Interesting situation here about this 888 poker promotion, i think many players who register want to see numbers not go to need and then they get buyin back and play tournament. Of course not many chance this become real i think,

I do like these innovative suggestions and i think that these tournaments are going to be a great success. I cannot see them falling short of the expected prize pool but it will be interesting to see

This is not a very good strategy and i do not think this decision will attract players. The number of players who register in tournaments it's too small and late registration he brings a plus, but often the players does not equal the guaranteed prize. Something must be changed here and it would be good if there were more satellites in every day. Blink

In my honest opinion it won't be smashing anything anytime soon if they only offer this format for buyins 55 bucks and above. Most players are playing at levels waaay below that, it just doesn't make sense present this as a revolutionary tool.

yeah its not cheap for lot of players and this will not bring so many of them on this kind of tournament!they want to present something new for their players and something that you cant find on other poker sites,but I dont think that this is something so good!
better for them will be to change poker software and make something better from it,then this kind of promotions to offer!

So! Today is the BIG day when 888 Rake or Break hits the tables for its first session of big games. It certainly looks like a win win situation for players and a nice and innovative way for 888 to entice more players to the site. Looking forward to seeing how it all goes down, but won't be playing , even with the possibility of getting my buy in back.

Another new game, this time form 888poker.
The buy ins are not for many players though, since they are starting at 55USD
So there is a chance that the whole thing may not be successful .
Sunday today, so we are gonna have news for it real soon Smile

Yeah honestly I have no idea who is the target demographic for this move, I can presume their majority of players are not usually playing on buyin levels like these...

I dont see any news here for this new game.
Not that i was expecting many brm players to participate with these buy ins,
but you never know Smile
Arent there any freerolls with tickets, or any satellites for these games?
I wonder if they were successful and the target was reached.

in some situations poker sites behave like this and think that they are only there for bigger players with bigger amounts on their accounts!ofcourse there is always satellites,but thats not same,they should give more of this bigger tournaments with lower buy in!

Is not something satisfying because it is an absurd marketing decision. More than that, they have many disappointing satellites with 10 cents foar a $12 ticket where there are 20 players or maybe 25. I'm not happy with these tournaments Sad

Well they are not making the money from you playing micro buy ins, now and then.
So, why all their plans and they marketing decisions should be revolved, around
your tastes...
Not to mention that 888poker is making good promotions so far from what i have seen
in here. And im talking about promotions for the freerollers...

They are not making much money off microgrinders but at the same time those players also paying the rake everytime they register 4 a tourney or sit down to a cash table. Any normal room should not choose a preferred demographic to exclusively serve or they going to loose more players than they will gain in the end.
