The temperature is hotting up – at least in Malta, which is preparing to host the €1M Battle of Malta, 26-31 October. This will be the MPN Poker Tour’s biggest ever event, which is reflected in the value of the latest packages to be won.

So, we’re giving our players plenty of notice about the upcoming €200 buy-in MPNPT Sunday 5 Package Final, which will guarantee five €1,800 packages!

Options this October: hide away from the gloomy weather, or escape to a popular Mediterranean island known for sun, sea and loads of other things you could be enjoying, with some big money poker thrown in. All courtesy of 32Red…

It’s a no-brainer. In fact, this is the perfect time to earn a place on Team32Red. Even the Side Event which package winners also win the buy-in to promises to be a tasty competition. Meanwhile, a host of activities and parties and general non-poker fun mean that the €1M Battle of Malta will be a great holiday both on and off the tables.

As well as logging on on Sunday (kick-off is 7pm UK time, with two hours late registration) and simply buying in directly to the mega satellite, there are numerous ways to sit down at a bargain price. If you go to the Poker Lobby and take a look at our schedule, you’ll find a range of so-called Feeder satellites to this and other Package/Seat weekly finals. And to make the qualification process as player-friendly as possible, we’ve made it just 55 cents to start the quest!

Have fun at the tables, and we’ll see you in Malta…

Festival of Speed

Festival of Speed (8-25 June)

Poker is no longer about grinding away for hours with the intention of securing a few big blinds’ worth of profit. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with such an approach, but most people have a limited window in which to enjoy time at our poker tables, which is why the emphasis nowadays is increasingly on having a good time. Poker is entertainment, after all.

With this in mind, our Festival of Speed, which will run between 8-25 June, is sure to set the pulses racing because it’s all about speed. Time – more specifically, what we can achieve in a limited amount of time – is a key factor of modern-day online poker. It’s always interesting to see how differently we perform when this particular element is tweaked – can we make the same, tactically sound decision whether we have a minute or seconds in which to think? Do we become so impatient while waiting around to get involved in a hand that, as soon as we fold, we’re so eager to taste the action that we find ourselves committing chips with mediocre cards?

The Festival of Speed covers both these subjects, in fact. First, we have a Super Turbo Multi-Table Tournament Series – a juicy 39 very bankroll-friendly events where speed is of the essence and the more you can put yourself nicely ‘in the zone’ while those around you struggle, the better chance you have of helping yourself to a share of the €50,000 in guaranteed prize money on offer in the series.

We’ll also be rolling out a 32Red favourite in the form of Blazing Cannon. For those who have not yet had a go at this dinky game, it runs alongside our speedy Blaze Poker format, which is designed to do away with waiting around twiddling our proverbial thumbs by transporting players automatically to a new table and a new hand immediately after each hand ends. No delays, no hanging about for a hand to finish, but straight back into the action. Then, when you’ve won/shared a pot in 20 raked hands you’re brought to the Blazing Cannon video game, the task being to knock down a stack of cards with a burning chip fired from a cannon, with a chance of winning €1, €10 or even €100 in cash. Poker is never boring at 32Red!

The third part of the festival is Added Money Turbo SNGs. Quite simply, SNGs with buy-ins ranging from €1 to €20 will have money added to the prize pool, so it’s just a matter of heading to the Sit & Go section of the Poker Lobby and keeping your eyes peeled for the specials.

And, finally, don’t forget to make the most of the Bonus Promotion: Fire the Blazing Cannon twice, play 10 Festival of Speed events and play 15 Festival of Speed SNGs and you’ll earn exclusive entry to the €5,000 Festival Flash Freeroll (2 July).

So there you have it… poker goodies coming at you from all directions between June 8-25. Enjoy.

No Limit Poker: Heads Up Fun

October 14, 2014 by

Poker, of course, is a rich, complex game that comes in many guises and formats. We all have a particular favourite ‘perfect’ poker game which, ideally, we both feel comfortable with and can achieve a level of success from. The potential problem with this, like all manner of favourite things, is that not only could we be missing out on something equally rewarding, but sticking with the same recipe week in, week out also runs the risk of restricting our growth and consequently stifling our game.

A fun, action-packed, psychologically demanding NL poker variant is the adventure known as heads up play. Stripping down poker to 1 v 1 leads to obvious comparisons with chess, where strategy and the need for ceaseless mental agility are paramount. These factors are no less important in poker, which also has more by the way of bluff and brinkmanship than chess.

For those who have not tried heads up there are two quite different types, namely the Sit & Go  (SnG) and cash. These are clearly two independent animals, the former featuring blind levels that increase over time (with a frequency depending on structure), while cash games continue ad infinitum with the same blinds. Consequently the two formats share some skills but not others. A SnG typically starts the protagonists without too much of a healthy stack/blinds ratio which, in turn, makes for a more urgent approach than we might be used to. Moreover, before we know it, the tension increases along with the blinds, and we soon find ourselves making more critical decisions, hands being characterised by their not exactly having a great deal of play. Pre-flop all-ins become a key part of the game, as is stealing and re-stealing and so on.

Moving on to heads up cash poker, the constant cadence of the game provided by the almost reassuring fixed blinds affords players the opportunity to experience the most that their stack can offer. If deep-stacked play is your thing you could do worse than use heads up cash as a fascinating training ground.

Check out both heads up SnG and cash in the poker lobby, and have fun as you broaden your poker horizons.

Good luck at the tables!

Select your favourite tables types and stake levels by checking the box next to that stake level in section 1 of the client lobby.

You can carry on checking in section 2. By checking which tables you’d like to join instantly (provided you’ve selected the auto buy-in option) you can then click the Join Tables button and be seated and playing at every table you selected with a check mark. If you haven’t set your auto buy-in options, you will be asked to confirm your entry into each table but your place in the tournament or table will be reserved until the purchase dialogue expires.


Be sure to select the Hide Full Tables option to avoid opening a table that’s already full. You should also be sure and have either the Tile Tables or Custom Table layout set at the bottom of section 2 before you join multiple tables. With these options selected, your tables will be displayed just as you want them, ready for play. If you want to start from scratch or have one check too many then the Clear button at the bottom of sec-tion 1 will give you a clean slate to start afresh.

Omaha Hi/Lo at 32Red Poker

Omaha Hi/Lo at 32Red Poker

Omaha Hi/Lo

Following player feedback, we have introduced Deep Stack and Heads Up Omaha Hi/Lo cash games.  The available tables will predominantly be Deep Stack games with one lower buy-in table at each level.  We hope that Omaha lovers will enjoy the addition of these tables but will be happy to receive any feedback, good or bad!

No-limit Hold’em

We are currently monitoring the industry’s moves with regard to minimum buy-ins on No-limit Hold’em games.  Any changes that are to be made will be brought to fruition within the next few months.  We are also looking into the system we currently use to name our cash-game tables at the 32Red Poker lobby.

Just a sneak preview on some of our plans and ambitions for the future.  Good luck at the tables!
