Improved Features at 888 Poker

888 Poker have gone from a popular standalone poker room to a fully fledged thriving network, and have recently upgraded their software. Starting this month, players will be able to transfer funds directly to each other via their poker accounts. A new improved time bank feature will also be introduced, to give you extra time over those tough calls.

Hand Histories will now save direct to your computer, which means 888 Poker will now be compatible with Pokertracker and Hold'em Manager. They will also be debuting password protected private tournaments, where you can specify who attends or make an exclusive to take part.

Finally, and maybe most importantly, the deposit bonus has received a massive boost, so when you sign up to 888 Poker now you can reap the benefits of a 100% bonus up to $400. Don't forget that 888 Poker will soon be hosting satellites to the London Poker Circuit main event later on this year too.

$220,000 Rake Race on CEREUS

UltimateBet and Absolute Poker will be giving loyal customers more value for their time at the tables this month, with a juicy $220,000 Rake race. To qualify for UltimateBet's Points Race promo and Absolute Poker's Race Cards contest, online poker players must earn RAI$E Status Points at UltimateBet or FAME Status Points at Absolute Poker by playing in any real-money raked poker game between March 1st and 31st.

The 200 top earners in March on each sites leader board will share $200,000 which includes $15,000 for first place, $14,000 and $13,000 for 2nd and 3rd respectively and at least $1000 for anyone in the top 30. Rake Race players will also be able to check the leaderboard personally to see what prize they're playing for at any given time. An invitation to a freeroll for an additional $20,000 will be extended to the top 1,000 Status Point earners on each leader board.

More excellent value reasons to join the ever growing CEREUS network, especially when you consider the amazing $1,600 sign up bonus you can earn on top of that when you sign up to UltimateBet via Pokernews.

GUKPT Walsall Side Event Results

We all know by now about Sunny Chattha's success in Walsall, but what about all the other winners during the 9 day festival? With a seat into the £100,000 Champion of Champions event at the end of the year for all of them, winning a side event is still a massive deal. Dave Colclough is making an early surge on the GUKPT rankings with a 2nd place in the rebuy event, following his win in the PLO event in Brighton. Mickey Wernick is doing the same, having made three GUKPT finals already this year, including the main event. Tom McCready is a name you may not have heard of but will recognise his face from the Sky Poker Dictionary series, and he won the £250 event as well as making another final table.
