final table. Moorman made his way through 72 other players in the $1,100 NLHE Turbo event to reach the final table before eventually finishing fifth for $5,670. The final table included November Niner Jerry Wong as well as Jean Gaspard and eventual champ, Peter Eichhardt. 888Live London Festival Main Event Is a Big Success Counting the $10,800 SCPC seat that he won, Moorman earned $101,980 in the month of November to bring his 2016 live earnings to $423,247.

To mark the special occasion, the site is boosting the event’s normal guarantee nearly fivefold to an impressive $500,000. The inaugural Mega Deep launched in January 2012, and started out as something of a well-kept secret amongst poker pros who frequented the event. Eventually, the $215 buy-in tournament attracted a mainstream following, and would soon become a leading weekly event. For the upcoming fifth anniversary tournament, the site has made a few notable changes. Aside from the increased prize pool, 888 will lower the length of blind levels from 30 to 20 minutes, while also allowing for one re-entry.

That series is also quite popular with the poker community, and has seen continual yearly increases in its prize pool. A Favorite Amongst Pros Several 888 poker pros and ambassadors will be on hand for the Mega Deep celebration, including accomplished tournament specialist Chris Moorman. The British grinder, who boasts $4.4 million in all-time winnings, has played in countless events, but still considers the Mega Deep to be one of his favorites. Is Bitcoin Part of the Future of Poker? "With the amazing structure allowing for great flexibility of play, the Mega Deep has always been one of my favorite tournaments of the week," said Moorman. "Upping the prize pool to half a million dollars makes this a must-play for any aspiring or professional poker player." Poker pro Jonathan ‘jgjg3000’ Gill, who once made three Mega Deep final tables in a period of six weeks, will also be in attendance. "I will certainly be looking to play this event," said Gill. "The Mega Deep is a special tournament. Realistically it is what I believe to be the best structured MTT across all major sites, which I believe is partly the reason for my success in it. Weekly it attracts many players, whether online regulars or recs who have satellited in. It is hard to find a better weekly tournament." The Mega Deep also regularly draws some of the biggest names in the industry. Poker pros Felipe ‘mr.salgado’ Salgado, Peter ‘joeychestnut’ Murphy, and Marcelo ‘CHELitw’ Garcia Gonzalez are amongst the event’s past winners. The exclusive tournament is just a part of 888’s strategy to woo customers with creative promos and special events. In January, the site will kick off its second 888Live Festival, inviting players to Rozvadov, Czech Republic for what is sure to be a one-of-a-kind experience. The 10-day event will take place at the biggest poker room in Europe, King’s Casino Rozvadov, and feature a €600,000 prize pool.

The tournament is expected to be even bigger than its Series VI predecessor, which attracted 332 entrants and created a $664,000 prize pool. Germany’s ‘ICrushu556’ took the top spot in that event, banking $107,606 after agreeing to a three-way chop. “I'm excited that 888poker is pumping up the guarantees and putting more money into online poker,” said 888 Ambassador Chris Moorman in a release. “It's awesome to have multiple series throughout the year that gets everyone on the virtual felts for a couple of weeks. The Super XL Series is at the top of my list of must-play poker events. Now I just need to win one!” 888, which has padded the January Super XL prize pool with $1 million more than it offered in Series VI in September, has good reason to believe that January’s festival will be its biggest yet. Just four years ago, the site ran its inaugural Super XL Series, guaranteeing just $500,000 in the $600 buy-in Main Event. Compare that with Series VI, which surpassed its $1.5 million Main Event guarantee with a record $1.74 million prize pool, generated by 1,291 players. In that tournament, Canada’s ‘GetLuckyAK’ pocketed the $261,214 first-place prize after chopping with Sami ‘d144n1’ Kelopuro and 888poker Ambassador Dominik ‘888Dominik’ Nitsche. What’s more, all guarantees in the January 2016 Super XL Series IV were covered by an average of 210%. Finland's ‘jnevanli’ claimed victory in the Main Event that go round, defeating UK's ‘carmen.195’. At the time, the Main Event boasted a $1 million guarantee, with $182,635 set aside for the winner. “I think it's great to see how small we started compared to what we have become now,” said Nitsche. “It truly has gotten better each and every single time, and I know because I played pretty much all of them. For me, as an Ambassador, I like that I am able to offer input directly to our Poker Manager who always listens to feedback. I'm very confident the next XL Series will even be better than the last one.” Biggest 888poker Stories in 2016Series VII participants will also have the chance to place on the newly-introduced Super XL leaderboard, which awards the top 18 finishers a seat in the Super XL Champion of Champions event on Tuesday, January 31. The winner of that contest will receive a full package to the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event, while all others will go home with a consolation prize. For those looking to get in on the action for less, 888poker is currently running daily satellites. Additionally, players who make a deposit of $10 or more using the code SUPER10 will receive three tickets to the daily Super XL Qualifiers.
