  1. The 888poker Millions Superstorm online series came to a conclusion on Sunday night when 888poker ambassador Dominik Nitsche bested a total field of 3,196 runners in the $1M guaranteed 888Millions Superstorm Main Event to take home the $121,146 first-place prize. Nitsche, who was celebrating his 30th birthday, spent the day battling through the 567 players who managed to survive the opening flights of the event and make it to Day Two. By the time the final table got underway, the high-stakes pro had faded the majority of the field but found himself with fewer than seven big blinds. Despite that, he stayed out of trouble in the early parts of the final table and eventually eliminated his final four opponents to walk away with a six-figure score. After a few orbits at the final table, Lithuanian grinder ‘joolius’ was the first player eliminated. After ‘Artemka168’ opened holding [poker card="kc"][poker card="kh"], ‘joolius’ moved all-in for his remaining 15 big blinds with [poker card="jc"][poker card="js"]. ‘Artemka168’ made the quick call and the pocket kings held when the board ran [poker card="9h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="2c"][poker card="6c"][poker card="ac"]. ‘joolius’ exited in ninth place for $15,000. After ‘GarbinaD’ opened from late position with [poker card="ah"][poker card="js"], Brazil’s ‘franguet’ made the call from the big blind with the [poker card="ad"][poker card="7d"]. The flop came [poker card="ac"][poker card="8c"][poker card="2c"] and Rocha put in his remaining short stack with top pair and was called by ‘GarbinaD’s dominating ace. The turn was the [poker card="9h"] and the river came the [poker card="kh"] sending the Brazilian out the door in eighth place for $20,000. It didn’t take long before ‘dulek_jason’ hit the rail as well when he pushed his final seven big blinds in the middle holding [poker card="5c"][poker card="5h"] and was called by ‘Artemka168’ in the big blind with [poker card="kh"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="ts"][poker card="7s"] flop kept ‘dulek_jason’ ahead in the hand but offered ‘Artemka168’ some additional straight and backdoor flush outs. The [poker card="6h"] gave ‘Artemka168’ even more opportunities but it was the [poker card="9c"] river than brought ‘Artemka168’ the straight and eliminated ‘dulek_jason’ in seventh place for $25,000. Minutes later ‘GarbinaD’ was involved in another elimination when they raised their [poker card="kd"][poker card="js"] from early position and ‘DreamLikeMe’ called with their tournament life on the line with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="qs"]. The board ran out [poker card="5c"][poker card="7c"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3d"][poker card="jc"] giving ‘GarbinaD’ a pair on the river and sending ‘DreamLikeMe’ out in sixth place for $30,000. Nitsche got to work five-handed when he put in a raise from the cutoff with [poker card="ad"][poker card="3d"] and the short-stacked ‘kiskutya23’ made the call for it all with [poker card="ks"][poker card="5d"]. Nitsche hit his ace right away on the [poker card="5s"][poker card="ac"][poker card="6d"] flop but ‘kiskutya23’ also had a pair and some additional two pair and trips outs. But the [poker card="9c"] turn and the [poker card="th"] river did nothing to help ‘kiskutya23’ and they fell in fifth place for $45,000. The final four players began to talk about a deal as the original payouts had a steep increase with a $100,000 difference between second and first. It didn’t take long for all the players to agree to an ICM deal with $20,000 left for the eventual winner. Nitsche began four-handed play as the short stack but found a critical double that kept him alive and it started him climbing the chip counts. He picked up another major pot when ‘MrMarley83’ made his last stand by shipping [poker card="ad"][poker card="2h"] under the gun and Nitsche made the called with [poker card="as"][poker card="th"]. The board ran out [poker card="ac"][poker card="qd"][poker card="5h"][poker card="jc"][poker card="7d"] to give Nitsche top pair with a better kicker. Canada’s ‘MrMarley83’ finished in fourth place for $80,551.47, more than $20,000 than the original posted $60,000 prize for fourth place. Nitsche took over the chip lead and quickly took out another player when he limped on the button with [poker card="ad"][poker card="tc"] and was shipped on by ‘Artemka168’ who held [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"]. Nitsche made the call and saw the bad news that he was dominated. But the [poker card="td"][poker card="6h"][poker card="5d"] flop flipped the script and with his pair of tens, Nitsche held on through the [poker card="3h"] turn and the [poker card="jc"] river. ‘Artemka168’ walked away in third place with a $106,193.93 score. The final hand of the tournament saw ‘GarbinaD’ move all in with the shorter stack holding the [poker card="kd"][poker card="tc"]. Nitsche made the call with his [poker card="ah"][poker card="9d"]. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="9h"][poker card="9c"] looked bad for ‘GarbinaD’ as it gave Nitsche trip nines. But the [poker card="jd"] turn brought in the straight for ‘GarbinaD’ and Nitsche left to look for an ace or the board to pair to win it all. It did just that when the [poker card="qd"] hit the river awarding Nitsche the pot and eliminating ‘GarbinaD’ as the runner-up and a payout of $112,609. With a little luck on his birthday, Nitsche pulled out the win and walked away with the $121,146.01 first-place prize to add to his more than $6.3 million in career online earnings and his $18.6 million in career live earnings. Final Table Payouts Dominik ‘888Dominik’ Nitsche - $121,146.01* ‘GarbinaD’ - $112,608.59* ‘Artemka168’ - $106,193.93* ‘MrMarley83’ - $80,551/47* ‘kistkutya23’ - $45,000 ‘DreamLikeMe’ - $30,000 ‘dulek_jason’ - $25,000 ‘franguet’ - $20,000 ‘joolius’ - $15,000

