  1. [caption width="640"] WSOP Main Event Champion teams with 888poker headed into 2018[/caption] 888poker unwrapped one last gift this year when they announced that former World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Martin Jacobson is taking a spot as an ambassador for the online poker room. Jacobson joins an ever-growing team of top-tier pros and personalities, such as Chris Moorman, Dominik Nitsche, Vivian Saliba and Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot, with a mind for expanding not just the 888poker brand, but the tournaments and events the company is looking to provide. “888poker and I have a mutual interest to make poker great again in ‘taking back the game’,” Jacobson said, “888poker’s goal is to host prestigious events with huge guarantees affordable to anyone by providing a wide rage of buy-ins along with satellites to all tournaments.” While the popular opinion of whether poker is currently great or needs an infusion of greatness is up for debate, the talent of Jacobson is not. The Swede currently sits as the country’s All Time Money List leader and prior to his WSOP Main Event victory for $10 million - the second largest prize ever won in that event - he was long considered a pros pro with an enviable results list both live and online. “We’re super excited to be working with one of the best minds in poker as we embark on our shared goal of providing players all over the world with the best possible poker experience,” the company said. 888poker is starting Jacobson’s tenure off with a freeroll tournament open to any and all depositors. On December 27 at 21:30 GMT the $5,000 Martin Jacobson Welcome Tournament will run and not only will the World Champ be participating but the company has placed an $88 bounty on his head for whoever ends up with the bragging rights of having gotten to knock out the superstar. As far as giving back, this freeroll tournament is just a start for Jacobson who is a well-documented charitable donater to the Raising for Effecting Giving, the charity popularized by poker players. Moving forward part of Jacobson’s reasoning for teaming with 888poker is tied to hopes for the pair to find more ways to give back, not just to poker players, but to those in need. “888poker sees the importance in charitable contributions and are looking to integrate it as a standard fixture in all of their LIVE events,” Jacobson said. “This statement of intent is something I value highly and therefore I’m incredibly excited to come on board.” 888poker's ever-growing list of Live stops is expected to continue into 2018 after a successful season in 2017 that saw stops in London, Barcelona and Sao Paulo. Perhaps with Jacobson on board a stop in Stockholm may be in the cards. Wherever 888Live decides to hold their events, Jacobson has commented that he intends to be on the felt doing his best to create an optimal poker atmosphere for everyone in attendance. “I will actively work closely with the board and share my knowledge and experience from a player's perspective. This will contribute to a better experience for all the players, both regulars and newcomers.”

  3. It’s a New Year and with it comes a new season for the popular 888poker LIVE series. The online site has announced all the locations (and most of the dates) that it will be bringing its very own live tournament experience in 2018. All of the action begins on February 8 when 888poker Live returns to London’s Aspers Casino. The Kick-off Event features a €440 buy-in Main Event with four starting flights and heaps of satellites to help you get into the tournament for less. The London events are some of the most popular on the schedule with many of the 888poker Ambassadors attending. "I look forward to going back to London. I definitely look forward to playing in some of the juicy live cash games there," said 888poker Ambassador Dominik Nitsche. The line-up of Team 888, including the newly signed former World Champ Martin Jacobson, will likely be in attendance to many of the scheduled events not only to provide a warm welcome for players but to put would-be champions to the test. You don’t have to wait long after London before jumping right back in as you can follow the 888poker team to the Marriot Hotel in Bucharest, Romania on February 28. They are offering up a two-day €220 tournament that features a €50,000 guaranteed prize pool as well as a package to the future 888poker LIVE Local London event for the eventual winner. Then, just before the start of summer, 888poker LIVE visits the beautiful Barcelona for a festival at Casino Barcelona from May 23 through June 4. Last year, the tournament drew 609 runners and generated a prize pool of over €584,000. In September the crew makes its way once again to South America for 888poker LIVE in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The location and date have yet to be announced but you can be certain that poker fans in Brazil will be eagerly anticipating the stop with Haroldo Ferriera de Silva, the 2017 888poker LIVE Sao Paulo champion, looking to defend his title. As the year begins to wind down the tour hits their home base of the Aspers Casino for the final time on November 23 through December 2. Last year, this was the event that was the debut of the tour’s use of a shot clock. The integration was so well received, it will now be used in all of the tour’s Main Events as well as the High Rollers. Finally, players get to open a holiday gift early by booking their trip to Lisbon, Portugal for the final event of the calendar year on December 11-16 with the locations yet to be announced. In addition to the six 888poker LIVE events, the online site is a sponsor of both the World Poker Tour and the World Series of Poker. The brand will have a presence at the WPT500 event taking place at London’s Aspers Casino on April 1 as well as their own signature event during World Series of Poker, Event #62: $888 Crazy Eights - the four-flight, unlimited re-entry, 8-max tournament that guarantees a first place prize of $888,888. Additionally, 888poker is a main sponsor of the WSOP Main Event once again. The fun begins in London on February 8, but players can qualify for both the London and the Bucharest Main Events right now, online in the Live Events tab on the 888poker client.
