At 888poker, we’ve listened to our players and what they want is lower buy-ins with bigger guarantees. With that said, starting Thursday, May 3rd, we are pleased to introduce our new daily tournament series called, Big Fish.

With $100,000 in guarantees DAILY and buy-ins starting as low as $5.50, this poker tournament series should appeal to all levels of poker players.

What the 888poker Ambassadors Have to Say

We checked in with our ambassadors to hear what they had to say about this new series.

First up, online poker tournament legend:

“The new Big Fish series is a great way for tournament players to win big via a low buy-in. These tournaments are made for mid-stakes players who are serious about the game but don’t want to necessarily invest a large sum of money. These are well-structured tournaments with low risk but high reward payouts. Looking forward to playing it!”

And, this is what four-time WSOP bracelet winner, Dominik Nitsche had to say:

“The new schedule on 888poker offers great value to our casual players. It’s exciting to see that people will be able to compete for big prizes for such low buy-ins.”

Finally, Twitch poker sensation, Parker “Tonka” Talbot nailed it with this comment:

“888 has always been home for the lower stakes player, and today it just gets better and better. These guarantees are definitely very competitive and should provide some awesome prize pools for the low stakes buy-in range on a daily basis!”

There’s certainly a theme here – VALUE for money!

We look forward to seeing all our ambassadors in the Big Fish tournaments.

Starting with the $5K and $15K GTD Big Fish

The $5.50 Buy-in Big Fish will give a big boost to our daily tournament schedule. These events start at 14:00 and 17:30 GMT every day.

And, with $5,000 GTD, in the 2pm event and $15,000 in the 5:30pm tourney, players are guaranteed value for money in both!

Next Up the $15K and $35K GTD Big Fish

The 888poker $33 Buy-in Big Fish delivers with massive guarantees every day. The two daily tournaments start at 15:30 and 18:30 GMT.

Both events have a $33.00 buy-in. However, the 3:30pm tournament has a $15,000 guarantee, and the 6:30pm tourney has a $35,000 GTD.

Last but Not Least the $20K and $10K GTD Big Fish

The $16.50 Buy-in Big Fish splits the two previous tournaments with a very affordable buy-in. With two starting times daily, what’s not to like about this event?
