blast poker 1

Got six minutes?

That’s enough for the new ultra-high speed Sit-and-Go game 888poker is now offering with a maximum jackpot of up to $300,000.

If you like epic battles, thin value bets and players stalling long enough for your screensaver to activate, grab a large coffee and go to the poker tournament strategy section of PokerListings.

BLAST is not for you. BLAST is fast; BLAST is furious. No breaks, no deals. And you can get in the game for as little as 10 cents.

4-Max Super Turbo Sit-and-Go

BLAST is a 4-Max No-Limit Hold’em tournament with 2-minute levels. 

Before any BLAST SnG begins, a multiplier determines the size of the prize pool. The maximum multiplier is no less than 10,000.

That means that if you play the lowest buy-in level of 10 cents you can still play for a solid $1,000.

If you go for the highest $30 buy-in, the prize pool can be a massive $300,000.

You’ll get between 6-12 minutes to play.

There's a timer up in the top corner of the screen to count it down.

If your table hasn’t finished when it hits zero, it’s all-in for everyone until it's over.

Multipliers and Prize Pools

Every BLAST Sit-and-go has 4 players. Every player gets 1,500 chips. Every SnG starts with 25/50 blinds.

The level times are always two minutes, but the number of levels depends on the multiplier that determines the prize pool - the higher the multiplier, the more levels.

The minimum number of levels is 3 and the maximum is 6.

Every tournament ends with an automatic all-in of every player every hand, until one player has all the chips.
