Re: **The New and Official 888poker (ROW) Players' Thread**

Hi Rep,

I was looking through the bonus system in my account, and noticed that all my first depositor $1000 and $500 tournament tickets have already expired, despite my account not even being a month old. Why do they expire so fast? Also, I have level up touranment tix, but none seem to be running, when do they run?

Also, when I was doing this, I noticed that under my account details, my birthday is accidently I day before my actual birthday. I must have misclicked when I made my account. Is this going to be an issue when I go to withdraw? I've heard lots of stories of sites freezing funds and accounts over dumb things.

The level up games can be found in the Poker Club tab in the poker lobby.
Can I please have your poker user name?

I have sent this over for investigation but in future can you send issues like this directly to support@888poker.com and they will deal with them.

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

THIS WEEK: July 30, 2017

888poker Ambassador Parker “tonkaaaa” Talbot Ships Sunday Crocodile

While streaming on his popular Twitch channel, 888poker Ambassador Parker “tonkaaaa” Talbot had a heck of a day online, which included four final tables and a win in the Sunday Crocodile, one of 888poker’s premiere tournaments.

The $160 buy-in, $30,000 GTD Crocodile attracted 213 players, which created a $31,950 prize pool. That was paid out to the top 27 players including Sebastian “p000cket000” Sikorski (18th for $399.37), Doug “PulledPorker” Lang (14th for $479.25), XL Inferno Octopus champ “SoulRead88uk” (9th for $639), and “Ibeturaise2x” (3rd for $3,754.12).

After 9 hours and 19 minutes, Talbot emerged victorious over Greece’s “foldthedraws,” who earned a $4,952.25 consolation prize. As for Talbot, his win came with a $6,869 payday.”

All told, Talbot cashed for $14,000 on Sunday, and as he said on Twitter:

“WE BACK BOYS. I REPEAT. WE ARE BACK. 4 final tables today $14000 in cashes and a Crocodile ship. WOOOOOOO #888poker back tuesday for moreeee.”

“En|1ght” Bests Mike “D0nkeyKong” Bailey to Win Mega Deep

The $215 buy-in, $100,000 GTD Mega Deep, which features a new and improved structure, attracted 491 runners, of which 64 got paid including two-time XL Inferno champ “PokerMogo” (31st for $650), Troy “S.Janowski” Quenneville (18th for $870), and “jtbl2f” (5th for $5,000).

After “mustbez” and Michael “OneH1tWonder” Cano fell in fourth and third place respectively, Canada’s Mike “D0nkeyKong” Bailey and Russia’s “En|1ght” engaged in a heads-up battle. After 11 hours and 14 minutes, the latter prevailed to capture a $19,000 top prize.

Ravi “Boogleman” Shaymardanov Books Two Wins in Three Days

The $55 buy-in $10,000 GTD Sunday Monsoon easily surpassed its guarantee by attracting 305 players, which created a $15,250 prize pool. Among the 45 players to earn a portion of it were “BetShove” (42nd for $91.50), “IAmWelfare” (25th for $114.37), “E_Dub” (8th for $366), “n0sferatv” (7th for $518.50), and “vonBaranow” (3rd for $1,677.50).

In the end, Russia’s Ravi “Boogleman” Shaymardanov bested Hungary’s “HammHammm” in heads-up play to capture the title and $2,950.87 in prize money. It marked the second win in three days for Shaymardanov after he took down Friday’s $22 buy-in $1,500 GTD Deep Stack for $505.

WSOP Bracelet Winner Cashes Sunday Lightning

The $109 buy-in Sunday Lightning drew 175 players who accounted for 103 rebuys. That surpassed the advertised $20,000 guarantee by creating a $27,800 prize pool, which was distributed among the top 24 finishers. Among those to earn some cash were Michael “AcesJoker88” Acevedo (20th for $264.10), 2016 Super XL Series Main Event champ “Gr33nApples” (14th for $347.50), and Chris “NigDawG” Brammer (8th for $834).

Brammer is barely a moth removed from topping a field of 505 players to win the 2017 World Series of Poker Event #45: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em for $527,555 and his first gold bracelet.

After just over eight hours, the title came down to Russia’s “powerpoke99” and the UK’s “pketazezbaby.” The latter ended up coming out on top to capture a $6,672 top prize. Back in March, “pketazezbaby” finished runner-up in the $20,000 Saturday Challenge for $3,309.

“LeshiyAS” Turns $30 Swordfish Buy-In Into $5K Prize

With 1,018 players, the $30 buy-in $25,000 Deepstack Swordfish surpassed its guarantee by creating a prize pool of $27,995. Among the players to go deep were XL Inferno Eent #197 champ “Mindcrushers” (32nd for $109.18), “Jishington” (18th for $153.97), “Scampi76” (7th for $839.85), and “firefish” (3rd for $2,687.52.

