888poker Expands Daily Tourney Line-Up w/ Great 8, Starfish

Share:

Want more daily poker tournament options on 888poker?

You got it.

888poker already has a wide variety of daily and weekly tournaments but, as you know in poker, there's always room for more.

So they've added something new. 

With two different GREAT 8 tournaments and even seven versions of the new Starfish, the 888poker tournament schedule has improved again.

$20,000 GREAT 8!

The GREAT 8 is an $88 NLHE Freeze-out running every day at 4 PM GMT. You get 8,888 chips to start with and blinds last 15 minutes.

Second-chance rebuys are allowed for four hours and there’s a guarantee of $20,000.

The tournament has been running for a couple of weeks and it’s always reached the guarantee -- sometimes even doubling and tripling it.

There's also a “mini” version of the GREAT 8 that runs with half the buy-in and shorter levels. And there's a a Late GREAT 8 that starts at 1 AM GMT that's clearly not directed at the European market.

It’s been received with warm welcome by the players and that includes 888 Team pros Parker “tonkAAAAA” Talbot and Dominik Nitsche, who have already taken stabs at it.

Fellow 888poker pro Chris Moorman even final-tabled it already and eventually took sixth place.

The Starfish

There was still some room on 888poker’s Fish’n’Chips schedule so they added a new tournament that comes in seven different variations.

It’s called the Starfish and it's a $22 No-Limit Hold'em tournament with guarantees up to $5,000. It comes with different level times, different starting times and different numbers of players at the table.
