Simply play Cash, collect Redbacks and qualify for either an 8- or 32-player Freeroll tournament, and then bag a package. Each Freeroll will now also have €250 in cash prizes, so there’s plenty to play for!

32KCashDrop_Blog_588x300

Our €32K cash Drop is up and running, so players are advised to enjoy maximum fun at cash tables in order to make the most of this promotion, which runs until 21 August.

With €5 ‘dropped’ randomly into cash players’ accounts every five minutes(!) until €25,000 is given away, there’s plenty to play for and, as we always like to do at 32Red Poker, we’ve thrown in the added thrill of a €5K Leaderboard to spice up proceedings.

Each time you’re rewarded a cash drop (which goes straight into your account and is available for immediate use) you receive a point towards the Leaderboard, which boasts 275 cash prizes, with €500 going to the eventual winner. And there’s more – whoever occupies the top spot at the end of the promotional period will receive a special bonus prize in the form of a fantastic, all-inclusive €1,500 package to a MPN Poker Tour event, while the runner-up will win a €550 MPNPT seat. With the Tour taking in venues that have thus far included Vienna, Sofia and Tallinn, and Morocco playing host in November, these prizes are well worth fighting for!

VIEW LEADERBOARD

 

At the time of writing the Leaderboard is taking shape, with gradus40 and SannyW leading the challenge with 3 points each, 17 players hot on their heels with 2 points and a further 155 making their presence felt after securing a point. All of these players have at least once been the recipient of a €5 cash drop, so join them in the quest simply by having fun at our cash tables, pick up some free cash and battle for the extra prizes. You can keep up to date on your progress by checking out the Leaderboard’s morning updates.

Enjoy your time playing cash games, and good luck!

Blaze of Glory

May 19, 2014 by  
Filed under News

If you haven’t tried Blaze Poker yet, you’ve been missing out! The point behind this nifty format is the so-called ‘Quick Fold’ facility. Clicking on the Quick Fold button automatically folds your hand without waiting for the play to reach you, and then automatically sends you to a brand new table, with a new set of hole cards, and a new set of opponents. This means there’s no waiting for play to come around to you and, when you have a trash hand or simply don’t want any further involvement in a pot, you can get straight into a new hand immediately. Over the course of a typical session of poker, the Blaze version allows you to get the most out of your time.

Maximising your time at the tables means more hands per hour, and more hands per hour, of course (even without multi-tabling), means being able to fully take advantage of our excellent 30% Rakeback deal.

Add to this the fact that this format also helps maintain a higher level of solidity compared to the standard format where we tend to be less patient and thus a little looser than we’d like to admit, and Blaze Poker is a noteworthy alternative to the traditional online experience. Knowing that it’s possible to immediately start a new hand certainly makes it easier to get rid of bad habits!

Play on our Blaze Poker tables now and take advantage of the Blaze of Glorywe’re giving away €500 in cash prizes and an exclusive freeroll, every week!  Check out the dedicated leaderboard that keeps track of the Redbacks you earn on Blaze tables from Monday to Sunday. If you manage to finish in the top 12 you’ll receive a share of €250, while simply making it on the leaderboard (minimum 100 Redbacks) is enough to earn free entry to our weekly €250 Blaze of Glory Freeroll.

Good luck at the Blaze tables, and with Blaze of Glory!

February’s €2,000 Freeroll Fight!

February 9, 2012 by  
Filed under Featured, News

Unlike today’s watered down boxing contests, fights of old would be long, drawn-out marathons. 32Red Poker’s exclusive ‘€2000 Freeroll Fight’ harks back to that golden age, with 20 gruelling rounds taking place during February, a tournament being held each weekday night at 8.30 UK time. Of course these freerolls are held in the arena of online poker, so we don’t have to be punched by a Klitschko brother to qualify for the final…

With the numbers taking part in these €50 added freerolls it will indeed be an achievement to survive February to still be standing as the 32-player Main Event gets underway. This will be on Wednesday 29 February (again at 8.30pm UK time), with the finalists having 5000 starting chips (no rebuys or add-ons) and 12 minute blind levels, as well as a guaranteed prize pool of €1000.