  4. Day 3 of 888poker’s XL Blizzard online series brought with it some crazy good action. That's right, it was time for the signature Crazy 8 tournaments to take place and all three of the day's scheduled tournaments carried with it the now well-known theme. A carry-over from the World Series of Poker, the Crazy 8 tournaments are not only a way for the online poker site to incorporate their brand, but it’s used as a signature of a good value tournament. The trio of contests today offered just that, as all three beat their guarantees giving players opportunities for four and five-figure scores as well as XL Blizzard leaderboard points for those looking to head to the 2018 World Series of Poker on 888poker’s dime. Event #6 - $50,000 Crazy 8 The headline tournament of the day was the $88 buy-in $50,000 Crazy 8. Players flocked to register the tournament as 465 runners (and their 203 rebuys) pushed the prize pool to $53,440 - offering up a five-figure payday for the eventual winner. The only member of the final table not to earn a minimum of four-figures was ninth place finisher, PocketFiver ‘Ao1ing’. You may recognize this name by now as the Russian has been grinding out all of the XL Blizzard tournaments, making a final table in each of the first three days. This cash, along with a smaller cash in Event #8, ‘Ao1ing’ extends his lead on the XL Blizzard leaderboard, the top 50 of which gain entry into the Champion of Champions tournament. In addition to ‘Ao1ing’, a pair of PocketFivers found their way to the final table. Hitting the rail right after ‘Ao1ing’ was Peru’s Christian ‘recochi’ Altmann. The #3-ranked player in Peru received $1,068 for his eighth-place finish and the PLB points will help him inch closer to a career-high worldwide ranking for him. The UK’s Ben ‘DoobieFish’ Kett nearly made it to the end but bowed out in third place for $5,482. ‘Rekrutt1’ took home the XL title in this event, defeating Russia’s ‘Ksuna’ heads-up for $10,153 - the largest single prize of the day. For his second-place finish, ‘Ksuna’ will enjoy $7,481. Also, with 888poker is awarding each tournament’s bubble boy with a second chance tournament of their own, it should be noted that Canada’s ‘tcavallin’ made no money while finishing in 65th place, but still has a shot at a trip to the WSOP. Event #7 - $15,000 Mini Crazy 8 Smaller buy-in means more runners. The $8.80 $15,000 Mini Crazy 8 drew 1,665 runners (and a very apropos 880 rebuys) to help exceed the tournament guarantee by $5,360. ‘dankreas’ fell in 201st place, for the gut-wrenching title of bubble boy while Finland’s ‘NeveGiveUp’ stood by his (almost) namesake and closed out the tournament for $3,563. The PocketFiver added to his over $340,000 in lifetime earnings and he currently is sitting at a career-high in the Worldwide Rankings. Germany’s ‘bunder17’ finished in second for $2,545. Event #8 - $15,000 Late Crazy 8 Pocketfiver ‘msksevart’ and ‘Javierv10’ found their way to a head-up chop in the $44 buy-in $15,000 Late Crazy 8. ‘msksevart’ has made a habit of crushing 888poker events, coming in third overall on the 888poker 2017 leaderboard and claiming at least on XL Eclipse championship in September 2017. The pair outlasted the 313 registered players (and their 132 rebuys) to get to heads-up and both took home just over $3,000 for their deep run with 'msksevart' officially getting the win despite taking home $3 less at $3,024. PockerFiver ‘Am44nda’ joined ‘msksecart’ on the final table finishing in fifth for $979. ‘icf034’ will be given access to the ‘Bubble of Bubbles’ tournament, finishing first of all those who did not cash.

