32Red Poker is certainly a great place to try your luck at qualifying for ‘live’ poker festivals around the globe. The latest place on which to set your sights is Tbilisi, the historic Georgian capital, which this Spring will play host to the latest leg of the MPN Poker Tour.
Going from strength to strength, this tour is well worth winning a place in, and satellites start from (literally) pennies! Given that your potential reward for such a tiny investment is a €1,500 package, there’s no excuse for not giving it a go. Furthermore, there’s a format to suit all poker tastes, so whether your favourite tournament game is a standard No Limit Hold’em Freezeout, Sit n Go, Turbo or Rebuy you can plug away at the package to your heart’s content. To add some fun value there are even Flip format qualifiers, where everyone is all-in every hand (you don’t even have to be logged on to take part – merely registering is enough).
Remember that satellites and qualifying tournaments in general are unique in that your aim is to progress through the stages toward earning your seat, rather than ‘making the money’ – it’s a good idea to keep that in mind as you play, as well as the fact that these packages offer an opportunity to win big money (the most recent MPN Poker Tour, in Tallinn, boasted more than €20,000 for 1st place).
Meanwhile, the package alone is a bumper prize, including free buy-in to the Main Event, hotel accommodation for the festival for you and a guest, money towards travel/expenses and a drinks reception to get you in the mood…
Live poker is great fun and never fails to be a rewarding experience for poker fans, so give yourself a chance to play for big money in an exciting atmosphere in Tbilisi…

Thanks to the internet and the natural development and evolution of online poker, every poker enthusiast is sure to eventually play enough hands to experience some very bad luck. How many times do we see our near invincible hand lose on the river to a long, long shot? (too many…). While bad beats can be demoralising, we should be able to see the funny side and put them down to simply being part of the game. Read more
We just can’t help giving stuff away for free at 32Red Poker. This month, for example, during our Four Play promotion, which will run throughout October, we’ll be handing out free entry to two of our most popular tournaments, namely The Mosh Pit and Big Night In. And it’s not rocket science – simply play either of these tournaments four or more times this month and you’ll receive a free buy-in ticket to have another go in November (note that a free tickets will be awarded on November 3rd).
Poker tournaments come in various formats, and these two have a distinctive feel that has proven rather popular.
The Mosh Pit (€8,000 Guaranteed) is a daily rebuy tournament with a €22 buy-in and €20 rebuys. It is the nature of rebuy events that they can be fast and furious and, with a juicy prize fund on offer, the aptly named Mosh Pit is no exception. There are plenty opportunities to make the money (and earn your free entry) during the course of the month because this tournament is held every night at 7pm UK time. There are also satellites that provide discount qualification thanks to buy-ins as low as €2.20.
Meanwhile, our Big Night In (€7,000 Guaranteed) is exactly that. Starting at 8pm UK time – also nightly – this is a different set-up, being a deep-stacked freezeout with a total buy-in of €110. Again, satellites are available, from as little as €5.50, and the freezeout aspect lends itself to a quite different approach than the more bloodthirsty Mosh Pit.
As well as being able to earn free tickets just for playing four tournaments, you’ll also have the opportunity to take advantage of additional freebies this month, as we’ll be giving away over €10,000 in free tickets to both these tournaments! Satellites are always worth a go in order to sit down to play big money tournaments at bargain buy-in prices, but there’s even more incentive this month because, throughout October, we will be adding value to some of our Mosh Pit and Big Night In satellites in the shape of additional tickets! Indeed the total added value during the month will be over €10,000, so don’t forget to check out these value added satellites to make the most of the Four Play promotion.

If you missed it before you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy its re-introduction to 32Red Poker because it’s here until the end of March.
The attraction of Blaze Poker is the Quick Fold facility. Clicking on the Quick Fold button automatically folds your hand – without waiting for the play to reach you – and immediately sends you to a brand new table, with a new set of hole cards, and a new set of opponents. Not having to wait for play to come around to you and, subsequently, for a hand to finish when you have too poor a holding to get involved, can make a considerable difference to a poker session in terms of time. And herein lies the beauty of Blaze Poker – Quick Fold allows you to simply get on with it and make the most of your time.
Moreover, this format also helps maintain a higher level of solidity because in a ‘normal’ game we tend to be less patient and thus a little looser than we’d like to admit – such a weakness is less likely when we know that we’re maximising our hands per hour and can trade in a trash hand for two new cards in a second or two. And more hands per hour, of course (even without multi-tabling), means being able to fully take advantage of our excellent 30% Rakeback deal.
As for the fun Blazing Cannon itself, simply win 20 raked hands and a video game opens in which you have a chance of winning up to €100! Fire a burning chip from a cannon into a house of cards – avoiding pesky birds and UFOs, and see if you’re in line for a cash prize. When the game ends you’re simply dealt back into your cash game.