  12. [caption width="640"] Poker success has opened a whole new world for 888poker ambassador Nicolau Villa-Lobos[/caption] Nicolau Villa-Lobos has made a deep run in the World Series of Poker Main Event, he posted a runner-up finish to Mike Watson in the stacked High Roller field at the 2013 WSOP Europe series, but rather than travel the globe seeking only the toughest competition at the higher stakes, Villa-Lobos spends much of his time at home playing in Brazilian Series of Poker events. Over the past four years, he has cashed in 14 BSOP events, most notably a runner-up finish in the Sao Paolo Main Event in 2012 and a final table appearance in the High Roller event at the same venue in 2014. While his success in Brazil has primarily come in Sao Paolo, Villa-Lobos has different reasons why another spot is his favorite on the tour. “I love the one in Natal (in northeastern Brazil). Nice hotel in front of the beach where I can surf a bit. Amazing food in that area too. Probably my favorite,” Villa-Lobos says. He has plenty of other reasons why the BSOP is worth his time too though. “Playing poker for an extended weekend is amazing. Besides that, BSOP it's an opportunity to visit amazing cities spread Brazil and meeting great friends. So, it's a combination of those factors that makes the experience amazing.” Natalie Hof Joins Team888As mentioned though, Villa-Lobos has found plenty of success outside of Brazil. Ever since his 77th-place finish in the 2012 WSOP Main Event, Villa-Lobos has been a representative of 888 Poker, which means he has played poker all over the world promoting the brand. “Traveling the world is amazing. 888 gave me the opportunity to travel to every continent playing the best poker tournaments in the world. This is a dream for every poker player,” Villa-Lobos says. “Being around of great people is such a great experience too.” What Villa-Lobos is really looking forward to is for the glamour of these major tournaments to head home when the WSOP Circuit visits Brazil for the first-ever South American Circuit series in WSOP history. Yes, it is a competition for rings and not bracelets, but the mere presence in Brazil is a big deal for Villa-Lobos and his peers. “It's massive! Huge! Having a WSOP circuit in Brazil is a great accomplishment for both WSOP and Brazil. The WSOP is now setting foot in the most successful place if we are talking about [the growth of] live tournaments. Brazil proved that we are in love to this amazing game, and our capacity to make huge events is great. On the other hand, Brazil is going to a next level if we are talking about international poker events. Having the WSOP here is mind blowing.” When you consider the spectacle Villa-Lobos experienced in Rio this summer, his words have even more weight. He was one of many Brazilians who attended the recent Summer Olympics, and his reviews for it are even more enthusiastic than those for the Circuit. “It was amazing,” he gushes.. “It was a once in a lifetime experience to have the Games in my city. I had a busy schedule and I went to almost every sport competition. I saw Phelps, judo, handball, basketball a few times, beach volley, volleyball, and football semis and final. And I’m probably missing some out of this list!” Villa-Lobos and friends, including fellow 888 Pro Bruno Kawauti, took in all the sights and sounds of the Olympics. If you have ever seen a Brazilian rail, you realize this was a truly epic celebration. “It was a huge party for two weeks. Everywhere was super-crowded and the arenas were amazing. Can't imagine that happens the same way in other places.” In some ways, it was making up for the missed opportunities that come with the sacrifices of a busy poker travel schedule. Villa-Lobos and many mother Brazilians had to make a choice between the WSOP and the World Cup in 2014. Villa-Lobos and most others opted for the poker equivalent of the World Cup instead of the real deal. He missed the major matches, but did manage to see some of the early games before heading to Vegas. “Went to Maracanã to watch Belgium and Russia, and that was it for me. In the end, I was actually glad to be in Vegas,” he says with a laugh. Many poker pros start playing high rollers, then never go back to the smaller stakes. Villa-Lobos is not motivated by ego though. His decisions both in what events he plays and how he spends his free time is about finding the best Brazil has to offer in tandem with international travel. He understands this is how you grow poker in Brazil. You travel to raise international awareness about all the great stops and events the country has to offer, then you come home when these events run to play in them and support them.
