888poker Posted on Thursday, August 10, 2017 by "T".
For a good few hours on August 2 Wednesday, 888poker players were greeted with a surprise appearance of Flopomania in the real-money cash game lobby of the site. There was no prior announcement by 888poker about their newest game, and they never put up an introductory page of it on their site. Out of the blue, it popped up, with low to micro stakes game available.

So, players don't have to construct their opponents' preflop raising, 3, 4 or 5 betting, limping, calling, limp-calling, etc., ranges anymore. That's interesting. I guess players will be at an advantage if they possess extend reading skills in this unique game.

Posted by Mober: They are trying to get more players involved in the game, with less action for it. Less action, means less time, more games and of course more rake for them. Everything in their power to rake the most out of it
Are marketing strategies for these poker rooms to make a profit. There are plenty of opportunities created by them to succeed. Each man leads his business as he thinks or how it is learned by directors of marketing, managers or what names they have. It's good for them if they earn money and of course for lucky players

Well I do not know much about this since I'm not playing in 888poker but with the name it does not call me much attention, it implies that it's a mean game ugly but well it's my opinion only and I say that it is not yet Played so do not bother if I said something bad of the game haha

I personally do not like these new games I think the classic tournaments are the best Blast for example at 888poker 4 players are playing poker they are limited by time,buy-in 1 $ and the prize is almost always $ 2 I've never seen a bigger prize $ 2 + for 888poker of each game each new game brings more profits for 888poker
Posted by pochui: theoretically it will be a more fun game and I guess it's not a bad thing if you are just in the mood to spend a good couple of hours and not go against some sh1tty bot or super nit who will give you no action on you aces or even 26off. will be nice to see if this be a hit
For most of us the 'fun' part from poker is missing long time now. Not sure this will bring it back though.

Looks like they start a promotion called Flopomania on 20.08.2017 (that is this sunday). So this should be the planned starting date for this new format, unless of cause, we see new "leaks" bringing it earlier.
hmm, the whole flop mania thing sounds interesting to play SOMEtimes but not always, just another experience. of course you can play other things like omaha and what ever other games there are, but this is something personal. I will gives this flopmaniac a try and probably won't play it a lot, but just for fun. sometimes, you need some variance. or if you don't mind you can always stick to the same thing.

Oh well, there is only one thing you can do to get over it.... try again and this time try harder with a bit of practice. Focus and get better each time.

It is confirmed that this type of game will start tomorrow, sunday the 20th. Blinds and pre flop betting is removed. Everyone pays an ante and then the flop is dealt, and the game continues like a normal Hold'em hand would.
