"The Classic" events appeared at 888poker
In June, 888poker successfully carried out the Freezeout Series, which provided only freezeout tournaments. Events of this format have become very popular among the 888poker players. Two months later, the poker room decided to add regular freezeout events to its tournament schedule.
The freezeout tournaments are marked as "The Classic" in the 888 poker lobby, and they provide no possibility of re-entry and rebuys. The room will daily hold five Classic events, the buy-ins of which start from $5. Here are other important characteristics of these events:
- One table can feature 8 players.
- The blinds grow every 10 minutes.
- The $50 tournament is carried out in a progressive knockout format.
- Late registration lasts 70 minutes.
The last point is a major asset for players, as it is possible to register for the tournament in the last minutes of late registration and still enter the game with a stack of 30 big blinds.
Rake in the Classic tournaments is below 10%, which is less than in other events.
Classic Tournament Schedule
|12:30 pm||$10||$1 000||$0.80|
|2:30 pm||$25||$2 000||$2|
|4:00 pm||$5||$1 000||$0.45|
|9:00 pm||$100||$5 000||$8|
|11:00 pm||$50||$3 000||$4|
Each of the tournaments has various satellites. For example, you can qualify for a $100 Classic event through a $2.20 satellite, or spend just 1 cent for a qualifying tournament to get to a $5 Classic event.
New regular Classic tournaments are perfect for those who like freezeout format. Good luck at the tables!
