888Poker Introduces Teams Poker
Friday, 4. March 2011

888Poker introduces their Teams Poker promotion, a new social poker experience. Players can play for their favorite team and battle it out at the tables. Each week, 888Poker will be adding new special Teams Tourneys where 50% of the tournament prizepool is shared amongst all of the players of the winning team.

The idea is fairly simple. 888Poker will be hosting special tournaments running parallel to various team sporting events. Players select a poker team corresponding to the name of their favorite team in the game. The Team Poker tournaments are just like regular poker tournaments with the exception that 50% of the prizepool is divided amongst the individual winners in a standard tournament payout structure and the other 50% is divided amongst the players of the winning team. 888Poker calculates the team scores on the basis of the average points generated by the players on each team. In this way, even players knocked out early on the tournament still share in the team prize.

Follows are the upcoming Team Poker tournaments:
