has there ever been, in the history of mankind, a more artificially forced hype than the ''''''''''''hype''''''''''' 888 tried to create with flopmania ?

PS. New version screwed up with my hotkeys. Would you be kind enough to post a link to version p-1-en-4-7.3-1-10?
Just a small backstage security enhancement.

Thanks

I'm a Canadian player and I made my initial deposit with credit card and it's not a withdrawal option. The only option available is wire transfer which will probably be a hefty fee relative to my bankroll. If I make a small deposit with Instadebit will I be able to withdraw my balance to Instadebit after the payment clears?

**** right off! This is another game to punish good winning NLHE players! It is very similar to casino holdem, a ****ing casino game. Also your ambassadors can **** off as well.

Everyone pays an ante + no preflop = every pot raked. Surprised Stars didn't get there first.

The "wouldn't it be great if everyone limped preflop" advert for it was funny (though not sure if that was the intention), player in big blind really wants to play her 72 and gets upset when someone raises.

Welcome to 888poker’s Weekly Deal, with all the best news, results and insights from the past week.

THIS WEEK: August 20, 2017

It marked the second time this year Mordinov has won The Whale after taking the title on June 25th for $35,250. It’s also worth mentioning that earlier this week, Mordinov finished third in the Wednesday $12,000 Crocodile for $1,700.

It took 10 hours and 19 minute before the UK’s “icallyamet” beat out Austria’s “sally_os” to take the title and $15,400 in prize money. Just five days earlier, “icallyamet” won the $8,000 Swordfish for $1,617, and before thaton August 10th he finished runner-up in the Late Night Crocodile for $2,785.

After a little over eight hours, Russia’s “ILoveToPay” prevailed over “Jefffryyy” to win $5,375. It was another accomplishment on “ILoveToPay’s” poker résumé after he won both the March 16th Lightning for $3,243 and the June 10th Octopus for $5,375.

“saiyajin1337” Catches Lightning in a Bottle

The $109 buy-in, $20,000 GTD Sunday Lightning attracted 129 players who generated 75 rebuys. That created a $20,400 prize pool distributed to the top 18 players including Emil “Ejsenhoven1” Ohlsson (17th - $265.20), “Mr. Fonzi” (12th - $438.60), “alexxabest” (6th - $918), and Michael “AcesJoker88” Acevedo (4th - $1,734).

After “WAFAL” fell in third, Argentina’s “wklix” and Austria’s “saiyajin1337” battled it out for the $5,304 first-place prize. After 8 hours and 54 minutes, the Austrian came out on top to claim the title. Back on April 23, “saiyajin1337” topped a field of 323 players to win the Mega Deep for $23,575.

“Ezreaal” Claims Breeze Title for Lithuania

The $55 buy-in, $15,000 Sunday Breeze drew 372 players, and that created a prize pool of $18,600. Among the 54 players to earn a piece of it were Lightning champ “saiyajin1337” (54th - $93), “lyonsden6” (29th - $111.60), “Billy_Slater” (9th - $308.76),”HAPPYPOKER44” (4th - $1,488), and “IsaakidiAA” (3rd - $1,953).

After 7 hours and 43 minutes, Lithuania’s “Ezreaal” defeated Vietnam’s “TankeVicius” in heads-up play to win $3,569.34.

I cashed out because I were afraid of the AI-ban. Maybe I deposit a small amount and continue to play in september if no new player gets banned.

I don't find where I can select it to play in in my 888poker gui. I am using a very old version of 888 that still has the chat box in the left bottom corner... I hope that's not the reason because I don't want to update to that newer very ugly version with no chatbox.
