888poker Introduces New Daily Tournaments

Written By: Maya Michaels | September 9, 2020 | Posted In Poker News

888poker has announced a new set of daily tournaments, called The Classic, that all run as freezeouts.

It is currently being tested out in the dot-com market, with the view of making it permanent if uptake is good. Since launch week, some guarantees have been altered, suggesting the operator is keeping a close eye on turnout.

“We decided to introduce a series of daily tournaments for buy-in levels from $5 to $100 offering classic poker tournaments, with really good, ‘pure poker’ formats,” the 888poker Executive stated, as reported by the Poker Industry PRO.

“While the guaranteed prizes of such tournaments are not going to be as high, we believe the format of these tournaments will have a real appeal for player,”  he added.

Altogether, The Classic will guarantee $12,000 across the five tournaments. Each tournament is run as 8-max event with no re-entry and features reduced rake of under 10%.

The Classic tournaments have rake of 8%, except The $5 Classic which has 9% rake.*

Players are able to late register for tournaments up until 70 minutes after the tournament starts. All players start with 30 big blinds regardless of late reg.

The $50 buy-in Classic is the only tournament that will play out as a Progressive Knockout (PKO) tournament.

Here are some of the features of The Classic:

  • 5 events run daily
  • Reduced rake
  • 8-max format
  • No re-buys
  • 30 big blind starting stacks
  • Late registration for 70 minutes

The Classic Tournaments:

Tournament               Buy-in            Guarantee

The $10 Classic            $10                 $1000 GTD

The $25 Classic            $25                 $2000 GTD

The $5 Classic              $5                   $1000 GTD

The $100 Classic          $100                $5000 GTD

The $50 PKO Classic     $50                  $3000 GTD

The Classic tournaments are currently live in the 888poker lobby.

However, The Classic is not the only excitement you can get over on 888poker, as the operator will be running the Millions Superstorm series starting on September 10 until October 11.

The online tournament series is guaranteeing $8 million spread across 480 tournaments, with buy-ins ranging from $5.50 to $530.