Each Day 1 flight runs through the end of Level 11 or until just 15% of the field remains. Surviving players advance to Day 2 on Sunday, March 22. [ptable zone=“888poker”][ptable zone=“Party Poker NJ”][ptable zone=“Global Poker Article Ad”] There are 25 Day 1 flights in total, including two on March 3, 8, and 15.

To avoid an overlay, the events will need a total of 10,870 players over the course of those 25 Day 1 flights. Satellites Galore While the $100 buy-in is meant to make this affordable for a wide-range of poker players, there is a robust schedule of satellites offered as well and it takes just a single penny to get started. The $0.01 "Pennybuy" event is the first step and awards top finishers with seats in the $2.20 Sub-Satellite.

  3. Just when you thought the major online poker series was winding down, 888poker has announced the return of their Millions Superstorm, the biggest series in 888poker’s history. When 888poker says big, they mean it. The month-long event boasts $8 million in total guaranteed prize money spread out over an incredible 480 events. All of the action kicks off on September 10 and 888poker will be making it rain all the way until Sunday, October 11 when the $320 buy-in Millions Superstorm $1,000,000 guaranteed Main Event takes place. With so many events and so much to play for, players at every buy-in level can find a way play for a piece of the $8 million. At the same time, with so much taking place on 888poker there are a few specifics that every player should know about. The Main Event An entire month of 888poker online action will culminate in the $320 buy-in $1,000,000 guaranteed Main Event. As with most of 888poker’s biggest events, there are plenty of ways for players to get punch their ticket.

Also, if things don’t go well in a first attempt, players can jump into multiple Day 1’s to ensure they have a stack in the finale. Of course, buying in directly is always an option. But if a player is looking to take their shot for the minimum, 888poker is continually running satellites to the Main Event. Players can work their way up a super satellite tree to win their way into the $320 tournament for pennies. It may be a tough grind, but players who have the time can find exceptional value jumping into the satellite tree in the early stages and winning their way up. Additional Bonuses Some players are going to be lucky beneficiaries of 888poker’s $1 million giveaway. Over the course of the month, 888poker is literally handing out $1,000,000 worth of cash bonuses, tickets to special events, and even seats to the Main Event. At the same time, there are three $1,000,000 BLAST prize pools in the mix.

Massive Schedule In addition to the Main Event and the million-dollar giveaways, 888poker is spending the month offering its brand of high-value tournaments.
