888poker Cranks It Up with 2-Min BLASTs, $12k WSOP Prizes

How fast do you like your poker tournaments?

In the olden days of poker yore, tournaments took as long as they took. You had a buy-in, a set level for the blinds and everybody played however long it needed for on eplayer to gather all the chips.

The Internet era just can't be confined by those kinds of rules anymore.

With the advent of SnGs, Turbos, Hyper Turbos and Spin & Gos, just to name a few, online poker is now as much a timed game as it is a strategy one these days and and if you want to get a game in quick, you're never short of options.

If you've tried out the 888poker Blast SnGs you know that time frame was down to as little as 12 minutes to get a full tourney in.

Now that time constraint has got even shorter.

Up to 10,000x Your Buy-in

If you're unfamiliar with 888poker Hyper-Turbo Blast's SnGs, here's a quick primer:

The tournament starts as soon as four players are registered. Each players gets 1,500 in starting chips, the BLAST timer is set for 12 minutes and the countdown begins.

Play progresses as Turbos do - fast - until the timer runs out. When that happens, all the players left are automatically all in every hand until one player has all the chips.

That's the winner.

How much does the winner get? Well, that depends on the Multiplier that spins at the very beginning of the tournament and the buy-in (10c, $1, $5, $10, $15, $30, $100).

The multiplier varies between 2x and 10,000x your buy-in so it could, ostensibly, be quite large. Gigantic even. The multiplier also determines the blind structure for each BLAST Sit & Go.

From 12 Down to 2 ... and on to the WSOP!

As if the usual 12-minute structure wasn't already fast enough 888poker has, by popular demand, now introduced a spectacularly fast 2-minute option for BLAST SnGs.

The same starting chip stack and multipliers apply, as do the buy-in levels.

As 888poker is also the exclusive online satellite provider for the 2017 World Series of Poker, it's also introduced a special prize at the $10 buy-in level.

If you buy-in to a $10 BLAST SnG and hit the 1,250x multiplier, you'll be playing for a $12,500 package for the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event. That obviously includes the $10,000 buy-in plus travel expenses.
