Pik’em Poker – New Poker Format at 888Poker
888 Holdings, owning the 888poker brand, following the announcement of the development of a new Poker 8 client, announced the start of work on an innovative gaming format – Pik’em Poker. It’s become known about the start of work on the Pik’em Poker gaming format after a recent investor meeting of 888 Holdings, at which Itai Pazner, who holds the position of director of innovation, announced Pik’em Poker, calling it a “new unique poker format.”
In Pik’em Poker, 888poker users will need to choose one of two sets of cards, with which they will continue the hand. It is possible that, by developing a new format, 888 Holdings draw their inspiration from the game called Irish Poker. In Irish Poker, the player is offered 4 cards preflop, of which he must choose 2 to continue the game. This kind of poker was available on Full Tilt Poker, but disappeared after the acquisition of The Stars Group.
It is also possible that Pik’em Poker can become a single player at the 888poker casino (a kind of playtech pick-up from Playtech that owns the iPoker network). In Pick’em Poker, the player receives 2 cards and 2 sets of 3 cards each. Next, the player must choose 5 cards to make the strongest possible combination.
In conclusion, let’s say that, in addition to the development of Pik’em Poker, 888poker acquired Progressive Knockout tournaments. As for the release of the new format, then, most likely, the poker world will see it at the end of this month.