  13. [caption width="320" align="alignleft"] Bruno Kawauti is one of Brazil's biggest poker stars[/caption] Bruno Kawauti Talks Planning for the Future, and Predicting it Too There are not many things where, if you take 15th place, your life is going to completely change. That is the beauty of the World Series of Poker Main Event tough. Ever since Brasil’s Bruno Kawauti finished 15th in 2013, his life, his priorities, his opportunities all completely changed. From that point forward, Kawauti has done his best to make the most of these new possibilities while still balancing a social life with his time at the poker tables. "I used to play cash online in 2013 before my deep run in the Main Event," Kawauti recalls. “I was quitting tournaments. I used to play only cash games and decided to not play tournaments at all. Then I made the semifinal table of the Main Event, I got 15th, and everything changed.” The changes included a sponsorship with 888 poker and the opportunity to play poker all over the world. He continues to take part in events near his home, including a runner-up finish in the Brasilian Series of Poker Main Event in Sao Paolo for over $92,000. He was joined at the final table with some familiar faces, including Thiago Nishijima, another Brazilian who made a name for himself at the WSOP in Vegas. Often people will try to make a story out of the competition between women in poker or players from up and coming poker communities. Such was the case with Kawauti, who became the top Brazilian finisher in WSOP Main Event history. Shortly after his run, a question came up in an interview which threw Kawauti for a loop. "I was the best Brasilian ever [in the Main Event] and there was an interview here in Brazil. The guy asked how I felt about my record and if I wanted to keep it. I said of course not. I want this record to be broken,” Kawauti said. As fate should have it, the day after Kawauti finished in 15th, he had a dream about what would happen the following year. “I had a dream that someone broke my record and it was a friend of mine and I was on the rail,” Kawauti says. Then, Bruno Politano, a friend of his, broke his record by finishing eighth and Kawauti was on hand to watch the entire thing. “I have some sick, sick dreams.” His dreams weren’t just limited to Politano either. On the first day of the WSOP in 2015, Kawauti had a dream his friend Nishijima would win a bracelet. On June 18th, Nishijima won the $3,000 No Limit Hold’em event. When not predicting the future, Kawauti spends his time working on the future of his own game. With the help of a team of players he works with, including Guilherme Cheveau, Kelvin Ferber, and Fabiano Kovalski. He previously intended to focus on cash games and shift away from tournaments, but post-2013, his mindset has completely changed. “I used to mostly play live cash games here in Brasil, but I decided that if you play lived games in general, you play against worse players, but your game doesn’t improve. Online gives you that need to be better in order to beat the games,” said Kawauti. So, he joined his team and now grinds five days a week, taking scheduled breaks every Saturday and Tuesday. His Saturdays off help him rest up for a busy day of Sunday grinding. His Tuesdays are spent away from his computer too for a pragmatic reason as well. “Tuesdays are the days I lose more money,” Kawauti admits, pointing out with higher buy-in offerings, there are more experienced players in the field, making all the MTTs a little tougher than other days of the week. From 888 poker Magazine: Poker – Is it a Game, a Sport or Both? Kawauti’s discussion of why he chose tournaments gives you a glimpse into how his competitive mind operates. As he mentioned, cash games were lucrative, but didn’t prepare you to improve and win long-term. Plus, there is an intangible reward to poker tournaments that can be summed up in a single word: validation. “I think one of the things that also made me change from cash games to tournaments is that feeling at the final table of every elimination down to heads-up. To win a trophy, to win a tournament…you really feel it," said Kawauti. "After the deep run, I started to look more for moments. It is more interesting and every hour that you study, the choice you made to be a poker pro is worth it and means so much in that moment.” The extrinsic rewards that come with winning tournaments keeps Kawauti hungry, focused, and professional about his poker player, both as an 888 ambassador and as a full time pro who grinds a dedicated schedule online week in and week out. He does find time to relax though and, like many poker pros in his home country, he returned from the WSOP in time to enjoy the recent Summer Olympics. "In the beginning I thought the Olympics would have a lot of riots. Rio is a very nice place, it is a must-visit place for everyone in the world, but it is a very small place. I thought there would be a lot of traffic jams and lines to everywhere. I thought it was going to be a mess. Then Nicolau (Villa Lobos), one of my best friends, said, ‘Bruno, you have to come here. It is one time in your life you’ll have the Olympics in your city.’” "It was the best decision I made in 2016, I think,” Kawauti claims. “I am addicted to sports. I love soccer, so I watched the semifinals and finals against Germany.” It seems Kawauti loves sports, but his life choices since he made his run in the Main Event tell you he loves any sort of competition, be it against the best players in the world, the best players in Brazil, or just competing against himself as he strives to grow and get better at the game that changed his life.
