Previously known as Pacific Poker, 888Poker.com is the flagship poker room of the world’s largest online casino, 888.com. And that means lots of wild casino customers at the poker tables. Combined with big, high-value promotions, that also means a lot of Texas Hold’em players come to 888poker for juicy high-action tables and good bonuses.
The upgraded software (called POKER 6) offers players over 100 new features including improved search functions and layout, 3-D table graphics, integrated casino play, an always-visible cashier and improved multi-tabling abilities.
Other nice functions that stand out are password-protected SNGs and hand histories you can write on your hard drive and import to hand-analysis software tools. 888poker has also introduced a no-download client for Mac and Linux users.
In July 2010, 888Poker completed one of its biggest software updates yet – the new POKER 6 client – adding over 100 new features.
The previously OK software is now a veritable monster, offering great search functions, convenient table selection, great tiling/cascading functions for multi-tabling, instant access to the cashier, bingo and casino games and a vastly improved look and feel.
Beginners get a suggestion of six low-limit cash games and tournaments to click on in the lobby and get a seat right away. More advanced players can use the quick-seat function. Old school players can also open a classic poker-room lobby.
When multi-tabling, you can decide how you want to arrange the game windows right at the table and switch between tiling and cascading as you wish. In the tournament details there’s also a list of satellite tournaments to that specific event, which is unique and very useful.
888poker has also added a no-download client with the same basic functionality as the download client. Other smart additions are the “confirm all-in” feature and an action hand replay.
Another option is the web-cam poker feature which allows you to play against other poker players who also have a web-cam. There are dedicated poker tables for this feature to give the game a more live experience.
Real-money player statistics as of March 2011 show 2000 ring-game players at peak hours and 8000 tournament players at peak hours.
888 is currently ranked 5thoverall for their continuous traffic in comparison to other available poker networks. With an average of over 2,300 cash game players on a regular basis, finding action is easy (as long as you are within European Standard Times).

Big Guaranteed Tournaments
888 Poker has a nice variety of tournaments with buy-ins from $1 up to a few hundred. Tournaments are busy, fast and very loose with play at any level among the loosest and juiciest out there. Even the bigger buy-in tournaments offer relatively loose play.
Aside from its crazy loose play, 888poker is also known for its Daily Challenge series. Buy-ins range from the $12+$1.20 rebuy ($10k guarantee) on Thursdays to the flagship $75+$5 ($50k guarantee) on Saturdays to the $100+$9 High Rollers event on Tuesdays ($10k guarantee).
All tournaments draw a very solid amount of players – the $30+$3 Deep Stack on Fridays ($15k guarantee, 5,000 starting chips) in particular offers great value and play. Also drawing a lot of traffic are the frequent qualifiers to big live and online poker events like the European Poker Tour.
