    Dominik Nitsche wins WSOP Europe | Event #10

    Monday, November 6, 2017, 2:29 PM [General]

    The WSOPE €111,111 High Roller for One Drop attracted 132 entries and a total prizepool of €12,980,000.

    The charity event generated €977,768 (about $1,134,210) for One Drop.

    I started watching the live stream yesterday after I saw that #888Ambassador Dom (@DominikNitsche) was in the list of the 10 remaining players. I had thought he would do well in at least one of the WSOPE events after his 3rd place in Macau recently.

    I wasn’t disappointed at all, he was playing very well and hitting cards when needed, sometimes even when they weren’t.

    Keeping his strong poker face motionless against a constant barrage of questions and chat from other players he soon made the final table and looked determined to do well.

    There was a massive amount of tanking on the final table which made the stream a little boring at times but David Tuchman did his best to keep us entertained and it must have been hard work to solo the commentary. It is always easier when you have someone with you to bounce your comments off so I think he did very well.

    Tanking aside there were some interesting hands and play, a full replay of which can be seen by clicking here

    Some dubious (IMHO) face covering from was often seen, judge for yourself by watching the replay.

    After a very brief sit Charlie Carrel was first to depart the final table collecting €295,131. Martin Kabrhel was 8th (€366,762) Ahadpur Khangah 7th (€466,421) Christoph Vogelsang 6th (€606,694) Brighton based Steffen Sontheimer was the top UK players finishing 5th (€806,758) Thomas Muehloecker who was very entertaining went out 4th (€1,096,206) Mikita Badziakouski did well to take 3rd (€1,521,312) which left us with an all-German heads up.

    Dominik Nitsche v Andreas Eiler.

    Eiler had played very well and had certainly justified his place heads up but it was Nitsche who continued to hit when he needed, steal when he could and eventually grinded Eilers chips away to take his 4th WSOP bracelet. A huge hand was when Eiler was representing the hand that unfortunately for him Nitsche was holding. A costly bit of bad timing it seems.




    After a slight comeback, Eiler was again in an all-in or fold position when he looked down at Kc 9c, his all in was insta-called by Dom with Qd Th and as if the 10 on the flop wasn't enough the dealer kindly put a 3rd one out there on the river to ensure Dom's win and place in poker history and sending Eiler home with €2,155,418



    Congratulations to #888Ambassador @DominikNitsche for winning the €111,111 High Roller for One Drop and €3,487,463 and now joins the likes of Mike Matusow, Scotty Nguyen and Huck Seed who have also won 4 WSOP bracelets over the years.

    Wednesday, April 19, 2017, 1:08 PM [General]

    Welcome to the $7,500,000 XL Inferno Championships!


    Hot on the heels of our hugely successful Super XL Series, we’re back, BIGGER and better than ever with our XL Championships 2017. 
    Three separate XL Championship Series will run over the next year, kicking off with the XL Inferno:



     Check out the schedule here. 

    what's changed?

    In a nutshell? We’re going LARGE. Our Championships have been extended to 14 days of non-stop action – with a range of buy-ins suitable for ALL our players. 

    In addition, we’ll be massively increasing the number of events in each of our Championship Series, as well as the total guaranteed prize pool amounts. 

    Our Main Event Tournament in each Championship Series will continue to offer one of the largest prize pools in the industry, with a whopping $1,500,000 up for grabs. Not bad, ey?

    Chip in for Global Poverty!

    We’ve got some awesome special features this time round, including three exclusive tournaments where ALL fees will be donated to a worthy cause without impacting the prize pool. Buy-ins will, as usual, make up the guaranteed amount - so we’ll chip in, whilst you cash out! 
    REG (Raising for Effecting Giving) will be 888poker’s partner throughout this project and will help us ensure that all funds will be donated towards REG’s ‘Global Poverty Charity Portfolio’.

    YOU are the Champions!

    Following its success in the XL January Series, we’ll once again be running our Champion of Champions Event – and this time even MORE players will make the cut. 
    Instead of a Leaderboard, winners from each event will automatically be registered to the Tournament, which will award the top three players a once in a lifetime package to the WSOP 2017 Las Vegas. For more info, check out our Champion of Champions tab
    Stay tuned…

    The 2016 my.888poker Community Bash

    Sunday, October 9, 2016, 11:52 AM [General]

    Hey my888's

    It is just under 3 weeks until the 2016 Community bash gets underway so I thought I would share a few memories from previous years. 

    So far this year we have 30 members who say they will be attending but I expect the numbers to get to the normal 50ish before we kick off on Friday 28th October.

    The poker takes place at the Broadway Casino but the fun takes place wherever we end up, be it at the Hilton Hotel Broad street where most of us are laying our heads or at a local bar or restaurant.

    You can be assured of plenty of fun, chat and laughter over the whole weekend and even the odd cuddle Wink












    There are always prizes on offer including Ken's coveted "Teapot" which some jammy beggar won last year...



    Mind you the same guy won the "donkey" award for winning with the worse hand Tongue Out



    It would be the longest blog ever if I continued to post about just how great the atmosphere is at the bash so I will sum it up with a few more pictures. If the weekend gets a bit too much for you then we really don't mind if you take a short break from the festivities.





     
    above are my.888poker's "3 amigos"

    Below are 2 my888's sharing a beer and a smile.