  14. 888poker’s popular Super XL Series returns in September for its six edition and features $4 million in guaranteed cash with a $1.5 million Main Event prize pool. This iteration of the online poker festival is the site’s richest yet, boasting a one million-dollar increase in payouts from its May series, and double the prizes handed out in its fourth edition in January. The action kicks off on Saturday, September 17 with the $100,000 Crazy 8 Super XL Kickoff and culminates with the $1,050 buy-in Main Event on Sunday, September 25. This year, players will once again have their choice of playing a Main, Mini and Turbo version of each event. With entry fees starting at five dollars and rising into the thousands, 888 hopes to attract lower limit players and high-stakes grinders alike. The site’s $500,000 guaranteed, $2,100 buy-in High Roller event – the highest priced tournament on the schedule – is set to play out on September 20 Other standout tournaments include the $215 buy-in, $100,000 guaranteed Quarterback event, the $160 buy-in, $75,000 guaranteed Six Max event and the $150 buy-in, $30,000 guaranteed Knockout Event. In addition to the series’ regular priced Main Event, 888 will offer Mini, Micro, Turbo and Super Turbo Main Events, giving away a combined $210,000 in guaranteed cash. 888poker ambassador Chris Moorman is looking forward to playing in the September series and hopes to add to his more than $4.1 million in tournament winnings. "I can't wait to play the upcoming 888poker Super XL Series," Moorman said. "There is a great selection of tournaments every day with great structures and a wide variety of tournament types to keep it fresh.

"I just think it's a great series scheduled at the perfect time,” Nitschesaid. “In my opinion scheduling is the most important factor for any online tournament series. For a lot of other players and myself, there is just not very much to play in September so the XL Series fits in very nicely. A lot of people will be at home and will have a chance to compete for big prizes." The poker pro plans to play in nearly every event, but called the $2,100 High Roller tournament his favorite of the series.

In January, the series covered all of its guarantees by an average of 210% and saw its Main Event prize pool climb to $1.2 million, the biggest ever offered on 888poker. In that battle, Finland's 'jnevanli' struck a final table deal with UK's 'carmen.1957' to take the largest slice of the pool. This year’s May series was also a big hit, attracting 1,268 players and creating a Main Event prize pool of $1.268 million. Sweden's 'Gr33nApples' took the top spot in the tournament and banked the $183,869 first-place prize. Moorman sees the series’ success as a great sign for the industry. "I think the growth of the Super XL Series shows the demand there is for poker," added Moorman. "People want to play big events for big money online. I'm so glad 888poker is helping to fulfill this." The site is running daily qualifiers for the series every day of the week along with satellites that start as low as 1¢. For the full schedule and more details head over to 888poker.
  15. [caption width="640"] 888poker is hoping BLAST Poker is a huge hit[/caption] Lottery-style sit-n-gos have been all the rage in the online poker world the past 18 months and now 888poker has come up with a new twist on the format called BLAST Poker. Similar to other lottery-style sit-n-gos, BLAST is a shorthanded, hyper-turbo SNG with a randomly drawn prize pool that ranges from 2X to 10,000X the buy-in. The game deviates, however, in a few key ways. 888 has put their own spin on the format by offering four-handed games instead of three, and implementing a timer, which when complete, interrupts the match and converts the game into an all in shootout. The bigger the prize pool, the more time players will have to make their own decisions. BLAST allots six minutes for the 2-5X level, eight minutes for the 10X level, 10 minutes for the 100X level and 12 minutes for the 1,000-10,000X level. BLAST players begin relatively deep with 1,500-chip stacks, much more than the 500-chip starting stacks common in the industry for this format. Don't have an 888poker account yet? Sign up through PocketFives and get a $88 free and get started playing BLAST Poker today! The game is also unique in that payouts aren’t solely winner take all, and are instead structured depending on the prize pool multiplier awarded. At the lowest level, the first place finisher walks away with 100% of the pot, while at the 1,000X and 10,000X levels every player is guaranteed at least 10%, with 60% going to the winner. The vast majority of the time, games are seeded with prize pools of either 2X or 5X the buy-in, with the elusive 10,000X maximum multiplier awarded just once in every 100,000 games. The 1,000X prize is handed out in 1 of 25,000 games, and the 100X is awarded once in every 2,500 games.

[caption width="650"] Dominik Nitsche was one of many 888poker ambassadors who put together a great year on the live tournament circuit.[/caption] The last 12 months have been prosperous ones for 888poker ambassadors. With a healthy roster of World Series of Poker bracelet winners and World Poker Tour champions, it is no surprise to see the team of professionals put together a combined total of over $2,100,000 in tournament earnings. With 2016 drawing to a close here is a look back at just how well the likes of Chris Moorman, Dominik Nitsche and Sofia Lövgren did. Dominik Nitsche 2016 cashes: 19 2016 total earnings: $1,491,914 It was another stellar year for Dominik ‘bounatirouIMO’ Nitsche, who put together his second consecutive year of over $1,000,000 in earnings. Nitsche picked up a win in the UKIPT High Roller at EPT Dublin in February and then followed that up with a runner-up finish in a $50,000 Super High Roller at the Aria. All told, those cashes earned Nitsche nearly over $800,000 alone. Chris Moorman 2016 cashes: 10 2016 total earnings: $423,247 Former PocketFives #1 ranked player, Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman, put together another stellar campaign in 2016.

