Three of the WPTDS final tables will be streamed on the new channel. Here’s a complete schedule of those events:

BLAST leaderboards awarding players $5,000 daily

888poker has unveiled new BLAST leaderboards for fans of these jackpot-style tournaments. This gives players a chance at a share of $5,000 in daily prizes.

To give everyone an equal chance, only a player’s first 10 or 30 games each day count toward the rankings. Players can compete in one or both of the 10- and 30-game leaderboards.

To get in the action, players can simply go to the BLAST arena in the 888poker client lobby and click on “leaderboards.” Then click the “join” button to get started.
