A Fish Party jackpot was hit last night, and that means all three players in the turbo Sit & Go won a share of the booty, which had reached €38,968.77 at the time! Not bad for a layout of €5…

Prizes in this format are determined by a spin of the fish party slots game once all three players have registered, and the return could be anything from twice the buy-in to hundreds of thousands!

There are five buy-in levels – €1, €5, €10, €20 and €50 – and each has its own progressive jackpot. Even the €1 level currently stands at over €7,500, while for the €50 game it’s an eye-watering €377,000+

Yesterday’s €5 Jackpot game was won by NeoNyx7, who was rewarded with a whopping €19,484.39. Djcitir finished 2nd for €11,690.63 and 3rd placed omahahaii had to ‘settle’ for €7,793.75, which must be the best prize for finishing last that that player will ever receive…

€50,000 Sit & Go Booty

While it’s true that poker offers something for everyone, from low stakes recreational players to those seeking high-octane brinkmanship, one particular format is especially popular at all levels because it ticks numerous boxes – namely the ever-entertaining Sit & Go.

With only a handful of players – even heads up – a typical Sit & Go tournament takes just a fraction of the time of a standard multi-table event yet promises the same kind of thrills and spills. Add to that the more generous ratio of prizes in relation to players, and it’s easy to see why S&G is such a popular choice for poker fans.

With this in mind we expect April to be a Sit & Go frenzy thanks to our €50,000 Sit & Go Booty promotion! We are adding money – a massive €40,000, in fact – to the prize funds of tournaments (including Heads Up) with buy-ins from €2 to €25, and there’s also a €10,000 leader board to get involved in.

There are 450 leader board prizes, with €1,000 for the top player, and to battle your way up the standings through the month you simply earn points by cashing in the special Sit & Go Booty tourneys. For example, if you cash in a €10 regular added money SNG you receive 10 points, while a cash in a €10 Heads Up added money SNG earns 5 points. Simple.

Make the most of our Added Money SNGs, and here’s hoping you win your share of the booty!

No Limit Poker: Heads Up Fun

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!