Bruno Kawauti 2016 cashes: 18 2016 total earnings: $151,639 Headlining the Brazilian contingent of the 888poker team was Bruno Kawauti. Most of Kawauti’s damage was done in his native country as he racked up cash after cash. His biggest cash came as a result of his second place finish in July’s BSOP Main Event, which earned him a little over $92,000 Bruno Politano 2016 cashes: 15 2016 total earnings: $101,581 Two years after his November Nine appearance, Bruno Politano continued to put up solid results. The highlight of Politano’s year came in April when his final tabled the 888 Poker Festival Main Event, finishing fifth for a $38,618 score. 888poker and FlowEsports Form PartnershipSofia Lövgren 2016 cashes: 9 2016 total earnings: $100,503 Sofia Lovgren put together her finest year yet with over $100,000 in live earnings.

  17. [caption width="641"] Brazilian football legend Denilson found a new place to call home: 888 poker[/caption] Earlier this year, former international footballer Denilson was signed by a different club. No, he wasn’t making a comeback in the world of professional football, but he was announced as a brand ambassador for 888poker. The highly decorated Brazilian footballer, who played 61 times for his country between 1996 and 2003 said that he hoped that the move would develop his own poker skills, as well as encourage new players to get involved in the game. Denilson first started playing poker with friends and quickly fell in love, with his competitive footballing background helping him to quickly get to grips with the game. "I enjoyed it a lot, and kept learning and playing. Football and poker are both passionate games, but each has its own particularities," Denilson said. "My competitiveness is what moved me while playing in stadiums, and it’s also what moves me whilst playing at the tables." Six months after his appointment as brand ambassador, the world is still keenly watching the country of Brazil as one of the world’s most evolving poker markets. In September the World Series of Poker announced that they were adding a new WSOP Circuit event to their schedule. Taking place in São Paulo at the end of October, it is the first WSOP Circuit event to take place in South America and was met with delight by Beto Lima, the official representative of the WSOP Circuit in Brazil. He said that he was delighted to welcome the first WSOP Circuit event to Brazil. "We know that winning the WSOP is undoubtedly one of the greatest achievements in a poker athlete’s career," said Lima. "Poker is growing up step by step in Brazil, but at an incredible speed." 888poker Partners with WSOP CircuitDenilson agrees with Lima, and says that a rapid increase in the quantity of tournaments and amount of regular players in his home country has only contributed to the game’s popularity. "People that used to only play in home games have been brought to the online and live side of the game,” said Denilson. Not only have normal members of the public been captured by the game of poker, but celebrities as well, which Denilson believes has helped to increase the attendance and the popularity of the game. Denilson is joined by fellow Brazilians Bruno Foster, Bruno Kawauti and Nicolau Villa-Lobos in the Team888 ranks the success of poker in Brazil is down to the different way that poker is now viewed. "Poker used to be seen as a casino game. Now that time has passed, poker has its own place," said Denilson. "Every year professional players and tournaments break records, and little by little poker has managed to change that old image." "I think that more and more, poker is being being seen as a mind game, and that's pretty much what attracts people to study, learn and play better." "I think this is very positive. Knowing and understanding other people’s minds helps you not only in the game, but also in life. I am sure that I use a lot of my poker skills in my daily life." With an enthusiastic player pool, celebrities lending their voices to the cause and room for potential expansion in both the live and online game, what does Denilson think the best course of action is for Brazilian poker in the future? "I think we need to follow the path that already exists. We need to keep bringing new people to the game, and promoting big events with attractive prizes." "Poker is a mind game. It combines passion, fun and emotion, and that is something which the Brazilian public already loves."