  5. The third in 888poker’s trilogy of XL Championships got underway on Thursday as the opening slate of tournaments on the XL Blizzard schedule took place. XL Blizzard promises 11 days of non-stop action and over $2.9 million in guarantees over the course of 34 events. In addition, 888poker is offering the opportunity for extra bonuses to players who rack up victories and in-the-money finishes. The top 50 of the XL Blizzard Leaderboard will gain entry into the Champion of Champions freeroll where, among other gifts, the top prize is a $12,000 package to the World Series of Poker. With so much ready to be won, the three events that took place on Day 1 drew large fields and each surpassed their guarantees. Event #1 - $80,000 Opening Event The excitement of the XL Blizzard series drew 667 entries to the $80,000 Opening Event, all hoping to be the first to punch their ticket to the XL Blizzard Champion of Champions event. The players pushed the prize pool to $94,600 which promised at least two players five-figure paydays in the process. PocketFives.com Triple Crown winner ‘Graftekkel’ turned himself into the first big winner of the series after ending up on top of a three-way battle that lasted late into the night. The grinder from the Netherlands adds $17,737.50 to his bankroll and the title of XL Blizzard Champion to his accolades. Finishing in second place was Ireland’s ‘123magmag123’ who took home $12,771 - good for the second highest XL Blizzard cash of the day. Event #2 - $15,000 Mini Opening Event The Mini Opening Event offered up the most affordable buy-in of the day at only $12, but the large field of 1508 entries turned it a large value tournament, promising the winner a high multiplier on their investment. In the end, ‘bygavuga’, ‘VyachesLove’ and ‘APCEBAT’, all who Russia their home, made a three-way deal. For the record, ‘bygavuga’ took home the win and $3,393.54 while runner-up ‘VyachesLove’ bagged $2,963.48. However, the third wheel in the deal, ‘APCEBAT’ ended up taking home only roughly $30 less than first-place money for his third-place finish. The fourth Russian at the final table was PocketFiver ‘Ao1ing’, currently the #25-ranked Russian player in the world. ‘Ao1ing’ finished his run in sixth place, and although he missed out on the all Russian chop, he did turn his $12 into a very respectable $969.22. Event #3 - $20,000 Late Opening Event The third event of the day, the $55 buy-in $20,000 Late Opening Event, drew 441 entries and pushed the prize pool to $30,800. In the end Malta’s ‘scellone94’ claimed the XL Championship when he defeated Germany’s ‘Charlymogo’ for the win and the top prize of $5,852. A pair of PocketFivers found their way to the final table as well. Anton ‘toshapiter’ Vinokurov finished up in eighth place for $693 and Brazil’s Muller ‘Matuks’ Mathias was the first to bust the final table, hitting the rail in ninth for $511.28. Bubble Of Bubbles Certainly ‘BtM4Ever’, ‘_FALCON_’ and ‘R.nahtanoJ’ were all disappointed today, as the three were the last players to finish without making the money in their respective tournaments. But all three "bubble boys" will all get a free entry into the “Bubble of Bubbles” tournament. The tournament offered as redemption for those who get oh-so-close to the cash only to fall short offers prizes such as free tournament tickets and even a $3,000 Crazy 8 World Series of Poker package.
