Snowball Sit & Go
Become an unstoppable force like a snowball rolling down a hill getting bigger and bigger as it goes. The brand-new Snowball Sit & Go boasts an incredibly fast tournament format and is the optimal refreshment on a hot summer's day. Blinds go up slowly at the beginning but after a steady start, they will put an avalanche-like pressure on you. Make sure that you're ready when the blinds increase from every 10 minutes at the start to 8, 6, 4, 2 and finally every minute! Try out the Snowball – you'll have a blast!

The Joker
The Joker is back and ready for some more crazy action! This popular Sit & Go format is returning to the tournament agenda and is now even bigger and better than ever. We have doubled the Freeroll prizepool to a massive $1,000 and added another nice $1,000 to the pot which you can claim via the weekly Leaderboard! Simply ingenious! It doesn’t get any crazier than this. The Joker boasts quite an unusual prize structure: 50% for 1st, 30% for 5th and 20% for 9th place will guarantee you an innovative and exciting poker experience.

Even if you don’t make it into the money, you can still get your hands on some cash. Losers will receive a “I lost the Joker” Freeroll ticket where they will have the chance to take part in a weekly $1,000 Freeroll tournament. The tournaments take place every Saturday from 19.06. to 24.07.2010, at 18:00 (GMT +1).

Chip Chaser
Get into attack mode right from the start. The "no blinds, just antes" structure promises fast-paced play and rewards bold moves. Prepare yourself early for the all-in slugfest after 10 minutes!

The Contender
Each tournament guarantees cold hard cash, and all you have to do is earn a certain amount of points in any given month to receive a ticket for one of 5 different classes of freeroll. The more points you earn, the better the freeroll you enter.