    The casino staff are rather friendly Wink

    Always plenty of prizes on offer. 



     
    So get yourself along to the bash this year, all you need to do is post your 888 player name and when you are attending HERE  and make sure you have an active 888poker account and that your my.888poker account is in good standing.

     See you there my888's

    Team888poker's @DominikNitsche Wins BIG in Super XL!

    Monday, September 26, 2016, 12:07 PM [General]




    German-born Dominik Nitsche who now resides in Edinburgh has added to team 888's run of big cashes in 2016 by taking away over $200K in last night's 888poker's Super XL main event.

    Streaming the final table live on 888poker's Twitch channel Dominik was obviously having lots of fun talking to the stream followers and his Skype friends who were all rooting for him to take down the massive $295.800 first prize.

    It is always a pleasure to watch his unique style and now he is streaming we are able to hear the reasoning behind his plays and bet sizing. 

    You can expect some very exciting of play you can expect to see from the 3-time WSOP bracelet winner.



    You will be able to play against Dominik at the upcoming 

    London Festival October 13th -23rd
     
    All 3 remaining players agreed to a deal and the payouts were as follows.


     
    Just after the deal was done Dominik shoved with his pocket 5's and after getting called needed to win the flip against A8. 



    I suppose if you are going to get eliminated on 888poker it might just as well be with trip 8's Wink

    It is a great stream to watch and you can relive all of it HERE 

    Well done Dominik and the best of luck in London.

    Cryptic’s Blast Strategy

    Thursday, August 4, 2016, 6:08 PM [General]

    Cryptic’s Blast Strategy

     Firstly let’s get 1 thing straight, well maybe even 2 Wink

    1. This is how I play and it works for me
    2. I play 95% $1 games and 5% $5 games.

    OK let’s begin.

    As the games are split into various x prize pools I handle each as follows.

    I just want to add here that I treat these games like a value slot machine.
    With a slot if the spin doesn't give you a win thats that, with Blasts you do at worse have a chance to win twice your stake back every spin.

    Blast $1 445 $0.01 0.79 $3.50 $1.00 40 178/267

    X5. Now we have 2 places paid and a small profit for 2nd place so I tighten very slightly and will fold to raises unless I have a reasonable hand. Medium to big PP’s and big aces are still all-ins for me though. I have also won and placed in numerous of these games.X 2. we are at best winning twice the stake so I play very aggressively with any PP, suited cons or ace high. I just can’t see the point of playing the whole clock down to be gambling every hand anyway so better to take it down quickly if I can. I have won numerous of these.

    X10. 3 places get paid so I become very more selective in my starting hands but will still bully weak players with marginal hands. I don't get a lot of these but have cashed in all but 1.

    X100 and although not a massive amount the $60 for 1st is a great return so I tend to play like a normal S&G and tighten right up. I have only had 1 of these so far and managed 2nd for $25.

    Obviously the x1000 and x 10000 are a different ball game and I will be very selective with my hands indeed if I am lucky enough to get involved in one. They both pay 4 places so at least everyone gets a share. Smile

    1 thing to note is that you get players preselecting the fold quite often as they are playing a few at once so small raises can bring rewards.

    Good luck in your "Blast" games.

    Twitch, Twitter and a rising poker star

    Friday, July 8, 2016, 10:38 AM [General]

    Twitch, Twitter and a rising poker star

     

    We all see our Twitter pages full of the latest poker news from all over the world but what some of you might be missing out on is the great entertainment that can be found on Twitch.

    For a long time Twitch has been used to stream video games but its popularity in the poker world is growing fast and some players are helping promote some of the bigger poker sites and themselves there every day.

    1 player in particular has caught my eye over the last few weeks, his Twitter alias is @RustRockGaming and you can watch his streaming 5 days a week Monday to Friday on twitch.tv/rustrock 

    When I tuned in the very first thing I saw was this young guy with wild hair rubbing his nipples through his shirt while loud music was being played and I wondered what the hell was going on. It turned out to be the jovial way he shows his appreciation to his followers when they subscribe to his Twitch channel.

    It’s all part of his character and certainly adds to the entertainment while watching him play. His poker is entertaining too; he calls himself a “semi-fish” which actually sums up his play perfectly. Not scared to search for the odd card and aggressive in the right places I have had many hours of pleasure and endless entertainment watching Rustrock play and he even has some good quality music playing in the background.  I have played poker 9 years longer than Rustrock but I have learned a few things while watching him play the last few weeks.

    Who is Rustrock? Well he is a 28 year old from Slovenia and will be 29 on 29th July who lives with his girlfriend. His English is great and he has been playing poker for just over 12 months and until lately played mostly on Pokerstars. Since they removed their offerings from Slovenia he now plays solely on 888poker. He tells me that he enjoys playing and streaming very much but even though he has been winning constantly he has no immediate plans to give up work.

    He has had a lot of big paydays, several over $1K and more final tables lately than any other player I have seen in a long time. His bankroll management is very good and I think a lot of players could improve their game by watching him play.

    If you ever have time to watch a stream then Rustrock is defiantly the guy you need to watch. Go and follow him now on twitch.tv/rustrock  and join in the friendly chat.