  18. [caption width="640"] Sofia Lovgren wants to be the first woman to win a World Poker Tour open event (WPT photo)[/caption] Every week or two it seems someone is bringing up something on Twitter or other social media regarding gender and the poker world. A massive debate ensues, people take sides, and the rest of us just grab the popcorn. With that in mind, you would think the reality TV concept Girl Got Game, which put nine poker-playing girls under one roof, would result in intense competition and catfights, but instead the ladies bonded and continue to support one another long after filming wrapped. Swedish poker pro and 888 ambassador Sofia Lovgren was approached by the producers of the show and agreed to take part in what turned out to be a very diverse collection of players from all over the world. Lovgren summed up each of her cast members with a single word: Katrina Lim - Positive Danielle Andersen - Boss Joanna Kwak- Frisky Oanh Bui - Cool Kitty Kuo - Funny Sabina Hiathullah - Energetic Samantha Abernathy - Adventurous Xuan Liu – Friendly In addition to living together, the ladies were also presented with tasks and challenges. Lovgren was game for just about anything, but not all of her castmates had the stomach for it. "I was surprised that so many of the girls chickened out when we had a challenge to eat crickets and scorpions," Lovgren says with a laugh. "Personally, I thought they were delicious." Initial filming wrapped before the 2016 World Series of Poker began, but the ladies continued to hang out and talk throughout the summer in Las Vegas. Lovgren certainly appreciated the camaraderie, which is not always easy for females to find in the poker world. "It's a fact that there aren't many female poker players playing the big poker tours, and the first years I traveled with my ex-boyfriend. The last year I've been traveling around with these female poker players and some other good friends. Of course we enjoy spending time together and also support each other in a great way which, for sure, is positive from a mental point of view." The experience was so positive that Lovgren recently hosted the ladies in Sweden. “We had all been playing lots of poker this summer and also spent time together in different constellations. I felt that it would be fun to invite all these girls to my lovely home country for a poker-free, crazy vacation week together,” she explains. The trip, which was done independent of the show, was quite a success. "I loved to show some typical Swedish traditions, like ‘kräftskiva’ (cray fish party), sailing to a small fishing village in the archipelago, and, of course, how to make the famous Swedish meatballs! We did many other things like going to a big to a music festival, roller coaster rides in the Liseberg amusement park, and some rather heavy partying!" The ladies of Girl Got Game are a much-needed wholly positive story of female poker pros supporting one another. They are all very competitive, but the competition is a healthy one, where everyone can succeed without it coming at the expense of someone else. Like many other women in the game, Lovgren would still like to see the female presence in poker grow not just with TV shows and publicity, but on the felt as well. "I’d like to see more female poker winning big tournaments and become superstars of poker. That would create more inspiration for other girls than anything else, I think," says Lovgren. As for how she can participate, she has a very specific goal in mind. "I’m planning to be the first female World Poker Tour, main tour event winner, which would certainly help," she half-jokes. 888poker signed a two-year deal to sponsor The Swedish Poker ChampionshipsUp first for Lovgren though is figuring out where to live so she is close to good cash games and tournaments. Her options are rather diverse. "Right now I'm considering Gothenburg [Sweden] or somewhere in Asia. I'm single now, so obviously anything can happen. I understand that I have a unique opportunity right now to be flexible and enjoy life without any big obligations, so I really try to make the most of life like traveling around the world in the next year." One of the reasons Lovgren has this opportunity is her relationship with 888. Having studied business management in school, Lovgren isn’t just about promoting the brand, she also plays an active role in developing the business. She is currently developing some business ideas for the growing Asian market. Lovgren has had a busy year, what with the show, the sponsorship, and finding a new home. You would think with that much on her plate, poker would take a place on the back burner, but Lovgren actually had a breakout year at the WSOP, cashing four times, including deep runs in both the Colossus and the Millionaire Maker, where she finished 12th. After getting her start in cash games, Lovgren’s transition to tournament player is going well and, with lots of grinding on the schedule for the fall and winter, she is in a great position to continue her success. Even if she does not win that WPT title this year, her growing presence in the poker world is something the women of poker can certainly get behind, well, except maybe the eating crickets part.

[caption width="640"] Nicolau Villa-Lobos thinks players should focus in the early parts of tournaments if they want to gain an avantage.[/caption] In addition to earning over seven figures playing online, Brazil’s Nicolau 'nicofellow' Villa-Lobos has racked up the cashes at various events at the Brasilian Series of Poker. With so much experience in a wide range of buy-ins in BSOP events, Villa-Lobos is the perfect person to talk to about how to approach the early levels of a poker tournament, especially large-field low buy-in events. There are plenty of players who don’t even bother to show up for a tournament until the antes kick in, but Villa-Lobos is a proponent of signing up and getting involved early. “I think early levels are amazing to get to know your table, and also there are a lot of ‘free’ chips flying. If a big fish is playing, he is not going to stay alive too long, so it's always a battle to get his chips,” Villa-Lobos says with a chuckle. While he encourages players to get involved early, he also stresses you can be active at the table without having to voluntarily put chips in the pot every hand. Rather than focus on your phone, watch a video on your tablet, or give your attention to whatever sporting event is on TV, Villa-Lobos reminds players that, while it may be difficult to focus, keeping your attention on the table is the only way to get a good read on your opponents. It isn’t just about following along the action either. Villa-Lobos believes there is no action