Interesting tournament series this time from 888poker, for me personally it is not many tournament where i can buyin with money because too much to me, maybe this last event micro main event for 5.50 buyin. But good to see satellite tournament of good prices

That $250/$500k gtd toruney is looking quite like fools gold to me - I mean with that structure is quite the opposite of affordable/great payout. Dunno. Sunday Million still better bang for your buck.

These kinds of series are always very welcome for the smaller buy in players and this looks like it will be very popular. I often try and win one of these satellites but it has never happened but i will keep on trying!!
 CALICUL15/03/2019 11:01:42 GMT
The satellite strategy for these tournaments is not a very good one. Their structure needs to be changed to be better for the players. Static construction is not good and must be changed with a mobile one. It is necessary to do so, to qualify as many players as possible. This would be more successful.
 Nightkid15/03/2019 12:27:21 GMT
Well for what I see, they keep getting involved in the promotions and the truth is that it is very good: D so that more people attend, besides that they never have a new attraction to wake up a bit ... so come and give them Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!
 pajalnick15/03/2019 13:55:36 GMT
I received two tickets to the Satellite of these major poker tournaments ... but there were a lot of players there ... And so I could not get a ticket to the main tournament ... but it was clear ... they are now offering a task to get new tickets .... If only by chance I perform these tasks
 damosk16/03/2019 08:07:01 GMT
The one thing that a promotion like this from 888 means is that there will be loads of recreational players getting involved and from whom one can start to try and make a profit if you use your skill and patience. Patience is definitely the thing in these promotions, along with positive and aggressive play.
 Mober16/03/2019 10:48:22 GMT
Another good series of tournaments, this time from 888poker.
And they are going to have satellites starting from 1 cent.
Not easy to get a ticket like that, but many will try their lucky, getting
a big ticket for almost nothing.
Good luck to all the ones, that will be playing there.
 CALICUL16/03/2019 11:02:10 GMT
I have not received any free tickets for XL Blizzard, even if i checked my email. Instead, i received other email and here 888 poker say something about the technical issues that affected their sites. If i had difficulty receiving a bonus, please take the process back and try to claim it again. I tried but it did not work to receive these tickets. In return to compensate for possible inconvenience, we invite you to attend FREE $ 10,000 Crazy Sunday Freeroll. In other words, i did not get anything because this game is freeroll and my XL Blizzard tickets are evaporated because of technical issues. Disagree
 Nightkid16/03/2019 13:51:21 GMT
another time more promotions from poker888 are full nose if they are doing competitions with partypoker but it seems that they play to see who gets more or better promotions this year hahaha but that's good because there more options for new players and for others like Blink Blink Blink
 Mober20/03/2019 12:37:40 GMT
The more promotions and tournament series are running, the better for the players is.
Besides it keeps the competition up and running, it gives more choices to all
the players that are professionals, or making a side income by playing poker.
It is a win win situation for the players Smile
 Nightkid20/03/2019 17:23:01 GMT
If I think you need more pormociones from several, and thus open more competition and people are not going to go over there more offers or promotions, because almost all are now games that you have to pay to stay untill you do not know what to do ... Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!
 Mober21/03/2019 13:16:00 GMT
No site can survive by giving free promotions over and over again.
They are giving away money with freerolls, tickets for tournaments etc.
But somehow they need to get back, at least a portion of the promotions they are having.
After all it is a business, and their purpose is to make money, not to please everyone
by giving them away free cash Smile
 pajalnick21/03/2019 15:48:36 GMT
Today I turned the wheel in the 888 poker client .... I won the satellite ticket of these major tournaments .... last time 2 tickets I could not achieve any achievements .... maybe this ticket will help me to qualify .... and play in one of these major tournaments ... Well, of course it's very difficult .... very many contenders
 damosk22/03/2019 10:26:15 GMT
I have just found the promotional offer email for this XL Blizzard and have claimed my two free tickets to the qualifiers. This means that once I have played one i will start receiving daily tasks to earn more tickets. A little disappointed i didn't get the email sooner and have lost about a week of play here. Good luck to you all in this promo.
 dule-vu22/03/2019 13:43:36 GMT
they maybe give lot of promotions and tournaments with lower buy in,but they must something with their software and mistakes that they have so often!from time to time they have some bug or hacker attack and thats not normal!they must change their poker software!
 Mober27/03/2019 14:02:22 GMT
Everyone gets annoyed when a software doesnt work as it should.
But if you are making money in the specific site, you just turn your eye the other way Smile
Glitches and bugs happens everywhere. Something regular you can say.
And now when it comes to attacks, thats another story.
 CALICUL30/03/2019 11:43:53 GMT
These series tournaments are very good for all players even for fish or amateurs because they are in ,,another format'', where you can make money much easier, than in regular tournaments. I played a few tournaments from certain series and i really enjoyed playing with that kind of people because they are not regular and do not know your style too well. In this way you can make stack in a easier way if you are a smart boy. In the end you can do something good for your pockets... Smile
 Nightkid30/03/2019 12:31:30 GMT
I really believe that the only one that I could use the bonuses without deposit was like 2 years ago in pokerstars because in others I could never and I do not know because hahaha but good sometimes I do not have the time to walk around watching everything but it goes away to do Angry Angry Angry
 CALICUL31/03/2019 11:45:30 GMT
Because of the lack of time you can not always look bonuses and promotions but you can play a lot of satelittes with little buy-in. These blizzard tournaments series are as good as possible. I like this genre of tournaments and if i qualify for major tournaments it will be very good. Smile
 maragatero02/04/2019 23:51:13 GMT
Yesterday I tried to play with one of my tickets to XLBlizard, and when the tournament was starting, the poker client disappear! I tried to open again and a message said that the program was updating. So, I restart the computer to try of recover it...but windows decide to actualize! When I could open the tourney again, I was UTG with a half of blind Angry Angry Angry
 CALICUL06/04/2019 12:11:28 GMT
I know my friend, i know. The 888 poker room can not control very good this system and when errors occur games are broken. We have to accept this up to a point, now depends on how much money you have invested in a game. I hope we do not miss big or huge opportunities when their software has problems. Blink
