Tournaments & Freerolls
With buy-ins from $1 up to a few hundred, 888poker has a nice variety of tournaments. With playing options at any level among the loosest and juiciest out there, tournaments are fast, busy, and very loose. Even the bigger buy-in tournaments offer relatively loose play.
Apart from its crazy loose play, 888poker is also known for its Daily Challenge series. Buy-ins range from the $12+$1.20 rebuy ($10k guarantee) on Thursdays to the flagship $75+$5 ($50k guarantee) on Saturdays to the $100+$9 High Rollers event on Tuesdays ($10k guarantee).
All tournaments draw a very solid amount of players – the $30+$3 Deep Stack on Fridays ($15k guarantee, 5,000 starting chips) in particular offers great value and play. Also drawing a lot of traffic are the frequent qualifiers to big live and online poker events like the European Poker Tour, Aussie Millions and Irish Open.
888poker has some of the juiciest games online. However, the viewed-flop percentages at $15/$30 tables have dropped to about 65-70% (at best) from a previously whopping 85%.
Thanks to Casino-on-Net’s operations, there are many less-experienced poker players often with a sweet tooth for gambling. At peak hours, you typically find one or two full-ring games (10 players) with a viewed-flop percentage in the 50s or 60s. If you are looking to make a profit, the Omaha Hi-Lo tables are very good as well.
