If you participated in last months promo it has carried on your status to this month and next. Gl at Party if you decide to play there, they are by far the worst place to play in NJ.

Your right, all the options could be better. Id check the Party sponsored thread though if you dont think Party isnt the worst by a large margin. Im not going to go into everything on the subject here, not the right place, but it is very much the consensus that Party is by far the worst.

Re: 888poker USA (formerly Pacific Poker)

I agree Party is bad but the Omaha PLO & hi/lo are pretty soft and wide range of games. I've run $20 into $1000 on numerous occasions. SNG heads up or 6-max is the best way to go. I don't have hours upon hours to play online poker nightly.

Re: 888poker USA (formerly Pacific Poker)

What is the email for support? Really really odd that I can't find it anywhere on the website or in the software.

Does anyone have any history of getting a personal deposit bonus? I used to play 888 a while ago and raked pretty decently. I'd like to deposit again -- any chance of asking for a bonus and getting one?

Re: 888poker USA (formerly Pacific Poker)

Except it's completely inaccurate. You have the Sunday Weekly tournament guarantee listed as $35k. Why is that Sunday tournament back to being only $25k? This was the best part of the merger with wsop. Now that has been taken away and reset to what it was before the merger, and it looks like you are just merging player pools to hit your guarantees. Why is that tournament only $25k again?

This is only a temporary measure, the guaranteed prize money will climb back up gradually again.

There are no current plans for 888poker to operate in Denmark.

888 Rep, will there be any chance that 888 and WSOP will double the 25K guaranteed on the last Sunday of every month like partypoker's 100K guaranteed?

Re: 888poker USA (formerly Pacific Poker)

Is anyone else experiencing technical difficulties right now? My internet keeps going down in the middle of playing, but it's not my internet. When I close the site, the browser, other poker sites all work completely fine. The minute I load 888/wsop back up everything goes down again including the browser/other sites. Close 888/wsop again and it all works fine again immediately.

Re: 888poker USA (formerly Pacific Poker)

Does anyone else consider this cheating? 888 has a glitch in it's tournaments where late reg immediately ends if there are 3 people or less. Most tournaments only need 4 people to start and a lot have 0 people registered with about a minute to go before the tournament is going to get cancelled. Last second, the same 4 or 5 people are registering and just going allin and scooping entire prize pools that have guarantees that usually need 40-80 players to hit. I assume they are just splitting up the money and are all friends. Would this be considered breaking rules of the site?

It's not a glitch. It is in their rules that late registration ends when 50% of the remaining players get paid. Therefore, If a tournament needs 5 to start and 2 get paid, if it starts with 5 and soneone gets KO'D before a 6th person registers, registration ends.

Even so it not being a glitch you don't consider this cheating? 0 people registered with 30 seconds to go before cancellation, with 15 seconds or so left same 4/5 people register and all go allin on the first hand immediately ending the tourney and scooping the entire guarantee and splitting it up.
