I do not know how the game will go on other limits,I successfully play the 0.10 limit.Play on the card or bluff, fill the stack until the end of the timing, because it is important to have an advantage in the stack when placing all the chips.Good luck to you, but I would prefer other rooms, since there is no timer

Just FYI in case you are thinking of playing Blast because of free Blast tickets that you may have received, you can use them instead on any tournament or SnG with the same value.
I am not able to use them on Regular SnGos... I theres only a few pre determined same value tournament that you can use them...Were you able to use them because I would love to use them in something else

In my opinion this is a casino, not a sport. Rake reaches 10%, I do not understand how in 2 minutes you can beat it. In this format, I prefer the PokerStars spin&go.



I completely agree

even if you play decent, in the end it’s not up to you. so it's pure luck and nothing more.

I regularly play BLAST tournaments on 888. I read in the forum that most members lose. that may be correct because then you are probably playing against me :D. I win regularly and have already built up my bankroll quite well with these types of tournaments. Tip: don't play against me.;)

Really, is it only about lucky??

Or Is there any way to have more chances on that game??

Just few minutes to choose the right cards... I really didn't understand that...
If you guys already won, how did u do? any strategy to teach??
thanks!:bandit:


Played 6 tournaments for $ 1 each. Lost everyone. The last 4 are with AK suited, 77, A10 and JJ. Always ahead preflop. All six flips were won by the player on the button. Just a coincidence :D

The higher blasts have a longer timer and more starting chips so they play fairly normally many games finish before the timer runs out but yes luck plays its part.
Mix it up be aggressive but vary your bets including checking big hands to trap as most players are all in aggressive very loose without great hands in this format.
If find yourself against the same villains over and over again watch how they play note what hands they are shoving be patient when blinds are small.
It is a bankroll rollercoaster after these last 1o games got me +$200 for the day today I finished my session you got to know when to end your sessions win lose or draw set a stop loss too.
Playing too long especially when it is late and your getting tired is a recipe for disaster in these type of games they can tilt you easier than most poker formats due to the variance and the timer running out.
Basically adapt to blind levels focus on your cards and opponents tendencies win a few buy ins I am out might not play blast for a long time after that and play freerolls or tournaments instead for example another day.
I will also admit some of the opponents in this game are very good players after scoping them they could easily beat me and make me hit my 10 buy in stop loss no shame in quitting while ahead that is how you win at blast I think.

I try to end my sessions before they start in these games.

I even found the ones played with free tickets to be tilting. One thing is certain... lots of bad players in the cheapest ones.

It's almost impossible to beat these games in long term with that 10% rake for 2 minutes of play

I think blasts are a discipline for fun, i don't think you can make money there on a distance

Good evening.A waste of time and money,that is what Blast games really are.It is better to play them only with free tickets.I prefer to play the $0.10 10 Handed sit&goes instead.And , there is no way to become profitable in those games, specially in the cheapiest ones.

Run away from this roulette wheel. But if you still want to play Blast, play the $5 above as the time is longer. Open up your range a little more and go all-in with courage when you have big cards in hand.

It's soooo terrible, you could be ahead and it wouldn't even matter. I prefer to do the sit n go i think it's called on their site for more reasonable play

Answering your question objectively:
The best way to beat 888Poker Blast is not to play 888Poker Blast.
888Poker is one of the best rooms in my opinion. But their time-limited Blast turns the game into a lottery.

Blast is pretty lame, in my opinion. I do sometimes play a quick 0.10$ game or two for fun. It's sort of the poker equivalent of a scratch lottery ticket - and takes about that much time to complete.

I'm turned on to their double or nothing STT's. Cashed in 4 in a row so far tonight- easy money !

At the end, it's all just luck.

Just want to share my Blast game experience... :cool::cool:

I play Blast for at least 5x a day (just the $0.10c with 2m clock) and my win ratio is 3 wins out of 5 games. :smile:

What I always do is to not play garbage hands and bet with good hands (pocket pairs 77+ and 98s+). I don't call an "All in" even if I have the active stack. My goal here is to eliminate one (eliminating both is the best) by playing passively. Let villains bet and you call if you have a good hand. I bet small if I hit something on the flop. I just consume my timer if I don't have a playable hand and fold it or lets it fold automatically. :rolleyes:

The reason is thinking too much (are opponents in my range, equity, value) will not really help you when the 2min timer ended. It defeats or blast the purpose of all (I think) poker strategy. :angel:

My point is, gain points that is enough to get 2 or 3 hands when the blast starts and let your luck plays the rest. ;)

Note: Not to play seriously but enjoying especially when you have spare cents and want to just try a quick card game. :):):)

These games sound tempting but are are long shot, bingo mostly…
If it weren’t for the 2min timer they may be a bit better, but a small mtt is way more profitable in the long run👍

Luck is never shared equally. Recognize it for what it is.

I advise you not to contact 888 at all. This is a dirty room.

Don’t bother worst form of poker I’ve ever played ..the guy who knocks out the first player and dominates the second player always loses magically the 2 minute time clock is a complete joke
