Another tournament´s menu of the classic 888poker´s offer. And, as all their promotion, it has a lot of free tickets for all their players, and good satellites to access the main event. Really, I think that 888poker is in this moment the best poker´s room ever, don´t you think? I only pray for this company never sale his product to a dark and mercenary group like Amaya (PokerStars).

I played in these freeroll games but it is very difficult because it is not easy to qualify for a tournament. This year 888 poker offered more opportunities to qualify for beautiful tournaments but 3 times i missed this chance but i was very close.

Well CALICUL, as you know, the volume win to the adversity (or variance). Specially in the freerolls, where you only have to have time to play. I`m trying to make some routine or schedule between my time of works (finally I returned Sad ), my time of sleep, etc., to play the marvellous free tournaments of 888poker. I know that these can't last long, so I try to take advantage of them Cool

Guys. My nickname BabangidaSS on poker888. Give me please 5$. I lost my bankroll=(

BABANBABKI, It is forbidden to ask for money on this site but you could play more freerolls there because it has in every day and you just have to hunt them down. In a few days with a little luck you can earn $ 5 or more. Don't forget about the free level games.

What a funny guy! It seems like a beggar of poker´s sites, but he don´t need a patch Big Smile Maybe a good business, if you catch a good number of samaritans also you will not need to play any! Of course, there would be a certain problem of dignity to be resolved, in case one cares! You might play freerolls or you can ofer a deal: you give me now $X, and I will give to you $X in X time...

Maragatero my friend, life is hard in Russia or in other places from this world. This site is a community and users know that no money is required here from other members. There are exceptions, of course but now he knows. It's important to be human and here is a regular person which is not.

Ramsemune, this site is only for english. I don't know if you helped BABANBABKI but you must to respect the rules. One is the language and the other is that no money is offered here. I wish you much success in 888 poker freerolls and good money.
