This is the first (?) of many live poker games that are going to go online for the next few months.
This way you can still safely play the games and not go to all the headache of having live tournaments at this time.
Italy, Spain, the UK and the US are naturally more inclined to go that way with the trauma the Corona virus left there.
Good luck to the organizers and all the players.

I think that this announce is for the company entry to the european market, especifically in Italy, that have some rules that was banned some poker´s room to play there. Way 888poker have to make an asociation with another poker´s room if it don´t make a new start in that region? Well done 888poker, teh italian and spanish are really bored with Winamax and PokerStars!

Italians are very restrictive with poker in their country. They do not play with others from other countries. This thing is happening in Spain or France. It's not normal because it was good if we could play with everyone. Now the same will happen with this short alliance.

I don´t know antonis321, I think that this have to be some legal situation. I readed in some place that Europe, especially Spain and France, had making hard restrictions to play poker online, and they only allow to play (with the platforms that accept the rules and pay the expensives taxes -like pokerStars) to the people who lives in these countries. That´s why appear some xxx.es poker´s rooms

As long as the players have good tournaments to play and money to win, i don't see anything abnormal here. Italians can play good poker at any time because i had the opportunity to meet them a few times at tables and some of them are formidable.

I can see something that haven´t explanation...Why 888poker have to make an arregement with that Italian site? I think that they do it because is the only way to get contact with those players. And, thinking in the weight of 888poker as a poker´s room in the poker´s market, this situation only can happen if there are some legal restrictions for that.

yeah,maybe they dont have lot of players from italy,so thats why they make tournaments only for them!but in todays world,when everybody can play poker and lot of them are at home,you make tournament only for residents from one country!very silly!

Yes, it´s a strange mistery why they do it. And also is a mistery the new law that are be used in those countries. For example, they make some measure to force at the poker´s room to make playing only the people who lives there. But I make my register and played a lot in Winamax, (until they shut down all the freerolls) that was a room created only to Spanish and France people...

Every poker room has its own strategies and if it wants to offer free games it does, and if it doesn't want to then there will be no free games. Running players ( those who do wager ) are privileged in many things but if the camera does not make a profit then it cannot offer this kind of freerolls.