Although free to enter, the format has been spiced up a little so that it’s possible to beef up your campaign to maintain a place at the top of the leaderboard by spending pennies on additional chips. With the big fields and the fun factor to take into account, the starting stack of 1000 chips could well be quadrupled within minutes of the first hand being played, but if you feel like packing a bigger punch right from the opening bell, then it’s possible to (re)buy 2000 chips during the first hour for €0.25, while there is also a 5000 chips add-on for only €0.50 at the end of the first break.

The scoring system is simple: 500th place in a 500-player tournament earns 1 point, 1st place pockets 500 points, and so on. Racking up points will depend on how many tournaments you play, but clearly a big result will help shoot you up the table.

Good luck all!

No Limit Tournaments: Final Table Strategy

November 1, 2011 by  
Filed under Angus Dunnington, News, Poker School

Following our feature about cutting a path through freeroll (and general) multi-table tournaments, here are a few reminders about how we might – should we survive that far – handle the final table.

Obviously, as the tournament progresses, what will have started as a patient approach during which we concentrated on good hands and position will have gradually stepped up in pace (along with growing blinds and a decrease in players), so that we were willing to get involved with a wider ranger of hands, and not necessarily limiting our aggression to late position.

Ideally we also made a point of exploiting other players’ fear of missing out on the paid places as the bubble approached, while at the same time avoiding big, unnecessary confrontations against anyone who could knock us out of the tournament.

The problem for inexperienced players (indeed most players) who find themselves sitting at a final table is having to readjust to the dynamics and come up with a new strategy to cope with the changed situation. One mistake – unless we have a stack so tiny that the only option is to take our chance rather than passively give in by being blinded away – is that, guaranteed a decent prize but behind six or seven players on what is left of the leaderboard, we almost immediately throw caution to the wind and gamble in an effort to have one of the bigger stacks. Every final table sees this happen, usually with this player exiting with a far from strong hand when, in fact, it would have been possible to sit tight for a while and wait for genuinely favourable opportunities, only pushing all-in if it becomes absolutely necessary. Moreover, with other players – even those above us – gambling away their survival, it is not unusual to be promoted from 8th/10 to 6th or 7th/9 within an orbit or two of the final table getting under way – patience, even at this stage, remains a key part of the game.

Often such an elimination will be thanks to someone with a huge stack taking it upon themselves to go head-to-head with gambling short(er) stacks, sometimes with random, mediocre hands. It’s important – for now, at least – to forget about runaway chip leaders rather than have a go with, say, KJ after seeing them risk a few thousand of their enormous stack with 89 – unless circumstances dictate it, there’s no point being around a 60-40 favourite (KcJs v 8h9h is roughly a 60:40 match-up) if we’re healthy enough to pick our spots.

Nevertheless, as usual, we need some kind of happy medium, ideal situations being when we get involved with premium hands while someone is trying to steal, a player goes with a lesser hand or someone has reached (what they perceive to be) a critical, desperate stage.

It is imperative to keep in mind our position relative to the other players in terms of where the different size stacks are. This makes certain players safer/riskier than others, which we should factor in to the decision making process.

Throw in the occasional steals against passive players – which are easier to make if we have started the final table patiently and thus earned ourselves a solid, not-to-be-messed-with image – and it becomes much easier to pick our way through the minefield while others self-destruct around us.

By employing a patient, solid (not passive) and ultimately aggressive strategy we should be able to remain in contention until there are a handful of players and, consequently, win a bigger prize than had we initially lacked discipline. If we do manage this and find ourselves lagging so far behind the rest then, far better now to take our chances all-in and finish 5th, for example, than do the same with all ten players still in the game.

Good luck at the tables!