too small to merit your scrutiny. “Pay attention in every move your opponents make. The way they get the chips, how much they are betting, how fast they are betting, and those kind of things,” he said. For Villa-Lobos, a key part of the process isn’t just observing his tablemates, it is also about discussing the game with his friends, like fellow poker ambassador Bruno Kawauti. The two Brasilian pros share a lot in common, including the same sponsor, the same home country, and both can boast deep runs in the World Series of Poker Main Event. Villa-Lobos took 77th in 2012, while Kawauti finished 15th in 2013. “He is definitely my best friend in poker,” he says of Kawauti. “We get along really well and I think I could spend some time saying good things about him. Most importantly, he is a loyal guy and I respect his values a lot.” He is also a great sounding board, as Villa-Lobos credits the friendship as the key factor in his growth as a poker pro. “I think that's how I improved my game the most. Being close to good poker players allows you to be in a constant learning process. Every piece information is valid! I definitely learned a lot with Bruno, I guess it works the other way around too.” While Villa-Lobos is always learning and improving, his approach to the first portion of tournaments doesn’t vary all that much from event-to-event. He has found a style he likes, and he sticks to it. He advises others to stick to their game plans in the first few hours of a tournament as well. “I still use the same style [at the beginning of a tournament,” Villa-Lobos says. “(You should) play solid and just enter the pots with the intent to win. Try to be the aggressor too.” While he advocates a relatively straightforward approach, don’t think Villa-Lobos is suggesting you focus on observing the action unless you have a premium hand. If anything, most tournament structures allow so much play early on that Villa-Lobos suggests keeping your range a little wider, as deep structures mean there is more room for post-flop maneuvering and aggressive play. “Since everyone is deep-stacked, you can afford to see more flops than usual as well,” he explains. In summary, if you’re taking a shot in a live tournament, don’t sacrifice the 25/50 level for some extra shuteye. Arriving at a tournament on time not only gives you more hands, it also gives you more opportunities. All levels of players are still in and there are more opportunities to win chips off weaker players. Thanks to deep-stack structures, there are more opportunities to see flops with non-premium hands as well. Most importantly though, there is free information to be had, but you have to both be there and pay attention to every little detail at the table. Observe, take notes, and talk things over with your fellow poker players to get a different take on the same situation. Doing all these things may not guarantee tournament success every time, but getting in the habit of being both active and acutely aware of what is happening as soon as you hear “Shuffle up and deal” are the kind of good habits that helped Villa-Lobos make runs in everything from the BSOP to a second-place finish in the 2013 WSOP Europe High Roller for nearly $700,000 to the thrill every poker player dreams of—a big run in the WSOP Main Event.

  21. [caption width="640"] Marinus Hoogma got into the 2017 WSOP Main Event for just .[/caption] Just a few weeks ago Marinus Hoogma and his brother Joep were just hanging out together watching 888poker ambassador and Twitch streamer Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot stream some poker. Joep, 22, has been playing online poker for a while now, but Marinus just more or less watched from the sidelines. Talbot was hyping up a freeroll he was running and Marinus figured he’d give it a try. “My brother’s like, ‘You should try it out as well, play some poker with me’, and Toknkaa had something going on where you could get a $10 bonus if you register,” said Marinus. “So I made my account and I lost there, sadly, in the tournament that (Talbot) organized.” Normally that could be the end of the tale, but not this time. Marinus decided to have a bit of fun. “I was like, ‘okay, let’s do some BLASTs’,” said Marinus. BLASTs are the lottery-style sit-n-go on 888poker that feature four players playing for a randomly drawn prize. Marinus played a $10 BLAST and after all four player registered the spinning wheel that determines the prize had a bit of fun with Marinus. One of the prizes available was a 2017 WSOP Main Event package. “It was spinning, my brother was sitting next to me, and it was like ‘Oh, we didn’t get it’ but then it shot back. So we were like ‘what?’,” said Marinus. The wheel in the center of the table stopped on the WSOP prize package spot. It took only a few minutes, but Marinus was suddenly making plans for a trip to Las Vegas. “I won that one against three other players. It was a bit of luck, I won a couple of hands that, statistically, I shouldn’t have won but that’s poker,” said Marinus, who decided to bring his brother with him on the 5,000 mile trip. “I actually got into poker because of my poker. He plays it more than me, he’s actually a little bit better than me,” said Marinus. Having never played live poker before, Marinus jumped into a couple of smaller tournaments at home. “I played two tournaments in Hollands Casino in the Netherlands to get a feeling for live poker, because I have never played live before in my life,” said Marinus, who admits to having sweaty palms now that he’s on to Day 2 of the Main Event. “I’m quite nervous, because I know that I’m that the level that’s here is much higher than I can play. I know that. I’m trying to keep telling myself it’s only $10, but it’s hard,” said Marinus. “Somewhere in the back of my mind, the min cash is $15,000 - for me that’s a lot of money. I played a $10 blast tournament and there’s a reason that I played for $10, my bankroll isn’t that big.” Joep has been on the rail, lending support and some advice for his brother when it’s needed. “I think it would have been better had he actually won the tournament, because he’s more experienced but he also likes it more than I do,” said Marinus. “I’m enjoying it, it’s a fun game, but because I’m not that experienced, it’s hard to enjoy something that you don’t really know.” Even if he doesn’t cash - he starts Day 2C with 22,800 - the 26-year-old knows he’s managed to experience something that he wouldn’t have otherwise been able to afford and doing it with his brother makes it even more special. “Being here together, it’s amazing. Staying at Vdara, for us that’s once in a lifetime, I think and that’s why I really enjoy the fact that I’m here,” said Marinus.
