Usually when you hear about Liverpool Football Club’s Uruguayan Superstar Luis Suarez signing for another team, it is covered in the sports pages of the local press and is usually based on little more than educated guesswork.
Therefore, it’s perhaps unusual to bring you real news of Suarez signing for a new team here in the poker section, but that’s precisely what we have done!
First up though, there is some big news from Terminal Poker, who are bringing its customers a chance to become part of the fastest growing poker network online.
If you play at Terminal Poker then you’ll already have a good selection of poker games to choose from, but from the 21st May 2014, you’ll be able to participate in a brand new selection of games as the site becomes a host for The Hive Poker Network.
The Hive is a relatively new network that is already enjoying excellent support from poker players. It hosts a large number of cash games, Sit & Go events as well as multi table tournaments, all at a variety of buy in levels to suit the pockets of all players.
The Hive also offers an outstanding number of promotions including a special tournament every Monday at 19:20 for players who have lost at the cash tables in the previous week. There is also a VIP club, a Sit & Go leaderboard promotion and jackpots available for high hands if playing Omaha.
With a huge number of promotions and extensive freeroll events offering real cash prizes every day, The Hive Poker Network will certainly increase the appeal of the Terminal Poker site for many users.
The Hive Poker Network is set to be officially unveiled as part of the Terminal Poker site on 21st May 2014 and with it, Terminal Poker players will gain access to a whole host of Cash Games, MTTs and Sit & Go events, including some exciting freerolls, with new games starting every minute.

With the World Cup on the horizon and an excellent Premier League season behind him, it’s not unusual for the current PFA and Football Writers Footballer of the Year, Luis Suarez, to be on the sports pages, often linked with signing for another team.
But in the first big news of the summer, we can reveal that Suarez has already signed up with a new team as he has just become the latest big sporting superstar to be signed up as an ambassador for 888 Poker. Suarez is the latest of a trio of sporting superstars to endorse the site with cricketing legend Shane Warne and Ultimate Fighting Champion Georges St-Pierre also acting as 888 Poker ambassadors.
888 Poker have stated that Suarez will become a key member of the 888 Poker team and that he will also play regularly on the site, participating in live and special events as well as promoting the site through a number of “money-can’t-buy experiences" that players on the site will be able to attempt to win via tournaments.
There are some within the industry who have viewed Suarez as a surprise signing for 888Poker, especially given his chequered history as a footballer, with several lengthy suspensions and unsavoury incidents occurring throughout his career. Yet with the World Cup on the horizon and Suarez undoubtedly in the finest form of his career, it is a risk that 888 Poker are willing to take.
