32redpoker.com Review

// Published by Luke

32redpoker.com is part of 32Red plc a UK company listed on the London Stock Exchange. They are perhaps best known for being the main shirt sponsors of Premiership football club Aston Villa. They operate as part of the Microgaming network which has over 500,000 registered players and offers Texas Holdem, omaha, 5 card draw, omaha8 and 5 and 7 card stud. There are also extreme stack and turbo versions of Sit and Go’s.

32redpoker.com Tournaments

32redpoker.com have an interesting range of multi-table tournaments which are only available to players who have registered with them. They generally start early evening (UK time) so are ideal for their British clients who form the bulk of their player base.

$$$ Be the Bounty $$$ (BTB)

This tourny runs every Saturday evening and the top three finishers have a bounty put on their heads the following week.

This provides extra spice to the tournament as you can pick up a decent prize at any time if you happen to be lucky enough to have a “bounty player” on your table.

It also adds another dimension to your strategy when you are the bounty. It will be more difficult to bluff because everyone will be looking to try to knock you out of the event. However, the willingness of other players to play hands against you means a better chance to build a big stack. Can you adapt and cope with the pressure of being constantly targeted?

Win the tourny two or three weeks running and you will receive an additional bonus of $500 or $1500.

32redpoker Freeroll Tournaments

As a registered player at 32redpoker.com you will have full access to the daily Microgaming sponsored $200, $500 and $1000 freerolls. These are good competitions although do you do have to fight your way through a lot of opponents to cash. Smaller fields and thus better chances can be found in:

  • Fla$h Freerolls These are short-handed turbo MTTs. With only five people at each table, 500 starting chips and five minute blinds they are over in about one hour. The prize pools are only $50 or $100 but they are good fun. Most pots are all-in or fold so you generally are out very quickly or amass a good chipstack for the final table. If you are tired of waiting for premium hands these tournys provide a change of pace.
  • A $2000 New Player Freeroll
  • A $5000 Monthly Freeroll. As from 24th Feb 2007 this requires 50RB’s (redbacks) in order to enter
  • A Weekly $500 Freeroll. As from 25th Feb 2007 use 25RB’s (redbacks) to enter this regular Friday night freeroll
  • Lastly, but by no means least there are adhoc freerolls which seem to happen on an almost weekly basis. If Aston Villa have a big match, there is a classic horse-race or to celebrate a special day such as Valentines Day then the chances are that 32redpoker will sponsor a special freeroll. You need to check in regularly to take advantage of these