After a marathon 11 hours and 15 minutes – remember, this was a deepstack event – Estonia’s “LeshiyAS” bested Croatia’s “UNSTOPPABLE1” to win $5,039. It’d been a long time since “LeshiyAS” graced the top of the payouts. In May 2015, he came out on top of a 152-player field to win the $25 buy-in $2,500 GTD DeepStack for $771.42.

One thing is for sure, “LeshiyAS” knows how to turn a small buy-in into big scores.

What to watch out for:

sport, your play isnt capped by the ''be active'' as much and its much easier to get points. you should play a mix of both if you want to climb

Is there and a 3rd or 4th kind of client?

and how fair is to provide more than one client to the players,with different and unknown,for the most players, properties?
thanks

Dont worry m8. Nothing is going to change. Its normal situation for 888. Some bots are banned some are still playing. Some players use hud on snap tables some dont. 888 dont care about this. They can easily ban innocent player for artificial intellect while bots and scripters freely continue playing.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker (ROW) Players' Thread**

Hello rep. Can you help me with cashing out?
For example, I want to cash out 100 dollars. My 888 account currency is in dollar(also at the backend now, hahalolfun) and my bank account is in euro. So 888 will charge me a currency fee if I cash out with USD to my EUR bank account. How much is this fee exactly, for 100 dollars?

Now I also have the option to withdraw to my USD neteller account, which I used to deposit and duck the EUR to USD deposit fee. Which works, at least when I deposit with neteller I can avoid one fee.
But when I want to cashout I will have to bend over deeply again, because neteller asks 7.50 EUR to get it from them to my dutch bank account, this is not a problem for a larger cashout. But I will also have to pay 4% over the whole sum to get it out of USD neteller into my EUR bank account. For 100USD this is a 11.50 fee. 11.5 percent...

So my question, for how much is 888 going to let me bend over if I want to get let's say, 100USD, directly from my 888USD account to my EUR bank account?
How much percent.. How much USD?

I'm going to try to cash out with neteller and then deposit to partypoker and use partypoker to exchange to duck the neteller fees. Probably will just move my whole bankroll there and just play there.

Your fees feel scammy and are extreme, so I rather avoid them. Such a bad experience, feels like a prison cashing out.

888 rep, webcams have been down for days, when people ring up support say there is no problem and says they are the first to report the issue. Ridiculous when they clearly don't work for anyone.

I am really shocked by your email. I am new unexperienced player who is playing microstakes and trying to climb up the ladder in the world of poker. I really dont know what artificial intelligence you're talking about as the only softwares I use at all are Holdem manager and Equilab and still am learning how to use those two properly.

I am new at poker and I am doing everything the legit way on every site I have played so far. I would never violate any of rules as I'd rather not play on the site if it doesn't suit my needs.
Please try to clarify more on what is going on and why would you confiscate my bankroll without any warning?!

I was in total shock when my girlfriend and me received the same email earlier today.
Through the day I tried to rationalize to myself what this could be about but there was no logical explanation why your email would be so threathening and harsh as I've never violated any of your rules written in terms and conditions (would certainly never try) and never recieved any warning for anything.
The only logical explanation for this would be your concern as my girlfriend and me both play on your site using the same IP address as we live together so this might be the security issue but we never played on the same tables, even on the same limit as you could easily verify with your data.
She plays microstakes (NL10 and 20) as is new to poker and I am playing higher stakes (NL50, 100, 200).

I will repeat again, we never violated any of the rules and ethical principles of your site and any other site not will ever try.

I am in poker for 8-9 years now and was never involved in any shady business on any of the existing poker sites, forums, poker coaching and discussion groups as I consider poker my job and am acting to other players, opponents, poker sites and game of poker overall very professionally.

Regarding AI that you're accusing me of, the only software that I use while playing is Holdem manager which your site allows as far as I know, and the software I use when studying is PioSolver. So, these two are allowed on almost every site and are used by vast majority of regular players, and most certanly no site is confiscating bankrolls for that.
(Especially without previous warning!)

So, could you be so kind and explain me what is going on as your support doesn't offer any explanation so far.
I just hope this is a huge misunderstanding and everything will be settled soon.

I just started to play on 888 poker, i regulary play medium and high stakes on microgaming(MartaIMrko nickname), on ipoker(MartaIMrko1) for couple of years profesionally, never ever had any problems. I was at shock, and I don't undersand how this can happen on one of bigest poker sites? Just locking account, without any evidence, without any explanation. I'm just hoping you will settle this asap.
I sent these over to be reviewed.
Thanks

The rash of account closures and everyone crying foul is more than a little disconcerting. I'm not expecting you to release details of your investigations but can you answer this question clearly and without ambiguity: If I use HM2 and 888Caption is my account going to be closed with funds confiscated?