  22. [caption width="640"] The WSOP Circuit is heading to Argentina for the first time ever and 888poker can help you get there.[/caption] 888pokeris taking the WSOP Circuit to Argentina for the first time in August, with more South American events to be announced over the next few weeks. As part of 888poker’s ongoing partnership and exclusive sponsorship with the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, this exciting new event will take place at the Casino Iguazu in Puerto Iguazú, from August 2-8. Not only will there be the expected Main Event, but the popular Crazy Eights side Event will also be heading down old South America way. Large prizes and six WSOPC rings will be up for grabs. Itai Pazner, the Senior Vice President & Head of B2C at 888 Holdings, said the company is delighted to have renewed their WSOPC sponsorship, with the ongoing mission being to expand 888poker, and poker in general, to South America. “This renewed partnership is testament to our increasingly dominant position in the industry and our commitment to making live poker accessible and affordable to as many players possible, the world over,” he said. “We are very excited and proud to be bringing the most popular poker series in the world to the renowned Casino Iguazú, one of the most acclaimed casinos in South America. This is an amazing opportunity to be part of the world’s biggest and most prestigious live tournament, from as little as 1¢. I wish all our players the best of luck!” WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart also shared his enthusiasm. “We are thrilled to reach South America with this exciting event in Argentina,” he said. “We are optimistic the event will be well supported and we can continue to host bigger and better events each year”. The location chosen in Argentina seemingly couldn’t be better. Casino Iguazu is situated right on the Argentinian borders with Paraguay and Brazil, and it’s not short of sightseeing attractions. Players will be trying for a WSOPC championship just minutes way from the Iguazu falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. With the local attractions and tropical climate, it’s certainly not the worst place to bust out of a tournament. Ferando Bianchi, the Marketing Director at Casino Iguazu, said: “Casino Iguazu has been one of the most well-known entertainment centers in South America for more than twenty years. “Widely acknowledged as one of the leaders of amusement and sophistication at an international level, the luxury facilities are already in motion to welcome players who will battle for this chapter of the most important Poker Series of the planet”. As you’d expect, 888poker will be running multi-step satellite tournaments into the South American WSOPC events. And don’t forget, you could still win your way to Las Vegas this summer to take part in the Main Event. There are seven Steps satellites, starting from $1c, and a 2017 WSOP Las Vegas Main Event package worth $12,500 up for grabs.

  24. Of the 12 events on the Day 12 888poker XL Inferno, none were bigger than the $215 Quarterback. Thomas 'WushuTM' Muhlocker beat out the 587-player field to win just over $26,000 - the biggest single score on Thursday. That final table also included Adrian 'ADRI_ATM' Mateos. Fresh off of his PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker win, the Spanish phenom finished sixth for $5,892.62. Brazil's 'PudimSedutor' won Event #146 ($30 Deepstack Swordfish) for $4,011.86 and then final-tabled the Quarterback, finishing ninth for $2,079.75. He was one of two players to pull off that feat on Thursday. 'edtastylez92' won Event #144 ($109 Lightning Six Max) for $5,356 and then final-tabled Event #149 ($55 $60,000 R&A), finishing seventh for $2,471.62. Event #149 went to 'edyvpakistan' who took home $14,365.84 after outlasting the 618-player field. The 424 rebuys and 479 add-ons pushed the total prize pool to $76,050, well past the $60,000 guarantee.

  25. Day 6 of the 888poker XL Inferno series belonged to Leocir José 'LeoJoseCarne' Carneiro, who rose above the field to claim two victories on Friday. The first conquest for 'LeoJoseCarne' came in the $109 buy in Lightning Six Max event, where he won $2,589 as a result of a heads up deal made with Anton 'toshapiter86' Vinokurov. Carneiro followed that win up with his second victory of the day came in the $30 Deepstack Swordfish, where he won $3,158 for beating a field of 608 entrants. After falling short in the Lightning, where he finished second, Vinokurov rebounded with a win in the $30 Swordfish that was worth $3,325. The heftiest first place sum was won by 'BustiJauli' in the $150 Knockout tournament. 'BustiJauli' claimed $5,921 for first place along with $492 in bounties.
