It's the world's fastest growing online poker room, but how well do you know 888poker?
If you've played there, you may have looked over all the promotions, checked your email for news and updates, searched for ways to make your poker buy-in stretch as far as possible, tried to find a table filled with new players that were easier to beat than one filled with grinders, and more ... or not.
Whether you haven't visited 888poker or you're a regular at their tables, we'd like to give you a proper introduction to the world's second-biggest online poker site.
Let's start with some interesting facts that may not have hit your radar but could be very useful in your trip across the virtual poker universe:

"What we want to know is what games have you tried? Which ones have you disliked and which style/pace is your favorite? Do you play certain games depending on your mood or circumstances? Why? Are you after a chill time or a buzz? Do you think certain personalities are drawn to or more suited to a particular type or form of the game?"
Are you ready? There's cash on the line, and what poker player doesn't have a tale to tell?
888poker Teams: Play for your team and win cash too! Even if you get knocked out, you could still earn money if your team wins.

- $100 Australia vs. UK vs. RUS — buy-in $0.99.
