Like all great poker innovations, the premise behind the Team Poker tournaments is a simple one. Team Poker tournaments are much like regular poker tournaments, however, the crucial difference is that 50% of the prize pool is split between individual winners, while the remaining 50% of the prize pool is divided up between the members of the winning team – this gives 888 Poker players a much better chance to walk away a winner! The buy-in costs for Team Poker are very low (entry to all tournaments is a mere $1), with tournaments held regularly throughout May and June.

A satisfying twist to the tournaments is found in the fact that the allocated teams for each tournament are named after an epic rivalry or sporting competition that is happening around the same time; for instance, May 13th saw a Team Poker tournament where the teams were split into Manchester City and Stoke City, mimicking the FA Cup final fixture that was being held. Future Team Poker teams include the Formula One battle of McLaren versus Ferrari, as well as Euro 2012's England versus Switzerland.

Competing in the Team Poker competition couldn't be simpler: interested players have to go to the lobby and look for Team Poker icon next to a selected game; after double clicking this they will be taken to the 'Teams' lobby and asked to register with their desired team; after completing these simple steps, it is simply a case of playing the best game of poker that they possibly can to help their team earn a share of the massive prize pool on offer!
