Hilly Ehrlich , a veteran online gambling industry entrepreneur, has launched BeatTheBubble website, the first global bubble protection service for online poker tournaments across all networks and operators.
The service offers a safety net for any player against going out in the crucial stage of online poker tournaments, universally known as ‘the Bubble’ – an unwelcome reality for thousands of tourney players each week.
For 5% of the initial stake, players will receive a maximum of 125% of their buy-in as a payout in the event that they go out of the tournament in the bubble, giving players registered with Beat The Bubble website increased confidence with their plays at the most decisive moments of online tournaments and a psychological advantage over other players.
The new service will offer full cover for one, two or three places outside the tournament payout structure for all online poker tournaments with more than 32 registered entries at the time of the tournament start time.
“With thousands of poker fans playing tournaments around the world each and every day, ‘Beat the Bubble’ is a service long awaited by players whether amateur or professional," said Erlich this week.
"We hope that this service will eliminate the need for ‘bubble’ strategy and the frustration that accompanies any ‘bubble loss’ for all tournament players.”
The service will be particularly interesting to players that qualify from low buy-ins for larger events. These players will see ‘Beat The Bubble’ as an attractive proposition that effectively gives them extended payout places for minimal investment compared to their original stake, plus critical ‘bubble’ cover.
